I have a GE Washer model #WBB3300AOWW that works fine until it gets to the cycle at six minutes (medium cycle) and the beginning of the spin cycle. A technician first said it was the control panel because during that cycle time it would lose voltage but when he replaced the panel it still did not work correctly. What confuses me is it only starts making a loud click noise during the six minute cycle and the beginning of the spin cycle but still works, just at a slower speed.

The washer is 6 years old and I am wondering is it best to get a new washer or try and repair this problem, if it can be fixed at a low cost.

** GE Washer model # WBB3300A0WW... making a loud click noise **

If the sound in coming from the motor, I'm afraid that is most often caused by a problem in the motor itself. :(

GE has redesigned the motor used on that model washer. It is now more powerful and no longer uses a clutch which was also problematic on the original motor design.

** works fine until it gets to the cycle at six minutes (medium cycle) and the beginning of the spin cycle. **

I have no idea why it would only fail at that point unless a different motor speed is being used at that time.

** A technician first said it was the control panel but when he replaced the panel it still did not work correctly. **

Were they a GE *factory authorized* service depot? One of them should have known about the common motor failure point and to begin their inspection there.
