GE Hydrowave washer, no spin
« on: May 09, 2013, 05:58:59 PM »
Subject washer model WJRE5550H1WW will pump out water, but not spin. Lid switch is ok, but led on the motor pc board
will not light up. Hope someone has seen this before, I never have.

This washer might have a blown fuse. The lady said it would agitate, but most probably she didn't test after the no spin problem.

  To check the fuse, check continuity between washer power plug neutral (wide blade) and white/red wire on inverter board leftmost connector.

Thanks, I have an article on this that has all the tests for this washer. I just hope that's the problem.

I found an open fuse and a open lid reed switch. Put jumper across fuse, plugged in washer in spin. The motor drew 13 amps, started up slowly, then the inverter put out a lot of smoke.
 Good thing I tested it.
 Lady terminated it, too costly to fix.
