GE Hydro Wave washer GTWN4250M won't spin or agitate

07 April 2014 - 05:11 PM

My GE Hydro Wave washer has stopped spinning or agitating. Following earlier advice I checked error codes & I'm getting 3 flashes indicating corrupted software. After multiple resets still no improvement.

3 flashes means corrupted software (in the motor board?) & motor replacement is recommended.


As I've just 3 weeks ago replaced the wave shifter and tub bearing at a cost of $200+ and the motor costs around $262 I'm reluctant to invest the money in my old washer. (And after replacing the shifter the washer has started making the loud noises the old shifter made...do I need to add that to the list of new parts?)


I've read reports that this washer seems to be a lemon, frequently breaking down  (naturally after the warranty expired). 

So I'm asking:

1 is there ANY other possibility that it's not the motor but another (less expensive) part ? 

2 What can I do about the loud noise while spinning (when it does?)

3 What brands are generally better and more reliable than GE models? What brands should be avoided?


Any advice is appreciated.


Whirlpool ice maker problem

08 February 2014 - 08:21 PM

Hi, I have a Whirlpool GB2FHDXWB02 refrigerator. Ice was building up on the freezer floor and I fixed that today by removing the freezer back panel and melting the ice with a hairdryer and clearing out the drain. I think door hadn't been closed tight and moist air entered and froze on condenser and drain pan.

After several hours of running it seems fine, nice and cold in freezer compartment.

However I'm not getting any water into the ice maker. I had taken the ice maker out during the repair & replaced it. I did not remove the water lines or shut off the water to the ice maker during the repair. Electrical connection seems tight.

Any clue what I may have done wrong?
