Question about GE Energy Star WCVH6260F Front Load Washer

1 Answer

The washer locks and unlocks the door without doing anything. It will move 2x and do it again if you hit the start button. It gets the clothes wet, but that is all.

    this machine normally locks and unlocks the door then relocks automatically. When it is doing this it is doing a system check. if it never relocks you should get an error code. does the drum turn between locks? Have you noticed the sound of the lock compared to when it last completed a normal cycle, this can help determine if the lock is the problem?

We called a repair man and he said that the controller was bad. It would cost $500 to fix and he said he sees it on so many GE front loading washers. GE knows these are bad, yet won't admit it. I think it's time for a class action lawsuit (I am not a lawyer, just mad that I bought this, making life horrible for a family of 5). Will NEVER EVER buy anything with GE on it. May quit watching NBC programs. They should not be allowed to knowingly victimize working families across this wonderful country of ours.

Door stuck Locked Control Locked light on


Try unplugging the washer for at 30 minutes to reset the computer, first. If this proves unsuccessful, you can retrieve you clothes by using the manual release. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r622155-kenmore_elite_whirlpool_duet_door_jammed

Once you retrieve your clothes, try running diagnostics on it. You can envoke the diagnostic sequence by selecting DRAIN/SPIN, NO/SPIN and then pressing any button under OPTIONS 4 times (must be the same button). The display should go to "C00" as the washer begins a sequence of tests that checks the fill functions, door lock, dispenser functions, motor speed, spin and drain. Allow the washer to run through the entire sequence and shut off. If anything is wrong an error code should be generated. Hopefully, all you had was a minor glitch. Let me know how things turn out. I hope this helps you.
