Question about GE Energy Star WCVH6260F Front Load Washer
I have a Maytag Epic model #MFW9800TQ0 that will stop mid cycle, never at the same point, and it doesn't always spin out all the water. Also, the door will lock but the lock light on the control panel doesn't come on. I have cleaned the drain pump filter but the machine is still stopping mid cycle and leaving a little water in it. I should also mention that if the machine does spin the door doesn't always lock. I am thinking it may either be the door latch not working properly or the control panel needs replaced. What else could it be and/or which should I try first? Your thoughts please.

Jayron, is the motor jogging? start to spin, stop, start to spin stop. If so, your motor is jogging between the high and low start windings. The motor during spin should start on the high speed windings and stay there until most of the water is drained. GE came out with a new motor, harness and run cap because of this. If you have a meter, there should be a white and white/red wire going to the motor. If you have a steady 120V and it's doing this jogging, replace the motor with the kit...Let me know if this the issue, Catriver..post back.

Sounds like very worn motor brushes to me, as its trying to turn the drum but has'nt the power needed to maintain any momentum,and the blinking door light is because of the bad cotact from brushes to motor.About £20 for a set of brushes or get an engineer to fit new brushes,but get a price first.

all you need to do is clean the filter. you can get to it by unscrewing the front screws at the bottom to remove the bottom panel. Unscrew the filter but be ready to have something to catch the water overflow. Coins did it for us. There was not much lint. Hope this helps.
Cheerup and be happy always

you would need to go into the fault codes and read them. the tech sheet should be under the lid or in the kick panel

The filter is hidden below the lower front panel (3 screws hold this in place) Turn the pump cleanout knob counterclockwise about 2 turns and be ready to mop up any water that leaks out as you remove it. To avoid spillage, you can pull the machine out and tip it backwards 45 degrees.
