GE Washer Error Code: E42 or E45
E42 and E45 on your GE washer indicate motor-related errors. These errors can be attributed to problems with the inverter or the motor itself. They’re essentially your washer’s way of saying, “Houston, we have a motor problem.
- Clear the Error Code: When you see E42 or E45 on your display, the first step is to clear the error code. To do this, exit any service mode or diagnostic setting on your washer.
- Power Down for 30 Seconds: Once you’ve cleared the code and exited the service mode, disconnect the power to your washer. It’s crucial to leave it unplugged for at least 30 seconds. This pause allows the washer’s control system to reset.
A Note of Caution:
While it’s essential to disconnect the power to reset the control system, make sure you follow the proper sequence. Exiting the service mode before disconnecting the power is crucial. Failing to do so may potentially damage the control system.Schedule Appointment
