    It is hard to say what the noise sounds like. But kachuck kachunk kachunk it keeps doing that until it quits and dranes the water. I was thinking a relay is week and wont hold the contact for the motor. But yes the motor could be week.

    It is wierd because it will work perfectly for quite a while maybe until the motor gets hot or warm then it jams up. It makes the kachunk kachunk noise pretty fast then stops.

    the bearing might be shot also to check it you can look at them and see if they look like they are falling apart. and the other way you have to be kind of strong you have to try and lift the tub and and move it around and listen for a rattling noise that is a bad bearing.

    it also could be a bearing wiggle the tub while lifting it and listen for a rattling sound or a kinda of growl with a popping noise

The spin cycle on my GE Profile Harmony washer has gone violent, what can cause this?

probably unbalance load inside, try to stop, move what's inside and restart, or maybe there is not enough inside and cannot balance ( one heavy item, add some item so it can balance them when spinning )

How long does it take to complete a wash cycle


In a perfectly normal washer with decent incoming water pressure it should take 3-5 minutes to fill depending on water level size selected.

If what your experiencing is that your washer does fill yet it takes forever the problem is going to be with the water inlet valve.

I need to know what the buttons say on the dishwasher. Mine have no letters


Some SHX46 washers have 4 wash cycle buttons and others have 5. The button on the left side on top of the door is the start/stop button regardless of how many wash cycle buttons you have.

If you have 5 cycle buttons, reading from left to right they will be as follows.

1. Top Rack Only / Sanitize
2. Power Scrub Plus - (Long wash for heavy soil)
3. Regular Wash - (Economy wash for light to medium soil)
4. Delicate Wash - (Shorter wash at a lower temperature for delicate items)
5. Rinse & Hold.

These buttons are also used for cancelling a wash cycle. Hold down buttons 2 and 4 (Power Scrub Plus and Delicate) at the same time to cancel a wash cycle and drain the water out.

If your washer does have 4 buttons, it means you don't have a Top Rack / Sanitize cycle, in which case the button configuration - from left to right - will be:

1. Power Scrub Plus - (Long wash for heavy soil)
2. Regular Wash - (Economy wash for light to medium soil)
3. Delicate Wash - (Shorter wash at a lower temperature for delicate items)
4. Rinse & Hold.

With this button configuration, the cancel cycle buttons are 1 and 3.

I hope this solves your problem. If you need any additional information, please post back.

GE Profile WPRE6100G Top Load Washer My washer is 2 yrs old and has started to make a loud metalic banging noise during the wash cycle. It does not during the spin cycle. Doesn't seem to matter whether...

The "Metallic banging/clicking" sound you hear is the Shifter mechanism engaging or disengaging.
The drive system will engage at the start of the Agitate Cycle and disengage when the Agitate Cycle is complete. This occurs multiple times during the wash. GE claims this is a normal sound and should not be concerned about it. Check page 10 of your Operating Manual, if you do not have a manual, click on this link to download one

Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Washer will not complete the wash cycle.

faulty cycle switch. Try moving the switch manually when it reaches spin mode. Watch the switch when it reaches this phase of the wash/spin cycle to see what is does. If it jams or resets itself it needs to be replaced

GE Profile washing machine not finishing cycles

the OL error is for over load.that is when you over load the clothes in the washing machine. If your washer doesn't spin or agitate on either the delicate or regular cycle, check these:

Selector switch
Clutch assembly
Drive motor
Selector switch If your washer has a selector switch on the control panel, make sure the button for your selection is pressed all the way in, or set properly.

Clutch assembly Many GE®/Hotpoint® washers use a clutch and an automatic shift lever. This assembly is quite complicated. If there's a problem with it, you probably should contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

Drive motor Many washing machines have multiple-speed drive motors. Though it's uncommon, the drive motor may work fine on one speed but not on another. If the drive motor has failed on one speed, you need to replace the entire motor.
