GE Washing Machine Died


LOL, yeah I was thinking the same thing this afternoon. But to be fair the only suggestion was to change the board , if they would have asked how to troubleshoot the motor I could have told them since it has its own self diagnostics on the inverter, and we did try to tell them that the fuse had nothing to do with it. I think you can buy this machine new for $499, and they probably have over $400 in repair parts trying to fix this themselves.

GE Washing Machine Died


Well just to let you all know I bought my parts brand new at low prices so I'm not worried about the money I spent I can always use the parts later if needed. My problem now is the control board, I found out my machine needs a code put in to operate it. Some how by turning the dials and holding the start button or something what ever it is. It needs to be programmed.

So I tested the electric cord with a voltage meter and found that one side did not work. Upon examination I found that one side had been chewed by a mouse. So I replaced it with a new cord. Plugged it in the lights on the control panel were flashing. I did some research and found I had to take a module off the old control board and put it on the new one this piece has a looped yellow wire on it. Plugged it in after that and all is working fine. I have the happy ending I was looking for.

Glad to see that you got it going. There is a sense of satisfaction when you fix it yourself.
