GE HYDRO WAVE MODEL SHAFT AND TUBE ASM FAILURE?
« on: April 29, 2012, 12:15:40 PM »
Hi

I have a GE  Hydro wave washing machine  model whre5550h1ww I have replaced the shaft and tube asm it was 90 ohms when I replaced it after turniing ON it now reads 0 ohms and the motor light blinks 4 times .I preformed a reset when I replaced it .
I have done some looking into and have been told that the motor can cause the shaft and tube asm to fail .Does any one know it anything elese can cause the shaft and tube asm to fail other than a bad motor .?
Thanks
DK

On earlier models if you opened the lid after starting the wash cycle the solenoid would remain on long enough to be destroyed. It is only supposed to remain ona a few seconds but instead it stays on for a few minutes and gets burned up.
