Question about GE Energy Star WCVH6260F Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Won't drain My washer worked fine until today when it would unlock and not spin the water out. I cleaned out the filter underneath and got alot of stuff out of there but it did not fix the problem. Also, when I start the washer it seems to hum. Would love to hear of any other ideas to remedy this problem.

The humming could be coming from the drain pump which may be jammed. The machine will not spin unless all the water has been drained out. If there is still water in the drum, remove the drain hose from where it attatches under the sink or tub and lie it down. Let water drain into a bucket untill the machine is empty. Switch off the machine and unplug it from the wall. Remove the hose that connects the tub to the drain pump from the drain pump and see if there is any obvious obstruction. If you can see the pump impellar, try turning it with your finger. If impellar does not turn freely, replace drain pump.

Washer won't spin

Hi hometownrock,

The washing machine may have a problem draining the water, if it cannot drain the water, then the cycle will not progress to Spin. You may have a foreign object in the Drain Pump Filter, this must be checked.

Please follow my below Tip on how to do this:


Kind Regards

Sounds like a bad lid switch. Check to see if you hear a "click" from the switch when you open and close the lid. If you do not, then you should replace the lid switch.

Hello, This is going to be one of 2 problems...either your drain filter is clogged or your pump is bad. Take off the lower panel on front, Behind this panel you will find what looks like a gas cap to a car. Unscrew this gas cap(have some towels handy to mop up water) remove the drain trap (filter) you should see alot of debris,coins maybe a sock blocking it...clean out the trap and replace. If this does not fix the problem replace the pump, although it sounds like it's humming it may be siezed or impellers might be broken. The pump should be located right next to the drain filter at the front of the machine. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!!! Mike

Not draining and washer arm not spinning

Have you cleaned the drain filter? The symptoms you describe indicate that the filter are totally clogged.

Cleaning filters should be done every other week to maintain good function in dishwashers, it is not uncommon people forget that.

You access the filter by removing the perforated stainless steel plate at the floor of the washer tub, usually there is a round plastic knob in the middle that you turn counter-clockwise then lift it up. Underneath this plate you will find the main filter, take it out and clean with a soft brush under running water.

Good luck!

Kenmore front load won't drain spins then blinks no spin

Yes this is the place, but you have to mop up the water or it would flood the place; clean out the muck from the filter and refit carefully. You have to clean your filter according to usage, the filter does not self clean, no way.

Won't spin out on normal wash cycle

I think I figured this one out. I think it means that the washer is not able to drain, therefore it won't spin either. Underneath the washer is a series of outlet hoses and within one of them is a filter. When I finally found the filter it was clogged up with lint, fibers from a pillow and coins. You have to dig the filter out and then clean the filter and rehook up the hoses, this was relatively simple even for me. The washer works perfectly now.

GE Front Load Washer Model#GCVH6260F-Problem with no washing, spin or aggitate function but motor works fine...

try cleaning out the filter - it's behind the bottom panel (three screws to remove) you will see a round disk - unscrew it and pull out the filter. I have to clean ours every six months - it's too bad GE didn't put it in their manual, that this needs to be cleaned periodically.
