Default Electrical Troubleshooting
Model Number: GLWP2000M0WW   Brand: GE   Age: 1 - 5 years

Hello to all,

Tub will not agitate in my GE washer (GLWP2000M0WW), however it will spin.
Checked the agitator coupler - excellent condition.
Pressed down on agitator while in wash cycle - no agitation.
I can hear the motor humming.

I reviewed some of the agitator problems on this forum - determined that it may be the timer or the motor or the transmission/brake assembly.

I scoured Youtube for information and got a bit on checking the different circuits with a multimeter and what to look for as a reading. However the creator of the video was zoomed in too far and did not provide any wire color(s) or which connector(s) to check. He only conducted a check on the lid switch.

Which connectors (wire colors) do I test to check the motor and are there any connectors to check transmission/brake assembly.

Thanks for any help

The motor is not the problem. The same windings are used for agitate as are used for spin, the only difference being the polarity to the start winding is reversed which is accomplished through timer contacts. The reverse polarity causes the motor to run in the opposite direction. Try rotating the motor pulley by hand in the CCW direction (viewed from below) while someone observes the agitator. If the pulleys rotates freely but agitator doesn't move back and forth, then the transmission is faulty. If pulleys won't rotate, the transmission is faulty. If it does work ok by hand but motor just hums with no rotation during agitation, it's the timer.
