Question about GE WHRE5260E Top Load Washer
GE model WHRE5260EOWW
during a cycle the washer will stop several times . This only happens on heavy loads, light loads run fine
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.

CHECK THE SENSOR SWITCH underneath the washer where the door closes , it could be loose or damaged, hope this helps AJ
