GE Washer Lights Blink After Replacing The Control Board.

by Ryan
(TX)

I just replaced the control board on my washer now all that it will do is flash the lights on the control. Do you know what the problem may be?


The Model number is WBSE2090A0WW

Thank you,

Hi Ryan,

On that control there is a plug that has only a jumper wire. This is the model select plug and if this plug is left off the control will be “confused” so to speak. See that plug “tells” the control what model it is on. In other words that control will work on other models just so long as the correct model select plug is in.

Look on you old control to see if you left the plug in the old control and if so take it and place it on your new control. This should correct the problem.

Thank you,

You Were Right!

Shawn,

You hit that right on the head, that was the problem. I must have overlooked that plug because it didn?t connect to anything, put it on now the washer works find. This is a great website I will be telling my friends about it. Thank you so much!!


Thank you,
Ryan

Perfect!

I had the exact same problem and solution! After replacing the control ASM on our GE washer, the lights on the front were just blinking. I had forgot to move the jumper from the old control ASM to the new one. After I moved it, the washer was working again.

Thanks!

GE, GTWN4250M0WS

I bought a sratch and repaired GE, GTWN4250M0WS. Is is missing the model select connector. Is there a way to know which pins to jumper instead of having to buy the connector? Thanks, Albert

The model select plug is just a jumper wire so theoretically you could just jump the wires however GE doesn’t give us information on which wires to jump. I guess they figure this is something we (repair techs) never need to know and this is right other than in a rare occasional such as this.

Thank You!

I, too, replaced the control panel, and when I hooked it up, all I got were flashing lights. I thought I had gotten a bad panel, but when I searched the problem, I came to this site and saw I had overlooked the jumper plug. Thank you for making my life much easier!

Continuous flashing red light
by: Dee

My ge washer will not agitate or spin. I took the front off and found the red flashing light. I found a list of error codes. 1-10. This red light flashes continuously with no pattern or pause. It just continuously flashes. Any ideas?

Nice work Shawn.I had the blinking lights after replacing the control board and was about to start testing the solenoid when I read your solution. I missed seeing the jumper on tha old board, transferred it to the new board and it worked perfectly.Have your site in my shortcuts for the next one. Thanks, Hal

It worked!

Thank you. I didn't realize I had to take the part off of the old board.

GE Washer not filling after replacing backsplash control board
by: Tim

I too had the problem of all the lights blinking so I removed the model identification chip from the old board to the new. Flashing lights problem solved, but my washer still won't fill. The fill light still blinks 20 times and beeps twice with no fill. Before replacing the board I diagnosed the problem by looking at the motor inverter light code. It was flashing 10 times suggesting a communication error. I saw a video online that said to reset the inverter light code by opening and closing the door so many times over 12 seconds and that might fix the problem. It did not. I have a new board installed with the same problem as before and now the inverter light just flashes continuously. Any suggestions. Hope this makes sense.

That error code can mean there is a loose connection. The last time I got this code a wire had come loose at the motor plug (the one to the far right). It could also be a bad plug at the control or the motor.

Model GE: WHSE5240D1WW
by: Rick

Worked. Thank Goodness I kept the old one. As soon as I looked at it .. I saw the white plug with a single wire looped.

After plugging it in the new board, plugged in the washer ... NO Blinking lights and worked like new.

Thanks A Million!
Rick
