Alright, thanks for the tips guys. I will take another look at it and make sure the connections are nice and tight with continuity running through. Will post back with updates once I do this.

Sorry guys, meant to give you some updates to this problem for anyone else that has it in the future but got swamped and forgot about it. We ended up checking the pump and although it looked ok from the outside, it was flooded with water and clearly bad. We put a new relay on the CCU and got a new pump installed and the machine works flawlessly, well as well as a Turbocharged Duet Sport can work.

Thanks guys, will check into the pump. It is making a lot of sense but would not have ever have guessed to check the pump. Just saved me a huge headache with this machine.

It never stayed on long enough for me to get to the error codes and when the board was replaced it fired right up so I didnt check the codes. I will look into the pump as I believe that was the time it usually got knocked out was a few seconds after it had locked the doors.

Are you sure you used the correct motor when you replaced it?  RE:  http://appliantology...lacement-chart/

Yes, it is the correct motor for this model number. It was replaced with WH20X10057 from GE specifications.


  Pretty easy to troubleshoot with a multimeter at the inverter board. On the leftmost connector, using wht/red for your neutral to the meter, you should have 120vac on the red/blk wire and the orn wire (gray on some models). Still using the wht/red for neutral, on the rightmost connector (control voltages from timer) you should get 120vac on these wires depending on mode of operation.

Low speed agitate, wht and vio/wht

High speed spin, blu and red

Low speed spin, wht and red


  If you are getting the appropriate voltages for a particular mode and the motor isn't working, the motor is faulty or you have the wrong one. There are about 5 different versions of this motor/inverter and they are not interchangeable. On washers that use an electronic control board versus a timer, the control voltages are low DC levels, not line voltage. The inverter has it's own microprocessor, memory and program algorithm for operating the motor. The control voltages from the timer simply tell it what mode to begin operating in. If you are not getting the proper voltages from the timer, the timer could be faulty or you may have a faulty pressure switch or wiring/connection problem. There should be a wiring diagram behind the control panel, looks like you should have mini-manual 31-16577.



Thanks Eric. I will look into it and see if its not the timer or anything else giving it the trouble. The motor is definently correct for the model. If the timer is faulty, would it just leave the new motor on standby by not sending it the appropriate signals? We tested the pressure switch the first time diagnosing it and it was in the right voltages so we know that it's not the problem.
