Thank you so much for helping me figure out where to attach the other end of the air hose on my washing machine. I didn't have problems going into field test or even programing the new control board. I did all that correctly. Unfortunately I'm not the one who removed the broken control board. My boyfriend did it without me being able to watch him cuz he did it so quickly. However, I'm the one who had to put it back together. When I asked my boyfriend about the air hose, he didn't know what I was talking about. Your assistance was all I needed to fix my washing machine. I attached the other end of the air hose to the new control board like you advised. Now my washing machine works perfectly. Wish I would have thought to ask you about it sooner. Thank you so much once again! This website is really awesome!

Hi there, Ive been having issues with my washing machine which is this same model. It will randomly turn on and start pumping nothing. I've been following along with all the steps and I have error codes 8 and 19 showing.

Any ideas on how to fix?

Tub pressure chamber port needs to be cleared using a 1/16" drill bit. Follow the steps in this service bulletin:

I've completed the steps in that service bulletin. You had posted it earlier in the thread.

I started with only error code 8 then after I followed service bulletin steps I now have 8 and 19.

If you have the exact same model number, GTW460ASJ0WW, remove belt protector. Visually inspect mode shifter fork for proper positioning with clutch. Ensure clutch positions matched cycle status shown in watch windows, Spin vs. Agitate. Fork home position is in the spin cycle. Fork will be parallel to the mode shifter body.

If the control board has been replaced, ensure proper personality has been programmed in control. Enter service mode and use test 2 to verify personality ID is 6

In service mode, run spin test 14. The Test sequence is:

1-Water spray (Child safety routine)

2-Lid will lock (Click) If no Click, make sure lid lock harness connections are fully seated. If fully seated, replace lid lock.

3-Basket will start to spin. If Mode Shifter is not in spin state, it will shift to spin. It takes approximately 10 seconds to complete shift. If Mode Shifter is already in the Spin state, the basket will start to spin according to the spin test profile. If an error displays within 10 seconds, ensure mode shifter harness connections are fully seated. Ensure harness continuity from control board to mode shifter. If good and fully seated, replace the Mode Shifter.

4- If drive motor doesn’t turn after 10 seconds, check motor harness connections. Ensure harness continuity from control board to drive motor. If good and fully seated, replace drive motor.

5- If the motor spins and stops, check the speed sensor connection. Ensure harness continuity from control board to drive motor. If good and connectors are fully seated, replace speed sensor.

The Spin Test Profile is:

0-140 RPM and then dwells at 140 RPM for 90 seconds.

Accelerates to 450 RPM. Time to ramp up to 450 and dwell time at 450 is a total of 4 seconds.

Spin to terminal speed (either 700 or 800 RPM depending on model) and will remain at terminal speed until spin test times out. Entire sequence takes 4 minutes.

I just double checked and mine is actually model # GTW460ASJ2WW. Will that make a difference in the steps you provided above?

I dont think I've programmed it correctly. When I enter service mode all they lights are blinking. I turn the knob to show 6 on the binary chart then what do i do? I've been just pressing and holding start. Is this correct?

No it's the same code but you're missing a step. Once Field Service Mode has been entered, all LEDs will turn off for about 3 seconds then all the all cycle status LEDs will be blinking. Rotate the cycle selection knob clockwise to Test #2

Press Start to enter the test. The personality ID programmed into the control will be displayed. PC 6:

Press and hold start for 3 seconds to exit service mode.

Oh that did it. I had the wrong personality programmed (I had in install a new control board).

I was able to run a cycle successfully! With that being said I still have error codes 8 and 19 showing when I check. Should I be concerned?
