Question about GE Profile Harmony WPGT9360E 4.0 Cu. Ft. King-Size Washer with Stainless Steel Basket

1 Answer

Random unit not working properly.

I have a new GE Profile Harmony top loader. I washed 5 loads in it the first day with no problems. Second day, while washing a load it says there was a problem with the unit. I ran the diagnostics as I read on previous posts. When I held down the MY CYCLE & BACK buttons..it said the error was with the motor not working correctly. I unplugged the machine for 3 mins and plugged it back up. It ran thru the initial diagnostics again and said there was no problem. It then completed the load of laundry. Does this unit have a defective motor? HELP

    I haven't found a solution to my washer. It spins sometimes and sometimes it doesn't. When it doesn't spin the diagnostics says there is a problem with the motor and I should replace it. How hard is it to replace the motor?

    Thanks

It is very easy to replace the motor, however you most likely only have to replace the Hall sensor on the motor. To do either, you will have to lay machine on it's side. One bolt takes off outer part of motor, and if I remember correctly, six (10mm socket) bolts to take off the inner parts, plus a couple phillips head screws for wire retainer and ground wire. Hall sensor is the white plastic part clipped on the inner part of the motor.

Your pump might have something in it. I got a shoestring out of one the other day. Remove the front panel and inspect the pump.c8963d3.jpgbottom right of the photo is that clogged pump, The top does not pop up. The front panel comes off.

Not enough water to wet all the clothes.


Either the water level switch has bad calibration or the water level tube has lost its air seal and needs to be refitted and air locked. If you do not know how to go about these tasks, call someone with experience. Goodluck, Macgivor

GE profile top loader washer will not fill with water at all!!


do you hear any humming when it asks for water? do you have flood stop hoses? if you have flood stop hoses take them off this could be your problem. sounds like the unit thinks its full of water if it only washes and spins sounds like you have a bad pressure switch. this should be a covered repair if the unit is brand new. let me know if you have any other questions

Moldy smell inside GE profle top loader washer


Check the pump and make sure that it is draining the water. There will always be a little water left over but you should never be able to hear it very easily. Once you check the pump and make sure it is operating properly check the water sensor to make sure that it is acuratly reading the water hieght. After that take one cup of Vinegar and run a hot load of water will kill the mold and clean your system out

HELP, GE profile harmony washer wont drain properly


If you remove the tub to pump hose from the pump and try to turn the pump impeller by hand, it should turn freely. If it does not turn freely, then the motor could be seized and you will need to replace the pump.

Ge Profile Harmony Washer doesn't drain properly.


It sound like you have a blocked pump. Remove the pump from the machine and check where do you have this clogged, inside the pump or in one of the pipes connected to it. Good luck!
