Question about GE WBSR3140DW Top Load Washer
My GE washer - GE WHDRR418G1WW model top loaderWill drain but not spin. I have had this problem twice before (new Jan 2008). I had the tech come out the first time. He told me that sometimes the computer gets confused if there has been a surge of electicity. He unplugged the unit and then opened and closed the lid for a number of times (20? 40?) Then plugged it back up and it worked just fine. It did it again a few months ago, I followed those steps and again got it to working fine. Now it has done it again. I am not certain about the exact steps, whether it was 20 40 or another number of times I need to open and close the lid. Or if I was supposed to unplug it for two minutes, and then re plug it in before I did the open/close lid thing. I actually though I was to do the open/close lid routine while unit was unplugged, but I am not sure. Anyone else know about this reset procedure? He told me that if I bought a surge protector, we shouldn't have this problem. I bought one and now I have this problem anyway.
The next time this condition occuers, take the front panel off the machine and look under the top cover of the motor at the right front side. There is a LED light on the motor inverter board there. If it is flashing twice, then a pause, then repeating this again and again you most likely have a loose hub nut on your wash basket. (the motor reads this as belt slippage)
1. Order and install a new hub washer (WH2X1199) and a new split ring (WH2X1195) along with a new hub nut (WH2X1193). If the hub part of the basket is worn, replace that as well (plastic tub models = WH45X10027, SS tub = hub / basket WH45X10060.
2. Tighten hub nut, torque to 110 ft-lbs.
3. Clear flash code error. (your method to clear code is a bit more extreme than required, but will work)
