Question about GE Energy Star WCVH6260F Front Load Washer
A sensor in the panel has gone out and would likely need to be replaced but giving the cost of a new machine i would have someone come out and replace the sensor in the unit this will fix the problem and you will not have another recurring until your ready to toss the machine to its graveyard. Wise investment would to have a GE rep come out give a FREE estimate and take it from there. Reparing this yourself might cause a little more issue then it would be actually worth in the long run. My adivce as a Expert here on Fixya is to see that autherized repair technition at this time..

This is the problem of motor in your washing machine.as it stops working before the cycle gets completed.the motor needs replacement.
the service manual of the GE model says :
GE old style washer motor quits before cycle is finished: Often the start relay for the motor sticks and makes the motor get too hot. This can cause the motor to over-heat and shut off on the built in safety sensor inside the motor. You may need to use a amp probe to test the motor properly, check model plate for proper amps. If this is let go too long the motor windings can also be damaged ( they may look black instead of a nice copper color). The wires on the relay are also bad for burning off the wire terminals. The wires at the motor should be checked to make sure they have not burned off or you can test the motor continuity with an ohm meter. See two newmotor wiring pictures.....here...and...here. The relay wires often burn off as well.
please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.thanks.
