GE Washer error code B3

I have a GE Front Loading washer - WSSH300GWW.  It stops in the middle of the cycle - I don't know where, but when I come to the washer the start light blinks, and when I push start, it continues to blink.  I have put the washer in the diagnostic mode and error code B3 came up.  What is error code B3?  It is not on my code list.
Thanks!

Thank you for responding. I did fix the problem. This washer does not say anything about cleaning a filter inside the rubber drain boot between the washer drum and the pump. I took it appart and found a plastic filter which was clogged with lint, change, and a sock. After cleanning this out the washer works great. Thanks for responding.

SOURCE: Error code F09/Whirlpool Duet front loading washer

"F09" is an Overflow Condition error. This is usually attributed to a malfunctioning pressure switch, loose or broken connector between the Pressure Switch, Drain Pump and Central Control Unit (CCU), or...a drain pump or drain line that has become clogged.

Since this problem occurs periodically during the wash cycle, I would check your drain pump filter for obstructions first. It could be that you have debris lodged in the pump causing it not to drain properly. To access the pump:

1. Unplug the washer.
2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the screws under the bottom edge. HINT: Placing a couple of blocks of wood under the front feet of the washer will make access much easier.
3. The drain pump is located under the wash tub in the center. HINT: If you own a shop vac, remove the drain line from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum through the drain line. This will remove all residual water from the washer and make clean up later a lot less messy. Now, remove the cover on the drain pump and remove. Clean out the pump filter and check the pump impeller for obstructions.

If you do not own a shop vac, place a bunch of towels around the drain pump BEFORE you open it. There's about a gallon or so of water in the tub, drain line and pump.

Try this first, and let me know if this corrects your problem. If not, you may need to check the pressure switch and wiring. I hope this helps you.

Before you go crazy trying to solve the F2 code make sure the filter is clear. Disconnect the power cord, PLEASE. Remove the kick plate on the bottom front by removing the 3 screws below it. You will need a hex socket and extension or a torx screw driver. If there is water in the machine and it will not drain you will need a shop vac and some old towels to catch the water when you open the filter. Now, you will see the filter in front of you. Have the towels ready and vac turned on. Quickly unscrew the filter cap and stick the vac hose right in the filter to catch the water. Clean the filter cap. Did you find any socks, money or other debree ? If yes that may have been your problem. Put the filter back on and HAND tighten well. Test the machine. From now on empty all pockets before you do the laundry. You just saved yourself a big repair charge. Be proud of yourself.

If you are unable to remove the wires from inside using needle nose pliers, then my advise is to call in a professional. Taking out the inner tub on a front load machine is involved, and you open yourself up to several potential leaks as well as bearing damage.

CONTROL LOCK and Can't start the GE front load washer - WSSH300GWW


Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 5 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped
