is this the same thing? thermal or harness fuse?
yes its the harness fuse,heres how to open the front, about 2" in from each side between the top and the front panel there are clip you need to push up with a putty knife.




once that is off you can access the thermal fuse, its in the wiring running down the side of the washer in the front, (right) you will need to unplug the washer first, heres a link to the part, this also has instructions, thanks Bryan

Hi Bryan ! Finally, I replaced the thermal fuse, but , still, it doesn't spin nor

agitate. What's my next move ?

ok, thats unusual, ok, you need to check the lid switch, can you resend the model # ? I seem to have lost it, thanks Bryan
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
model number is : wcsr 2090g4ww GE brand
this is the lid switch, you would need to bypass this and see if it runs, unfortunately you'll need to cut the wires to bypass it is no plug on this particular one try that and see if it runs then if not you probably have a bad control board which is a lot of money on this machine and you may want to replace it at that point the machine that is, let me know if the lid switch is the problem thanks, Bryan
