My GE Top Loading Profile Washer doesn't spin unless I

Customer Question
My GE Top Loading...

My GE Top Loading Profile Washer doesn't spin unless I unplug it, wait a few minutes, and plug it back in prior to washing a load of clothes. Sometimes I have to use the rinse cycle to get the machine to spin after washing a load. The pump has been replaced because it wouldn't empty properly. The lid shuts properly and seems to stop everything when raised.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I think it is about seven years old. The tag is unreadable so I can't tell you the model number.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If I can.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I am beginning to suspect some kind of "mother board" or chip may be causing the issue.

You will need to have the motor control board replaced in order to fix this.
