I have a GE WBVH6240HWW Front load washer. I tried to start a regular load. The washer started up, water went in and it started to wash for about 4 minutes, then it just sat, wouldn't switch cycles, drain, just sits, but the time left on the load keeps on going. When the time is done, it signals the load is finished and shuts off. Water is still in the drum, but door unlocks as if it washed the load and went through all the cycles. Any ideas?
I would try to clean the trap out at the bottom, there is a panel on the bottom take that off and clean out the trap, it looks like a turn dial, something like that has happend to me, it cant hurt to try

Washers - Resetting Electronic Controls on a Washer
If there is a pause in the washer cycle, the controls will lock up. The pause can occur because of a power failure or it was put in the test mode at the factory.
Also, if the washer was stopped before the cycle was complete or the consumer has pushed the stop/pause button to temporarily stop the cycle and the cycle is not reset. Over a period of 24 hours, the washer will pump out and spin, but will stay in the final spin.
To correct the situation, shut off the circuit breaker for 30 seconds or unplug the washer, then turn the timer knob around and back to any position other than final spin. Verify the water is turned on and restore power. This should resolve the issue.
