GE has designed the front load washer to have an inherent design flaw and will fail.
The spider support is made of a softer metal, the steel basket and the pot metal are dissimilar metals in an acid which causes electrolysis to occur eating the pot metal support bracket.
The repair is $800 after parts and labor.
After contacting GE, they wanted to sell me a new drum for a discounted price. The regular price is $498 the discounted price $200 to get the part.
Then the pat would have to be installed. This problem is designed to happen and I feel it is dishonest to design a product to fail.
