Question about GE Energy Star WCVH6260F Front Load Washer
Three times now, I have had shirts (my husband's) rip to pieces in the washer - always made of light weight cool max type of fabric. Why would this happen? Repairman came once and said all looked fine. They are coming again next week after the third shirt was ruined. Thank goodness for the extended warranty, though I don't expect a solution. The store I bought it at indicated if I get no help from GE this time to contact them. I also have the problem where it won't finish a cycle - clearing out the hose at the bottom of the washer fixes this issue, but what a huge hassle. My opinion is there is a very big design flaw with this washer.
I also have a 2007 GE front load washer that is both ripping clothes and the gasket has ripped twice! Apparently this is a common issue with these models. I called GE and told them (again) about the complaint and insisted that I and a couple servicemen had determined it was a design flaw. They opened a case# for me and forwarded me to their Consumer Relations department to address this. I haven't received any compensation yet, but if enough people call GE and open cases with similar designs and the same problem, then GE will not be able to ignore it and perhaps a recall will be done. Their consumer relations number is 800-386-1215.

We had our gasket tear as well. Called 6 different online vendors to find this part, WH08X10022, and finally found it at helpfulitem.com. I spoke with Mike who was great in helping me find the part and shipped out very quickly, from Lubbock, TX. to northern Arkansas. Replacement of the part took approximately 30 minutes and now we're back to washing clothes.
I do believe we'll be ordering a spare part just to keep on hand. With four kids, it is quite possible that we'll have it ripped again.
