Replaced the control board and motor and my washer fills with water, ready to wash but does not spin. The time is running but will not spin. What can possibly be causing this?
Answer Hello Osiel,
You need to put the unit into the service mode and pull the fault codes. This is explained on page 3 of the tech sheet for the unit. The tech sheet will be inside the unit, normally inside the kick panel. Please include an e-mail address next time if you need us to send out a copy of the tech sheet.
This GE front loader will fill, agitate weakly for about 30-45 seconds, pump out, and then return to the "start" mode w/ the blinking start button. Cycle time advance 1-2 minutes.
Using a troubleshooting guide, I got an error code E46 for motor. Going through the steps, I believe I have diagnosed a bad motor sensor, as the resistance between the two yellow leads at wiring harness p9 on the control panel is wide open, i.e no resistance. I verified that the control panel is sending power to the motor by checking for 120V at the inverter plug during service code test t11, and the motor sometimes runs during this service code test, others not.
Does the diagnosis of a bad motor sensor seem reasonable given the above description?
Yes, based on the information it does indeed sound like a bad control on the motor assembly and the motor would need to be replaced.
