Question about GE WBVH6240F Front Load Washer

Open Question

GE Front Load Washer will not run through cycle.

We have a GE front loading washer WBVH6240 that would not spin or drain. We removed the lower front panel and cleaned the pump filter. Started a speed wash but when it came to the wash cycle the drum came to a halt and the timer was just running down. Tried to pause and power off (was not able to power off) to unlock door and it finally unlocked after maybe 10 minutes. We finally were able to power down the washer and unplugged it for 10 minutes. Started a spin & drain and the drum rocked back and forth, then door locked, and timer ran down with nothing happening at all.
Washer is maybe 2 years old. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

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

Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

The first thing I'd suggest is removing the filter in the pump you spoke of and insuring the pump is clear...there may be alot of water though so hopefully you're close to a drain or have some buckets/towels handy.

If that fails to resolve the problem it could be a plugged or faulty pressure switch. Have you run a system diagnostic yet ?

Here's how and the subsequent code meanings...in the event you don't know...

Let me know if any of this helps or perhaps you cannot read it, It is all included in the service manual I can send via email if you could use it.

Good luck.

My question is; the washer,model,wbvh6240 has any filter


No , all new front loads have a self cleaning filter. Therefore nothing needs to be emptied or clean. The little trap door in front of the washer is to drain it in case of a power failure when the washer is full of water. .

GE front load washer will not complete the rinse & spin cycle


1) 1st check the filter under the machine (it unscrews behind the access panel 2) open front door and pull back the rubber membrane to see metal and clean out the debris blocking drain holes 3) remove the drain hose from the machine (spring clip) and try and run water thru it and keep blowing out the junk and re-attach 4) run the machine thru 2 cleaning cycles w/bleach and without bleach 5) start using less detergent

My GE Front load washer (WBVH6240) has an odor that smells like mildew in it. If the is left closed the odor is really bad. Do you know how to fix this or what is comes from?


run a empty cycle with bleach on whites/ sanitize. clean boot (rubber gasket at door) with bleach or other cleaner inside especially at bottom, make sure 3 holes at bottom are clear.
this may take multiple cycles to rid of odor.
For maintenance, you should wipe excess water from boot after last load, and check lower drain holes. Once a month wipe boot with windex or other. and run cleaner cycle (empty) newer machines have a special clean washer cycle. (6240 doesnt).
Also clean your drain pump filter at bottom front behind access panel.
If boot is really bad , replace.

Won't Rinse


Had this same problem with my GE WBVH6240 Front Load Washer which we have had for about 5 years. After performing surgery on it; cleaning out the drain hoses, cleaning out the filter several times, checking the operation of the pump, checking the water pressure coming in to the washer, finally narrowed it down to the water valve. Ordered a new valve through Appliance Parts Pros. Got it in 2 days through regular shipping, installed it in less than 10 min, ran it through a quick wash cycle and everything works 4.0. Don't know which parts you replaced but this fix which I eventually got to only cost $50. Saved me hundreds and/or the possibility of buying a brand new washer. Hope this helps.
