Hi there!

It sounds like a control board issue as all other parts are working.

Does it work on other programs / cycles?

    Motor Inverter Board that flashes 9 times indicates "Brake
    Resistor Open". GE's fix is to replace the motor which GE sells for
    about $238.
    That should be it,

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.

WFL 2260 Fills hot, fills cold, no wash action, move control to drain, empties, move control to spin, no spin but goes thro. cycle ends program door unlatches, any suggestions?


Motor brushes, worse case scenario motor complete. Run the following motor test.
1. Put main dial to off
2. Press and hold start button whilst turning dial one click to left (easycare 30).
3. When display show 8.88 or two of the progress light come on, release the start button
4. Turn dial anticlockwise to 60 cotton (take the long way, NOT thru OFF or you'll have to start over)
5. Press start

6. Motor should rotate in both directions, pump runs, motor kicks up to full spin.
7. No motor action and two lights flashing on progress lights (separated by a light that's not on) indicates a motor fault.
As suggested brushes or complete motor.
Hope this helps

Will not spin or agitate


Remove the front panel. Observe the motor flashes.
The motor blinks on and off all the time.
It blinks faster when running.
If a failure occurs you will get the following flashes:

1 flash bad motor
2 flashes slipping belt
3 flashes corrupted software bad motor
4 flashes failed mode shift circuit
5 flashes bad motor
6 flashes locked motor check for objects between tub
7 flashes bad lid switch.
8 flashes motor overheated too much soap
9 flashes brake resister is toast bad motor.

To Reset the Inverter Board: Push the timer knob in so the washer is idle. Unplug the machine for one minute. Plug back in and raise and lower the lid six times within 12 seconds.

After resetting the inverter board, put the machine in a spin cycle and see if it runs. If not, check for a green blinking light on the inverter board. It will flash failure codes. If no light is visible you have a blown fuse built into the neutral side of the harness on the white/red wire.

themobilian_2813.jpgthemobilian_31.pngIf you see a small bubble in this black heat seal and the motor light is not on then the fuse within is blown replacement part is WH49X10041
What else do I have? Oh yeah how about the SERVICE MANUAL

The motor has a power inverter on top of it. Try and reset the motor by doing this:

Turn the washer off. Unplug the machine for one minute. Plug back in and raise and lower the lid six times within 12 seconds. It may take a few times. The motor has a green light on it that blinks. If it ain't acting right it will display flashes:

1 flash bad motor
2 flashes slipping belt
3 flashes corrupted software bad motor
4 flashes failed mode shift circuit
5 flashes little green men bad motor
6 flashes locked motor check for objects between tub
7 flashes bad lidswitch.
8 flashes motor overheated too much soap
9 flashes brake resister is toast bad motor.

After resetting the inverter board, put the machine in a spin cycle and see if it runs. If not, check for a green blinking light on the inverter board. It will flash failure codes according to the picture above. If no light you probably have a blown fuse built into the neutral side of the harness on the white/red wire.themobilian_4.png If you see a liitle bubble in there then you know that dude is toast.
That fuse is: $7.50

Diagnostic Test:
The diagnostic test is performed by using the Program Knob. To START THE TEST:
? On non-digital display models, turn the Program Knob to start position, Drain/Spin.
? On digital display models, turn the Program Knob to start position, Touch Up. (NOTE: If the model has a timer dial that can be rotated 360?, turn the Program Knob to start position, Drain/Spin.
? Press Pause Cancel to turn off LEDs.
? Within 5 seconds, press and hold the Option and Pause Cancel buttons until LEDs start sequentially chasing, then release buttons.
1. All the LEDs will sequentially light. Pressing a button below a light cluster will light all the LEDs in that cluster at one time to confirm functionality.
2. Turn the program knob (1) click clockwise from the start position. The hot water solenoid will activate and hot water should enter through the detergent compartment.
3. Turn the program knob (2) clicks from the start position. The bleach water solenoid will activate and cold water should enter through the bleach compartment.
4. Turn the program knob (3) clicks from the start position. The bleach and the wash water solenoids will activate and cold water should enter through the softener compartment.
5. Turn the program knob (4) clicks from the start position. The door lock solenoid will activate.
6. Turn the program knob (5) clicks from the start position. The door lock solenoid will deactivate and the loading door can be opened.
7. Turn the program knob (6) clicks from the start position. The washer will fill and tumble.
8. Turn the program knob (7) clicks from the start position. The washer will fill and spin (leakage test).
9. Turn the program knob (8) clicks from the start position. The drain pump and door lock solenoid will activate and the washer will operate in high spin. SAFETY WARNING: If power is removed during this test, the door can be opened. To prevent injury, DO NOT put your hands inside when the tub is rotating.
10. Turn the program knob (9) clicks from the start position. The control will signal the last error code.
Exiting Diagnostic Mode
There are two options for exiting the Diagnostic Test mode and returning the washer to normal operation:
a) Unplug the power cord, wait 5-8 seconds, then reconnect the power cord OR
b) Turn the program knob clockwise 2 or 3 clicks after the Start Position. Press Options and Pause Cancel buttons together for a few seconds until wash cycle LEDs appear. If a situation arises where you cannot exit the Diagnostic mode as described above and the bank of 5 LED?s on the right end remain ON regardless of Program Knob position, a combination of pushed buttons may have caused the control to enter a special factory test mode. Disconnect power to reset the control to return washer to normal operation is this occurs.
To clear latest stored error code:
Place the control into Diagnostic test Mode.
? Turn the program knob clockwise 9 clicks from the Start Position. The control will signal the last error code.
? Press and hold the Options and Pause Cancel buttons for 3 seconds. The code will be cleared.
? Exit Diagnostic Mode to return the washer to normal operation.

Our washing machine (Zanussi ZWF 1632 W) flashes 5 times


This is a motor problem the end light flashing 5 times indicates error E50. The motor has either got wet or has just failed i would suggest trying to dry it 1st but i would suspect the motor has gone down to earth usually having to replace it. The part no.
