GE Front Load Washer GFWN1100LOWW press start in wash cycle, machine door locks, pauses, unlocks, Pauses, locks. Begins filling, agitates, drains, then stops and start button LED blinks. Push start again and duplicates fill, agitate, drain & stop,
Timer counts down as this short cycles progress. Never enters a heavy agitate mode. Continues into drain & spin cycle. Tub will spin slowly, building speed, but will never hit full spin speed.
When put in service mode, Error code is E46, 2nd code is E42. There is no Error 46 but 42 code is on service mini manual with motor drive above limits. Gives a few items to check.
All service test check out except for t10 tumble test & t11 spin test. A '0' is displayed in window & nothing happens in either test. How do I check for motor or motor board as being good? Or for that matter control board being OK?
I checked all wire connections & found the yellow wire to the thermistor broke of connector. Soldered wire back to connector plug, I don't think that is the machines problem. Also the tub has a chunk broke off were the balance weight was attached.
Any suggestions, new control board? Motor? or Motor inverter board? What may I test or should I have it junked? Customer is going to patch Large hole with fiberglass patching bondo. He thinks it is worth repairing.
