GE WWSE5240G1WW Washer; no agitate or spin and no light

Customer Question

GE WWSE5240G1WW Washer; no agitate or spin and no green light flashing on circuit bd. atop motor. Suspect control bd. Would like to place a jumper, 120 VAC to motor directly to be sure motor runs with applied voltage. Have followed motor reset protocol. Also have unplugged/replugged gang wire connectors at motor circuit bd.
Can 120VAC be jumpered to motor for momentary test? Measured voltage at 5 wire gang plug at motor cir. bd. shows ~52 VAC on all 5 bd. stubs.

If the light isn’t blinking then the fuse is most likely blown. The fuse is inline the wires under tape on the right side of the washer. The motor could have caused the fuse to blow after all that is why the fuse is there but most of the time replacing the fuse will repair the washer. If not you have a bad motor. Here is a link to the fuse part number WH49X10055

It's the red & white wire with black shrink wrap, just thought I should clarify.
