Basket twists during agitation
« on: October 04, 2013, 12:33:36 PM »

Trying to learn how to fix these guys - During the agitation cycle, the entire basket twists back and forth about 2 1/2" to 3".  It is almost like a failed mode shifter but, I don't believe this model (GE WDRR2500K3WW) has a mode shifter. Is this normal for this model? Also, can someone tell me if this model is considered a hydrowave? Thank you.

  That is normal for this type washer, it is not a hydrowave, it's the previous GE version with transmission. It's not just the inner basket that does this, it's the entire tub assembly.
