GE Washer quits spinning after 3 seconds
« on: May 21, 2010, 10:37:11 AM »
Hi
This GE Washer will spin fine for 3 seconds then just quit. Also there was a power surge in the house just before this happened, now im thinking it needs a new control assm?
The control assm. is pricey what else should I check first?
Thanks Guys

Model WNSE6280B1WW

check the lid switch, It can fail 3 different ways, strike not hitting the lever, rusted/failed switch assembly, open micro switch   AJ's training manual

I have seen 4 of these in the past two years that were in power surges, all of them had fried circuit boards.
