Question about GE WBVH6240F Front Load Washer
I have checked the water lines, and cleaned out the filter..a cycle did run, sort of, but left water in the bottom. how do i access the test cycle on this washer? I believe it may just be stuck in a cycle, as it stops and the button blinks. then when pushed it starts again...well, it used to...now, nothing...
I am having the same issue. I have cleaned out the filter and had the pump replaced once already. I have been checking the drain/filter every time I use the washer and quite a bit of water comes out (nothing in the filter), often very soapy and if I let it stand overnight very stinky. I can get my finger into the pump and it does not appear to be frozen.

all you need to do is clean the filter. you can get to it by unscrewing the front screws at the bottom to remove the bottom panel. Unscrew the filter but be ready to have something to catch the water overflow. Coins did it for us. There was not much lint. Hope this helps.
Cheerup and be happy always

You have to clean-out your inlet hoses; the hose/s external of machine, the screens. You may not be getting sufficient water.
Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean(ref manual). There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

The solution is pretty simple. there is a filter located right before the water pump.
* Remove the lower panel (lower as if you were looking at the front of the machine)
* Remove the 3 screws (it is easy if you have the lower drawer unit .. you will have to 'get low' if you don;t have it)
* You will see a 3" cap right facing you (in the center)
* GET A POT. and place it below the cap (foul water will come out when you remove the cap)
* remove the cap (finger tight)
* I found coins, hair, lint, dollar bills .. etc (about the size of a roll of cookie dough)
* Take CLEAN water and dump it into the washing machine (this will clean out the tube/hose)
* replace cap
* run machine BEFORE you put the cover back on (make sure it doesn;t leak)
* replace cover/screws
