Default Won't agetate or spin
Model Number: WLSR3000G3WW   Brand: GE   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


The washer will go through a complete cycle. Fills, won't agitate, won't spin, will drain... The motor/inverter has a 1second on 1second off flash. Have jumped lid magnet sensor, which is good, and still no agitation, spinning. The fuseable link in the white/red line is good. Can't figure it out. Help please...

Thanks in advance,
John

You will have to take some line voltage readings at the motor/inverter to determine the problem. Do you have a multimeter and experience using it?

Eric, thanks for quick reply... Yes i have a multimeter and know how to use it... My only problem is the washing machine is in my youngest sons house 35 min away. But by all means give me all you have and over the weekend i be able to get through it.

Assume you have checked the belt and that you can freely rotate the basket by hand?

All readings are with one probe of the meter on neutral which is the wht/red wire of the leftmost connector. Check for 120vac with the other probe on the red/blk wire and orn wire (lid closed or switch bypassed) of the leftmost connector. The rightmost connector is from the timer and two wires will have 120vac on them depending on mode and speed. (one probe still on neutral).

High speed agitate is 120vac on the blue and violet/white wires
Low speed agitate, white and violet/white
High speed spin, red and blue
Low speed spin, red and white

If these check out ok, then you have a faulty motor/inverter.

Eric,

Sorry for slow response, was only able to get back over to sons place today...

At any rate, yes belt is intact, drum and agitator turns freely with no roughness or stiff points.

AC voltage readings with washer turned off and inverter/ motor green led blinking on one second, off one second.

Red with black trace. 122.7 vac
Orange. 122.6 vac

High speed agitate
Blue to Violet w/ white trace. 3.59 vac

Low speed agitate
White to Violet w/ white trace. 3.59 vac

High speed spin
Red to Blue. 2.59 vac

Low speed spin
Red to White. 0.32 vac

If I take vac neutral ( White with red trace ) to Blue, Violet with white trace, White and Red, all readings are 0.000 vac.


All voltage readings are AC.

On a strange note. I had left the unit unpluged from last week. I pluged it in and started a cotton wash cycle,with low water setting, and the washer filled and started agitating. This did not last. Only agitated for mayby 5 min and would not spin. Back to not agitating or spinning as the cycles progressed. Discharge pump worked through the cycles as it should.

Where to now?

Thanks in advance Eric,
John

You need to take the readings with the washer on and set for the specific mode of operation..i.e. agitate high, spin high...etc. These voltages are from the timer and simply tell the inverter what to do. For example, if set to spin high, washer on, there should be 120vac on the red and blue wires. The inverter interprets this as "go to high speed spin". The inverter has a microprocessor and firmware to operate the machine.

Eric,

Got you.. Should have known better, old dog... To obtain high spin or high agetate use heavy duty cycle and low speeds delicate cycle?

Will head back over there tomorrow...

Thanks,
John

What do you mean by all terminals have line voltage???? When set to high speed spin you should only have line voltage on the red and blue wires. That's with one probe on neutral, not across the red and blue wires.
