Re: GE Profile Washer - Model WPS Q416OT2WW - Knob repair

Knob should have a small plastic cover in the middle that just pops off. From there you will see a nut or pin holding it in-place. Why are you replacing the timmer? (Timmer is a VERY last resort when working with washers) I'll check back later around 5pm

Good Afternoon Leszek - Thank you for your question. Based on the symptoms you are describing it sounds like the unit has a faulty timer or a potential wiring failure. Try reprogramming the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is important to wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on the unit. If issue persists, then at this point I strongly suggest reaching out to a professional that can accurately diagnose and repair the washer.

Installed new control asm on ge washer wbse3120b now all the lights are flashing and no power?

On you old control there was a plug with just a jumper wire. This is the model select plug. Without this plug the washer does not "know" what model it is on and the lights will flash.

I have a ge profile top load washer and the knob is broken how do I remove it to fix it? The cycle knob just spins I am unable to wash,

I would look at some of the internet appliance parts sites for a replacement part. Uusally a good illustration will give you a clue as to how it is attached. You can also contact GE internet site.
Worst case senerio is the timer. Post the question to GE.

I have an older ge prfile washer & the cycle knob does not work. how do you take it off. i have pulled it & tried to unscrew it but neither works

pull knob out and look behind it. You should see a white plastic clip. You have to pull this out and then knob comes off. When replacing knob, put clip on knob first and then just push knob on to shaft.

Ge profile washer WPSR3100W1WW won't agitate

I see this pretty regular. You have a bad transmission. This is very common with the older GE's. To replace the transmission will run around $340 / $400. Not sure about your area. Just be glad you got this much use out of it, you are one of the very few that have. From 1998 till 2007 I owned my on repair company where I did GE's warranty work in my area for them. During that time period. When I found a GE washer under warranty doing what you are describing. GE would warranty the whole machine. They would have me destroy the machine after I would deliver the customer a band new one. GE knows they had a bad transmission and it cost them a lot of money. It was cheaper for them to replace the washer than have me repair it. The transmission list price was $298.00 back then. A word of advice, when you replace it. Buy a Whirlpool, Kenmore, Maytag. These brands hold up the best. I have the least service calls for Whirlpool and Kenmore. Both are made by the same people. Kenmore is made for Sears. Good Luck.
Please rate this solution if helpful. Thanks

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.
