Question about GE WBVH6240F Front Load Washer
Relays seem to click, in wash it trys but weak tub movement and lights dim with each half ****. In spin motor runs, water pumps out but no tubspin, hoping belt. What do you think?
No model # still in nook full of wet clothes. dose say Prodegy, has five knobs and row of lights, large capacity.
I lack microwave and a civics class to having asso deg in major applience repair 15 years ago. Seems like trans or belt, sounds like relays make and motor goes. Help me!!
I doubt this has an rear access panel to see the belt clearly,
if you rotate the tub manually then you will hear the motor spin if belt is attached ,
if tub will not turn at all you may have clothing stuck under tub,
fish around under the rubber flap.
you can just barely see the belt if you remove the top, and bottom access panels.
it is more likely that the motor has burned out the brushes in the motor because the lights are dimming.
the way to access the motor fully is to remove the top panel, bottom front panel, remove front control panel , front door and panel.
mark any wires you disconnect,
then pull the whole tub out and forward.
now if this model gives you a rear access panel you are blessed.
the motor will be hard to turn if the brushes are burned , take them out (watching orientation) they will be worn down or damaged , clean out the motor and look at brush surface is the copper clean and no giant pits or burned damage that will interrupt the flow. blow it out clean and wash it with wd40 to clear out the debris.
if you find the motor in good shape then the ccu (computer control unit is faulty.) likely the relays are having a solder joint issue on the mother board or the relays are burned /pitted.
