Title: transmission
Post by: JPG on April 04, 2008, 08:41:28 AM
HI

I replaced the xmission and the motor on this washer. The xmission came with a gasket . Do I take out the little round one and the big older gasket out, than put the new one in?????????? I think the instructions said it replaces both the older gaskets??????? I left the little round one in ?????

Everything works good , except when the customer puts in a large load of laundry than the motor just humms durning the wash cycle??????? If i remove a 1/3 of the clothes it works??? If u put to much laundry in these machines is that normal?????

Thanks for the help this web site rocks !!!!!!!!!!!!!  JPG

Wish I could help you out there. But I don't know much about that G.E.

Maybe one of our other techs will have some answers for you soon.

Well, I took the whole tub out of the washer put it upside down and removed the legs, etc. The xmission came with a large gasket, it said the gasket would replace the other older 2 gaskets I think>>>So I replaced the big gasket and left the little round older one there.

Is it common if u over load these w/ a lot of laundry they wont agitate???  Sorry no pictures//  Jpg

did you replace the agitator drive block? This mounts under the agitator. The agitator will pop off if you grab it by the neck and give it a good yank,

If this is a comparable model to our American GE, there is a clutch mounted to the motor which may be at fault. Here's a copy of the GE topload washer manual (http://repair2000.com/Library/GE%20Top-Load%20Washer.pdf) for you to look at and compare with what you have there.

there is a large grey plastic washer that sits on the trans shaft, look inside the machine where the trans is closest to the tub bearing on the underside of the tub, it should be on the trans shaft between the trans and the tub bearing

the weight of water and clothes causes the plastic tub to drop when full, this washer reduces friction between the trans and tub during heavy loads

is it possible you missed or lost it during the transmission change?

look on old trans shaft if you still have the part
