SOURCE: Where is the pump filter on a front loading ge

The filter (or clean out trap) is located on the drain pump. To access, just follow these steps:

1. Unplug the washer while servicing inside the unit.

2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the screws under the bottom edge of the panel. HINT: Use a couple of blocks of wood to prop up the front feet of the washer to gain better access to the screws. Once the screws are removed the panel should drop down, and then pull off. If the panel becomes stuck, a slight tap on either side will dislodge it.

3. Locate the drain pump. It will be located directly under the wash tub (it is the only pump this washer has).

4. There is an access removal cover on the pump that can be removed to clean out the trap. BEFORE doing this, it is strongly recommended that you remove all residual water from the wash tub & drain line or you will have about a gallon or so inside your washer and on the floor to clean up.

5. Here’s a helpful way of quickly removing the residual water. If you own a wet/dry shop vac, remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum with the shop vac. This will empty the wash tub, pump and drain lines. If you don’t own a shop vac, grab a bunch of old towels and open the access on the pump slowly so that it comes out at a trickle. Allow the towels to soak up the majority of the water. Close the access and stop the water if you need to get additional towels.

6. Open the pump access and remove once you have all the water drained. Check the drain pump for foreign objects and debris. Check the pump impeller and make sure there’s nothing caught in it. Items as small as toothpicks or cotton swabs have been known to stop this pump from working.

7. Clean out the pump thoroughly and reinstall the access cover. Make sure the cover is snug, but do not over tighten.

8. Place the drain hose back in the standpipe.

For reference, you can view some excellent exploded view diagrams of your washer at If you have any questions about this procedure, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

My front load GE washer is filling with water and draining but doesnt spin, exept for the first two spins when started

it isnt the door lock or it would not work on the first 2 spin cycles and unless you have huge out of balance loads the door(not lid as lids are only on top loaders) interlock probably isn't at fault. i would cleanout the tub to pump trap inspect the pump for blockage and flush the discharge hose. it doesn't cost a penny to do this and has fixed many front loaders with the same problem

A repair man told me I needed to replace the hinge and seal on my GE Washing Machine Model# WCVH6260FWW. He said it would cost $500. Is this accurate???

That price is way out of line. The hinge cost about $90 and the seal $97. The typical labor rate would be about $125. That is based at $60 per hour. Call a more reputable company.
Here is a link of a similar door seal installation

Will not spin. fills up with water but takes a long time to drain. this seems consistent through all modes of operation

The most likely cause of this problem is due to the filter basket being clogged and preventing the water from draining properly. You will need to check the filter basket which is located underneath the washer for obstructions. Don't be surprised if you find lots of change and other foreign objects. To check, remove the bottom panel from the front of the washer with a philips head screwdriver (there are 3 screws). Once you have the panel off, you will find a cap on your right hand side. Don't worry, it's quite easy to spot. Turn the cap counterclockwise to remove. Make sure you have small container on hand as a few pints of water will drain out. Pull the filter basket out and clean. Wipe off the gasket on the filter and receptacle with a clean rag and replace. Thereafter, do this every 6-9 months as a preventative and more often if the problem repeats. You won't find this procedure mentioned anwhere in your owners manual, but it certainly should have been and has been addressed for the newer GE frontloaders. In fact, the new washers have an access panel to make getting to the basket filter easy.

GE wcvh6260fww front load washer won't start. pump makes a noise. The trap had some stuff in it. Cleaned that out. Cleaned the hose behind it out.Still just makes a noise at the pump when I turn it back...

need to check hose that comes off the bottom of the outer tub to pump. if there is trash still in the rubber hose then pump thinks it still needs to pump out.
