Question about GE WCVH6260F Front Load Washer
When I press start it will lock, spin, unlock, lock and a few seconds later the drain pump will start and run for a minute or two. Then everything stops and the start light flashes at you. The only thing that happens after that is the timer counts down. HELP!
Your drain pump is obstructed. You need to remove the bottom panel to access the drain pump. The drain pump will be in the front center of the unit. Once accessed you will see a large knob/screw this will need to be turned clockwise (be ready with some towels and bucket) once you have it open, you should be able to clean out the trap. Reverse to reassemble.. Good luck.. Hope this helps... Bill

The door will remained locked while draining water. If during installation the washer was plugged in and turned on without water hoses attached, the washer may attempt to drain for 8 minutes before the door unlocks. Let the washer run until the door unlocks. Do not turn off the washer or unplug the washer.
Does water remain in the washer after the final spin?
If water remains in the washer after the final spin, then the door will not unlock. Select Drain/Spin or Spin Only to remove any remaining water from the washer. The door should unlock at the end of the cycle. For models that have Rinse/Drain & Spin, push the Extra Rinse button to turn off the rinse to remove excess water.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light on?
If the Add A Garment light is on, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed once. Pressing the Start button will restart the washer at the same point where it left off in the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light off?
If the Add A Garment light is off, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed twice. The door will not immediately unlock while the cycle is running due to a possible high-water level in the washer, high-water temperature, tumbling or spinning. It may take up to five minutes for the washer to stop spinning and draining before the door will unlock. You will hear the door click when it unlocks.
Trying to gain access into a locked door can be a bit frustrating. Upon researching your question I found some links that may help you unlock your washer door. I attached all links below. I hope this helps!
