Ge washer wjre5500g1ww. I havent worked on very many GE's and this one is my first with the hydrowave system.  I am having a bit of trouble with it (the last tech that worked on it took the wiring diagram). It will not agitate or spin. I have replaced the fuse in the wiring harness which was bad and now it still wont agitate or spin.  With a little research i have seen some people talking about a green blinking light on the inverter. I'm not sure if my model has that light or if its just not working, because i see no light. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Can't find led on inverter. Have power to motor. I'm thinking it has to be that inverter.

If that's the correct model number, then this unit definitely has the perverter board on top of the motor.

You can also reset the perverter board:

 

To Reset the Inverter Board: Push the timer knob in so the washer is idle. Unplug the machine for one minute. Plug back in and raise and lower the lid six times within 12 seconds.

Yep. That's the model I have. The mysterious LED Is not illuminating at all. I guess I've done all I can without just ordering the motor. I' ll let you know if that fixes it. (Possative it will) thanks everyone.

Thanks samurai! Didn't have that diagram. The thermal I know was bad and changed it but still not working. Makes me wonder what blew it. Now I can check for correct voltages. (Darn those techs that take the wiring diagrams) thanks!!!

Da nada, compadre, hope it helps!

 

Yeah, parts changers that steal the tech sheet should be forced to spend an evening with Moostafa's amorous yaks.
