This is a bad control board in the top. And yes, this is made by the same folks who do the WP units. Marvel, I think.

Since this is similar to the WP design other than the logo, you should be able to use the WP freestanding IM manual to help you confirm the problem

I agree , the problem still is ongoing after 4 boards and a complete wireharness change.The last two boards had the numbers ver. and GE says it is the right board. I still go back to the board .But it was just replaced with harness and same problem?Everything checks on this unit ,any ideas why GE says replace watervalve ???

Check for power at the water valve throughout the cycle to see if power is continuously applied.
