GE Washer Error Codes

GE Washer Error Code: E48

E48 is an error code that pertains to an issue with the drive motor of your GE washer. This component is crucial for the functioning of the machine, as it’s responsible for powering the drum’s movement during the wash and spin cycles. When the washer’s control unit detects a problem with the drive motor, it generates the E48 error code as a signal for attention.

  1. Safety First: Before you embark on any troubleshooting, ensure your safety by unplugging the washer from the electrical outlet. This prevents any electrical hazards while working on the appliance.
  2. Check for Loose Wiring: In many cases, the E48 error may be triggered by loose or disconnected wiring connections to the drive motor. Examine the wires and harnesses, making sure they are securely connected to the motor. Reconnect any loose wires you find.
  3. Inspect the Wiring: Thoroughly examine the wiring for signs of damage, such as fraying or exposed wires. If any wiring is compromised, it should be replaced. Damaged wiring can not only trigger error codes but also pose safety risks.
  4. Replace the Drive Motor: If you’ve checked the wiring connections and they appear to be in good condition, and the error code persists, it’s likely that the drive motor itself is faulty. In this case, the drive motor will need to be replaced.
