Try some WD40 on the door lock. The washer won't start if the door doesn't lock.

Wfw9150 door won't unlock


Try pressing the "end of cycle" button on the right side of the panel for 3 to five seconds. Wait for 3 minutes to open the door, do not force it. And you start all over again. Please reply as to the outcome. And if it is good you give me a 4 thumbs up rating.

Washer won't start


Sounds like the door lock may be faulty or it isn't closed fully. If it has a child lock check you haven't set it by mistake, you have to hold the start for 5 secs+ to override it.

The start / pause button will not work ...all other buttons are working


Make sure that the front door is locked or that the door switch is contacting to give the feedback signal to the main circuit board. This is a safety feature of the washer because unless the front switch works - door shut-the washer will not work - no action on start/pause.
Replace if the switch is faulty.

GE WCVH6800 Pressing start results in two short beeps. The pause/start button keeps blinking and it will not start a cycle.


Is the door lock button on, but the door not actually locked? Our door lock switch keeps going out. We have replaced it 4 times in the last 3 years.

Push start different sound water may start may not start pause


I would check to make sure the connectors to that door lock are all connected. If they are it's probably the lock/switch mechanism itself. Wow I just checked and they are about $120. The p/n is wh10x10006 You can google around for the best price. Good luck!

Control lock light will not go off.


Do you have any error codes?

Does water remain in the washer after the final spin?
If water remains in the washer after the final spin, then the door will not unlock. Drain/Spin or Spin Only to remove any remaining water from the washer. The door should unlock at the end of the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light on?
If the Add A Garment light is on, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed once. Pressing the Start button will restart the washer at the same point where it left off in the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light off?
If the Add A Garment light is off, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed twice. The door will not immediately unlock while the cycle is running due to a possible high-water level in the washer, high-water temperature, tumbling or spinning. It may take up to five minutes for the washer to stop spinning and draining before the door will unlock. You will hear the door click when it unlocks.
If Pause/Cancel does not work:
  1. Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
  2. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, call for service.
