Washer pauses at various points in all cycles

HI, My GE WBVH6240F is pausing at various points in all cycles. This is the second washer that has done the same thing. The retailer that we bought it from replaced the original washer. Both washers worked fine for about a month before this started. After pressing the pause button, the cycle will continue but will not spin the clothes dry. The drum turns, but very slowly, and the clothes are still very wet. We called our service center on the first washer, the technician said he had never seen this model and had no training on it. He put main system board on order but it went back order and took about 4 weeks to come in. By then, the retailer had swapped the broken one for a new one. The new washer started doing the same thing yesterday. Any ideas? My Whirlpool, LSB6200KQ0, stops in the middle of wash cycle. I checked the switch, the spin switch, both are fine. My next step is attempting to clean the drain filter, but where is it? Would you please help me on this issue? Thanks in advance alex in Texas confused

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too. Refer to your users' manual to find where the filter is, etc.

GE washer, model WBVH6240FWW. runs a cycle until the rinse cycle then pauses. I've done alot of cleaning of various parts, but still have th the ie problem. currently have the pump out to see if there...


Don't take the impeller off if no clog there then check all hoses and filter. If not, there's a code you can check for by using the servicers book that should be located under the top. Remove the rear screws and slide the top back to remove and enter the top of the unit.

Washer won't spin


Check the washer motor. Make sure that the motor is getting correct voltage and is working and spinning when you turn it on. It sounds like the motor is bad. You can remove the back cover to get to the motor to check it out

Washer keeps pausing


you may have something in your drain pump. 
1) Remove the three screws in the bottom remove bottom panel.
2) Remove drain pump cover (have towels or pan to catch water that comes out)
3) Remove any debris from pump, check that the impeller is not damaged and can be moved freely.
4) reinstall drain pump cover and bottom panel

Peace friend,
ngfam1 at your service

Tell the dealer you want a different make!
IT'S EASIER TO KEEP CUSTOMERS THAN TO FINED NEW ONES!

We have been selling appliances for over 65 years!
And you will only see one GE appliance on my showroom floor!

Whirlpool or SPEED QUEEN! ARE THE BEST!

HERE IS MY STORY FOR YOU!


AFTER 6 YEARS AND THREE repairs.
I threw GE in the trash and bought a Speed Queen Commercial grade washer and, I AM 53 YEARS OLD AND THIS IS THE LAST WASHER I WILL EVER BUY!
tHEY ARE TESTED AT 8 loads a week for 25 years!!!!!!!

The washers and dryers today use so much less water,electricity,and detergent that they pay for them selves after a only a few years.
My advise is, it is cheaper to buy, run, and operate a new efficient machine! You will see you water and electric bill reduced!!!!!!!!!
Speed Queen commercial grade top loader uses only 34 gallon of water compared to the others at 48-54 gallons!


THE FRONT LOADER,

(GET THIS) ONLY 13.9 GALLONS of water and washes in 35 minutes and the clothes are cleaner and last longer cause it uses water agitation instead of a vain to wear out your clothes! How about spinning at 1000 RPM and the clothes come out so dry they are only in the dryer half the time than all the other machines! Thus half the gas or electric bill!!
All my employees have replaced their laundry pairs with Speed Queen!
My Guys call it the, "No brainier Machine!"

I hope you can utilize the good advice I so enjoy sharing with all the good people we talk to!

GE Adora front load washer overloaded now won't start


Washers - Resetting Electronic Controls on a Washer

If there is a pause in the washer cycle, the controls will lock up. The pause can occur because of a power failure or it was put in the test mode at the factory.

Also, if the washer was stopped before the cycle was complete or the consumer has pushed the stop/pause button to temporarily stop the cycle and the cycle is not reset. Over a period of 24 hours, the washer will pump out and spin, but will stay in the final spin.

To correct the situation, shut off the circuit breaker for 30 seconds or unplug the washer, then turn the timer knob around and back to any position other than final spin. Verify the water is turned on and restore power. This should resolve the issue.

Bob, remove the bottom panel and right in front you will see the pump filter. Get a bucket and remove the filter cover, pull the strainer out and see if it's clogged with lint. If the pressure switch on these models detects too much water in the tub (which you wouldn't be able to see) it will not go into a high spin and do this slow tumble you are refering to. Check this first and see if it operates normally, Catriver...post back.
