Question about GE Profile Harmony WPGT9360E 4.0 Cu. Ft. King-Size Washer with Stainless Steel Basket
I have a GE HARMONY PROFILE Washing Machine, and a few days ago I showed an error message of a broken Clutch Coupling. After doing some research I saw this message is not unusual and that by doing a reset sometimes fixes the problem...and for a few loads it did!
This morning however I was finishing a SMALL load of laundry when I heard a "POOF" and I want to be very clear on this sound so that others reading this can understand the sound. It WAS NOT a knock, bang, grind,pop, or shatter, it was a VERY VERY loud "POOF" much like a gas stove sounds like when it ignites.... but this was 10 times louder.
I immediately ran to the wash room to find the unit emitting smoke from the top back and also from the tub area. The smell was of burnt rubber or plastic. I quickly unplugged the unit and made sure it was not on fire. I let it set for about 5 min, then I plugged it back in. NOTHING. No light up or picture on the LCD screen, no sound from the buttons, NOTHING. It is like there is absolutely NO power getting to the unit. What could this be. I have been here before and received great support concerning my dryer which needed a blower motor, I am ALL EARS on what could help this situation.
Maybe not...try replacing the main pcb first. but heres a tip...look at the plastic holder of the main board, do you think water could drop inside the board?...if you think so then better think of a cover that could prevent the water from entering the board. coz that's what happened before... sometimes suds overflow and make their way to the board thru the wires or simply dropping to the board directly... i hope i was able to help....
