About half of my 401K was Pre-Tax investments and the other half was Roth 401k investments - so I invested it after I paid my taxes. I called WellsFargo who handles my 401K and they mentioned that they can make a check out to Etrade, however I would have to figure out my own tax situation, so I thought some people on here are bound to know.

The only thing I know for sure is that you need to move up the food chain at WellsFargo. AFAIK separate accounting of a Roth 401(k), including earnings, is required of the plan. The Roth 401(k) can be rolled only into another Roth plan or a Roth IRA. There's no way one check is possible for your entire 401(k).
