GE WPRB8050 Profile Washer...control board problem??

The LED lights on the control board cycle randomly, some times not allowing the washer to be started. The lights blink and beep randomly all day, prompting us to unplug the unit when not in use. Tried unplugging and resetting electronics multiple times. The unit is progressively getting worse. Suspect control board failure, as otherwise unit operates fine. I would like to repair myself, are there instructions online on how to disassemble front control panel to access control board?

This sounds goofy but I saw it on another help site and it worked for me when my 8050 washer's controls crashed.

Unplug washer for 1 minute then plug back in.

Open and close the door rapidly six or more times within 30 seconds.

After I did this my machine worked normally.

Step one is in the owners manual but didn't work for me. It was only after opening and closing the door rapidly that the controller reset and worked properly.

It has happened now and again, but in most cases it was traced to the control circuit board. If under warranty, have a technician check it out.

Faulty stop pause button on ge profile wpre8150

This is caused by a faulty control board. The button you referred to is part of the board and the control board manages all aspects of the wash cycle. You will need to replace the control board. Here is a link to the part you need.

Ge profile wpre6150k1wt washer does not complete cycle. washer stops with tub full of water. Will not start again. tried unpluging to reset. this worked a couple of times but not working now


First make sure to test the lid switch assembly, you can jump it to test it. If the lid switch and motor is also fine then the control board should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

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.

Press and hold the my cycles button and the back button simultaneously for 3 seconds. This will reset the control panel and allow you to see any stored errors.
