Question about GE WBVH6240F Front Load Washer

2 Answers

I ran the test program and found faults

Located inside the top panel of the washer is a printed tech test program.

error on t02 was E70 meaning key stuck. I pressed every button and each key responded appropriately.
t08 the hot water valve would not work at all. We switched connectors from hot pump to cold pump and the program test ran. So we are pretty sure the hot water valve needs replaced.
t10 tt (tumble tub) did not work at all
t11 spin speed test it would not spin at all.
t06 the over fill and empty didn't automatically work or we chickened out thinking it was too full and the seal was going to break.

The washer will not function past the lock tumble unlock, lock and fills on cold water only.
the washer started out not running any hot water programs. It would work on cold water settings. Now it won't wash at all. If we replace the hot water valve will the tumble and spin problems miraculously disappear?

Re: I ran the test program and found faults

This is wierd, but I changed the water valves, unfortunately, the company sent me a replacement that was not exactly the same, I drilled one hole and mounted the new valve set. After installing the valves, I ran the machine in order to run the diagnostics, all worked, and all is fine now. Going on nearly two months, and all stil seems to work. I believe the hot water valve was shorted out, causing the computer to crap out...

I have automatic hitachi washing mashine 110Q it has an error f9 what does it mean plz?

"F09" is an Overflow Condition error. The following link explains how to diagnose the problem yourself:

Read through the information provided and check all the common sense things that you can easily eliminate, first. For more in-depth troubleshooting procedures, refer to the tech sheet that came with your washer. The tech sheet is located inside your appliance. To access, remove the lower toe panel under the door by removing the screws under the bottom front edge (you may have to prop the two front feet of the washer up for better access - a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off.

The tech sheet will either be located directly behind the toe panel, or affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. The tech sheet includes troubleshooting tips, error code definitions, test points, diagnostics procedures and wiring diagrams. You will need to use the tech sheet to accurately locate and perform some of the steps I have outlined. F09 Error Code Fixya

FL GE Adora Washer - WHDVH626FWW, will not spin, clothes come out wet. When I run "rinse and spin", water comes in, but drum only spins initially left half turn, then right half turn, never spins...

Hi Walter:
In oreder your diagnostic, that means that your motor control board has faild and needs to be replaced. This part is located behind the lower front panel. if you remove the screws along the bottom of the lower front panel, you can then pull the panel off and the control board is on the left side with all the wires going into it.

You can replace it yourself if you'd like, you will need to remove the lower front panel to gain access which is probably the hardest part. And you can order the part from if you have a full model number if you wanted to.

You need the motor control board. Here is a link to the part for your model number: PartDetail/Control-Board/WH12X10418/1475761

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

I found a small part (looks like the top part of a pen) in my washer, now when i turn on the washer the goes in but does not stop, does not start the wash cycle. Also door keeps locking and unlocking.

  1. Unplug power cord, then wait 30 seconds.
  2. After plugging in, follow these instructions...
To Enter SERVICE MODE: Press Signal-Delay-5ignal-Delay (within 30 seconds of plugging in washer).
To Exit SERVICE MODE: Repeat Signal-Delay-Signal-Delay.

Ge WCVH6800 front load washer. Power was interrupted during washing cycle. Machine counts down 3.6 minutes, then goes off. How do you correctly reset cpu or test system

Here how you "test" the system: While in test mode "t02", you can reset all the error codes by holding down Start until it displays E00. If you find errors in the t02 test, make sure you write them down before clearing.

When the machine on it showing f-01

Tilt the washer back and support it with wood blocks so you can remove the kick panel screws and get the tech sheet from inside.

F/01 is an EEPROM error on the CCU. A power glitch may cause this error; unplug washer or disconnect power for two minutes. If broken, then you'll need a new CCU-- not a rare event on this washer.

s there a link to the diagnostic test for the washer? I found the one for the dryer here:

Front load washer door locked

"F22" is a door latch error code. This could be a momentary program glitch, a failed door latch, a problem with the Central Control Unit (CCU), or the interconnecting wiring between the two. The following link explains how to troubleshoot the error and/or replace the latch if necessary:

Attempt to reset the CCU, first, to see if this is just a program glitch. Then, inspect all the interconnecting wirig between the latch and CCU to make sure you have good contact.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. the first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

NOTE: For an explanation of all the error codes, each one of these washers comes with a technical data sheet inside.

To access, you will need to remove the lower toe panel under the door. The access screws are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. You may have to prop the two front fett of the washer up for better access ( a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel should drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet isn't directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.

The tech sheet lists all error code definitions, troubleshooting data, diagnostics procedures and wiring diagrams. I mention the tech sheet because you may need it to troubleshoot this particular error code.

Read through the information provided and let me know if you have any further questions. I hope you find this information helpful.

E70 message before last spin cycle.

The F70 and F71 error codes on this model of washer indicates a communication problem between the user interface control board and the central control unit (main control board). These error codes can sometimes be caused by a power surge or glitch through the electrical lines. Try unplugging the washer to completely disconnect electrical power. Wait 1 minute and then plug the washer back in to the see if the fault code clears. If it does, then the washer may work normally.

If the code reappears, then you could have a wire harness connection problem, a failed user interface control board or a failed central control unit. I recommend calling a service technician to properly diagnose and repair this type of problem so that the correct component can be replaced.

Be sure your unit is plugged into a 3 prong grounded outlet as well.

F71 is a "heatbeat failure" which means that your front interface control board is shorted and will need to be replaced. it's actually fairly easy to replace and can definitely be done by yourself. To access the part, just pull the unit forward and remove the 3 screws coming in from the back of the top panel. Remove the top panel by pulling it back, up, and off. Then remove all the screws going into the top of the control panel. Remove the dispenser drawer and remove the screws coming in through the dispenser. Remove the screws coming from the inside of the dryer going forward into the control panel, then remove the control panel (it's just clipped in on the bottom. After that you can disconnect the wire harnesses to the front interface control board and replace that part.
