Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

My GE front loading washer Model WCVH6260 does not start the rinse cycle spin. It has a motor sound and some water seems to be draining but the rinse cycle does not spin and the motor continues to make a sound until it seems to overheat and turns off and the washer door unlocks and the start button flashes. The washer is level. I checked it with a bubble level. And the load is not out of balance. I have run the washer on the speed cycle without clothes and the same problem occurs. The washer only has one motor that rotates the drum and it works during the wash cycle but not during the rinse cycle. Can you help? Thanks Bill

This has happened to us also. Our machine is 27 months old. I just had a non-GE repairman out and he showed me the mutilated belt. I was wrapped around the pulley. He said that the pulley had to be out of wack in order for this to happen because the belt looked in great condition (besides being in 3 pieces). Then the metal wheel (don't know the official name) is now warped and had gouged 3 grooves into the cheap plastic outer tub. So badly that it went thru to where the water is. So NOW, I have a big piece of scrap metal in my basement. I need a new outer tub, pulley, belt and at least 2 hours of labor. So a bill of 4-500$. I think GE can take this hunk of metal! But of course, GE has to send out their service man to inspect it. So I have to pay another service fee. They need to scrap this model and possibly others. What a waste of a whole lot of money. NEVER again.

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

My washer stops before the rinse cycle because it can't seem to drain enough to start the spin cycle. I just had the drain motor replaced one month ago. I get the error code nd. I can sto the cycle and...


I'd love to say yes! The machine is stopping because it will not drain. This is what the nd code means. Therefore, it will not rinse (add more water) or spin because the water level is already too high and to try to "spin it out" would put too much pressure on the machine with that much water in it. Drain out the water by putting the drain hose below the level of the washer (this takes forever) and call your repair man back!

All our whites are now greys washing with our GE WCVH6260


graying of clothes is usualy caused by / serveral things . too much soap / washer not rinsing properly / and gas dryers. change your dergt. use one with a bleach in it . and use 2nd rinse ( cold water ) make sure washer drains wash water completly . do this by cking the drain pump clean out .. if cloged it will slow the drain cycle and you will be rinsing with the wash water . also use H E dergt. . if dergt is still in clothes when drying this turns nylon yellow and whites gray .. .also seperate colors . and whites .. **** ..

Washer wil not spin or drain out after cycle completed


sounds like drain is plugged. this is a fairly easy fix,and you actually get paid to do it. unscrew the bottom panel of your washer should be 3 screws on the very bottom then you will see a white plug that is about 2 1/2" unscrew it (make sure you have a bowl under it water will leak ) and pull it out. this is where you get paid you will find all kinds of change and junk just clean it out reinstall and your clothes will be a lot drier after the spin cycle

Drain pump starts and stops prior to final spin cycle


Jayron, is the motor jogging? start to spin, stop, start to spin stop. If so, your motor is jogging between the high and low start windings. The motor during spin should start on the high speed windings and stay there until most of the water is drained. GE came out with a new motor, harness and run cap because of this. If you have a meter, there should be a white and white/red wire going to the motor. If you have a steady 120V and it's doing this jogging, replace the motor with the kit...Let me know if this the issue, Catriver..post back.
