Question about GE Profile Prodigy WPSE4200A
Same thing is happening to mine. If you read the front of the maching you will not that it has an autobalance feature. I have removed the botton of the maching and can see this feature. It is a large counter weight attached to some sort of mechanism which I assume extends the weight to balance the load prior to the "real" spin. I am guessing that during the preliminary autobalance phase, the mechanism is attemting to extend the weight but has become frozen. I beleieve the loud noise occurs when the mechanism is attempting to extend the counter weight. Normally this would occur quickly and be done with but since the load is not ballancing, the machine attempts again and again then finally moves on to the "real" part of the spin phase. My maching spins a little for the real phase then attempts to balance the load again and the loud noise occurs. I realize this is not a solution. If I find one, I'll come back and post. Till then good luck.

Certainly you could find some screws to unscrew to view the tub. Is this a front loading one?Check the shock absorbers or springs & see they are in place. You hv to open it up or more damage will occur. Plug off the wall please.
