Question about GE Profile Prodigy WPSE4200A

GE Top Loader Model WASE422OAOWW Profile Prodigy

I have the above listed washing machine that came with the house I purchased. We were told it was brand new which makes it only about 2 yrs. old. I cannot even find this model number on the web site. The problem is the machine quit agitating and tries to electrocute the user by conducting electricity through the main body of the washer and it shoots sparks out of the electrical outlet. In addition, the machine will fill and drain if I adjust the knobs. I have had the electrical plugged checked and it is wired correctly with new wiring. The machine smells like hot burning rubber when turned on.

    Forgot to add, before it quit agitating it sounded like a rocket ship taking off. When moving to the spin cycle it will drain and spin briefly before getting hot with electrical currents.

I have a GE Profile Prodigy top load washing machine. Sometimes the spin cycle does not spin, sometimes it spins. It makes a clicking noise during gentle cycle


The gears maybe going out. Sometimes it is able to engage in the other direction which the spin, sometimes not. Washing machine have complex gears that in one way agitator works, and the other the gear locks to turn the whole tub. The clicking noise is probably the locking mechanism in the gears that has caused the whole intermittent problem.

Washer only spins


Have you tried to unplug the machine, sometimes the control boards can get stuck and if you unplug it for say 30 seconds then plug it back in, it may reset itself. otherwise you may have to call someone these are very complicated machines.

Will not drain during spin???


Most likely your outlet filter of the machine is choked with dirt or something; clean out the filter & refit. Of course after taking of the wall plug & siphoning out the water from washer.
