    Default GE Profile Washer will not turn on

    I have a GE Profile Washer PFWS4605L0MG that will no longer turn on. It started intermittently acting up after it was moved to a new location. Then finally just died. Outlet verified to have power so from what I have seen on blogs it points to the control board WH12X10469.

    Before I spend $300+ on the control board are there any tests that can be done at the control board connector to verify that it is getting power?

    I have tried searching for a wiring diagram and a Technical Service Guide for the washer but have not been able to find either. Any help appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I have tried searching for a wiring diagram and a Technical Service Guide for the washer but have not been able to find either.
    GE doesn't put diagrams or manuals online.
    I tried to find something and came up empty as well.

    PFWS4605L0MG
    This is a newer style and I am not familiar enough with it yet to help much, sorry!

    Just had GE Profile doing basically the same thing. A little older I guess. Anyway, I thought the problem was a bad thermistor on the blower housing. The problem turned out to be the belt switch that is closed by the idler bracket when the belt is installed.

    I had eliminated the door switch before checking the belt switch.

    Btw, this switch was a pain to remove for me considering the are only two screws that hold it on and would have been a simple job, if I had used the right tools.

    Sorry, my mistake. It was a GE Profile dryer that was giving me the problem.

    To make up for my goof, I did a little searching and found this is usually a bad door lock switch.
    Part number - WH10X10006

    To make up for my goof, I did a little searching and found this is usually caused by a bed door lock switch.

    Yupper, the OP has a washer and not a dryer.
