GE Shaft and Mode Shifter Assembly
working as expected
The part is installed and working fine for the past week. Only time will tell how long it will last, I'm hoping for another 5 or more years. This is an expensive part that I don't want to replace every few years. Walmart had the lowest price I could find anywhere. I used air powered tools to remove the large nut on the pulley wheel , it made for an easy job. Also, you will need a tub nut wrench.
First time ordering parts from Walmart. Reasonable price and fast shipping. Removing the old mode shifter requires a bit of effort. Make sure you have the correct spanner wrench and a pipe wrench to hold the shaft. A little PB Blaster helps to release the nut. Item includes a new tub seal.
Great price and worked great!!
Very happy that Walmart.com carried this washing machine part. I was very surprised, but it arrived very quickly, and the price was great compared to other on-line sites.
This is the oem part for a lot of GE top loaders. Check part numbers carefully. Nobody can beat this price.
GE HE washer model gtwn4950 lws/dws. major grinding noise on spin cycle, like the sound of a train. clicking during wash cycle. you will need this mode shifter, plus a new tub seal(rubber bushing) which is included with this mode shifter, you should probably get a new tub bearing cost is 17-25 since you are going to be replacing the mode shifter. good luck on trying to remove old (original) tub nut under agitator. soaked with penetrating oil for a day, nut would not budge with repeated pounding on wrench. ended up having to heat with map gas torch, propane torch just didn't get it hot enough. before you try to loosen tub nut, make sure to jam up the pulley on the bottom of the tub with a block of wood or hammer. and have someone hold tub while you beat on that wrench. good luck. it will be worth it.
