My GE profile washingmachine won't start

My washing machine GE whsb80001ww control panel lights up but the machine won't start. I think it is a problem with the control/ circuit board could it be another propblem?

The button for "Dark Colors is lit, plus a fe others, and the start button is lit indicating it is ready to start, but when I press the start button the machine won't do anything. also, if i try to switch modes, or select other cycles, the machine remains stuck in the same "Dark Colors" cycle, along with everything else. can you help?

It's possible that the tub suspension system is out of position. Open the cabinet top (use a thin putty knife in each front corner to release a spring clip) and watch the mechanism while washing. Try shaking the assembly to see if you can spot something rubbing. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: WCVH6800JMS pauses mid-cycle: I

The error code E22 is the most recent fault recorded and you are correct. It pertains to a fill time exceeding 8 minutes and can be due to a faulty pressure switch not tripping to signal the control that the correct water level has been reached.

Test t06 is where the water level control, the pressure switch for that matter, is being tested. Pump runs and displays E at start if no water in the tub. Press Start/Pause to advance and water valve begins to fill. Displays F when reaches FOAM level. Displays nl when reaches MAIN level, and briefly displays oF when reaches overflow level, then pumps water out. Displays E when empty. If it keeps displaying E, the pressure switch is stuck in the empty position.

Remove the 3 Phillips-head screws that attach the top cover, then pull the cover rearward. Remove the 3 (7-mm) hex-head screws that attach the rear of the top panel to the cabinet. Slide the top panel about an inch rearward then lift the panel.


On the right side of the machine cabinet facing the front is the pressure switch.


Check the connection of the pressure tube with the pressure switch and the bottom of the tub and make sure there's no air leak or kinks which can prevent pressure built up to trip the pressure switch. Remove the pressure tube by squeezing the clamp then slide it back. Carefully break the hose loose by inserting a small flat-blade screwdriver under the hose to break the seal. Remove the pressure switch by pulling its bottom then rotate it 1/4-turn clockwise to clear the suspension

Blow air forcefully down the hose to clear it and do the same through the pressure switch inlet to possibly free a possible stuck contacts. Replace the pressure switch with part number WH12X10307 if the problem persists.

Please accept the solution should you find it helpful and/or informative. Accepting the solution will not stop you from posting comments or additional information. You can still communicate with the expert should you need further advice regarding the issue stated herein.

When you replaced the pressure switch, did you fully test the pressure switch hose?

Here's a similar posting that explains a potential issue and how to troubleshoot:

I highly recommend doing a diagnostic test because it's free and easy. Most of the time, the washer will self-diagnose. Check out that posting for instructions on how to do the tests.

I have a GE Profiler washer model WPRB8050DOWW. The panel lights are lite up with the start button flashing I can't get it off that setting. Is there a way to reset the panel, or do I need a new panel

Hello. From your symptoms, it sounds like the control panel has a stuck button and is not allowing changes to be made. The part number is WH42X10486.

GE Profile Harmony washer won't power up and trips gfi

Did you replace the inverter board?? It is inside the tan plastic box in the bottom of the control panel I think on the right side. That controls the power supply to a good part of the machine and drive system. Has to be a direct short somewhere to trip the breaker.

GE top load profile washer won't spin. It starts

The tub hangs on 4 support rods. Lateral movement is kept in check with 4 bungy cords bolted to the top of the tub. If that washer is not level the tub will hang to one side and the fancy controls will declare an error. Make sure all your rods are good (they drag the base of the machine when worn out and make a heck of a racket) and the bungys are not stretched and the machine is level.

My ge profile harmony washer will turn on but will not allow me to start a cycle

try taking apart the control panel and unplugging the main and control board. Wait for 15-20 minutes and replug. Repairman said mine had static in the system and unplugging cleared it.

GE profile washing machine won't agitate it spins out, drains,

Pull the agitator out and check the drive collar splines.If you have the model I think you have just pull straight up on the agitator. Once removed you will see the drive collar with a 7/16 head bolt,remove it and pull off the collar.First before pulling it off spin it if splines are stripped it will spin freely.
