The mode shifter was replaced,and the first time customer used it ,it failed again.I put it into the test mode and it spun at hi speed,so am I looking at a bad part or a bad control?

Thank you.

So it runs in test mode but not in a regular cycle? Sounds like could be either a control problem or a customer use problem.

Did you check the inverter board for the infamous 2-flashes error message? More info about these here:

And I PMed you the link for a service bulletin that may apply.

Service manual for this washer is in the repair manual stash.

It spins in test mode,But in agitation it spins at the same time because the mode shifter is bad and will not pull gear up out of the way.The sheet says that if it spins fast in test vmode the motor,inverter and control are ok.

After replacing the part did you reset the fault?

I found a GE update on this problem.It seems that my motor/inverter has to be replaced along with the mode shifter.It all depends on the part number on the motor/inverter unit.

blessings to all of you for your help.
