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.

Re: won't drain

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.

You can try this:

First check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly screwed. Next check your filter if you haven't for long.

Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out

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

Washer not spinning

Plug off the mains. The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a good plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Check your pump too.

First check your kitchen drain (or wherever your washer is installed)by pouring a good amount of water into it, to see if it is clear. Try snaking it out.

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.

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.
