Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today
Good morning Daniel. Could you open the lid and check near the back for the model number. the one you gave isn't comming up. ? thanks , Bryan
Sorry, I have looked at all but the bottom of the washer and cannot find a model number. I have the Use and care guide...and that was the number I quoted before.
All I have so far is
GE Laundry "saver series". It looks about 10-15 years old.
Is there anywhere else I can look?
I've got the top off, but this isn't giving me access to anything but the drum. This is a top loader.
The only other number I can find is associated with the Ontario Energy Program...that is "2148802"
One other number that may help...on a paper sticker on the back warning about electrical danger is the number 238A5436P001
The surround panel is a one piecer...welded onto the upper part of the back panel.
I have removed the sheet metal lower part of the back panel ( 5 screws).
The belt is visible...and tight. All looks ship shape but no other ID numbers visible back there.
Wait a minute...I just found another document with the following ID for the washer
Got the label!
It is Model VW973KW118
I'll give it a try...Give me a minute or so...I'm old and weak.
I'll unclip the rubber tubing, tub to pump and pump to drain...removing the pump itself is above my grade.
Will a simple inspection confirm whether the drain pipes are clear...should I pour some water through?
Thanks...I appreciate your help so far. I'll continue cleaning out the tubes...finding a bit of debris but not much. If the pump is weak I presume this is a replaceable part.
