Customer: replied 5 years ago.

I have GE FRONT LOAD WASHER, model WHDVH626FWW

when start it just run about a minute then stop , timing keep running out.

They told me to replace the control board, i did, but i 'm not able to get it in the mode to program the new board, what can i do .

Expert:  Bob L Your Appl Pal replied 5 years ago.

Note:

The replacement control board will always enter

into test mode t01 on initial power-up.

If replacing the control board, the washer will

not function until the replacement control board

has been programmed.

Tabs

Programming the Control Board

To program the replacement control board:

Reconnect power to the washer. (The display

will now show "---", which means no model has

been selected.)

Rotate the cycle knob until the correct model

number is XXXXX:

Select 1 for model WHDVH626F

Select 2 for model WCVH6260F

Select 3 for model WBVH6240F

Press and hold the Start key for 3 seconds (or

until a second beep is sounded).

Press the Power key to reset the control.

Note: If an error is made in programming the

control, enter test mode and select t01. Then repeat

steps 2 thru 4.

is there any way to test to know the board working properly. thanks
Expert:  Bob L Your Appl Pal replied 5 years ago.

The washer control has a service test mode that can be utilized by the service technician in order to test

critical components and to access error codes. This test mode will help the service technician to quickly

identify failed or improper operation of washer components.

Caution: Testing is accomplished through built-in test procedures. Unplugging components for testing can

damage component connections.

Machine must be in idle mode before entering test. Idle mode occurs when the washer has completed a

cycle. If the cycle is interrupted, the washer will drain water when the power is re-applied. The water level

switch must reset BEFORE the test mode can be entered. If water remains in the washer, manually drain the

washer to reset the water level switch. A failed water level switch can cause an inability to enter the test

mode.

Test Mode Description

t01 Model ID Verifi es (or sets on new board) the proper model id

t02 Error Codes Lists up to 10 control-detected problems

t03 Software ID Verifies using latest control-EEPROM-inverter

software

t04 LED Illumination and Button Test Verifi es that all displays and buttons work

t05 Pump Test Operates pump

t06 Pressure Switch Test Fills to all 3 fi ll levels, then pumps out water

t07 Thermistor/Heater Test Verifi es that both the thermistor and heater work

t08 Hot Water Test Verifi es hot water valve works

t09 Cold Water Test Verifi es cold water valve works

t10 Tumble Test Verifi es washer tumbles (i.e. wash cycle)

t11 Spin Test Verifi es washer spins

t12 Dispenser Test Verifi es dispenser fi ll works-for all four fi ll modes

t13 EOL Test Performs factory end-of-line test sequence

t14 Spin Test Verifi es washer spin speeds

(Continued Next Page)

To enter the test mode: To exit the test mode:

Press power button to clear any current cycles.

Note: The display must be blank to proceed.

Disconnect the power for 30 seconds.

Reconnect power and within 30 seconds of

reconnecting power:

Press signal button.

Press delay start button.

Press signal button.

Press delay start button. (The door will lock,

then will display t01.)

Note: A washer left in the test mode will exit the test

mode and unlock the door after a period of 2 hours.

Press signal button.

Press delay start button.

Press signal button.

Press delay start button.

Note: Attempting to exit the service mode by

disconnecting the power will result in a locked

washer.
