Hi,

That's not your model number, that's a part number.

Your model number will start with 3 or 4 alphabets first. Like GTW or GTWN, etc.

Click here: Appliance Parts

Then you will see a link that says: How to find a model number.

So we got it apart. The belt is intact. So no easy fix there. Pulled the motor out. It turns freely by hand but wont turn when running the washer in a cycle (with the motor installed of course).
Just need to prove if its a motor or the timer control causing the problem.

Thanks,

Do you hear any sound at all when the motor should be running in agitate and spin?

Do you get any flashing LED lights (error codes) on the motor?

Shawn has a good webpage that explains this issue and what to check for here: HydroWave GE Washer Repair Guide

Here's the motor for your model:
GE WH20X10093 Motor and Inverter Asm

Bought a new washer on sale?

He didn't want to buy a new motor to fix it?
