Question about GE Profile WPRE6100G Top Load Washer

1 Answer

My profile washer, Model # WPRE6100G0WT, is giving me issues on completely getting the water out of the clothes. Everything fills up and drains as it should (I assume), but when the load is done, it's like it didn't spin fast enough to get all of the water out of the clothes. So basically you have to squeeze the water out of the clothes by hand before putting them in the dryer. Do you have any ideas on what this could be? Thanks Kori Barnes.

Hi, summarily your clothes are always wet at the end of the wash cycle.

When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine. If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.

Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.

Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Washer fills with water when not in use. Doesn't completely drain and spin cloths, and I get an E10 error code


Hello Lahoma, thank you for your post!
I understand that your Frigidaire washer fills with water, will not drain completely, and is flashing an "E10" error code. The error code stands for your washer fill time is too long. This could be an issue with your water valve, main control, or water pressure. You should check to make sure that your water flow is normal and that your water line is not restricted. This could cause an issue with the way water is distributed within your washer. The water pressure coming into your washer should be at 30 PSI. You can also clear out any false error codes by performing a reset on your washer. In order to reset your washer you need to disconnect power from it for roughly ten minutes. If this does not help resolve your issue I would recommend consulting with a professional technician for a proper diagnosis to be completed. I hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

What has happened is that your water pump has gone out and it cannot pump the water out of the washers tub. This is a common issue and replacing the pump is not that hard assuming you have the time, effort, tools and energy.

Need to get water out of washer SPIN CYCLE DOESN'T START PLEASE HELP


If this is a Whirlpool, Estate, Roper, or Kenmore model Top Loader, the problem is a lid switch malfunction. This is the most common symptom when the lid switch fails. The washer will either fill normally, then stop. Or, it will fill, agitate, then when it gets to the spin cycle, it will stop. If these match the symptoms you are experiencing, please post back and let me know. I can assist you and explain how to repair this problem. This is an inexpensive repair that anyone can accomplish with a little guidance. I have step-by-step instructions posted under the "Tips and Tricks" section of my profile.

Please provide as much information as possible when posting questions, as all washers are not alike and symptoms differ between models. This makes it much easier for us to provide you with the proper diagnosis. Let me know if you need my assistance.

PS You do not need to drain the wash tub to repalce a defective lid switch. The washer will drain on its own if the switch is replaced. In the interim, I can also give you advice on how to by-pass the lid switch as a temporary means of draining the washer.

It sounds like your drain hose is kinked or blocked, or maybe the pipe that the drain hose drains into is blocked. Somehow water is now being allowed to get out of the machine at the end of the cycle and is staying in the machine. Check those hoses and pipes.
