Re: display not lighting up

This probably isn't a problem with the door lock mechanism; I think that what's happening is that you're not draining the water out of the tub. It's quite likely that the filter is clogged, or the drain motor is not functioning properly. Take a look here for the fix:

Re: display not lighting up

1/I suspect2 possible options ,the heat sink in door switch is failing to give 100 % contact any more giving a reduced power supply to circuitry - replace 2/ or power/start button fails to connect .remedy - replace switch , make sure power is turned off first or get service provider to replace it .

Washer will not run or complete a diagnostic.

1. The washing machine needs to be plugged in and in stand by mode with all indicators off.
2. Choose any one button on the washer's console except Power, Start, or Stop. Press/Hold 3 Seconds - Release 3 Seconds - Press/Hold 3 Seconds - Release 3 Seconds - Press/Hold 3 Seconds.
3. If the diagnostic test mode has been successfully entered, all of the indicator lights will glow for five seconds with 88 on the time display. (If it didn't work try #2 again One one thousand...Two one thousand...Three one thousand)
4. If there are any saved fault codes they will be displayed. If there are no save fault codes all indicator lights will turn off for a moment then back on with 88 displayed and the automatic diagnostic test mode will begin in five seconds.
5. If you are unable to enter the diagnostic test mode, press the power button and verify that the button you were trying to use operates properly to program the washer's cycle function. There may be something wrong with that function button. Find another button on the control that appears to work and try to enter the diagnostic mode with that button. You may also want to verify that the user interface has a good connection to the washing machine control board at the P11 terminal.

Note: Pressing the STOP or POWER button at any time to exit the washing machine's diagnostic mode.

When washing heavily soiled loads, do not overload your washer in order to assure good cleaning results.

To add a forgotten item:
1. Press the Power button.
2. Press the Start/Pause
3. Wait for the door lock light to go out (Immediately).
4. Add the item, close the door, and press the Start/Pause
The door safety state continues for 15 seconds and the cycle is restarted.
ensure thorough cleaning,
Try washing bedding, towels, undergarments,
contact using the ActivFresh
1. Load your washer.
2. Close the door.
Push the laundry into the drum completely to prevent the laundry from being caught in the door or
....... from falling out of the drum.
3. Press the Power button.
4. Add detergent and additives to the dispenser (page 20-21).
5. Select the appropriate cycle and options for the load (page 14-16).
6. Press the Start/Pause
7. The Wash Indicator light will illuminate.
8. The estimated cycle time will appear in the display.
The time may fluctuate to better indicate the time remaining in the cycle.
The actual time required for a cycle may differ from the estimated time in the display depending on the
water pressure, water temperature, detergent, and laundry.
9. Before your washer starts to fill, it will make a series of clicking noises to check the door lock and do a
quick drain.
When the cycle is complete, the door lock light will go out and "End" will appear in the display.

DO NOT attempt to open the door until the door lock light is off. To add a forgotten item, see
"Loading your washer" section (page 13).

When your washer is restarted after a pause, expect a delay of up to 15 seconds before the cycle

Pressing Power button cancels the cycle and stops your washer.

The pre wash, wash, rinse and spin indicator lights will illuminate during those portions of the cycle

The error message "door" is displayed and the machine won't start. I can I reset it.

I have Blomberg WM87120 NBL00 Product code 717518110 and had flashing Lock in display. Bought and installed new lock and no change. Display still flashing lock. Used following procedure and every is working now.
Press pause button and hold down while turning off machine.Continue to hold pause button and turn power back on. If numbers come up on display make note of them for future reference. Release pause button and all lights on display will light up. Turn power off again and then turn back on. If machine was in a cycle it should end it and then return to normal operation. .Dont know if new lock made a difference. Try the reset procedure first.

GE model WHDVH626FWW Front load washer won't run, can't open door

your drain pump is likely clogged,and is equipped with a clean out port. remove lower cover by 3 phillips screws on bottom front. you see the drain pump up front to the right. If there is a lot of water left in machine then have bucket/pan avail and plenty of towels. wet dry shop vac helps. you can open door and remove clothes from here. reach up on right side to where the latch is on inside (you have to go by feel) and find small round pull tab on bottom of latch/lock asm, and pull down, this will unlock door. carefull of water level when opening door.
to fix problem, unscrew cap on pump asm. water will pour out, and a tray will slide out with debris clogging pump. look inside housing for remaining ****. using finger check impeller area on right..
reassemble. machine should work perfect now. Pump is designed to be cleaned out and will not void warranty. newer machines have access port cut in panel for this clean out area.

Door wont lock

I solved my own problem...
The machine stopped due to either a heavy load or clogged drain. I cleaned the drain (by taking pannel off the front of the machine). Then, the machine wouldn't cycle and it said "door locked" but the door wasn't locked. Basically, you have to let the machine finish a complete cycle (whether or not it actually does anything). Every time the start/pause button flashes, push it to have the machine try to start. This will eat away at the time. Eventually it will finish the cycle and say 0:00. Now it should run. This can take up to 2 hours so be patient!

1 Answer

Control lock light will not go off.

Do you have any error codes?

Does water remain in the washer after the final spin?
If water remains in the washer after the final spin, then the door will not unlock. Drain/Spin or Spin Only to remove any remaining water from the washer. The door should unlock at the end of the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light on?
If the Add A Garment light is on, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed once. Pressing the Start button will restart the washer at the same point where it left off in the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light off?
If the Add A Garment light is off, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed twice. The door will not immediately unlock while the cycle is running due to a possible high-water level in the washer, high-water temperature, tumbling or spinning. It may take up to five minutes for the washer to stop spinning and draining before the door will unlock. You will hear the door click when it unlocks.
If Pause/Cancel does not work:
  1. Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
  2. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, call for service.

GE WHDVH626fWW Door Locked, but not

As most these washers use the same control board.
try some of the troubleshooting you see here :
The main relay (black one on the right of board ) may be at fault in your issue.
these boards have bad solder joints in most all cases.
If its still in warranty it time to call them.
If you open it please post pics.
