GE Front Load Washer (fills and drains)

10 posts in this topic

Ok,Here we go, I have a GE Front Loader m#WHDVH626FWW, I'm getting code E42, I have replaced the Main Control Board and the Motor so far, go to test mode T-10 & T-11 nothing no tumble no spin, I removed the Inverter to test Ohms on red,white,and blue wires and get 6ohms which tells me that it is good. Everything I've read so far points to all of these 3 parts, so is it new Inverter time or not, I'm fresh out of ideas. Thanks for any enlightenment.

 

Cheers Larry   :wallbash:

Sounds like new inverter time, Brother Larry.  Double check all wire connectors at the inverter.  Does unit agitate after fill?

No agitation at all, motor stands still

Ok, although there wasn't much left to replace on this thing given the problem, the award goes to PDuff,, pretty much sum's it up, it was the Inverter after all.  Beer on Me! Oh well the way I look at this is that this machine is pretty much rebuilt for the high dollar stuff, besides the Pump, Pressure switch, Door Lock, H/C fill Solenoids and maybe some odds and ends, hoses and what not, but all that seemed to be ok, so away I go, on to my next task on my Honey Do list, whatever that may be. Thanks to all! Great Forum! :cheers:

Tip: Even though the Inverter tested good according to every ones white papers, when testing for the 6 ohms on the board and reads as such, the Inverter was still bad, I inspected the Bad one a little further and found an onboard Fuse on the circuit board that looks like it can be replaced without any soldering. I haven't tried to do it cause, well I'm up and running now, but maybe the next person can give it a shot and $ave some bucs.

Good Luck!
