Question about GE Washing Machines
Wjsr4160 ge washer brake resistor open. Where is the resistor? I would rather change the resistor than spend $200 for a new motor. Where is the resistor? On the pc board? Which one?

IN YOUR CASE YES BECAUSE TECHNOLOGY MAKES IT THIS WAY ANYMORE. YOUR MOTOR MAY BE A MOTOR TO YOU AND MOST PEOPLE BUT IT IS ACTUALLY AN ELECTRONIC COMPONENT AND IS ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLED. SORRY TO BE THE BEARER OF BAD NEWS. GOOD LUCK

SOURCE: GE washer. New belt,
The error code E4 (4 flashes of teh light) means the the shifter coil is open..the shifter coil is part of the mode shaft..to repair that the mode shaft would need to be replaced...the mode shaft is in the center of the tub its what the agitator and the inner tub connect to and would require disassambly of just about the entire washer to replace it.
As far a s testing the lid switch with a ohm meter its just a matter of determining via the wiring diagram in the control panel and find the 2 wires on it and where the connect to (sorry dont remember off hand what two wires they are) to test it when the lid is closed on those 2 wires should have continuty with ZERO omhs resistiance and when the lid is open the that circuit should be opened
