GE WBVH6240F0WW trying to repair this unit....first symptoms,intermittent spin on motor.Sometimes it would,sometimes it would not. Very dishonorable! Ran through test modes,got code 54.Checked ohms on motor,the only difference was,ohms supposed to be 118,I got 114 to 117,fluctuating.Replaced motor with new. Checked inverter.Got 120 VAC there,but not a constant. Replaced inverter.Power up.Ran through test modes,get no error codes.....however,test t10 ,t11and t14,still get no spin, no error code.However,when run washer through wash cycle,when water filling,water only runs for maybe 10 seconds,stops,during this time,motor may spin tub one or two times,stops,and washer drain pump starts.Ran through set-up,run test modes again,still no error,test t05 and t06 run fine....water fills to all levels,drain pump works fine,still no spin,no error code on motor.Run simulated wash cycle....same problem,when water filling,water only runs for maybe 10 seconds,stops,during this time,motor may spin tub one or two times,stops,and washer drain pump starts.Today am going to start from power going into washer,track all terminal connections and try to isolate problem.....hoping that this very dishonorable washer will reveal its problem and I can revert its psychosis to whatever normal is,if there is a normal on this posessed machine. Any help is appreciated!! Thanks!

Possibly a flakey connection in the wire harness between the motor and inverter board. Inspect each connector in the molex connectors to make sure they're not wallowed out and making a sloppy fit on the terminal. If you see discoloration or browning on part of the molex, this is a good indication that this is what's going. But absence of discoloration does not, in itself, mean all is well. Disconnect and reseat all connections to the motor and control board.

Thank you for your response. As I was going through the ohms checks,I did check all molex connectors...no brown marks,discoloration or anything,per your advice.Did not want to spend more money,but as I did not find anything else,put in a new control board,and miraculously that chased out the demons! I now have an honorable washer again!! This Grasshopper thanks you for your leadership,Fermented Grand Master!!

Control board was my next smooth move. Good job taking the initiative!
