GE washing machine repair issues we can fix
There are front-load washers, top-load washers and combination units. Some have analog controls while others are controlled with electronics. The experts at Sears Home Services can perform repairs on all major brands of washing machines.
When you schedule a service call, our technician will diagnose the GE washer's malfunction and make repairs quickly. A repair technician can also recommend routine maintenance to give your washer a longer life.
Washing machine shaking or vibrating
Minor adjustments will sometimes cure excessive shaking or vibrating. The problem could simply be a bulky clothing item sticking to one side of the tub wall. Perhaps you just need to adjust the feet to level the machine.
But your problems could stem from more significant issues with your GE washer such as faulty shock absorbers or drive parts, or a tub bearing that is water damaged because of a broken seal.
Washing machine leaking water
Into the laundry area you walk, only to find water pooled in front or back of your GE washer. Check the hot and cold water lines and the drain line for poor connections, blockages, or wear and tear.
If the lines aren't leaking, it's time to call a repair expert. It could be a failed door seal on a front-loading washer. A clogged water pump filter can cause leakage, or the water pump itself could have blockage or failing seals and need to be replaced.
A minor problem such as a kinked or clogged drain hose can cause your GE washer to not drain properly. But it could also be a more serious problem such as a faulty lid switch, water level control, drain pump, or drive belt.
Washing machine not spinning
Overloading the washer or having clothes accumulate on one side of the drum can cause a GE washer to stop spinning.
If adjusting the size or balance of the load doesn't get it rotating, there could be a faulty part such as the lid switch, a failed motor or spin solenoid, or a frayed or broken belt. Poor draining (see previous) can also prevent the spin cycle from initiating.
Washing machine not filling with water
First, make sure water is flowing to your inlet lines. Check for a kinked or damaged line, or you could have a clogged inlet screen at the end of one of the lines. Barring those relatively small problems, your GE washer could be in need of a new inlet valve, lid switch, pressure switch, temperature selector, or even an electronic control board.
Annual washing machine maintenance
Conducting regular maintenance can help ensure your GE washer continues to perform efficiently and effectively. It can also prevent costly, unexpected repairs over time and extend the life of your appliance.
When you request the Washer and Dryer Clean & Maintain package, your Sears Home Services technician will inspect both appliances for proper functioning, wear and tear, excess noise, and water and gas leaks while also cleaning some internal components.
