Question and Answers

Q:

nothing but the lock works WSXH208H1WW Ge Washer

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com and being a valued member.  I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your washer will not work properly.

 Check for power:

1. Advance the timer knob to the drain
increment. If the drain pump does not run,
check household safety circuit. If the drain
pump runs go to step 2.

Check for motor movement:
2. Turn the water off to the washer. Remove
electrical power from the washer and
remove the back panel. Remove the motor
drive belt. Reconnect electrical power and
set the timer to the start of the Regular wash
cycle and pull the knob out. If motor does
not rotate, check for a poor connection in the
timer line switch or door lock switch. If good,
and motor does not run go to step 3.

Measure Voltages:
3. Remove the six pin plug from the speed
control unit. Measure the voltage between
pins 5 and 6 on the harness. If the meter
reads 0 check the connection in the timer
line switch or door lock. If the meter
reads 120 Vac go to step 4.

4. Set the timer to the Heavy Wash position of
the Regular wash cycle. Remove the ten pin
plug from the speed control unit. Measure
the voltage between pins 1, 2, 6 and 10 of
the ten pin plug to pin 5 of the 6 pin plug on
the harness. The voltage at pins 2, 6, and
10 should read 120 Vac and 0 Vac at pin 1.
If not, check timer contacts 1C to 1B, 5C to
5B, and 7C to 7B for closed contacts, and
3C to 3B for open contacts. If the voltage
readings are correct, go to step 5.

5. Measure Resistances:
Check the fuse on the speed control board.
If the fuse is open, replace the speed control
board. If good, go to step 6.

6. Remove the 6 pin plug from the speed
control unit. Measure the resistance
between pins 1 and 2, 2 and 3, and 3 and 1
of the speed control unit. If the meter reads
other than 3 Meg ohms ± 10%, replace the
speed control board.
7. Remove electrical power from the washer.
With an ohmmeter check the resistance
between pins 1 and 2, 2 and 3, and 3 and 1
of the six pin plug on the harness. If the
meter reads other than 2.6 ohms ± 7%,
replace the motor.

The timer motor will not run continuously.
The speed control unit controls the timer
motor and advances the timer when needed.
• In some tumble modes, the tub may not
tumble for the first 16 to 20 seconds after
start-up.
• Extremely low water pressure may cause
tub rotation to stop until WLC satisfied.

If this does not work, then you will need a technician.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The components in the fill circuit are the water level pressure switch, timer contacts and temperature switch. I added an image below of the wiring diagram and I traced the fill circuits in red for line voltage and green for neutral. 

When you applied voltage to the water inlet valves, you did not clarify if water entered or not. You said you heard them turn on but you did not say if any water entered or not. If water did not enter when voltage was applied, I suspect a faulty water inlet valve or there is no water supply to the hot and cold valves. If water did enter, then it could have a faulty control. If water is already in the tub because it fails to drain, it will not add any more water.

The images below should help you diagnose the failure.

 I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post

I had not previously tried power to the solenoids with water turned on. I just tried though and water did pour into the tank, so this tells us that the inlet valve is working properly but that there is something that is not telling it to open, right?? So you mentioned a "faulty control" what kind of control, does it have a special name how would i go about finding this part in my machine and is there a way to test it. And what is the name of the part so i could order it? Sorry for all the questions, but I feel a little closer than i was yesterday!

Todd: I never mentioned anything about a faulty control. The components in the fill circuit are the water level pressure switch, timer contacts and temperature switch. I added an image in my response of the wiring diagram and I traced the fill circuits in red for line voltage and green for neutral. A voltage meter will be needed to test the voltage at the different components using the wiring diagram I provided. You would leave one of the voltage meter leads on the "White" neutral wire at all times and then step through the fill circuit with the other meter lead to find where the voltage is not present. Start at the water inlet valve and walk the meter lead back through the circuit. NOTE: If you do not have experience and do not feel safe and confident in doing so; I suggest calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your washer.
