Hi All... another GE Fun time:P  Mod #  WHDSR316GOWW   I'm working on this  newest style ge washer nightmare threw the belt off. Its Got that new flat style belt with ribs, another one of Ge's better ideas i suppose. Anyway the belt looks OK .. But the trans. pulley  has some play about quarter  to half inch up and down movement. I am thinking this might be why it threw the belt. I am wondering if ... It can just be tighten or is something else going on with the play in the trans. pulley. This trans. is a lot different for the older ones and so far i cant find much on it. Also when i looked up the belt  there was a belt instillation belt tool .. but looked like couple o rings and plastic parts haven't a clue unless maybe that's whats broke and need replacing with a belt ? here's a pic of the tool ... got # of the sears site http://www.repairclinic.com/Appliance-Parts?s=t-WX05X10102-%3d%3d Thanks for any help you can offer or if anyone has  a manual on the newest nightmare  :D

 Hi  I tighten the  trans. pulley and got the belt back on it, 
Got it going.. don't have a regular transmission, the motor go's one way a second the the other way is how it agitates
lmao what will Ge THINK OF NEXT while they laugh all the way to the bank

The "tool" is kinda optional; it makes a handle on the motor shaft to help turn the belt onto the pulley.  The star of the show is the humble tie-wrap.  Center belt on drive pulley and attach it with the tie wrap, as shown in the attached diagram.  Then center belt on motor shaft grooves and slowly turn drive pulley clockwise.  Keep rotating the drive pulley until belt is all the way on.  Remove wire tie and belt install tool.  Pop cold brewski.

the nut that holds the pulley on likes to work itself loose, make sure its tight. When you install the belt you will notice it wants to come off the motor pulley. The tool helps keep it from falling off. I found that if you loop the belt above the transmission pulley, and try to install it from above, rather than below, you wont have to fight trying to keep it from popping off the motor pulley.

Thanks for all the help,

  I just used a long screw driver and when the belt started coming down I just took the screwdriver and  slid the belt up a little at a time while rotating the trans.  pulley but the  tie like the master said was the real tool.

I also put a little nail polish on the threads under the nut to help the nut from coming loose,  used it in the past and worked good

Its Working again thats what counts .... Kinda funny how this thing works.. wonder how long these will last:D

Thanks again for all the wisdom:D

I had real hopes for this model when it came out, it is nice and simple. When they first came out they had issues with the tub nut coming loose and the wash basket would eat a hole into the tub. I havent seen any of those in atleast 6 months but im starting to see shift coil failures on ones that are about a year old. Im thinking they must have had an isolated bad batch because i havent seen the shift coil failures on any of the older ones.

I dont know much about this model havnt had nothing but this on it but

It seems to me that the problem would be with the motor with its circuit board control and the way it works with agitate plus GE  record with appliances thus far.

For the customers sake I hope its better then there last design lol ;)

just for the record... its not a transmission... its a mode shifter... its what locks/unlocks the basket depending on the action at the time...

i have recently found a ton of them with open coils.... anyone else run into this???

THIS IS MY LIFE--I mean machine.  I fixed it a few weeks ago myself.  I had the mode shifter with open coils.  Funny enough, your thread also mentions loose hub nuts.  I replaced the mode shifter and received many bruises along the way.  To get the hub nut off, I used a shortened pipe wrench.  Machine is working fine but I keep having the hub nut come loose.  The wrench I used was very awkward so I can't tell if I am able to tighten it as much as necessary.  It is pretty tight though and I used a hammer too.  Is there a reason the nut comes loose?  Do I need to purchase the spanner nut tool and really wack at it?  Is there another solution like maybe a "locking washer"?  some kind of glue to stop the nut from coming loose again?

         Thank you, Kimberly

Ther is also a mating piece to this nut- a split ring that sits conversely on the underside of the basket that may be damaged as well after having the loose tub spin upon it

i second the need to replace the split ring, you should also check your motor to see if its on the list of defective ones. I guess these motors have an issue that causes the mode shifter to fail.

Yeah,also the transmission is known to lock up, causing the basket to spin during agitation, another known issue - have changed a number of tranny's - not fun!

Where can I find the list of bad motors?  If mine is on the list but machine is over 1 year warranty, am I just out of luck?  So now that everyone says GE's are bad, what should I buy for my next machine??

 

Can I use this to install the hub nut?  It is only $20 compared to $53 for the other tool.





Spanner wrench for removing spanner nut on Whirlpool, GE and Maytag washing machines. Adapter ring is used on GE models.
