GE GTWN4250M0WS Hydrowave washer 7 flash code.

I have the above GE Hydrowave washing machine, and am getting a 7 Flash code on the motor Lid switch. I replaced the lid switch, and the machine worked for 4 loads before failing again. I verified the switch works. I attempted reset power down for 1 minute, plugged back in, opened and closed the lid 6 times within 12 seconds, and it will not reset. Is there anything else I should check before replacing the motor/inverter assembly?

SOURCE: how to replace lid switch assembly #3949247 for a Whirlpool Washe

we just bypass them,unless your going to stick your hand in there during spin cycle,-unplug washer,remove the 2 head screws 1 on each side of the head,flip the head up,you will see the lid switch jack in the middle of the top of washer, unplug it,cut the 2 outside wires and wire nut them together,plug back in,put the head back,plug in washer and your done,this way it cost you nothing to fix,the other way would be around $40,let me know how you do-mike

SOURCE: GE washer no main motor run so no agitate or spin

This is the electronic washer. Unplug for two minutes, plugin then open and close lid 7 times. This will reset motor. Also make sure belt is not broken.

Take the lid off,just open it & pull it straight up.There should be a little red button that the lid strikes against unless its a different model,in that case it has a magnetic reed switch under the right hand side of the hob.press this red switch instead of closeing lid,see if it fill with no problem.the lid may not be making good contact with switch..if thats not it then it may be the inlet valve..then you can try the hot,if theres no problem with hot then its the cold valve.

Top Loading Hydrowave. Washer fills but won't agitate. After a few minutes water is pumped out and it spins normally.


It almost sounds like the lid switch is working backwards but I have never seen that happen on a GE. The switch either works or goes bad. One other possibility is a defective water level switch. Thats also called a pressure switch sometimes.

The washer is only 1.5 years old and has been working fine until a recent power outage. After the poer was restored, the spin cycle quit working. Any suggestions?


Reset the motor is what you must do.

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 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.

GE top loading washing machine drains and fills but does not agitate or spin. Wiring around lid switch resolved problem for one load only. Flashing green light on motor circuit board seven flashed each...


7 blinks DOES indicate a problem with the lid switch.
Replace the switch, and inspect the wiring for cracks/wear.

Can you hear the motor spinning?
Is there black plastic chunks under the washer?
What is the model #?

Error code 105


The control should flash this error code if it cannot detect the lid switch opening and closing properly.
This error code may also be used if there is a disagreement between the motor and machine controllers on the state of the lid switch.

The control should not allow the unit to run in this condition. This code will also appear if the user presses the START key while the lid is open.

Open the lid or press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display

GE washing machine, wont spin


Same problem (but without any smell). You should try to reset the two computer boards in the washer. You do this by 1) unplugging machine and wait for 30 secs; 2) plug in machine; and 3) open and fully close the lid at least 5 times. This resets computer boards, which can get messed up by power surges, etc.
