Whole neighborhood had a freak flash flood. My basement took 7 inches of water. Got the hot water heater working today; the furnace and central AC are fine.
I have a GE "laundry center" -- it's a single unit with just one plug. The dryer is on top -- that's working fine. The washer is a top loader.
I didn't realize you're not supposed to try running the washer without making sure everything is dry. Maybe that caused some damage. The flood was on Sunday evening. We bought a sump pump Monday morning, and by Monday afternoon, the sump pump's job was complete and we started using squeegee and shovel to remove the mud. I tried to run the washer on Tuesday. Initially it seemed to be working fine, but then it's as though its little brain is addled.
When I turn it on, the light comes on, and it does its usual prelude of providing a little bit of water to the tub in a couple little squirts. Then it sits and thinks for a moment, as usual. Then nothing happens. It just sits there until you take pity on it and turn it off.
None of the cycles works -- not even the spin-only cycle. It drains but doesn't spin.
Today (Wednesday) we unplugged it from the wall, took off the front with a putty knife, and pointed a fan at it for half a day. That didn't help. Then we cleaned what we could see, using vinegar solution and an old toothbrush. Then we pointed the fan at it again for several hours. It still didn't fill the tub; and it didn't try to agitate.
Also we tried doing the "reset" procedure (open and close lid multiple times).
Local repair people are booked for a month. I'd like to try to work through some diagnostics.
I don't know how to see error codes. Where does one see error codes?
