SOURCE: Spin and Agitate problem on GE Profile Prodigy WPSE4200A

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 you don't hear a click when you close the lid, replace the lid switch.

SOURCE: GE Profile Prodigy Machine not agitating

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.

SOURCE: GE Prodigy Washing machine making clunking noise

One common problem area is the clutch assembly. The clutch is built on top of the motor, the motor drives the clutch and the clutch assembly drives the rest of the washer. The clutch gets very noisy when parts inside are worn out. The shoes lining that drives the inner drum of the clutch wear off and you will get a metal on metal sound. Clutches often can be rebuilt, but sometimes they are too worn and replacing the whole clutch is the best repair. Please use this link here for clutch replace and repair info. The belt and pump may be the next items to check for noises. How to access the washer. Clutch repair help.

Is there a humming sound? Check you have the hot and cold water supply turned on. Check the water inlet hoses are not kinked.

The gears maybe going out. Sometimes it is able to engage in the other direction which the spin, sometimes not. Washing machine have complex gears that in one way agitator works, and the other the gear locks to turn the whole tub. The clicking noise is probably the locking mechanism in the gears that has caused the whole intermittent problem.

My wnse4200 makes a clunking sound when in the spin cycle and I can stop the drum by hand


you may gave a broken pump. or a bad centrifugal switch. turn the washer on its side(unplug it first of cours) underneath the washer you will see a pump attached to the motor. remove the pump by realeasing the two long clips in there and see if a foriegn object is lodge in there. a problem with the centrifugal switch will require replacing the whole motor.This could also be a problem with the drive gears.

Will not drain during spin???


Most likely your outlet filter of the machine is choked with dirt or something; clean out the filter & refit. Of course after taking of the wall plug & siphoning out the water from washer.
