Question about General Electric WBSR3140GWW Top Load Washer

1 Answer

The motor of my GE washer (WBSR3140GWW) is not doing anything. It's flashing a green light continuously. I've tried the reset method recommended on GE's website but it doesn't seem to be doing anything. I've even tried to unplug the wires, wait, and repug; but it didn't do anything either. Any recomendations other than buying a new motor?

The washer uses a green light, which is the "Start" button, to indicate problems, and the flash pattern is a code to the type of problem. Two flashes means the washer's drain pump must be cleaned. Clumpy or poor-quality detergents can clog the drain pump. The user can attempt to fix the pump, but, If the problem continues, he must contact the GE customericon1.png service line for professional service.

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 washer (#WBSR3140GWW) does not spin on the spin cycle and the clothes come out very wet. What could be wrong??


Hello,

The most probable trouble is the belt is streched and needs replacing. To replace belt remove front panel by placing a putty knife about two inches inward from the ends of front panel push the putty knife in and release clips for front panel.remove panel and belt will on bottom under the motor. On a lot of GE washers the oil in transmission leaks and soaks belt in oil so soon new belt will be oil soaked and needing replacment again if ya see a lot of oil in base belt will fix temporarly till its oil soaked,the fix then is to replace washer since trans. replacement is more than new washer

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

That fuse is: $7.50

suspect what ge call a mode shifter pull front panel off by sliding putty knife along edge at each side and pressing clips front comes right off look on motor for a flashing green light (washer must be in operation) there are 2 wires in a single plug on motor these run back to transmission area with a volt/ohm meyer unplug and ck between the wires for continuity should be roughly 90 ohms if bad will not show any continuity
