On my GE Profile no matter what kind of wash cycle it is on: heavy,medium or light wash the adjitator jams. I will be washing perfectly then all the sudded it starts jaming. The lights dim as it is trying to run off and on. It will do this for a while then stop. Each time it tries the lights dim then it will click and try again then the lights dim again.

probably unbalance load inside, try to stop, move what's inside and restart, or maybe there is not enough inside and cannot balance ( one heavy item, add some item so it can balance them when spinning )
Some SHX46 washers have 4 wash cycle buttons and others have 5. The button on the left side on top of the door is the start/stop button regardless of how many wash cycle buttons you have.
If you have 5 cycle buttons, reading from left to right they will be as follows.
1. Top Rack Only / Sanitize 2. Power Scrub Plus - (Long wash for heavy soil) 3. Regular Wash - (Economy wash for light to medium soil) 4. Delicate Wash - (Shorter wash at a lower temperature for delicate items) 5. Rinse & Hold.
These buttons are also used for cancelling a wash cycle. Hold down buttons 2 and 4 (Power Scrub Plus and Delicate) at the same time to cancel a wash cycle and drain the water out.
If your washer does have 4 buttons, it means you don't have a Top Rack / Sanitize cycle, in which case the button configuration - from left to right - will be:
1. Power Scrub Plus - (Long wash for heavy soil) 2. Regular Wash - (Economy wash for light to medium soil) 3. Delicate Wash - (Shorter wash at a lower temperature for delicate items) 4. Rinse & Hold.
With this button configuration, the cancel cycle buttons are 1 and 3.
I hope this solves your problem. If you need any additional information, please post back.
The "Metallic banging/clicking" sound you hear is the Shifter mechanism engaging or disengaging.
The drive system will engage at the start of the Agitate Cycle and disengage when the Agitate Cycle is complete. This occurs multiple times during the wash. GE claims this is a normal sound and should not be concerned about it.

Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.
faulty cycle switch. Try moving the switch manually when it reaches spin mode. Watch the switch when it reaches this phase of the wash/spin cycle to see what is does. If it jams or resets itself it needs to be replaced
It is under warrenty call the store where you bought it and have them look at it. If you mess with it it will void your warrenty, belt may not be working or transmisson may not be shifting. The house call will be at no charge.
Many GE®/Hotpoint® washers use a clutch and an automatic shift lever. This assembly is quite complicated. If there's a problem with it, you probably should contact a qualified appliance repair technician.
Many washing machines have multiple-speed drive motors. Though it's uncommon, the drive motor may work fine on one speed but not on another. If the drive motor has failed on one speed, you need to replace the entire motor.
