SOURCE: Remove the agitator

The agitator is actually pressed on without mechanical fasteners . Grab the bottom of the agitator firmly on each side. Pull up with a quick, hard **** (careful not to hit your face). If this does not work, wrap a belt under the agitator. Grab the belt firmly and pull up with a quick, hard ****.

SOURCE: GE Profile WPRE6100G Top Load Washer. The hub nut loosens

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.
Thanks.

SOURCE: GE washer won't agitate

I had this same problem with our GE top load washer.  I just needed to pull harder.  (Note: The agitator is held in place by about a dozen L-shaped clips in a ring around the agitator's base that will release more as you pull harder on the agitator.)  Everything from the base below the large fins on up comes out together.  Grab the shaft above the fins and pull slowly and hard. I had to take the entire tub out, lay it on the porch, put my feet inside of it, and pull the agitator assembly out.  I wasn't able to pull it out while it was still in the washer.  BE CAREFUL! DON'T **** IT OUT; that might injure your back; just pull out slowly and as hard as you can without hurting yourself.  I was able to get it out successfully, but I am currently stuck at removing the bell below the agitator.  Good luck!

Clothing gets caught under the agitator wings like sleeves on shirts, strings on clothing ie hooded sweatshirts.


This is something that happens with most top-load washing machines. As long as the agitator has wings, stuff will get under them. That is one reason that front-load machines are becoming more popular.

String caught between the upper and ;ower half of the agitiator


Remove the agitator and clear the string. Agitators can be hard to remove, but they will come off. Usually have a nut under the top cap that holds them down then pushed down onto splines.

Clothes stuck under the agitator


I have the same problem with clothing getting trapped under the agitator. Strings from Hoodies, apron strings, bra straps be caught under it all the time. There is a gab between the agitator and the tub. I have owned the machine for about 3 months, I like it in all other respects but this is crazy!! I have never had a machine that did this. GE needs to address this and fix this issue. It is NOT a matter of making sure your pockets are empty before washing, anything that is thin such as a strap or a string gets caught!! I would think twice about buying this machine if you are looking to purchase it. I don't think this machine will last as long as my others, and I don't think I would recommend this machine due to this very annoying issue.

Apron string caught under the rod the agitator sits on. How do I take it off to remove the apron string


Is it a top loader if it is.

You can remove the agitator.
Remove the dispenser pops out, you might need a flat screw driver. After that remove the cover in the agitator.
There should be a bolt. remove the bolt and now you can pull out the agitator.

Now you can get the apron string right out.

Apron caught under wringer


Hi Karen,
That is a real pain when that happens, but let me see if I can help.
First on the top of the agitator or wringer you will see a small cover. You will need to pop that off to reveal the screw hidden underneath. Remove the screw and then the agitator will pull upward and off. The agitator on the hotpoint washing machine is really hard to pull off so you will really have to pull. When the agitator comes loose you will ofter be pulling so hard that you could hurt your arm on the top of the tub so be extra careful or get some guy to get hurt for you. Once removed I am sure the apron can be easily removed and all will be well again. Good luck to you and please dont forget to rate me. Have a nice day.

Drawstring tangled under agitator on an older GE washing machine.


You should be able to unscrew the top cap of the agitator ( may be left hand thread ) and lift off the agitator once the cap is off... They sometimes stick so you may have to muscle it to remove that cap..once lifted off..you should be able to untangle the string that is caught..
