Drum won't spin. Unit is telling me that "Motor is not rotating properly". Is there a way to do a continuity check on the Stator to see if thats the issue or if it could just be a relay not sending AC to the stator?

GE will not make its tech data public. There should be tech notes inside the machine that may help you, if not, try to talk to GE cause they won't talk to us.

Ok, here is what I found in a service manual on this model. Hope this helps.

Motor Assembly
• The washer has a direct drive pulse width modulation motor that does not utilize a belt, transmission, or mechanical brake.
• The motor assembly is composed of a coil wound stator, Hall sensor, and permanent magnet rotor.
• The motor varies speed and torque when the pulse width modulated voltage from the inverter changes frequency.
• The motor reverses rotational direction when the inverter reverses electrical polarity to the motor.
The washer motor has an approximate resistance value of 8 Ω between any two of the three wires:
• Blue to red - 8 Ω
• Red to yellow - 8 Ω
• Blue to yellow - 8 Ω
Resistance can be measured at the yellow, 3-pin connector on the inverter board or at the motor.
