Anyone know the amp rating on the thermal fuse in the harness?? Any reason it couldn' t be replaced with an ATC or ATO fuse of the same rating?

I thought GE wanted the fuse removed? They have a "kit"... a piece of wire and 2 crimp connectors that they send with new motor/inverter.

  Original fuse is 10 amp. Service bulletin says;

 

New variable speed inverter motors no longer

require the in-line fuse. When replacing an

older Hydrowave inverter motor with the new

inverter motor, the in-line fuse must be

removed from the washer harness. Failure to

remove this fuse link will cause the fuse link to

fail due to the higher inrush current of the new

motor design.

 

Replacement motors will include a jumper wire

and 2 wire splices to remove the in-line fuse.

One time I found that fuse open and I jumped it out. The results were electrifying to say the least.
