Question about GE Profile Harmony WPGT9360E 4.0 Cu. Ft. King-Size Washer with Stainless Steel Basket
When doing several loads of laundry in a row, the soap dispenser is full of water from the previous load. I have been pulling the dispenser out and dumping the water but this shouldn't be happening should it?
Check that your machine is level or set according to the manual.
If it is tilted forwards the water cannot run out of the dispenser under gravity, which is how it empties.

Based on your description, it sounds like the water inlet valve is making noise, since you hear a squeaking noise during the filling of the washer. If it sounds like a constant squeak or squealing noise, i'd say it's caused by either the water inlet valve not being pulled all the way open, or because the water supply shut off valve at the house end isn't open all the way. Try opening the water supply shut off valves all the way open, (check to see that they are).
What is interesting is that the squeaking comes back during the draining of the water. Is this while the tub is spinning or only at the very end of the cycle? Again, it could be the water inlet valve, since the washer will "spray" some fresh water into the washer during the final spin cycle to help remove any soap residue, etc.
The part ins't cheap at around $123.00 for this valve, so unless it's really annoying you to no end, I'd wait for the valve to stop working before getting the repair done, unless you want to do the repair yourself, which isn't difficult, with some basic tools and time.
If you wait and let this go until it fails, you'll notice the water in the tub might not fill all the way for the level set, or the valve will start getting even more as it gets worse.
Here's a drawing that shows your washer and the part I'm talking about.

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.

Testimonial: "thankyou for the help, I thought I had just made a bad buy. They sent someone out right away and it turns out this particular machine had a bad part."
SOURCE: Intermittent water on floor
Check the inlet valve hoses, even if inlet is at the back, the water may drip down and flow on the front part on the machine.
There you also have the PUMP, a faulty pump may leak intermittently.

We have a GE WJRR4170 washer, with the same problem. At first I
thought I might have to unscrew the entire control panel just to
replace the knob. However, replacing it turns out to be easy.
Right behind the knob, holding it in place, is a nylon/plastic retainer clip. If you pull out the knob (into the "start" position), you can use a flathead screwdriver to push the clip out. The knob then will slide easily off the metal stem. A GE replacement knob costs $9 or $10, depending on the source.
Shame on GE, but the knob is designed terribly. The part of it that engages the dial has eight, flimsy plastic teeth. At any time, four of these are supposed to engage four little slots in the dial. However, the way the knob is designed, there will be a lot of wear and tear on these plastic teeth, so they'll wear out on every single machine.
Good luck to the many people who will have this problem!
