You're right, it is a top loader, sometimes I'm pretty dense

If there is the correct voltage to the motor inverter and the motor is dead, the motor is the culprit.

First, I want to thank you for helping everone out on here, I have already read many of your suggestions and have checked a few things. I have a GE washer model #WCSR4170G2WW that will not spin or agitate. Yesterday the machine started bouncing pretty bad as I had an un-even load in it, and now it is not working properly. The washer fills and drains, but just clicks through the rest of the cycle and does nothing else. I have the front cover off and see the green LED light flashing. The light appears to be blink approximately 1 second on 1 second off. The belt is intact and spins the tub easily (by hand). Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Ryan

The first thing I would do is reset the washer controls.

Unplug the washer for a few minutes. Reconnect the power and open & close the lid 10 times within 12 seconds. Post the results.

I followed the procedure a couple times to ensure I got it right, but unfortunately do not see any change whatsoever. Same symptoms as listed above. Thanks again, Ryan.

Check the mode shifter coil. Remove the plug C7 (the second plug from the right side with the two wires - red & yellow) and measure the resistance across these wires. It suppose to be about 98 Ohms.

I measured the resistance between the two wires you suggested and I am getting right around 67 ohms regardless if the washer is on or off. Hope this information tells you something.

Thanks again,

Check and post the part number on the top inverter cover. If there are no numbers, check the motor label. It should look similar to 175D5106G***.


ryn1127 12-21-2010 03:30 PM


The label on the motor has the number 175D5106G036 on it.

Check the lid switch. On the motor there are four plugs. Disconnect the plug farthest left. Place one lead of your ohmmeter on the line terminal of the power cord and the other on the orange (may not be orange) wire of the motor plug. It should be the wire on the far end directly opposite of the green wire. You should get continuity across this with the lid closed and it should be open when the lid is opened.
