Model number WTW5500xw0
I got one of these new VMWs giving me trouble. What it does is in a wash cycle it will run the sensing cycle for about 15 seconds then the lock light will start blinking and it stops. I put in into spin and drain and it will start spinning for about 15 seconds then the lock light will start to blink and it stops.
It seemed logical to me that the lid lock was bad but after replacing it the problem still occurs.
I found that if you put it into normal cycle & the lid locks then unlocks & does nothing else, lid lock is OK, suspect the actuator or drive train, actuator usually. If lid lock does not click lock, but light blinks, either ohm the switch out to specs or plug a new one into the board & see if it works with latch in place. machines are easier than them GE's to figure out.
The time to run diagnostics is longer than changing it. (actuator)
Got that right! Did the diagnostic & it tested good...ended changing out the actuator cause I coud not find any thing 'wrong'. That took care of it, now I look at my lights at first, put into diagnostic mode, when it does not agitate or spin, flip it over & look at underside. If looks Ok in goes the actuator. Has not failed me yet.
