In Topic: brain fart ge dryer ripped off model number

 DMM's have a very high input impedance and are therefore susceptible to picking up and displaying low stray voltages but if you are reading a steady 120vac on your DMM, that ain't no "ghost" voltage. The voltage tester has it's use but you don't need one to find out what the problem is. The voltage tester does not give you an accurate voltage reading, it is just a "relative" reading.

  You don't need the so called "loading" meter. The DMM is fine. If you are monitoring the voltage across the blue and white wires of the motor connector with the motor connected and you get 120vac when you activate the start switch then you have good hot and neutral to the motor connector. It certainly sounds like you have a faulty terminal in that connector.

In Topic: GE washer HSWP1000M2WW question about agitation speed

01 July 2015 - 03:47 PM

  These Hydrowave models use a variable speed electronically controlled motor so it really depends on the computer algorithm of the particular model. One service manual I have for some 2009 models states "During wash, the agitation will ramp up to higher speeds, it will drop to a lower speed before drain" so it's entirely possible that this particular model does use different agitation speeds at times.

I'm measuring with a dmm. I'm getting 120 lbu to blk. Then I hit start and measure 120 vac lbu to white

 

  If that is truly the case and your measuring this at the motor connector with the motor connected, then either the motor connector is not making good contact or the motor is bad, plain and simple.

In Topic: GE dryer heating after timer shut off

01 July 2015 - 06:49 AM

  They all work that way. Near  the end of cycle the heat is turned off for the cool down part of the cycle, then timer advances to OFF. In the case of models with electronic control, a relay is used.
