GE Washer wwse5240G2ww Just over a year old. Wife overloaded it. After trying to reset the motor (open and close lid) and failing, I removed the front cover and saw the old belt broken and laying on the floor. Bought belt WH01x10353 and took 6 hours putting the thing on (and turning my hands into hamburger). Now I find the motor not running. When the cycle starts, and water fills up there is complete silence. I know the motor shaft turns freely. There is NO noise, NO smoke. Is there a fuse? How do I know if there is a switch problem? (By the way...just a home owner...dont have tools to test current). What is the exact reset pattern (i could have sworn it worked before when the wife made the water too soapy.) Any suggestions?
I recently called the supply/repair store where I bought the belt, and the owner said it sounds like a wire came loose, and no power is going to the motor. I took the front off again, and followed the wires (to the best of my ability) and nothing seems out of place. I did not follow the one wire from the switch into the control panel at the top of the washer yet. I have very limited knowledge of appliance repair, but do not have the $$ to call a repair man for what the supply owner describes as a quick fix. I am in need of some advice (pictures or schematics along with the advice would be appreciated.)
