Question about GE Profile Prodigy WPSE4200A
My GE Prodigy washing machine (model #WSSE4220) fills, begins to agitate and then stops after about 15 seconds. The machine smells like it's burning when the agitating stops. I've tried resetting the motor with the recommended opening and closing of the lid. I had no problems until some electrical work was done in my kitchen and the washer was still plugged in. The washer drains fine. Any suggestions before I buy a new one?

This machine uses an electric water pump. I would check to motor. Remove the front panel and operate the machine to see if the motor is working. Check this by listening to the motor and watching the belt. If you hear the motor but the belt does'nt move then there may be a problem with the pulley or motor clutch assy.
As far as not draining or pumping water ? Check the wiring from the pump to the control panel. If these wires are alright then i suspect the pump.

If the motor runs when it is suppose to be agitating, but the agitator does not move, pull the agitator straight up and out of the machine. Sometimes this is difficult, but you can slip a belt or similar object under the agitator, attach it to a broom handle and yank up on it. Now take the bolt out of the agitator drive collar and remove it. If you can not turn the splined transmission shaft with your fingers you are in luck and should be able to just replace the can shaped agitator drive spline. (part number WH49X10042 ) If you can turn that splined shaft with your fingers you are looking at a new transmission.

is the lid up during the filling process? the new washers will not agitate unless the lid is down. no need to slam the lid.. There is no pin to push the activator switch.. they are controlled with a magnet...

My rule of thumb: Take what you paid for the washer new and divide by number of years without repairs. That is your cost per year for the washer. If the repair will get you another year and is less than the number above do the repair. If you have done more than 2 major repairs in a year it is time to think new. eric
