Question about General Electric WBVH6240HWW Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a GE WBVH6240HWW Front load washer. I

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?

All front loaders have to be run thru a clean cycle with no clothes or soap atleast Twice a month. You can use bleach or buy one of the special cleaners they have for washers.

Does the door lock when you attempt to start the washer?
If not, you might check the door sensor. The washer may not realize the door is closed.

There is a musty oder coming from inside washing machine.


Dump in a gallon of white vinegar, fill with water, highest setting, after it goes through that setting, turn it off and let it set in the washer for about 30 minutes (use hot water).

Then put it on another wash cycle and then go to the rinse and spin. This should remove the order, and you should leave the door open when not in use.

Good Luck

GE Adora front load washer overloaded now won't start


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.
