Question about GE Profile Prodigy WPSE4200A
Hi, Yesterday I purchased a GE washer/dryer from a craigslist for $300. I made a big mistake by not checking whether washer was working correctly or not because the seller did dmo the dryer and asked me whether I wanted to check washer or not. I trusted her and hauled the washer/dryer to my home. spend another $50 on u-haul when I started the washer, after the water was filled to its level, there was unbearable metal screeching sound during the wash process. it looks like the rotor is getting rubbed with some metal surface. If I move the knob at rinse/spin position it drains all the water and spins perfectly. that cycle works fine. the major problem is during the wash cycle where it makes horrendus sounds. I dont know whether the seller cheated me or it was damaged during the move. lesson learned.."Dont trust anybody".. Any help or advice will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Ppr78, couple of things you want to check. The bottom panel on these GE's are pretty flimsy. I have run into a couple where during agitation the bottom of the motor housing would rub against the bottom panel making a terrible noise. You need to remove the front panel by pusing on the clips on the left and right side just under the top. The front panel will pull out. During agitation, take your foot and push down on the bottom panel and see if the screech goes away. I have also found the suspension rod support sockets at the top dry out and make a screeching noise. You also want to check your belt and pully and see if the noise is from there. Check these things first...Catriver..post back.

Thanks catriver! That fixed it! I used some WD40 on the suspension joints.
