I understand that your GE washer is blinking a green LED on the motor. I have taken some time to research your question here on the Manage My Life website and I noticed that someone else had asked a similar question with a posted response from an expert. I attached the link below if you are interested in viewing. I hope the link that I provided is helpful.

The information about the codes on that inverter board is shown in the image below. This may help you determine the cause of your motor failure. If you correct the cause of the error code, the board will need to be reset as shown at the bottom of that image.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will try to assist you further.

This washer can be complicated to diagnose and repair. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Tom Newbie Unfollow PrintFacebookTwitterEmail38 minutes ago TOM MYERS GE CLOTHES WASHER WHRE5550KWW Lyle I tried the information you sent as to the signaling Led on the lower motor controller inverter board. This one is allways blinking at a one second on off rate. IAW the info you sent that says it is in stand by waiting to do some thing. I am jumper simulating water on board at the pressure switch and have it in the drain and spin mode. Lid closed. Pump comes on but the spin motor does not run. Still indicates Standby, with, one second on off flashing on the lower motor controller. Any more Ideas? I have checked all I know to check at the motor windings. The three phase windings show 10.5 ohms on all 3 pins. The other winding pair of pins indicates 0.5 ohms. Link fuse is good.. I tried the error resetting suggested method, no help. Tom Myers

Disconnect the yellow and red wires at the motor ( to the left of the blue connector in the image Lyle sent) they should read around 68 or 96 ohms (depending on the type of windings...aluminum or copper) an open mode shifter (shaft and tube assembly) will cause a no spin/ agitate. This should not read open.

A:

The inverter board is getting power according to the blinking light. I provided a diagnostic test procedure for the main control board in the console in the first image below. I recommend that you use that test to check the washer. You could have a problem with that control board in the console or the inverter on the motor. You could also have a wiring failure. I provided the wiring diagram in the second image. UNPLUG the washer and check the wiring connections between the control board and the motor. Check that lid switch and make sure that the switch is "closing" (reading continuity) when the washer lid is closed (you can UNPLUG the washer and jump it if necessary). These tips may help you determine the cause of this problem. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

I have a WHRE5550K2WW. I tried to place it in service mode by following the factory procedure, how ever the washer continues to blink at 1 second intervals.

Hello Jennifer. If you go into that service mode and all of the LED's are blinking at 1 second intervals, then you can move the knob 1 click at a time to move through the various functions of that service test to check the components. If the control will enter that service test but won't go through the other stages, you could have a problem with the control. Reply with additional details if you need more help.
