☛GE Hydrowave washer
« on: July 16, 2014, 06:09:53 AM »

Hi to the forum
  I have a customer with a GE Hydrowave washer model #
WPRE6150H1WT after checking the machine out we found
the 4 led blinks on the motor control unit & proceeded to check out the mode shifter as the tech sheet indicated. I got a 0 ohm reading indicating a burned out coil.
Ok but there is no motor movement at all
not even a hum or growl. The lid switch seems ok at lease I
can here a relay clicking on the control board. Also there was an
accumulation of "rubber dust" from the drive belt on the floor
of the machine.
According to the tech sheet the fuse is OK or I would
not have the blinking green LED?
I also unplugged & reconnected all the connections on the
main cpu & motor (an old Maytag trick) looking for a intermittent conection...
Am I overlooking anything? My customer is willing to order the new shifter (WH38X10017) however I am suspicious that the motor & or control board may also be bad?
I am new to the
Hydrowave series machines...
I found this link on these machines;
I do not have access to a GE diagnostic trouble shooter.
Thank you for any input
PEACE ☮☯☺✌

Did you clear the error and then check the motor?

Here's probably more than you asked, especially my last post re. replacing the motor too...
