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.

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.

Macmarkus :)

I have a whirlpool duet front load washer. the spin cycle did not complete and their's water still left inside. i've tried to shut off the washer and restart it, it will spin once and then stop...


Hi

This issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

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. .

Where?s the filter on my GE WSXH208A Front Loader? Thank you beltronic205 (GE WSXH208A Front Loader won?t drain). I drained the tub by lowering the drain hose as suggested. But where is the filter, what...


There is no acutal filter on this unit...You cab remove the back panel to access the drain pump ...Or tilt the washer back and access it from the bottom...Remove the drain hose from tub to drain pump...(careful of flow of water from tub)...Check the hose for any blockage...If no blockage then your pump is bad..

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

GE WSSH300G0WW will drain the water, but not strt the spinning. Is there a filter that might need cleaning?


Yes, the filter can be accessed by removing lower front panel. Unscrew pump cover filter. Have a shallow pan and towels to catch water when servicing
