Okay, it's me again!! Sorry.

I got the agitator off and took the screw out but the part won't come off. Should it pop off or should I force it off?

I seem to have the same trouble on the same model GE washer (wjsr2080t2ww) and I've read the entire session.

However, I turned on the machine and the motor seems to work, pump works, lots of noise, but no spinning or agitation.

I tried to turn the agitator while the washer was on and the dial was on the spin cycle and the agitator turns freely only clockwise. It does not turn counterclockwise at all. just ratchets clockwise....

Is this the same problem as the one talked about in the above quoted post? Or am in a new problem area?

Great Site. Thrilled to have found you and hope you can provide some illumination. I'm gonna buy your parts if you can help me.

-Glenn

Should see if the belt is broken, if not would suspect a broken transmission if the motor is running, and the belt is turning the transmission pulley...take the front off and see what is happening down below...

thank you for the link to the "pages of wisdom"...

From what I can tell, if it is either the  belt OR the transmission, I will be completely removing the agitator, tub and motor assembly to either replace the belt, or transmission.....

In other words, there is no quick fix for a belt replacement...?

I'm not opposed to the ordeal, just have to know if that is my future and want to prepare the area for the teardown...

BTW, do you know what the "capacity" (or however they rate a washing machine) of this particular machine is? (WJSR2080T2WW)

Just remove the front and see if the belt is ok, if so the tranny sounds like it is toast, known problems with these...5 year warranty on the part, when did you buy the washer...I have no clue on the capacity.. if the belt has to be replaced will just remove the motor to change the belt....do not even try to remove the agitator and transmission....

Ok, I'm headin' to the garage to take the front panel off and check the belt. Bought the set about 10 years ago...

Thanks for the guidance...

I'm BAAAACK.....

OK, so my initial perception of what was/wasn't working was wrong...

Took off the front to inspect the belt, it was OK.

So had wife put the controls thru the cycles and the motor noise I had heard was the pump pushing water out of the tub....

Large Agitator motor (the big square one that sits right in front) was not working at all throughout any of the cycles....motor did not spin at all...not clicks, bangs or sputters either....

So now I need to check the controls/motor/ electrical?

LOL, I am baaaack too at the house, closed my business for the day...start at the lid switch....might get a volt meter to see where you have lost voltage to the motor, assuming there is no voltage at the motor itself.....so start at the motor and work your way back...somewhere in that washer, probably in the console, should be a tech sheet of some kind with a wiring diagram...
