I have GE washer that will not spin or agitate. Checked flashing light on inverter and light blinks once then pauses for 7 seconds. Tech paper says if you have 1 flash and long stop time to replace motor (brake). I checked with supply house and they tell me that there is nothing listed on the parts brake down as a motor brake. Does anyone out there have any helpful information.

Thanks

first, try this:
To clear errors, disconnect power until an audible clicking sound is heard (approximately 15 seconds).
Open and close the lid 5 or more times in any 12-second period within the first 30 seconds of power-up.
Errors will not clear if washer is in either agitate or spin mode.

otherwise

This is an inverter motor washer...brake is electronic and is part and parcel of the motor assembly ....$$$$.
do you have a flashing code on the led on the motor?
have you tried to clear it? (Unplug 5 min, plug in and lift and close lid 6 times within 30 sec of power up):
