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.
My washer barely drains anymore and I'm thinking the motor assy part no. ap3872963 is what I need. Is this correct?
Answer Hello Mike. Check and make sure the filter and the hoses on the washer are not clogged. If not, you will need to order and replace the pump assembly WH23X10028 on the unit.
