When the washer switches to low speed the motor starts turning on and off.  When the motor goes to low speed the controller selects another set of windings. The voltage feeding the low speed winding is being turned on and off at a rate of about once every 2 seconds. Does anyone know if this is a common failure of the controller board? The control board has a piggy back board that has the CPU and the other board has the control relays on it. I would think the relay is being told to cycle on and off. Wish I had a schematic to troubleshoot to a component level, any segestions ?

Model WBSE2090

Thanks in advance..

Yes, this is why we tell eveyone never to by G.E. appliances.  Early failure and parts pricing.

This is why the dryer was only $246 new-- what they lose in the initial sale price, they more than make up for in replacement parts sales. :contract:

Bottom line: you got what you paid for.

FIXED IT!!! ,
Turns out the internal switch in the motor that switches between high and low speed had burned contacts. Could not switch to low speed when the centrifugal force pushed the contact. Cleaned the contacts, probably wouldn't last long, Does anyone know if the switch can be bought? If not I'll rebuild the contacts.
