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

Our washing machine stopped powering up. We've replaced the filter and the control boards. It still won't light up. The last part replaced was the filter which contains a fuse. When we plugged the machine in and pressed the power button, it tripped our gfi and the breaker for that outlet. What could cause this? The dryer runs fine on this outlet. When we tried the washer on this outlet, it was the only thing plugged in.

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.

Why does he GE profile top load washer trip my GFI circut half way thru it's scan cycle


Earth leak either due to water in something or a ground fault in the motor is my guess. It may even be a motor windings fault that is building up resistance as it warms up. You need a service engineer with a good test meter,

My ge profile harmony washing machine has a message that says "a problem has been detected with this unit."


Washers - Harmony Washer Error Message or Code
The Harmony washer electronics can automatically determine if problems exist with the machine. Sometimes an error code can also be present because of things the machine cannot control: like changes in house voltage, water pressure, or temperature.

"A problem has been detected with this unit" will be displayed on the screen.

The most common solution for this message is to turn the machine OFF and then ON. However, this message will sometimes cause the control to stop the machine from working. With this type of error, the control panel will need to be reset. The following steps will allow you to reset your control.

Solution:

1. Clear the ERROR from the screen: Press and hold the MY CYCLES and BACK buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds. The control will display any recorded errors. Please write down what error codes are shown on your screen in case service is needed. If a MORE icon is displayed on the screen, press MORE to list additional errors. When the EXIT button appears, press EXIT.
2. Remove Power: Follow the onscreen instructions to remove power (unplug unit) and then immediately plug unit back in.
3. Clear Setup Mode: After power is restored, a setup screen that begins with "Congratulations..." will be shown. DO NOT PRESS the OK button shown at the bottom of the screen. Press the START/STOP and POWER buttons simultaneously until the Home Screen is displayed. Your unit is ready to function normally.

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.
