Sorry I'm posting to an older topic but I am hoping to confirm my issue with a follow up question.
The issue I'm having is that the basket is spinning during agitation which eventually throws water into the overflow. It also take a very long time for the basket to stop spinning after the spin cycle.
This link http://www.appliancerepair.net/washing-machine-repair-6.html
suggests that it is the lower bearing that needs replacing:
Quote:"Another common complaint is that water mysteriously leaks during the agitate cycle. What is happening is that the lower transmission ball bearings are worn so the brake is not engaging fully. The basket then spins during the agitate cycle and and slings water over the edge of the tub. The basket obviously will not brake properly at the end of the spin cycle either. A lower bearing kit is available to rebuild the lower (ball) bearing assembly. See section 6-5."
The washer is a GE GJSR2080.
So my question is- Am I on the right track with this one??
I am quite capable of doing the repair but I would hate to do all of this for nothing!
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
