Question and Answers

Q:

My GE washing machine, model wwsr3090t8ww only agitates when set to normal and only spins when set to fast.

A:

Based on your symptom and details it could have a faulty speed selector switch, loose wiring connection or an open slow speed motor winding.

In order to diagnose if the speed selector switch has failed will require disconnecting the wires from the speed switch and testing for continuity across terminals 1-3 and terminals 4-5 while the switch is set for slow/slow and then set the speed switch to fast/slow and check for continuity across terminals 1-3 and 2-5. If any checks of the switch show an open circuit between the terminals the speed switch has failed and will need to be removed and replaced. If you do not have an ohm meter to make these checks then replacing the speed switch would be the first part I recommend replacing. You should check all the wiring connections first at the timer, speed switch and motor first before replacing the speed switch. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord before servicing your washer. I added a couple of images below. The first one has the wiring diagram and the second has directions on how to raise the top and remove the front panel. The speed switch is part #WH12X1025 and is available at Sears Parts Direct .

I assume you had the wires disconnected from the switch when you check across the terminals of the switch. If so then the switch is likely ok and the failure is likely the timer since you have already replaced the motor. I recommend checking to make sure all the wire connections are making contact with the timer terminals. If all the wires connections are okay and the wires between the timer and motor are okay and not broken then replacing the timer will most likely resolve your issue. The bottom image of the volt/ohm meter is set for ohm/continuity. You would set the meter here and use the probes to test across the terminals but just because it may show it closed does not mean the contact can open whenever electrical current is applied through the contacts. I think if you replace the timer your washer will operate again on slow speeds.
