Note: This solution is intended only for asker qualityisc as per Live Chat session discussion. Error code reads E47 which means the Control board thinks the PTC circuit (wax motor) is open.

Unplug the machine then remove the spring-loaded wire loop that holds in place the front of the bellows over the lip of the door opening in the front panel.

Using needle nose pliers, start where the spring and wire are connected at the bottom of the bellows and pull the wire out of the groove of the bellows then pull the bellows off of the lip of the front panel.

Measure the resistance of the wax motor. The normal resistance is around 1500 ohms. Shorted or My machine wach but do not spin a the end. - 27a1c27.jpgit wax motor means the door lock and switch assembly needs to be replaced.

Simply
replace the door lock and switch assembly (part #131763202) if the wax motor reads shorted or open to address the issue. But if the wax motor resistance is normal, check the continuity of the door lock and switch assembly wire harness, particularly the wax motor wire harness. Start with the continuity of the red/black wire of the wax motor harness to each of the red/black wires of the door lock and switch assembly harness. They should all have continuity; otherwise, replace the harness.

Remove the top panel to access the control board if further continuity test is necessary or if the red/black wire of the wax motor harness has continuity with the all other red/black wires of the door lock and switch assembly harness.

Remove the screws attaching the top panel to the rear of the cabinet then lift the panel off. The console can be removed from the cabinet to completely access the control board connections, particularly the door lock and switch assembly harness connections. Check the continuity of the red/black wires at the dooMy machine wach but do not spin a the end. - 0bdb8ce.jpgswitch assembly to the red/black wire of the harness connected to connector J2 on the control board.

The problem is in the control board if the wax motor is good and the door lock and switch assembly wire harness has all the necessary continuity. The only viable solution, should that be the case, is the replacement of the control board.

Is this a GE Washing Machine? This sounds like one, it sounds like the shifter coil has failed, this it's not locking to engage the agitator. So it's basically stuck in spin mode, this way, even though the tub does not turn.

If your washer washes and drains but does not spin, you need a new door lock mechanism. Not too hard to fix yourself.

Rinse and spin


there is a safety switch on the top...and when you close the lid it pushes down on that switch. investigate that switch and see if its just corroded or needs replacement...i have that same problem when i leave the lid open on my washer...then it works fine when i close it...so im figuring that your's thinks its still open. I hope this helps you out ! and give your wife a hug 8-)
