GE wssh300g0ww: door clicks, then dishonorable beeping

20 August 2012 - 02:54 AM

Great samurai,

I am battling a beastly GE washer. It was working fine recently, but now when I try to set it to work, all I hear is the usual CLICK of the door trying to lock (I think) and then... beeping from the console.

I also noticed that the *breaker* for the washer had tripped recently. I had to reset it to get power to the machine. Yeah, not a good sign. Can you say "deep fried tempura"?

I do have the tech sheet from here: ftp://ftp.electrolux-na.com/ProdInfo_PDF/Webster/134859600e.pdf


A) this tech sheet doesn't seem to correspond to my model. I have it on good authority that this is the sheet, tho (got it from your old forums). I can't get it to do the diagnostic test, partly because there is no "Drain/Spin" position on the Program Knob as described in the sheet. In fact, it's not even called the Program Knob on my machine; it's labeled CYCLES. Nor is there a start position on the program knob, nor are there 9 clicks from the start position as described at the bottom of page 2 ("to clear latest stored error code").

B ) assuming I have the right tech sheet (which seems like a big leap to me!), I am able to get what seems to be an error code: one beeping flash of START followed by three beeping flashes of the five indicator lights (Door Lock, Wash, Rinse, Final Spin, and Control Lock). Note that (unlike what is described in the thrice-damned tech sheet!) START flashes before the vertical indicators, and the flashing does NOT repeatedly signal the code as long as I hold the buttons down. Nooo, no. Instead it goes back to normal operation and the usual indicators light up (START flashing, vertical indicators show what cycle is queued to run, etc.).

C) Assuming I have the right tech sheet and I haven't read this crap wrong, my error code is E31... and there is no E31.

Any advice?

I'm definitely wrassling with a wssh300g0ww; I doublechecked the label on the unit several times.

p.s. When I tried to search this forum for "GE", it came up with nothing. Very curious search mojo; I thought there'd be dozens. Searching for "wssh300g0ww" turns up one post that does not match my problem.
