Most machines have a back panel held on with a half-dozen screws; several around the edges in back and perhaps another couple somewhere in the middle going to a brace.
Before you even move the machine, I would recommend bailing most of the water out since the machines are hard to move with 80-100# of water in them.
The front and sides are typically bound together and have to be lifted free after a few screws are removed from the lower edge of the housing that attach it to a frame. It shouldn't be necessary to take that much off to find the problem.
If you have a Johnstone Supply in your area and need a pump or belt, they will likely have it and at a much lower price than a GE dealer. They sell mostly to tradespeople but I have never been turned away. 
Be sure to have plenty of old towels handy to catch some of the water if you have to remove the pump; they make a heck of a mess otherwise ;-)

GE Profile top load washer purchased 2003 water comes out from under washer when spin and drain cycle on. this not mentioned in trouble shooting area. think it is water pump or whatelse can it be?


It has to be in the water exit path somewhere - is there a pump sump inspection? Is there a hose split? Likely the drain hose, or where it connects to the machine. Has the pump split open? Can you remove the machine cover and inspect it while it is doing a cycle so you can see where the water is coming from?

GE WJSR2050T2WW Washer fills up,Spins but won't drain out?


The most common reason for no pump out is a blockage in the pump. Best to drain as much water as possible. (even laying the drain hose down to allow as much of the water to drain out as possible) Un-plug washer. Next, open the front of the washer by using a putty knife to push in and release the clips about two inches in from each side at the seam where the front panel meets the washer top. Pull the front panel forward and lift it off the bottom pegs. Remove spring clamps from inlet and outlet of pump with a plier. Remove two pump mounting screws to allow pump removal after unplugging electrical leads. Remove obstruction from pump. Most pump bodies can be separated if necessary. Reassemble, plug back in and test.

I have a ge profile wpre6100gwt top load washer it will drain water but will not agitate or spin


I would check your belt. From what you've told me, your electric pump is working and receiving power from your lid-switch, but your motor and transmission is not turning/agitating.

Meaning, your belt is most likely, NOT engaging or grabbing your pulleys to rotate the motor/tranny. Belts will ware and tare, just like your vehicle fan belts. Change it! You should be good!

If not your belt, your lid switch may be the culpret. However, from what you've described; very unlikely because your water pump is turning on and receiving power from the "lid-switch". The switch becomes defective after constant use and slamming/dropping of the door. The purpose of the lid-switch is to prevent accessing your clothes when in spin-cycle (dangerous)

Clogged washer pump


you have to take out the little motor that drains the water and clean it up , first you open the front panel or back panel depending of the model , second follow the DRAIN HOSE to where its attached to the DRAIN MOTOR , remove the motor for cleaning , its probably clogged.

GE Model WBSE2090A2WW - shut off intermittenly


Does the machine drain on its own or do you drain it manually? The drain pump may be jammed or seized. Try giving the door a light bang with your hand on the handle. The door interlock could be faulty. If the machine starts up after you hit it with your hand on the door handle, the interlock is faulty. Good Luck!!
