GE Profile Prodigy won't agitate
« on: July 04, 2010, 11:36:15 AM »
My unit is about 10-yrs old, but being an engineer and cheap I would rather fix it than ditch it...the unit spins, fills and drains fine I noticed today when it was suppose to be running in the wash cycle it just made a humming noise and wasn't moving.  I moved the unit to spin and it worked as it looks like I can order a new tranny assembly for about $175 which would be cheaper than buying a new unit...any help would be appreciated!!!

Model WPSE4200A0WW

After evaluating the unit while running without the agitator tower, I think it is the adapter coupling, it looks stripped inside where the gear seats, the transmission seems to operate properly the coupling isn't moving while the shaft rotates back and a new coupling coming so we will see
