1 Hour Old Washing Machine Scarping the Sides During Agitation?

In a huge bind here, especially with Thanksgiving being 2 days away.

I just had a new GE washer (GTWN4250DWS Top‑Loading Washer ‑ 3.9 cu ft ‑ White Washing Machine) delivered today (Just a couple hours ago) and after having to have the darn delivery guys come back with my old drain hose because the new one flooded my laundry room (an hour and a half after we called them!), I was finally able to try a load of towels. Well, it got to the agitation cycle after filling and it sounds like it may be scraping the sides of the washer????

Could it really be a belt or transmission problem already??

Any help would be so greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Anyone else by chance? :(


Did you make sure to remove all the packing material? Have you checked to see if there are any retainers for the drum during transport?


There was no packaging material and it was professionally installed.

Just getting a new washer tomorrow. Hopefully it is delivered in one piece and operates at 100% unlike this pos.

Thank you for the help.

Just a quick thought -- make sure the washer is level.
