GE wcvh6260hww drum rubbing seal
« on: January 03, 2012, 07:07:34 PM »
A the wife called and said the washer was smoking and making load noises. When i get home to investigate i find some of the rubber seal for the door torn off. I checked the struts they seem fine. It does this about half the time we run it now during the spine cycle and cant seem to figure out what i might need to replace on this p.o.s washer any thoughts?

Sounds as if the rear drum bearing is trying to seize.

Remove the belt and turn the drum pulley by hand.
Look closely at the belt for burn/wear marks.

ok I will do that an check. Im guessing the bearing is not a serviceable part and would need a new drum? Hopefully it is the seal out of whack it is creased in some spots and another pc did tear off today when it was running.

if the bearings are bad, it will sound real load in spin, & spin basket will have alot of play ( move up & down)

It doesnt do that it rubs on the rubber seal and causes it to smoke and has torn some of the seal. I ordered the seal today hopefully this will fix it

Make sure your unit is level with the front just a little higher than the back.
