Question about GE WBVH6240F Front Load Washer
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.

Tips for a great answer:
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.
