The wiring diagram 175D2750G228 for GE Profile washing machine model
WPRB8050 is wrong. The contacts for the water level switch WH12X10227
are shown as normally open when they should be closed.
I would like to invite the following to respond in their defense:
1. GE tech support for refusing to answer my question regarding this
inconsistency because I did not have an account with them. They have
wasted several hours of my time researching this inconsistency on my
own when it was their error for which they are responsible for.
2. The engineer who approved the wiring diagram. Unless he can prove
otherwise he seems to be an idiot.
Ours is a 'changeoveer' contact. Until the washer fill with water
(The level being set by the water level switch) power is not switched
from the water filling circuts to the drive motor circuit. The input
wire the switch is marked V, the wire to the pump circuit is marked P
and noted 'empty', the wire to the motor circuits is T and noted
When you read (better yet, "understand") the diagram you'll probably see
that the switch position is a function of the amount water in the tub.
Makes sense doesn't it---don't want the machine working until the tub is at
the desired water level. Even if there is an error on the schematic
(happens all the time-drawings are revised many times to correct for
changes, errors etc.) I don't see how that makes the engineer an
idiot---look in the mirror if you want to see one.
