Check for 120vac on the leftmost connector of the inverter board. You should have 120vac between wht/red and red/blk as well as between wht/red and orn. If ok, and you don't see the flashing green LED, the inverter is bad. If the motor has been replaced within the last couple years, the new style motor has a flap on the right side. You must lift the flap to see the LED which is now red, vice green. The inverter is not repairable/replaceable, you must replace the whole motor/inverter unit. New motors come with a jumper to replace the fuse which must be removed. Make sure you get the right motor/inverter, there are about 5 different versions and they are not interchangeable.

There is no visible LED on this board? I have the board off and cover off and do not see led anywhere? cover over inverter has a stamp of july 2006, is it possible aftermarket motor with no led? Is there another way to check codes, I have read about "service mode" is there another way to diagnose?

Can you provide a clear picture of the top of the circuit board? No aftermarket replacements that I'm aware of. Service manual shows LED and codes.

Flashing continuously 1 second on/off is normal, no error code. If you are seeking advice, please start a new topic with your symptoms and washer model number.

check the harness fuse which is wired in the neutral side of the line. The fuse is wrapped in the motor harness located along the right side of the cabinet.

Is there a similar fuseable link for a WLSE3150A0WW? I couldn't it find on on the White/Red wire up front; maybe in the control section? Same symptoms. I have a bad motor, but I wanted to make sure I was getting current down to it before purchasing another one. Thanks!

No fuse, totally different washer design.

Default Washer won't agitate

I have a GE Washer Model # WHDSR209D5WW. It won't agitate I followed the steps to reset the motor and then ran a small load. The only thing that happens is a buzzing sound but it is coming behind cycle selector knob. It runs through the rest of the cycle fine. Any help would be great!

Thanks

The reset procedure does not apply to your washer model. Does the washer fill with water? If it fills, when it stops filling, does the timer advance on it's own? If it doesn't, you likely have a bad water level switch. If it does, it's likely a bad timer. There is always the possiblity of faulty wiring/connectors between these devices.
