ge front load washer WBVH5100H0WW

10 posts in this topic

Replaced control board and now on the Drain/spin option , the washer will not spin.It adds water then drains and then stops after time counts down about 3 minutes. Then start light is blinking. You can press start again and the washer will go thru the same sequence of events again,and once again a few minutes of the cycle will be lost, but never any spin?

I replaced the control board,but at the t-01 selection during diagnostic mode I am not sure that i have the proper model selected.

Could this cause my no spin issue?

Topic title edited, corrected model number.

Get the tech sheet and do test t02 to see if there are any stored error codes. If you have code 60, 61 63 or 64, then replace the door lock assembly since you're already replace the main control.

Ran diagnostics numerous times. No codes. Tech sheet says when changing control board , to reprogram (model) and select 05. Afterwards I cannot access the drain and spin option but all other cycles are available.

So iset the model to 04 ..at the t-02 diagnostic function and I can then access the drain/spin ???? Why doesnt this work on the model 05 setting???? I checked my part numbers on the control board replacement and they match WH12X10355.. also to note ,I have changed door lock assemblies in the past,apparenly same as whirlpool(i think i took one off a whirlpool at the shop).

That is odd-- the programming bulletin also says to select 5 for this model. Are you sure about the model number?

It makes the rrrccckkkthump(if i spelled that right) sound like it is locking/engaging ... is it necesary to remove the lock and visually verify that it engaged, or is the afore mentioned sound sufficient?

Humbly groveling in ignorance

Ah sold it! With no drain /spin cycle! Educated the buyer on how to unplug, access the diagnostics , reset model from 04 to 05,(when extra drain/spin is needed-- and then unplug follow same procedure,reset to 05 again to run the other cycles. See no problem....we call that double bypass in appliantology....NEXT!
