SOURCE: GE Front load washer WCHVH 6260F
I had the same problem.....The start/pause button would flash during a cycle and the washer would not finish the cycle. After reading on this forum that there is a filter/strainer inline with the drain, I tried this solution.
Remove the (3) screws that hold the lower front panel (Just below the door)
Once the panel is removed, you should see a white plastic strainer hooked to the washer drain.
Please a large bowl under the opening and unscrew the knob/handle, pull the filter/strainer out and clean all of the lint/trash out of this area.
My filter/strainer was clogged with a baby sock, 2 doilies, a fewe pennies, 2 dimes and lot's of lint.
I believe all of this debris was causing musty odors in the machine as the lint would stink due to dampness.
Once I cleared out this filter/strainer the problem and my odors went away
I wish GE would add this "EASY" step into the owners manual for proper care and maintenace.
Thank you for letting me know about this filter/strainer as it did resolve my problem

This error code (C3) means your water sensor has detected a leak. it will stop when the sensor is dry.
Try getting the water out of the trap door and letting the machine dry.
I would also unplug it for secirity reasons.
Basically your water pump is getting tired or the sensor is dirty. Try cleaning the sensor or else you may have to change the pump.

SUD- Suds lock (Overdose of detergent detected during the wash cycle, or the actual brand is a non HE type)
The Motor Control Unit senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on the drive motor. If "Sud" is displayed a potential Suds Lock is detected. This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds.
Possible Causes / Procedure
• If too much detergent was used:
A. Run the unit through a Rinse/Spin cycle.
B. Run a Normal cycle without adding any detergent.
This should clear the unit of the excess detergent. If the problem persist, follow this check list below.
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check drain pump.
7. Check the pressure switch.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or any cycle.
Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
