#301241 ge profile washer wcse4160b1cc does not know hot or cold

Posted by olyteddy on 17 August 2014 - 10:57 PM

If it's like a lot of other GE washers 'Cold' is not the same as 'Tap Cold'. They mix a bit of hot in and monitor the temperature with a thermistor. The thermistor doesn't read when the lid is up so they run straight cold with it up. Try filling with the lid closed. If you don't open it while it's filling it should be cold.

#300823 GE Profile Washer WPRE6150K2WT

Look at the motor. LED on circuit board on top - flashing 4 times bad modeshifter. Green, hard to see LED you probably need to replace the motor too.

#299174 Bad Bearings in Outer Drum, Whirlpool Duet Washer, WFW9750WL02

Posted by olyteddy on 20 July 2014 - 11:01 PM

I would hound Whirlpool relentlessly about the issue. I've had success with GE in getting the parts to do this kind of repair for free, but I tend to the needs of around 5,000 GE appliances.  If you can get the parts it's not a repair for the faint hearted and will require several hours of skilled labor to accomplish.

#299034 GE topload WPRE6150H1WT No output from motor, but voltage to motor

Posted by olyteddy on 18 July 2014 - 10:18 PM

meh. I just complained to my GE rep about having to replace the mode shifter and motor and she sent me half a dozen sets. That's about 2 kilo-bucks (wholesale) in parts!  :tongue:



PS: I still have 40 or so of these machines ticking away like time bombs...

#298319 GE Refrigerator GSH25JSXNSS no water dispensing but ice working

Posted by olyteddy on 10 July 2014 - 09:17 AM

Open the John Guess connection at the bottom of the door (behind the kick plate). Press the dispenser (with the door closed). Is the floor wet? (yes) Frozen Door Tube...(no) Valve Problem or possibly frozen water tank. If yes you might be able to just leave the light on to keep it unfroze, after you thaw it the first time.

#297899 GE GTDX100EM1WW doesn't stay running

Posted by olyteddy on 04 July 2014 - 11:12 PM

Could also be the belt switch on these GEs. You'd think the switch would keep it from running at all but with GE that's not always the case.

#297543 Samsung WF338aab won't drain or spin

Posted by olyteddy on 29 June 2014 - 11:07 PM

I have an idea. And it's not good. You are describing the decay products of the 'Spider' (the shaft and support at the back of the drum). I hope I'm wrong. Does it still spin quietly or has it gotten real noisy?

#296615 Ge dishwasher model no gdt580smf0es service manual needed Thanks

Posted by olyteddy on 18 June 2014 - 09:56 PM

Are you sure it's GDT580 and not GDF580?


EDIT: Doesn't matter. Search Downloads for 'GDT5*' and there are 4 manuals or mini manuals listed.

#295409 GE washer noise model GTWN4250M1WS

Posted by olyteddy on 04 June 2014 - 12:00 AM

The mode shifter will click and clank a few times before engaging. This is normal. As the Grand Master says, you can check the health of the mode shifter by observing the little flashing light on the circuit board at the top of the motor.

#294804 WCVH6600HBB leaked randomly and then smoke came from the drum

Posted by olyteddy on 28 May 2014 - 08:25 PM

I'm about to do this for an 8 year old 'Frigidaire Style' GE Profile front loader. If I had to buy the parts they'd be over a kilo-buck. The Profile, however, has 10 year warranty on the housing and bearing and lifetime on the drum and spider...

#293375 GE side by side PSM23SGNAFBS intermitent slow beep ?

Posted by olyteddy on 11 May 2014 - 08:35 PM

I'm pretty sure there's some input to the on-board brain from the door switch(es). The 'Adaptive Defrost' system uses the number of openings and duration of opening to decide when to defrost.

Unlike conventional defrost systems that use electromechanical timers with a fixed defrost cycle time, adaptive defrost utilizes an intelligent, electronic control to determine when the defrost cycle is necessary. In order to accomplish the correct defrost cycle time, the main control board monitors the following refrigerator operations:
• Length of time the refrigerator doors were open
since the last defrost cycle.
• Length of time the compressor has run since
the last defrost cycle.
• Amount of time the defrost heaters were on in
the last defrost.



#293228 Dishwasher Door Switch 8269209 - Anyone got a picture?

Posted by olyteddy on 09 May 2014 - 08:13 PM

Pop that model number in the  Appliantology Parts Search Box  and it should get you the blow-up pictures of your DW. You'll probably have to use the whole model number though.

#293227 GTS18SBXARSS -- valve and IM?

Posted by olyteddy on 09 May 2014 - 08:05 PM

Part number is IM6 and it includes the maker and the valve. Also check that the hole the fill tube passes through is sealed. An air leak there can cause it to freeze. 

#292884 GE Dishwasher

Posted by olyteddy on 06 May 2014 - 08:27 PM

All the GEs with the 'Wobble Tower' have one of these:

Part number: AP2038495

Part number: AP2038495

#291893 GE Dryer GTDP200EF1WS

Posted by olyteddy on 26 April 2014 - 04:49 PM

Nope, the broken belt switch wouldn't even let the motor start.

Not on the newer dryers. I had my warranty guy fix one. Check the wiring diagram. The switch only stops the motor, it doesn't prevent it from starting.
