My GE WSXH208A1WW front load washer will not advance through the cycles. It will fill and drain when advanced manually, but will not agitate. The most I can currently get out of it in terms in movement is a slight movement of the motor after it first fills, but then it stops. What I have done so far: I have replaced the timer motor and the door lock mechanism. Still the same problem. The tech guide says that if the motor does not move check the time line switch or the door lock switch. After replacing both those parts I'm at a loss. Testing: The tech guide recommends testing the voltage between pins 5 and 6 on the speed control unit and it registers .4 volts. As I manually advance the timer you will see some split second spikes in voltage (as high as 65 VAC) but nothing close to the 120 the tech sheet indicates I should get. I have also confirmed that there is 120 VAC going into the door locking mechanism. My guesses to date: I got another bad timer motor, there is a plug that is not connecting correctly, there is a bad wire, or I haven't got a clue! Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Hi, Have you checked the belt? If your washer has ZERO movement then the belt is the first thing to check. Have you tested the main control board? If the washer won't spin the motor control board might be defective. The motor control board provides power to the motor as well as direction and force. Have you tested the motor? If the washer won't spin the drive motor might be defective. This is not common. Check all of the other related parts to this symptom before replacing the motor. -ARQ
