GE Washer wont agitate or spin
Have a GE Profile washer that is 3 years old model #wpre6100g0wt. The pump works but it will not agitate or spin. I have continuity across the fuse. Performed a lid switch test I found on line and it tested good. No flashing light on the motor in fact no light at all. Opened and closed the lid to reset but no good. Put in field service mode found no error codes but in this mode it would not agitate or spin. 8.95 VDC across pins 3 and 5 as well as 4 and 5 at the motor. Have 120 VAC across WR wire and RB wire at motor as well as across WR wire and OX wire at the motor (pins 3,5,6 on first plug at motor). Blew and sucked on water level switch to loosen carbon at contacts to no avail (tip from 50 year service tech. veteran). Please tell me I have overlooked something simple and inexpensive.Answer
Hi Mike,Replacement parts in General Electric WPRE6100G0WT Washer
You have done every step necessary to diagnose a bad motor.
I have read your post several times carefully (thanks for the very detailed info by the way) and I believe you have a bad motor. You have voltage to the motor the light should be blinking. That itself is a very good indication that the motor is bad because the only things that will stop the light is the fuse or the motor and you know the fuse is good because you have voltage from WR wire to RB as well as the continuity test you preformed. Then you took it a step further and tested voltage at the motor in the service model. I think you can safely say that the motor is bad. If I were in you situation that is what my diagnoses would be.
