    Default GE washer does not turn off.

    Lost my longer post.
    Ge washer
    Model: HSWP1000M3WW
    Does not want to turn off when manually turned to off.
    Got two in today. Both tend to do this. I believe the drive pulley has scrubbed on both due to slightly raused bottom pan.
    C o uld this have caused the timer to pull too much amperage and cause damage to timer?
    Someone said they thought the motors might be at fault.

    Make sure the top of the cabinet is not weak and under a full water load is not collapsing and allowing the wash assembly to drop down and contacts the base.

    I would this is possible...I have never seen one do that and the contact(s) for the motor would be over heated and not give us an advancing motor issue like you are having.

    Someone said they thought the motors might be at fault
    9 times out of 10 the motor is at fault on these washer
    Is there any codes flashing on the motor?

    Does not want to turn off when manually turned to off

    No idea. Got it twice. Said something about contacting administrator. Maybe I tried to edit too many times.

    When checking the blinking light code, is it supposed to be in a certain cycle to check code for that particular cycle?
    Have three of the things acting up. I do not remember ever having one do this.
    So far the code seems to be correct.
    I guess I need ti check that it changes as soon as I turn it off and see if it flashes the standby code immediately.

    If the self-diagnostics haven’t detected a problem, the light will flash in one-second intervals or .5 second intervals.
    To clear the error code, turn the washer off. Then disconnect power for about 20 seconds. Next, reconnect power then open and close the lid five or more times within 12 seconds in the first 30 seconds of power-up.

    Note that after you clear the code the washer may go back to work. This may be temporary and sometimes it is a permanent repair. I recommend clearing the code and if the code reoccurs replace the part suggested.

    That is the thing. There does seem to be any error code. The light seems to flash as it is supposed to, half second interbals and whole second intervals. One for standby, the other for normal operation, if I understand this correctly.
    I did notice on the tech sheet it reads something about, if no error codes for 3,5, and 6 ( not sure about those numberd), replace the motor.
    I use a water level tube attached to the switch when I want one to agitate without water in it. The one I tinkered with today would continue to run when I let the pressure off of the water level switch. Only way to stop it was to raise the lid.
    I am pretty much convinced the motors are bad on these.
    Another thing I noticed is the metal part of two switches in the control panel were covered with rust as if it had sat outside or bern in a VERY moist area.
    Btw, I did try resetting the motor. Made no difference.
    Not sure I wil spend more time or money on these. May save a few parts.
