GE washer beeps will not start
« on: March 31, 2014, 08:12:42 PM »
Hello all, I'm at my wits end I turn to the internet for help.

I have a GE Washer gtwn4950l0ws and when I push start it beeps, a light flashes, and does nothing else.

I have used the field service mode on the washer and the washer gives me no error codes.

Initially the motor was flashing a communication error, so I replaced the control board on the washer ($160).  This changed nothing.  I cleared the communication error by unplugging and replugging (washer was unplugged) all wires to the motor. It now flashes on standby.

I have checked the lid switch by removing it and using a voltmeter. I have returned it the machine.

The pressure switch works fine is well.  It has a closed curcuit with no water in the machine.

I feel I have tried almost everything. Any guidance on my next action? Note: I really am trying to avoid buying a new washer.

Thanks for any help.

Please someone tell me what I can do to fix this washer.

I have the same situation on a GTWN5050M0WS GE washer.  What did you end up doing?
