transmission / pulley
« on: February 17, 2010, 02:36:07 PM »

Hello:

I have a question on this washer... between the pulley and the transmission on bottom of washer is not tight. it seems over time it gets a click between each direction of agitation. the transmission was replaced 4 months ago but is outof warranty now. could that be just a bad pulley mayb a few of its teeth are missing? thats what it seems like...

If I change the xmission is there any thing else I need seals? pulley? etc. I noticed this happens on all ge washing machines over time the clicking just gets to loud..   tks     Jpg

Something might be in between. I think I read somewhere that you will hear the banging at the Start of the cycle and that is normal because the brain is doing a test to make sure the tub is in the proper position.
