Replacing the glass lid on a GE profile washer

Hi,
my parents in law had their tempered glass lid on their GE Profile washer shatter, when they weren't even using it. GE coughed up a replacement lid, but didn't come to the party for the installation. Can someone please advise us on how we can safely install the new lid ourselves? We don't want to force it and risk shattering the replacement. Thank you very much.

    Hi,

    thought I should mention that I don't know the exact model of their washer, I am perhaps hoping that there is a generic method in installing the glass lids on all of GE's Profile washers. Thanks again.

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!

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

It is under warrenty call the store where you bought it and have them look at it. If you mess with it it will void your warrenty, belt may not be working or transmisson may not be shifting. The house call will be at no charge.

SOURCE: GE Profile front loader washing machine is leaking

Hello, this is usually the door seal, most machine incorporate a one piece combined door seal and outer drum seal(often just called a DOOR GASKET), the door seal are put in on the front panel first in the factory, then the drum assembly is put in and the seal pushed over the outer drum. This means a lot of stripping down has to be done just to replace the drum to the door seal.
Thanks

Ge profile wpre6150k1wt washer does not complete cycle. washer stops with tub full of water. Will not start again. tried unpluging to reset. this worked a couple of times but not working now


Hi

First make sure to test the lid switch assembly, you can jump it to test it. If the lid switch and motor is also fine then the control board should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

How do i remove the lid on a ge profile harmony washer?


Use a putty knife to remove the front panel first/
The putty knife will insert between thr top of the lid and the front panel about 2 inches in from each side.
The panel will pull forward then up to remove it.
Then remove the screws holding the lid down.
You may have to open the control console to remove the lid.

How do you remove the washer door


Thanks very much, but my husband found a way to remove the lid on the washing machine. There are 3 screws on each side of the lid that have to be unscrewed in order to remove the lid.

When the installer tested my newly purchased GE Profile washing machine, I saw him test the incoming water temperature with the lid open. How did he defeat the lid switch?


Hi, open lid , look carefully there's a slot where you can activate switch, use something none metalic, like pen and press to activate.

GE Profile wont spin,why?


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 wiring 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 replace 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!!! Thanks for using Fix-ya. A high rating would be appreciated for your free question :)
