GE PTAN9250MWS top load washer always spins
« on: July 31, 2012, 07:55:22 AM »
Hi;
I'm working on a GE PTAN9250MWS top load washer that starts to spin as soon as you start a cycle. Even if you pause the cycle it will keep spinning. This will also happen if I start it in service mode. In service mode I can activate the water valves ect. but the tub is always spinning. I suspect the control board but I'm not familar with this model. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Hi;
Thanks for the replies. The model number is correct. To get the machine to stop spinning I have to unplug it and wait for the tub to stop then turn the cycle knob to off and then I can plug it back in. As soon as I select a cycle it starts spinning and won't stop until I unplug it. Also the start and pause button does not stop the spin.

I think the ohm vaue is 96 on the mode shifter. Two lead plugs into inverter board on motor. Good luck.

the newer mode shifters only ohm about 68, you have a control on the top of the motor that flashes codes. I have had bad shifters agitate but not spin ??

Hi;
Checked mode shifter and it was ok. Problem was the circuit board.
