A caution based on my experience with GE model WWSR3090T purchased March, 1996. related models: WJSR2080T, WJXR2080T, WWXR4100T
This is the washer line with the new all plastic tub. There is a metal dish under the tub that catches overflow from the tub. At the edge of this metal dish, directly above the drive motor, there is a hole for attaching a plastic tie-down for the electrical harness that goes to the motor. When overflow occurs, for what ever reason, it is directed to the drive motor. My drive motor failed after 14 months.
I have been trying to get a new motor for over a week. Perhaps the machine is so new that replacement parts are not available, or perhaps so many have failed that the supply has been depleted. If you have this washer, it is very easy to remove the front cover and look for overflow.
In any event, a plastic cover should be placed over the motor. The cover is removed by slipping a putty knife between the top and the front covers, at each side.
