Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Washing Machine Repair 21 February 2012 · 1,345 views

GE washer
Models WBVH, WCVH, WHDVH

Motor Assembly
The motor assembly is checked from the front of the washer and removed from the rear.
There are 2 methods to check the motor assembly.
Method A:
Remove the service panel.
Disconnect the motor wire harness.
On the motor plug, check for an approximate resistance value of 6 ohms between any two of the three wires:
Blue to white - 6 Ω
Blue to red - 6 Ω
White to red - 6 Ω
The sensor has a resistance value of approximately 118 Ω between the two orange wires

Method B:
Remove the service panel.
Remove the single Phillips-head screw that holds the right front leg of the inverter to the base pan.
Slide the inverter rearward to clear the guides that hold the rear of the inverter to the base pan.
Position the inverter to access the inverter board.
Slide the inverter rearward to clear the guides that hold the rear of the inverter to the chassis.
Remove the inverter thru the enlarged opening on the left side of the front frame.
On the inverter board, check for an approximate resistance value of 6 ohms between any two of the three terminals:
A to B (Blue to white) - 6 Ω
A to C (Blue to red) - 6 Ω
B to C (White to red) - 6 Ω

Note: The sensor and sensor wiring can be checked at the control board.
Check for a resistance value of approximately 118 Ω resistance between the 2 yellow wires located on the wire harness located at P9.
