7 blinks is a lock out code for water supply error. Here is what you can check. Please rate if I helped you.
No frequency change for 60 minutes from water supply. Press POWER button. No other buttons work:
· Check wiring harness
· Check water valve· Check pressure sensor switch
· Check circuit board

My ge washer model wjsr4160g1ww will not spin or aggitate


Hello,

A lot of times when that type GE Hydrowave washer does not spin/agitate it can simply be resolved by resetting the motor control board. This tip i wrote explains how to reset the motor inverter board and see if that resolves the problem with the washer. http://www1.fixya.com/support/r10292912-will_ge_hotpiont_top_load_washer_not

If ya try restting it and it does not work watch at the little green light on that motor board and see how many times in a row it blinks and reply with that number of times it flashes and i will tell ya what error code is being displayed

Will not spin or agitate


Remove the front panel. Observe the motor flashes.
The motor blinks on and off all the time.
It blinks faster when running.
If a failure occurs you will get the following flashes:

1 flash bad motor
2 flashes slipping belt
3 flashes corrupted software bad motor
4 flashes failed mode shift circuit
5 flashes bad motor
6 flashes locked motor check for objects between tub
7 flashes bad lid switch.
8 flashes motor overheated too much soap
9 flashes brake resister is toast bad motor.

To Reset the Inverter Board: Push the timer knob in so the washer is idle. Unplug the machine for one minute. Plug back in and raise and lower the lid six times within 12 seconds.

After resetting the inverter board, put the machine in a spin cycle and see if it runs. If not, check for a green blinking light on the inverter board. It will flash failure codes. If no light is visible you have a blown fuse built into the neutral side of the harness on the white/red wire.

themobilian_2813.jpgthemobilian_31.pngIf you see a small bubble in this black heat seal and the motor light is not on then the fuse within is blown replacement part is WH49X10041
What else do I have? Oh yeah how about the SERVICE MANUAL

The motor has a power inverter on top of it. Try and reset the motor by doing this:

Turn the washer off. Unplug the machine for one minute. Plug back in and raise and lower the lid six times within 12 seconds. It may take a few times. The motor has a green light on it that blinks. If it ain't acting right it will display flashes:

1 flash bad motor
2 flashes slipping belt
3 flashes corrupted software bad motor
4 flashes failed mode shift circuit
5 flashes little green men bad motor
6 flashes locked motor check for objects between tub
7 flashes bad lidswitch.
8 flashes motor overheated too much soap
9 flashes brake resister is toast bad motor.

After resetting the inverter board, put the machine in a spin cycle and see if it runs. If not, check for a green blinking light on the inverter board. It will flash failure codes according to the picture above. If no light you probably have a blown fuse built into the neutral side of the harness on the white/red wire.themobilian_4.png If you see a liitle bubble in there then you know that dude is toast.
That fuse is: $7.50

GE top loading washing machine drains and fills but does not agitate or spin. Wiring around lid switch resolved problem for one load only. Flashing green light on motor circuit board seven flashed each...


7 blinks DOES indicate a problem with the lid switch.
Replace the switch, and inspect the wiring for cracks/wear.

Can you hear the motor spinning?
Is there black plastic chunks under the washer?
What is the model #?

Seven flashes means the washer did not sense a lid opening. Check the lid switch.
