Question about GE Profile WPRE6100G Top Load Washer
During the wash cycle, the hub nut that is located under the agitator becomes loose. It must be tightened after each wash.
You do not have a "high torque" motor (which would have required motor replacement along with these other parts).
Install a new hub washer WH2X1199, split ring WH2X1195, and hub nut WH2X1193. Inspect the hub on the inner basket for wear. If it is worn, the entire SS inner basket (WH45X10060) will also have to be replaced to prevent continued problems. If possible, tighten hub nut with torque wrench to 110 ft-lbs. I hope you did not purchase from Sears. (Sears sold machines are sold with NO FACTORY WARRANTY of any kind. For those, GE will tell you to call Sears.) If not from Sears, you may be able to get some assistance from GE customer relations if you need the inner basket. Your machine was manufactured in Nov. 06, so most likely was purchased over one year ago.
Note: If you look at the board on the top portion of the motor, you should see a LED light flashing on the right front side. It should flash about 1 second on, 1 second off (unless motor running, then .5 on, .5 off) Other flashes indicate various problems. To reset code if necessary, unplug motor for at least 15 seconds, then plug in, wait 3-5 seconds, then open and close lid 5 times within next 10 seconds.
If this does not rate a Fix-Ya for you, please don't bother rating, as I don't like to see my score drop after giving this much free advise.
