Inverter Motor Fuse Eliminated from GE Hydrowave Top-Load Washers

Samurai Appliance Repair Man

2,789 views

From the GE Tech bulletin on this:

New variable speed inverter motors no longer

require the in-line fuse. When replacing an

older Hydrowave inverter motor with the new

inverter motor, the in-line fuse must be

removed from the washer harness. Failure to

remove this fuse link will cause the fuse link to

fail due to the higher inrush current of the new

motor design.

Replacement motors will include a jumper wire

and 2 wire splices to remove the in-line fuse.
