Hey All!

Well I just went through the whole registration process, I've never heard of paying $5 to join a forum, but I'm hoping the information I get here will be WELL worth that fee. I have a GE Front Loading Washer model: WCVH6260FWW. About a week ago it just stopped spinning. I did some research and found with the machine and model that when this happens it's one of two things.

A) Clogged internal filter.

B) Faulty inverter board.

I took apart the bottom of the washing machine and cleaned the filter myself. It wasn't too bad, there was not that much muck in there. So I was leaning toward a faulty inverter board. The main reason is we only use the machine once a week and it's only about two years old, just past the warranty of course. ;) Turns out on this model the inverter boards are notoriously known for going bad. Why GE wouldn't just replace these boards free of charge is beyond me, but I've lived long enough to know that I shouldn't really be surprised.

I called a repair service to fix it, four days later they stopped by. He said yeah it was the inverter board, gave me a bill for $110.00 to confirm that, and advised me it'd be $216.86 to buy a new one, and that their next appointment was five days from then, and another $50.00 to install it. :yikes:THREE HUNDRED SEVENTY SIX DOLLARS AND EIGHTY SIX CENTS TO FIX A BRAND NEW F*KING WASHER! :yikes:  I at least had some sense and found the part online for $105.00 BRAND NEW, imagine that! :cool:

Well I begrudge paying this $50! I've heard it's really easy to replace the inverter, but I have no idea where to start. I'm hoping someone can tell me where the inverter is located and how to replace it, or at least point me in the right direction. The inverter part number is WH12X10335. Make me a believer!

OK good news... I got the inverter board in and it appears to be working!! However as dumb as it sounds, the bottom panel that I took off is giving me the most problems. I line it back up to screw the three screws back in and I can't get the holes to line up. If I push up REALLY hard I can almost get them lined up but not quite. Anyone have a trick to help me out? The only thing I'm thinking may work is if I put a brick under the lip of it and use the weight of the washer to force the holes to line up. But I don't have a brick handy and I don't think it should be that hard. I'm all ears for suggestions!

I think what the last two guys are saying is.......Welcome to our world.

There's no trick that I know of, but I've had the same problem many times myself.

HahHAha! OK then just wondered if I was missing the boat on something. Looks like I'll be checking out that brick idea ;)
