G.E. service manuals seem to be some of the hardest to find.

I don't have one, but maybe one of the other technicians can come up with one.

GE Top Load Washer Manual   (1.8 MB)


I usually change the support rods when this occurs. Also check the 4 tub dampening straps around the top of the tub cover. Don't spill the Guinness :)

I see AJ has the same manual listed on the sticky topic for the G.E. board.

31-10008 Front Service Full Size Washer - Single and Two Speed 61 pages, 1.08Mb

Goes to show how much I know about GE.  :embarassed:

I can tell you what that shaking probably is. That washer has 4 bungy straps that keep the tub from shaking. If they stretch and they do or one of them breaks then you will have shaking.

The new style GE is a piece of crap
The old style GE was the best ever.

Service manual was a great help.  Trying to replace the basket.  Wife put in a mop head with a metal rod and destroyed the basket.  Having problems removing the hub nut.  Turning in the correct direction based on the arrow, but it is not budging. 
Used WD40 overnight.  No help.  Any suggestions?

We use a special spanner tool to remove that nut. Works every time. If you are attempting this with a large Crescent wrench or pipe wrench, you'll need to tap it in the direction of the arrow with a large hammer.
