Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer
My washer's pump is running and water still in washer then the door unlocks and then lock trying to pump water again. If I push stop the pump still runs?
OK, so I had no luck finding any information on the WSXH208A. I knew this problem was possibly related to a clogged filter because of the responses related to other machines, but where the heck is the filter on this model...not easily found. Finally, after some persistence, I found it. The filter is inside the black rubber piece that attaches the drum to the pump. It is a small clear plastice piece with holes in it located inside the black rubber piece. Detach the black rubber piece from it's 3 connections...1 to the bottom of the drum (unscrew the tightening screw at the top metal wire to loosen the connection), 1 connection to the pump and one other connection coming from the top somewher (both of these are connected with press-grip clasp type things). Take the entire black rubber piece out (make sure to have plenty of towels layed out and a pan to catch the water if you can. My pan didn't catch much, but the towels soaked it up anyway. Pull the filter out from inside the black rubber piece once disconnected. I actually had a dollar bill wrapped around the inside of my filter, completely blocking it. Once the filter is cleared, put everything back together. Make sure all connections are on tight to prevent any leaks. Hope this works for you...I was happy to fix it myself and avoid the costly repair-man!

My daughter had the same problem for about two years. A repair man came out and told her to call the company and tell them she wanted it fixed under a recall. She said the computer board had to be replaced and it was recalled due to a flaw in the machine. The service man came back again after she called, and he fixed it for free.

The door will remained locked while draining water. If during installation the washer was plugged in and turned on without water hoses attached, the washer may attempt to drain for 8 minutes before the door unlocks. Let the washer run until the door unlocks. Do not turn off the washer or unplug the washer.
Does water remain in the washer after the final spin?
If water remains in the washer after the final spin, then the door will not unlock. Select Drain/Spin or Spin Only to remove any remaining water from the washer. The door should unlock at the end of the cycle. For models that have Rinse/Drain & Spin, push the Extra Rinse button to turn off the rinse to remove excess water.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light on?
If the Add A Garment light is on, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed once. Pressing the Start button will restart the washer at the same point where it left off in the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light off?
If the Add A Garment light is off, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed twice. The door will not immediately unlock while the cycle is running due to a possible high-water level in the washer, high-water temperature, tumbling or spinning. It may take up to five minutes for the washer to stop spinning and draining before the door will unlock. You will hear the door click when it unlocks.
Trying to gain access into a locked door can be a bit frustrating. Upon researching your question I found some links that may help you unlock your washer door. I attached all links below. I hope this helps!
