maybe the concrete balancing weight has come loose and the fact that most of the water has been drained off when you turn it off for 10 seconds it does not have the one-sided affect anymore also check the damping springs as one may have come off in the violent spin eric

It might be grease from the bearings due to a failed seal.

sounds like possibly a sloppy bearing causing the drum to wobble excessively nothing can be done to avoid this other than change the bearing. always assuming your load isn't seriously out of balance of course.

Hi Margaret
I'm having trouble finding the model or brand numberrs you've provided. If you look here
you can see a selection of GE washer handles and their part numbers.It's selected for General Electric for vendor since GE manufactures

Good Luck!

The WMF540 motor is usually quite robust, depending on the symtoms.... I would look at the Main control panel, and check the brushes on the motor.

Either it not getting water, or the motor brushes are worn out.

It's probably just caked with powder or conditioner and needs cleaned. Your handbook gives instructions on how to remove the drawer. Alternatively the dispenser to drum inlet hose may be blocked and some hot water may clear that.

Disconnect from the power socket. Leave for 5 minutes.
If still not opening, ensure it is not plugged in and remove the lid by unscrewing fixings at the back and sliding forward.

Catch can then be released from inside casing by sliding lock bar.

Will need new door interlock assembly.

There are many reasons that this could be noisy...

When you turn the drum (quickly) when it's empty does it rumble? Bearings, drum support or motor bearings.

If it sounds like a pneumatic drill when filled and spinning it could be drum support, bearings, balance weight or suspension.

These are not an exhaustive list but the usual suspects.

Hi, if you have located the right switch then heres how to test it.
UNPLUG THE WASHER from the mains.
On the pressure switch you should see a plastic pipe, follow it down away from the switch and disconnect at the other end.
If all is quiet in the room, blow hard down the pipe and you should hear a click, this is the switch changing and if you have a continuity meter on the wires you should see it switch on and off.
These switches rarely fail so i suspect you have trouble elsewhere.

If it is not behind the lower front panel, there is none!
The tub bottom hose has a coin trap in the bottom, and that's it.
