    Default Noisy GE Washer

    Is this GE a little too noisy agitating? Seems normal on spin but noisy agitating. Tranny? Belt?
    Oops, give me a minute.

    Yes.

    Tranny? Belt?
    Remove the agitator first and retry....if still there, tranny would be the suspect.

    Hoping it is just the agitator and not the tranny.

    Main problem seems to have been the pulley getting against the plate at the bottom of the cabinet that GE's have. Not sure if the suspension rod/springs are weak or if the bottom just got flexed during a move by someone. Thinking it might be 6 of one and 1/2 dozen of the other in this case. Their position does not seem to change much in relation to the bottom of the cabinet regardless of the load of water in it.

    It may be just a very slight noise in it still. Have another question I will ask on a sperate post concerning this machine.

    P.S. What if the bottom plate is removed? Never seen much use in these bottoms.

    There isn't much strength there, I'd be afraid of the cabinet collapsing.

    Upper supports or upper cabinet twisting/flexing downwards?

    Thought yhat bottom plate migjt be for bracing even though they can get kind of flimsy.

    Didn't think to check the top pieces. I have had to add bracing on these. First one I have to deal with in awhile and it is noy mine.

    Thanks
