Why Doesn’t My GE Washing Machine Work At All

If your GE washer is not responding, start by ruling out the obvious–is it unplugged? Did the circuit break? You can test whether the circuit trip is taking place by plugging a hairdryer to the outlet. If the hair dryer does not work, the wiring within the outlet could be the cause. Make an electrician fix the electrical outlet. The issue with the wiring may be in the washing machine if the hair dryer fails to function. Here are the steps you can take to test the wiring in your GE washer:

  1. Unplug the GE washer. Examine the power cord for damage. Replace the power cord in the event that it’s damaged.
  2. Check the wire connections to the main control board or timer. Connect any loose wires.
  3. Check the wiring connections between the primary control board (GE washer) and the user interface board. Connect any loose wires to user interface. It is possible to replace either the main control board or the user interface board provided that the wiring connections are in good order.

Before replacing any control components, it’s recommended to get a GE service technician look over the GE washing machines control boards as well as the user interface boards. The testing of the controls generally requires live voltage checks. Because these tests are dangerous, we don’t recommend conducting the live voltage test with your GE washer.

Replace the GE washer main controller board: The main electronic control board (also known as the mother board) controls the execution and timing of the washer’s component functions. It regulates the fill valves, the drive motor and the drain pump. Change the GE washer timer: The timer -often referred to as a cycle selector is the dial you use to set the cycle on the GE washing machine using mechanical controls. The timer causes the washer to cycle through its cycles beginning with filling up and ending with a final spin. If the timer fails to move the washer throughout its cycle, replace it.

Replace the GE washer’s user interface board: The user interface board has buttons that you use to start the washing cycle. Replace the user interface board if one or more of the buttons don’t function. A GE washing machine that’s not functioning can be frustrating and overwhelming.
