Question about GE WBVH6240F Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Suds in the floor...

We hooked up a GE front load washer model wbvh6240. It had never been used but it was sitting on the "showroom" floor for awhile and was in storage for about 6 months after we purchased it. Anyways, the problem we are having is that suds keep appearing in the floor behind the washer. Where are they coming from? There's very little water mostly just suds. It usually happens after I've washed 2 -3 loads of clothes in a row. The suds are in the floor behind the washer towards the left side. I have seen a few suds near a hole that has a plastic cap over it on the back of the washer. I don't know what that hole is for and I've only noticed suds there once. Can anyone help me? We just built a new house so this may be a drain issue and not related to the actual washer. I'd hate to have the builder knock a hole in the wall if it is actually the washer : )

WBVH6240FWW GE FRONT LOAD control counts dow to 9 mins then jumps back to 11 mins in rinse and drain. I replaced the control. What else could cause this problem


Too much soap generally causes it to change time. Soap causes motor overload. The control detect over amping and declares a suds error. All machines have this built in though many do not display the error. Items between baskets can also trigger this.

My question is; the washer,model,wbvh6240 has any filter


No , all new front loads have a self cleaning filter. Therefore nothing needs to be emptied or clean. The little trap door in front of the washer is to drain it in case of a power failure when the washer is full of water. .

Door gasket leaking


My GE washer model wcvh6400j0ww was leaking too. The repair person thought the same thing the gasket. It turned out to be the water in-let pipe (WH41X10118 and you will need seal WH41X10119) and not the gasket. He ordered the gasket and took machine apart to replace and found cracked pipe. Take your machines front off and make sure it is the gasket leaking. Good Luck,

WBVH6240 Spin problem. Excessive vibration during spin. Loud noise when reaching top spin speed.


There are little items called "dogs" that keep the drum in balance. You can view a diagram of the machine and parts at partselect . com.
Bad bearings could also due this, but you would see oil/grease on the floor and chunks of the couple laying around. The dogs stay in place but will wear out.

GE front loading washer WBVH6240 leaks during fill cycle..solutions??


I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old
man who has been making his own repairs for about
50 years. Therefore the washer ID doesn't mean
much to me. It's been about 55 years since I had
experience with front load washers. However I can
suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where
they have very good trouble shooting and repair
information on front loaders. I think you'll find what
you need there. Good luck with it.

Replace rubber gasket


Replace the machine with a top loader and you'll never have a leaking gasket again! Worked at National Linen for a while and the floors had drains in them and were always wet! Needless to say the pros have the same problem you do! ;)
