New style GE top slosher motor/Inverter notes
I had to write this down and it will be handy to know on those washers. GE has come up with a new washer design. The motor has an inverter attached to the top of it. To Reset the Inverter Board: Push the timer knob in so the washer is idle. Unplug the machine for one minute. Plug back in and raise and lower the lid six times within 12 seconds.
After resetting the inverter board, put the machine in a spin cycle and see if it runs. If not, check for a green blinking light on the inverter board. It will flash failure codes according to the picture above. If no light you probably have a blown fuse built into the neutral side of the harness on the white/red wire.
I have photos of the repair: Here is the suspect
