Question about GE Profile WPRE6100G Top Load Washer
The washer will not agitate or spin. When moving the agitator by hand, it will move in one direction, but will not move in the other direction. I believe this eliminates a few problems.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I solved the mystery of the non spinning washing machine by GE. I pulled the agitator off and to my horror was a broken " hub". This the part in the middle of the basket under the agitator. The transmission shaft comes up through the center of it. Any way, it was severely broken and wedged in so it would not spin. Not sure if this is the only problem but I am going to buy a new machine. I can not get it unbolted to replace the hub and don't want to **** around with it. THANKS.

Pull the agitator out and check the drive collar splines.If you have the model I think you have just pull straight up on the agitator. Once removed you will see the drive collar with a 7/16 head bolt,remove it and pull off the collar.First before pulling it off spin it if splines are stripped it will spin freely.

Hello, your problem is going to be with the lids switch, in this machine it is going to be a magnetic contact. You can confirm this my pulling the front panel off and accessing the wireing to the lids switch, If you have electrical knowledge bypass the lid switch using a wire nut and run the machine. If all is ok make sure you relpace the lid switch since it is there for a reason. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!!!

I see this pretty regular. You have a bad transmission. This is very common with the older GE's. To replace the transmission will run around $340 / $400. Not sure about your area. Just be glad you got this much use out of it, you are one of the very few that have. From 1998 till 2007 I owned my on repair company where I did GE's warranty work in my area for them. During that time period. When I found a GE washer under warranty doing what you are describing. GE would warranty the whole machine. They would have me destroy the machine after I would deliver the customer a band new one. GE knows they had a bad transmission and it cost them a lot of money. It was cheaper for them to replace the washer than have me repair it. The transmission list price was $298.00 back then. A word of advice, when you replace it. Buy a Whirlpool, Kenmore, Maytag. These brands hold up the best. I have the least service calls for Whirlpool and Kenmore. Both are made by the same people. Kenmore is made for Sears. Good Luck.
Please rate this solution if helpful. Thanks
