    Default GE plley slack

    Model - HSWP1000M2WW Hotpoint

    How much, if any, play is acceptable in a top loading GE washer? It has a lazy agitate cycle sometimes then it will agitate normal during the same cycle. Tranny? Hmm, looks like this one has a mode shifter instead of a tranny like I was thinking.

    Maybe I will get lucky, and it will be the agitator coupler/drive block.

    This machine does not make any odd noises in operation. The lazy agitate is kinda like it is sensing. I have a tube connected to the wl switch and no water in it for testing. I noticed when I release the pressure on the tube and switch, it can take a little while for it to stop.

    Jeff, the couple I got this from said it had like a lazy or strained agitate "like the belt might be loose".

    I washed a load in it today. All I noticed was what I assume to be a sensing action (lazy agitate?). Then it did fine all the way through the cycles. Ii will try it a few more times. I don't know how long the previous couple had this. I'm thinking sure it was more than a sensing action, so I want to be sure about it by a little more testing. I thought I had seen it do the sensing thing then agitate a little and then go back to normal agitating the first time I tried with just water in it.

    Btw, Last night when I was trying to get the belt back on, I thought I would lose my mind with frustration. I di dsee the toll used nad thought I could do the same thing with two zip ties. One for the belt and one for the motor pulley to keep the belt on as I turned the pulley. Worked after a couple of go's.

    Sounds like it is....checking the weight of the clothes, amount of water needed, etc.

    Same here, we try the wire ties as well.
