Re: GE Washer stops during cycle

i know this thread is old news now, but i came across as i am having the same problem. Of course the permanent solution is to replace the board, except the problem with that is, GE has stopped making them four years ago, plus, the cost of the part is about $316, which is over half the cost of the whole machine!
Anyway, the cause of my issue with the washer just shutting down during mid cycle, i believe was caused by overheating of the control panel. It seems the genius' at GE designed this thing to work under complete submerged conditions. The entire board is encased in some sort of latex rubber, with exception to the heatsink and transformer, and then enclosed in a non vented space. I am surprised the board hadn't failed sooner. So when I took the thing apart and inspected it, i found that both the transformer and heatsink were extremely hot. To vent the heat out of the control compartment, I just simply drilled some hole in the panel above where these two components were on the board. Put it back together, plugged it in, and voila! i have been successfully doing laundry again for 2 days without the washer stopping in mid cycle.
Hope this has helped.

Sounds like the contacts in the timer has a problem. Unplug washer. Remove the back of the washer and spray WD40 in the timer. Put towels around and under to to collect excess runoff.
Rrotate washer dial 25 times and spray some more wd40. Rotate 25 times again. Do a wash load. If it works put everting back together.

GE Model WBSE2090A2WW - shut off intermittenly

Does the machine drain on its own or do you drain it manually? The drain pump may be jammed or seized. Try giving the door a light bang with your hand on the handle. The door interlock could be faulty. If the machine starts up after you hit it with your hand on the door handle, the interlock is faulty. Good Luck!!
