Model #WPRE6100G0WT, this top load washer would light up, but the motor would not agitate or spin in any of the cycles. Using my meter and the tech sheet
for this model, I verified I had voltage to the inverter board (which is attached to the motor), then noticed a fuse indicated on the neutral line returning from the board. This particular fuse is not a typical glass or ceramic fuse, but an axial fuse that is crimp connected directly in line with the wiring harness and then covered in heat shrink and electrical tape. Once I removed all the protective coverings, I did a voltage check across the fuse (remember a good fuse will measure 0vac across it) and found my full 115vac source voltage. The fuse reads open resulting in an open circuit to the motor. To replace this fuse would require replacement of the wiring harness due to GE not providing a separate service part, but instead I install a fuse holder (such as this one
) and a 10amp slow blow fuse and get the washer up and running in no time.
