Question about General Electric WCVH6400J Front Load Stacked Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

General electric washer won't start

I have a fairly new washer and dryer(about 1 and 1/2 years old). A few weeks ago the washer stopped ,midcycle and didn't spin. Since then ,every time I push start it flashes all the cycles together and won't turn on at all. Since it's an electrical panal,I've been told it could cost $200.00-$300.00 to get a new one! Is there an easy solution to this and perhaps not that costly?

My dryer bips Problem with the Maytag Neptune MDE5500AZW, SER N 73252332JX Electric Dryer. It bips all the time. Some times don't want to start. Please let me know what is the problem. Thanks! Reema...


Mine does the same thing (it's doing it right now!). I had it looked at and they said I have to replace the mother board. It's going to cost me $300! It stops beeping and works normally most of the time. When the house is humid, it starts beeping again.
Maytag is total garbage. Our Maytag fridge had to have a new compressor installed after only a few years. Our washer and dryer are only a few years old as well. Never buying Maytag again.

F01 - There may be an internal problem with the control, attempt a Hard Reset.

Hard Reset - In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:

* Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
* Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
* Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display.
* Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.

The F01 generally indicates a failed electronic machine control board.
This error code can sometimes be caused by a glitch or power surge through the electrical lines.
You may be able to clear this code by unplugging the washer for 5 minutes.
If the code returns after plugging the washer back in, then the electronic machine control board will need to be replaced.

The procedure for accessing and replacing this control board is shown in this image...

Be sure to unplug the washer before accessing internal components.
When you access the control board, I recommend transferring the wires from the old control board to the new replacement control board one connection at a time.
Once you have all of the wires transferred, remove the old control board and mount the new control board in the washer.
Reassemble and test the washer.

The "F01" error code indicates a communication error between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the EEPROM onboard the CCU.
The "F01" can also be displayed if the onboard "Pump Driver" fails to activate.
Generally in order to correct this failure will require replacing the CCU.
There is no way to test and verify if the control board has failed.
The technical data sheet basically states to replace the CCU.

Dryer louder than used to be, does it need service?


The belt may be worn and squealing because it is slipping.  When it warms up it stops slipping.  It will have to be replaced soon. A worn bearing on a support wheel could also cause intermittent noise.

Dryer stopped 1/2 way through cycle-hit start, drum won't turn


if the unit is sounding like it is struggling to start then you most likely have a bad bearing in the motor. they will usually get noisy and the become worse and louder. the unit also will run for awhile and then stop with the clothes not dry, if you try to start it it will go but will stop again shortly later.
if this unit is fairly old, like more then 10 years, you might want to look at the price of a new unit versus replacing the motor. the motor could cost you about 100-120 bucks if you put it in yourself and another 100 bucks if you pay someone to put it in for you. most new dryers will cost about 250-300 bucks, so the choice is up to you.
