    I have a GE Prodigy and I've had it maybe 7 years now. But when it gets to the spin cycle, it makes a loud roaring noise that's very irritating. Also, sometimes when it's time to spin, it won't. It'll hum but won't spin. It's like it's stuck or something. Sometimes i'll lift up the lid a few times and it'll start to spin. But this last time I had to unplug it for a while to get it to spin. Could this be the pump or a belt ? Please help!! Thanks!

Accurate call? WTH? The problem isn't with the agitator. The problem described is with the drain pump!

Service before you have real problems!
Sounds like the coupling connector from the trans. to the agitator is worn and ready to fail.

Bless you
Please give me a good rating for my accurate call!

Hi wont start. just making a loud whiring noise.

According to your description of the fault, something was blocking drain turbine of main motor. Dishwashers always first start drain water because calibration of water level inside dishwasher (empty). In your case, the main motor is same motor for washing and draining. Runing in one direction means washing, runing to oposite side means draining.
The solution is to open a turbine pump and remove all obstacles and visual check turbine impeller,ceramic seal and plastic sleeve on the motor shaft.

The washing machine makes loud banging noises when its running.

Either the machine is not balancing correctly or something mechanical has broken. If it works fine when empty then it is a balancing issue. If it does this even when empty then something has broken that supports the tub.

Funny noise when machine is emptying

Does the "whirring noise" sound like a jet engine?  If so your bearings are going.  Check your warranty.  It's a big job to replace them.
