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.
