Im assuming you mean WSSH instead of WSHH. So it could be something as simple as the belt (unlikely) or more likely a control board, possibly the motor. Lots of possibilities. Any error codes?

Yes WSSH, no digital display on this model. Belt is fine, pulley is good. Washer will fill then nothing, if I turn selector to spin it will drain so discharge pump is working.

So I would like to know how to check the motor and/or the control board

Thanks Ethan, will try that - it will have to wait a few days busy with other things and have enough clean clothes

I would say it is the speed sensor that is in the motor. The IC BOARD  is not reading the motor rpm.

This is GE front load washer that Frigidaire built for GE. Take the bottom panel off. There should be a tech sheet down there. That should help.  These had bad door switches and motor control boards. Check and make sure the basket moves freely and check to see if the belt is on. I have seen a few through the years where the drive pulley comes loose and the belt comes off.  If you hear the motor whining but no tub movement my bet is the belt came off.

Hello David, the washer will fill then make a humming noise as if it wants to go to the next cycle (wash) but motor does not start. if I put the selector knob on spin it will drain but not spin. the motor will turn if I spin it and the drum will turn freely it just won't progress to a wash cycle. Door switch is OK, I did try to get a reading off the motor pins but they were all over the place leading me to think it's the motor.

Yeah, that's a tough call.  Like throwing darts on the board. Maybe you can try it first and if it's not return it?

Well it wasn't the motor, replaced that still the same issue. Could it be the motor inverter board? Is there a simple way to test this?

Unfortunately the tech sheet doesn’t provide us with much more information on the motor control board. But there’s also definitely a chance that the door lock is bad, they’ll keep the tub from spinning

Like I said before it is like throwing darts at a board.  Yes there is a good chance it's the inverter (motor control board)
