Based on info provided your ge would be a frigidaire made machine, only filter is at drain pump. to access remove lower front access panel (screws on bottom) pump sits in middle of machine, locate large rubber hose connecting to tub, loosen clamp and pull off. inside is plastic strainer cup, empty and replace. make sure nothing went past to pump, reassemble.

Machine keeps stopping

Hi there,
Had the same problem and thought that it was electronic driven. It seems that "rebooting" the washer solved it (as in unplugging for 30sec then plugging back). Investigating a smell issue I just found out about the filter located behind the bottom front panel (3 screws to remove at bottom of panel). The trap was full of stuff (as in really bad). I suspect that it prevented the machine from draining fully/properly/timely and messed the programs up causing the machine to stop. You might have a similar problem...
Good luck

My ge model wbvh5200j2ww washer wont't start. it has power on the panel but doorwon't latch or start filling.

If the pump filter is clogged, the washer won't even turn on. This filter is located behind the small access panel at the bottom on the front of the washer. Remove access panel, flip down scoop, and unscrew filter. You will need a bowl to catch water that comes out(may smell bad). Pull out filter, clean, and replace. Washer should work normally afterwards.

I see this is an old post, but if someelse has this problem I hope this helps. I had this same problem.
My GE front load washer (GBVH6260) has a filter located behind the front cover below the door. My manual makes no mention of this filter no is it obvious. Remove the three screws located at the bottom of the cover below the washer door, and remove the cover. You will see a what looks like a knob. This is the filter. Be sure to place a pan under it as best you can. If your washer is holding water be prepared you could get over a gallon, have some towels ready. Unscrew the filter and slide it out, it slides in the same way.

In most machines the filter is located under the panel in the bottom of the machine (the panel under the front door).
If u have manual refer; pull the panel out and you will find the filter there.

Before you open the filter keep a bowl & cloth to collect much water.
