GE Front Loader Washer - Not washing

Everything works fine on the machine until the wash cycle. I put the clothes in, the door locks, turns the clothes one way, then the other. The door then unlocks, pauses, relocks and the water goes into the machine. After that, the machine won't spin to wash the clothes. Can some give me some advice?

    This problem is caused by the trap in the bottom of the washer is full. When this happens the washer cannot drain and so it does not continue the cycle. Unplug the unit. You will have to remove the bottom panel on the front of the washer. Once removed you will find a white plastic plug that you can unscrew. It is near the electrical connections be very careful. You will need towels to clean up the trapped water that will come out when you remove the plug. When you pull out the plug remove all debris from the attached trap and the hose leading into it. Replace plug and dry up any water you have spilled on the electrical connections. Plug in washer and it will work like new. You will have to repeat this procedure every few months if you have kids who leave stuff in their pockets.

It sound like a lid switch issue. If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. Look that the switch is not broken or loose. If all is fine, you should replace the switch. Good luck!

hi Margaret.
If the washing machine malfunctions or you need to stop the cycle and retrieve the clothing, you can force the door to unlock.
  • Open the door after the "Door Lock" indicator turns off. ...
  • Press the "On/Off" button, if the washer is not already on.
  • Select the "Spin Speed" button to turn on the Drain & Speed cycle.

Samsung wf8750lsw front loader door wont open


Not sure if you mean when it is fully off or operating, but if you mean that once it is operating the door won't open, then the following applies...

Once a front loader wash cycle starts, the door on a front loader is physically (electronically) locked until the full cycle ends after spin dry. This is to prevent anyone opening the door and letting all the water out in the middle of the wash cycle, which a lot of people try to do to put in more clothing etc.

Door on ge front loader washer leaks, door gasket is fine. Could it be the lock not working properly


Yes it could be the door lock not pulling the door in enough to make the seal. Solution... Remove covers and with door pressed in hard, ( You may need help ), adjust the lock mechanism to make seal. Put lock-tite on the threads after it works for you. This will prevent the shaking of the washer from losening of the nuts again.

This worked for me. I turned off the washer and hit the area on the washer directly to the right of the door handle (not hard enough to break something or cause a dent). It popped right open.

Control Lock is on my front loader.


ok, you are in the model selection part of the service mode. for 6240 I believe the model code is 3 select this and press start. normally to release control lock press and hold small I button by start button.
if model selection in incorrect it can still be corrected. only difference in models is cycles matching the labels. you can tell by the time indication for each cycle if it doesnt look right then check book inside top cover

Sounds like the door lock unit isn't locking and may be bad. It is also a possiblity but not likely that there could be a problem with the computer board but start with the door lock unit first
