GE Washer is Loud During Spin Cycle? This Could Be Why.

Check these 4 possible reasons why your GE washer is loud during spin cycle.

Washer Unbalanced or Overloaded

Washing machine making loud banging noise on spin cycle? This is not uncommon with top load washers. You may have laundry that is heavier inside the washer on one side than the other. If this happens, simply open the washer and adjust the load to rebalance the tub.

If you find your GE washer is loud during spin cycle, be careful to add laundry as evenly as possible to all areas of the tub to keep it balanced during the wash cycle.

Broken Drive Pulley

Worn Out Drive Belt

Is your front load washer making noise during spin cycle? You may have a failing drive belt. The drive belt is used to connect the drive motor to the wash basket (front load) or transmission (top load) in your washer.

Inspect the drive belt to determine if it shows signs of wear and tear or no longer fits the tensioning device properly. If the drive belt is defective, replace it. Note: Refer to your owner’s manual to ensure your purchase the correct belt for your model.
