Why do i have a red blinking light on my motor when its in off position

Probably washer is smart enough to detect the out of balance.
Try to distribute the clothes in a balanced maner as soon as you detect it is out of balance.

Slow spin
watch this video to reset the computer board,if it doesn't help you have to replace the motor,this is not that good of a washer,whirlpool duet is a good washer but that's my choice
9 flashes - The brake resistor failed. This code will limit the motor to 50 rpms. Try clearing the code and if the code comes back replace the motor.

Replaced motor in ge profile washer now nothing happens when plugged in

Make sure your wire harness is plugged into the motor securely and also inspect the pins on the motor to make sure they aren't bent and make sure the motors part number match up with the old motor along with the different wires if its the wrong motor which a parts house can by mistake order the wrong one it wont work. Also does this washer have the electronic control board with the lights at the top or a led screen? If so might not be the motor might be a bad control board. I will stand by if you have further questions.

Washer starts to spin and then stops

The motor has an inverter on top of it with an idiot light. It blinks codes. 727c42b.jpgRemove the front cabinet and observe the blinks so you can get an idea what the problem might be.

I own a ge hydro washer. It won't spin or agitate

If you hear the motor go through the stages, but nothing is happening in the tub, the motor belt may be broken or off.

Replaced broken washer belt, but drum still won't spin.

you may have a bad bearing in a pulley,could be motor coupling. Take belt off and spin motor shaft and pulley both ways if it's free, then its more than likely not the motor. Now spin the drum with belt off and see if it does the same as with the belt on if it does it has to be a bad bearing or coupling to the drum. hope this helps

GE washer no main motor run so no agitate or spin

This is the electronic washer. Unplug for two minutes, plugin then open and close lid 7 times. This will reset motor. Also make sure belt is not broken.

GE washer WJSR4160G0WW agitation is way too fast & hard

check the 4 rubber cords at the top of the tub. If the washer has been moved they may need to be adjusted, you can see them by looking between the top of the tub and the top cover. You can turn them with your hand, and you may need to tighten them after.

GE Washer Spin Cycle Problem

gnarly, do you have the updated motor, harness and start cap? If it goes into spin and does this chunk a chunka chunka bit. Take a meter to the white and white/red wire going to the motor. If you have a steady 120V, replace the motor with the new kit. What the motor is doing is jogging between high to low speed. back.
