GE washer timers wire diagram model numbers

5 posts in this topic

First let me say this is both a story of learning and enlightment plus a question of how to know you have the right wire diagram for the unit you are working on.

Ok I have a Ge washer that the timer was stripped out on, (knob indentions) I had picked up a salvage unit with what I thought was a match for the timer.  The diagram for the unit I want to repair  has 175D22750g396.  How can we know what models that covers? 

 

I made a assumption and well spent lots of time exploring the inner working of the timer, just to discover that GE Changed up a few things inside.  I went back to my salvage unit and pulled the print (I know should have done this first) hind sight is 20/20.  That sheet diagram same first numbers but last three was 313 .

 

For enlightment to all Grashoppers and learning techs, Ge timers look the same but they have changed.

There is jumper on the unit I'm trying to fix ,  between r23 and r18,  the other timer was internally jumpeed between R23, and R17, which is why the cold solonoid valve would not ever shut off.

 

Was not all a waste, I learned I could taKe it apart, got it put backed together and learned a valuable lesson.  It's not easy to put back together, it's eaiser to get a new part.

 

I would like to have a computer copy of these documents if you have them.  I took some pics on evernote files, but blurry.

GE mini-manual numbers are usually 31-xxxxx

OR post your Dryer model numbers

OR Timer part numbers

  There's no "standard" timer for washers of any manufacturers. There are lots of variations and thus lots of different part numbers. For GE wiring diagrams, your better off looking up the pub number which as stated is 31-xxxxx. I don't think you can really determine what diagram goes with which washer models but you can determine which wiring pub you would need for a specific model number washer by looking up the parts lists for the specific washer model. GE wiring pubs can be difficult to find. The one you have seems to be a very recent one.

The timer can differ even among the same base model. A cohort was working on a GE 4170 series washer that we didn't have the whole model number for (stupid idea GE...putting the model number on a paper sticker, just under the lid!) and he had to try several timers until we found one that didn't have the drain pump running continuously.
