Hi Dean,

The belt is elastic. When reinstalling the belt, ensure the belt is positioned to track in the 7 outer grooves of the motor pulley. Turn the tub drive pulley and roll the belt on the pulley.

It's maybe a good idea to replace the belt.

Gene,
Thanks. Why would they not put a groove in the tub pulley to hold the belt in place? Ordering a new belt, thanks for the part number.

Regards,
Dean

Default Replaced motor and Inverter per GE service guys visit

Gene,

Digging up an old topic....I have had similar problems with my WCVH6400J0WWW washer. Ge repair guy said it was motor and inverter in which I have replaced both with new parts. Reset T01 to "3" and old error code was 55 (Motor). The machine will not spin/tumble during tests or obviously when I try to wash a load. Any advice? I am $450 in parts and still no fix.

thanks,

Jeff

Default Can only make the rinse cycles work? Huh?

Hi All,

First, thanks for all this - very helpful. In brief, I have run all the diagnostic tests after resetting the error codes to E00. Any test involving spinning or tumbling fails but doesn't generate an error. Tested the red and blue wires in the inverter with a volt meter and get 123v when the motor is supposed to be turning.

BUT: I am able to consistently do the following:

1. start the washer normally
2. put into rinse/spin or drain/spin modes and press start.
3. washer seems to start the cycle, basket starts to tumble, then simply stops
4. at this point, if I press the start/pause button to pause, wait a minute, then press the same button twice, the basket begins to spin like it is supposed to and eventually ramps up to it's top speed and properly completes the cycle.

Huh?

Since it is able to ramp up the spin properly, it seems that the motor is fine and the inverter is able to properly control the motor speed - yet the disgnostic spin tests don't do squat.

It doesn't add up - anybody have any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Miltown

t01 - reset to #3
t02 - error code E54 only
t03 - cod 100, EE 13, inv 143
t04 - run through cycle 012, 123, 234, 345, 456, 567, 678, 789, 890 (all seemed to work)
t05 - displayed P and ran for about 1 min, then return to t05
t06 - ran to all levels and emptied, seemed fine
t07 - I did not perform
t08 - I did not perform
t09 - I did not peform
t10 - displays tt, does nothing, did not see any 120v reading at blue/red pins to inverter
t11 - shows 0, does nothing, no 120V at inverter
t12 - I did not perform
t13 - I did not perform
t14 - shows 0, does nothing, no 120V at inverter

I did check the motor resistance and shows 6 ohms across the three wire combinations, and sensor checks okay at 118 ohms. The only time I see 120V go to the red/blue input supply to the inverter is when I have the unit in normal run operation, start a wash cycle, the door will lock, unlock, lock, then the input to the inverter will slow ramp to about 112 V, then stop, then slow ramp again to about 112V, then stop, the drum will jerk slightly, and the unit will drain and stop working (flashing light on Start/Pause button).

I'm not sure if this leads to a bad inverter, or a bad control board output to the inverter. With a house of a wife and 3 daughters I need to make sure laundry can be done. Any help is appreciated!

thanks
Hi, I have the exact problem as you have described. Did you ever find a fix? Was it the control board"?
