GE Washer won't spin or agitate
Model Number: WHDSR316G6WW Brand: GE Age: 5 - 10 years
GE Washer will fill and drain, but won't spin or agitate after a power outage. The power outage was not weather related, not sure what caused the outage. But once the power came back on, the washer has not worked since. No other electronics were damaged. I've tried resetting multiple times, with multiple methods - no luck.
I've checked the following:
-Lid switch is good.
-Inline fuse going to the motor is good.
-Belt is good. If I turn the motor by hand, the belt turns the tub without issue.
-Confirmed with my multimeter that the motor is getting power.
Here are my findings so far:
1)The light on my inverter board keeps blinking 1 second on/off - which indicates 'Normal Standby'. It does NOT switch to 0.5 second on/off (Normal Running) when it should be in spin cycle. That leads me to think it's not being told to go into spin cycle. So does that point me towards the timer?
2) My Mode Shifter Coil Plug (the Red and Yellow wires) only reads 65 Ohms, I've read on several threads now it should be 98 Ohms (at least for the GE models in those threads). Is this any indication of a bad Mode Shifter Coil? Would this cause my problem, if so?
3) The washer seems to try to drain for an exceptionally long time. Probably 5 minutes after all the water is gone, it's still trying to drain. And of course no spinning.
