Question about GE Profile WPRE6100G Top Load Washer
For a minute or so during the agitation cycle, and then again later on, the motor makes a clunking sound (from other things I've read, I believe this is due to the motor rapidly shutting on & off). How can I determine if the problem is with the motor, the lid switch (magnetic) or an electronic issue with changing motor speeds? Aside from this issue, the machine operates normally. The washer is almost 7 years old. Thanks in advance. Steve
Sounds like you need a new motor/transmission coupling.

The problem is the springs. Fixed mine for $48 with the kit. New springs are much stiffer and won't let the drum go crazy, Could never get past any spin cycle at any speed and now all is fine.

Not sure what clunking sounds like.
Your motor may not be shutting on & off It may be trying to start. Most motors Have a start capacitor & a run capacitor to help them turn. They do exactly what they sound like Start cap kicks motor to get it going. Which is more than likely whats wrong with yours. The run cap keeps it spinning by kicking it every revolution.
Now some start caps & run caps are built together, Others are separate the start cap is usually paper filled & the run cap is oil filled (help keep it cool).
*** Both capacitors store electrical energy (voltage amps) even when machine is unplugged they are very DANGEROUS & can harm & even kill you.
