    It an all electric timer. Problem is the unit is decieding it out of balance and constantly trying to rebalance it. I bet the clothes are wet when you take them out too.

    ..05.04.09 The problem is that the washer cannot balance a load. I was told by warranty repair person that GE tells them to advise customers to load only like items, eg. towels, or nylon underwear, or sheets, but not to mix loads and to load 3/4 full. (I assume because of the balance problem.) A friend had the same washer and had the same problem. The balance problem causes washer to "walk" and "wobble" and prevents fast spin so that the clothes are never "spun dry" before placing in the dryer. I have spent as much as 4 hours to complete a stain wash cycle that should only take 2 hours 56minutes. Plus, I had to babysit the washer to maker sure it did not "walk" into my water hoses and burst them. I don't believe this problem is fixable in this unit.

    I am now beginning the process to get satisfaction through replacement or upgrade, dcb texas

The clock timer might be faulty.Need to Replace it.Since the machine is new, it must be under warranty and can be subjected to replacement.Problems with clock timers is common with any washer.Its better when detected early like in this case.Good luck.Please do post your comments.

GE front loading washer - WBVH6240FWW


Most modern front loading machines have a ESTIMATED time display, this time can change based on the inputs from different sensors and water temperature. So this should be normal.
