Hi Jennifer,
Here is a link to the USER'S MANUAL for that model of washer:
http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-90392-2.pdf

Just click on the underlined text above to view an electronic copy of the manual.
On page 8 of that manual you will see instructions related to the LOCK feature on your washer.
It says that to LOCK or UNLOCK the washer, just hold down the DELAY START button for 3 seconds. The lock icon on the display should then disappear.
If that does not work for your model, then try holding down the SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.
One of these two procedures should solve your problem.
Hope that helps.
Take care and thank you for using FIXYA.


Joe.

Sounds like you have a bad board and needs to be replaced.
Is this washer under warranty and if not did you take out an extended warranty?

My GE jgbp24 oven is stuck in self-cleaning mode. How can I fix this?


It sounds like the self clean solenoid has locked the door and you will need a service technician to come and release it for you. You will likely need to replace the door locking mechanism.

I had stored my ge frontloader washer and dryers for about 4 months and reinstalled them i turn the washer on and it runs threw its cycle and does not spin so the close are soaked in the washer the model...


I would remove the back and investigate for mouse/rat damage. If you had them in storage a rodent may have made himself a home. They like to chew thru wires and plastic components. Or a wire connection may have come loose when you moved them into storage or back from storage.

Hi, my GE Profile Mod# JBP90GV2BB S/N ZM223214G began beeping this morning and posted an F9 code in the display. The stove hasn't been used in 2 days. What does the F9 code indicate and what ccan I do to...


F9-- Failed Lock switch detected.

Check wiring to door lock switch (the wire harness may be connected wrong). Check for stuck lock switch.

If the wires are ok and, the switch is not stuck, replace it asap.

GE monogram ZET3038 locked on Sabbath mode


How to Exit the Sabbath Feature
Touch the Clear/Off pad.
If the oven is cooking, wait for a random
delay period of approximately 30
seconds to 1 minute, until only ⊃ is
in the display.
Press and hold both the Bake and Broil
Hi/Lo pads, at the same time, until the
display shows SF.
Tap the Delay Start pad until
12 shdn or no shdn appears in the
display. 12 shdn indicates that the oven
will automatically turn off after 12
hours. no shdn indicates that the oven
will not automatically turn off.
Touch the Start pad.
NOTE: If a power outage occurred while
the oven was in Sabbath, the oven will
automatically turn off and stay off even when
the power returns. The oven control must
be reset.

GE Microwave DEMO MODE


I just bought a condo with a GE Spacemaker Mod# JVM1860SD
that was stuck in demo mode. (This mod# has been replaced by the JVM1870*** series)

I called GE twice in two days, and finally got someone who had the solution (and it worked):

  1. Unplug the unit for at least 30 seconds
  2. Plug the unit back in DO NOT SET THE CLOCK
  3. While the unit is still "booting up" and the display screen is lit with gibberish, HOLD THE POWER LEVEL AND THE ZERO BUTTON for at least 5 seconds.
  4. After 5 seconds, the screen will display "demo mode off"
It messed me up at first because the power level and zero pads don't beep when the unit is booting up... but it worked.
- Again, this is for the GE Spacemaker 1860-1870 series models only - The women who gave me instructions said she had different demo mode unlock methods for the 1400, 3670, 2070 etc... so call GE if you have a different model.
P.S. my model looks like this - the keypad setup is key http://products.geappliances.com/ApplProducts/Dispatcher?REQUEST=SPECPAGE&SKU=JVM1870SK&SITEID=GEA
