Question about GE Profile Prodigy WPSE4200A
I can set a wash cycle and it will fill with water, go through the cycle without agitating, drain, rinse ( no agitating), drain and spin dry. No belts are lose.
if basket wont spin, remove front hatch by inserting spackel knife to trip spring latch on both sides,then check the belt for wear & tear.factory length is 29.5 " time will stretch them out, resulting in broken belt.check behind control panel hatch for diagram of machine for exact location of belt also can be downloaded online.
I hope this helps.ie overloading machine will shorten belt life.

SOURCE: Washer doesn't agitate
sounds like your washer went mellow on you(doesn't get agitated, right)?
ok. enough humor.
sounds like there's a problem with the motor/belt/control board in that order

Hello, If your washer doesn't agitate, check these:
Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
Motor coupler Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it.
Belts Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)
Clutch If your washer was made by GE®, it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.
Drive motor Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.
Drive pulleys The motor or transmission drive pulley may be worn and unable to turn the drive belt. If so, replace the pulley.
Transmission The transmission could have either of these problems:
Agitator The inside of the agitator--where the transmission shaft attaches--can become worn, and strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. Then the transmission shaft rotates back and forth as it should, but the agitator doesn't move properly. If this happens, you may need to replace the agitator and/or the transmission spline.
