My GE profile top loading washer started making a "squeak squeak" noise while agitating and is making loud humming "bearing-going-out" type of sound while spinning. Is there something that can oiled or greased or are sounds like this typical of a more expensive problem. Not sure how old this one is... previous owners left it so it is at least 5 years old, but maybe not too much more than that.

Just don't want to call a repair person, only to have them charge me $75 to tell me I need a new washer, cause to replace the part will be more than a new one.

** GE Profile Washer **

I'm afraid that is not enough information to identify the appliance in question. What is needed is its exact model number. If you post it we can look it up to see what appliance design you're dealing with.

You can find tips for locating the model and serial number identification tag on your appliances at the following link:

** Is there something that can oiled or greased **

Not usually, no but will depend on exactly what component(s) of the washer the sounds are coming from.

** or are sounds like this typical of a more expensive problem. **

The "loud humming while spinning" could be coming from the transmission bearing which would be expensive to repair if the transmission is no longer covered by warranty. It could be warranted for up to 5-years so check your owner's manual for warranty coverage.
