The agitator won't reciprocate it goes in one direction, the maintenance people changed the gearbox saying new g.b are designed to rotate in one direction, is that correct?

Hi DIY Friends, The motor on my GE FWT445GES1 washer won't agitate or spin. Followed the "Motor Movement" fault diagnosis on the Tech Sheet (found it inside the washer) and all the steps checked out OK including the Ohm check of the motor windings (rotor/stator full and stator tapped), speed tachometer, and thermal protect (all at or within tolerance) - so I order a new motor and still no spin or agitation. Confounding. With ohm meter, I probed motor plug pins on the motor's side of the plug (from front side & underneath front load tub) and found 110VDC on pins 5/6 (rotor) and 3/4 (stator full). Also observed polarity on rotor & stator pins, when direction of spin goes from CW to CCW and back again. Spade plug contacts to the rotor armature and commutator have continuity with motor plug pins 5/6. Brushes have continuity. Fault diagnosis includes testing of Timer contacts 9 to 9A and 24 to 24B for 120VAC, and that is OK. Timer moves through all cycles. Tub fills, drains, etc - just no movement. I thought there might be a loose wire so checked continuity on all wires between Timer, Speed Control & Motor and all are good. Checked door lock switch by opening door and pulling out Timer - nothing happens. Close the door and washer fills. Detergent fill door does same. Open it and nothing when Timer is engaged, or close it and the washer fills, cycles. The motor is energized but does not move. It spins freely by hand.Does any one have an idea of what to test next? Appreciating your aid and direction. Leon

Hello! This forum is truly appreciated! It is great that you folks are sharing your knowledge and making life easier for us, while at the same time teaching us things we do NOT understand! I have a Frigidaire Front Loader (Model FWT449GFS0) that suddenly quit tumbling & spinning (it pumps water in and out fine) upon turning it on one day. prior to this, it worked great and it has been a trouble-free workhorse--except for a pump replacement years ago. The timer seems to work. It completes cycles on its own. I hear the clicks it is sending to the various components. All seems normal EXCEPT that the motor does not turn to tumble and spin! I read with great interest your troubleshooting sequence you kindly provided "Dale F. Model Number fwt449gfsmo" and was about to perform those tests when I discovered that my washer has 4-pin and 9 pin plugs, as opposed to a 6 and 10 on Dale's unit. The 4 pin plug wires are: white, brown, blue/white, white. The 9 pin plug (two empty slots) plug wires are: violet, brown, red, pink/black, blue, yellow, yellow/white. Is there a troubleshooting sequence like you gave "Dale F." available for my particular model? I cannot locate the schematic diagram (I am the original owner and don't ever remember one, although I did replace the pump once and could of forgotten to replace it back inside the cabinet). Any assistance would kindly be appreciated. Many thanks! Ralph

Suddenly today, on rinse and spin cycles, a loud "gear grinding" sound comes from somewhere low on the washer and the tub will not turn. I think it is happening during a sequence of fill-tumble-drain cycles, maybe at the point where the direction of tumble changes. If I force the control knob forward just slightly the noise stops, the tub fills and the next rinse-tumble occurs. It's as though maybe the tub will rinse-tumble in one direction but not another. Maybe a stripped gear somewhere? That's what the alarmingly loud noise sounds like.

I just purchased the motor for this washer. When I bolted up the motor, I noticed there is not a hole to attach the ground wire. What should I do? I called to have the company replace the motor with another. On the motor, there is a little picture for the ground wire,just as on my old motor but, no hole. What should I hook the ground to? Thank you

Machine won't tumble or spin. Pump runs fine.1) How can I test the Door lock switch to make sure it's working? I have an Ohm/Voltage meter. 2) How can I test the motor with meter? I tried the wiring diagram and get no continuity for the 5&6 positions on the motor connector which says its for the Armature and should read less than 5 ohms.

I can't slide the new motor on the four studs below the washer tub where it is supposed ot fit. If one stud goes in the others are just a milimeter off. I am afraid to force it - the tub studs are plastic and fit into steel thimbles. Any tips on how this is done?

I have done all the check as per the wiring diagram every thing checks ok. I have replaced the door switch, the timer, the speed control board and the motor. I have not been able to get this washer to spin in any cycle. It fills and tumble in only one direction during wash, It pumps out, I have check the psi switch it says it good when tested manually. can the ptc. switch at the soap dish cause this problem. What voltage should I have at the switch, can I check this switch with a volt meter. It also tumble 2 time just before it pump out in the last of the spin cycle. Is there a service manual on line Thank you Dale

Washer makes a hi-pitch noise only when spinning dry at high speed. Sounds like the noise is comming from the motor. Otherwise, washer is operating normally.
