Question about GE Energy Star WCVH6260F Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Will not spin on any cycle but sounds as if it is running.

This happens now and then, by the time I get someone to come take a look at it a day or two later the problem usually goes away. But when I need it the most, usually on weekends I sometimes have to go to a laundromat because my clothes sit inside the washer sopping wet without get washed. The door remains locked too. I noticed this time it happened when I stopped the cycle midway to add some more clothes. But now I keep trying to restart and the same problem resumes. No spinning just the sound of the machine going.

You have a bad computer board. Its gonna cost about $300 bucks to fix. I had the same problem and guy came, told me what was wrong and had a computer board in his truck replaced it in about 15 minutes and wacked me with $300 dollar bill. It works fine now. the kicker is the stupid washer was 13 months old, 1 month past warranty.
Hope this helps.

    I have told the Geek Squad this for a year. There are cycles that have not worked for that enitre year. Other parts are replaced, but the computer board still remains. I am told to just deal with it.. if I wanted to just DEAL with it I never would have bought the extended warranty!

Hi, I own a Whirlpool Thin Twin Model# LT5000XSN1. I bought it used from a CRAPPY dealer (worst mistake EVER), since day one, we have had an issue with the spin cycle. The cycle will agitate then when the...

This sounds like a classic clogged empty pump issue. The empty cycle is timed and then it steps on to the spin cycle. The machine won't spin if there is still water in the bottom of the drum. When you reset it to a spin cycle again, you are making it run through the empty cycle again, finally getting rid of the water that the clogged filter could not evacuate on the first attempt.

You need to clean the empty pump filter. Now... Where is the filter???? Hmmmm... not sure. It MAY be behind a little panel in the front of the machine near the bottom. I can't find a picture of the machine on the net so I'm not sure.

Clean the filter, I'll bet your problem goes away. You have to wonder why the idiot who sold the machine to you hasn't suggested this!

Making a noise during the spin cycle

Hello, it sounds like the bearings are going bad. Try spinning the drum with your hand while it is empty. It should spin nice and smooth. If the rotation feels a little rough and noisy, you might have a problem. You can double check by taking the drive belt off and try shaking the pulley. If there is "play" when shaking the pulley, the bearings are most likely toast. The inner stainless drum rides on two bearings which sit in the rear of the outer plastic drum. The whole plastic drum and bearings come as one piece and go for $150. It would cost about the price of a new maching to have someone come out and repair it for you. It sounds like kenmore has had a bearing problem which is pretty rediculous considering how much these things cost. Sears said, "those tend to go in a few years", which is criminal especially since the warrenty is usually conveniently exopired by the time this problem happens. If you are handy, have a spare day, and can remember how to put a washing machine back together, go for it. I did it and it was not a fun time. There is a lot of sharp metal edges in the machine so wear gloves.

Spin cycle trouble

possibly a segment has raised on the motor armature or a faulty motor brush. pop off the belt and put it into a spin cycle to see if you still hear the noise- if so the fault is with the motor as the drum will be still. any scraping sounds in the drum may be a lost bra wire.
