Received a GE GTWN4950LWS on trade tonight. Was told by the owner that it fills and drains but doesn't spin. Took the front off and I see that the red LED is flashing 7 times. The manual says it comes on when 2 wash cycles have completed without the lid switch being opened and will disable itself from spinning until the error is reset. I attempted to get the machine into field service mode (position 9/spin) but it still wont spin.
I guess at this point would spin being disabled by the lid switch also disable the washer from spinning in field service mode? Or does field service mode allow all functions to work, regardless of it they have been disabled by the unit?
I attempted to clear the LED error code with no success. This to me suggests that (maybe) the lid sensor went bad, they did two loads of wash and now the washer disabled itself from spinning. Can't clear the error code (by opening/closing the lid as the switch is bad). Replace the switch and hope I can reset the error code? Again, will having the lid switch disable spinning also disable spinning from being tested while in Field Service mode?
Any feedback, suggestions would be great!
