    Same problem here. The clothes are soaked when the cycle is done - that is, if it actually completes the full cycle. It just keeps pausing and unlocking the door. I've RECLEANED the filter (tip I learned on this site previously) but there was nothing in the filter this time so now I'm hoping for another miracle solution from you FixYa techs! Come on - don't let me down!!! :-) Lori

Sounds like there is a pumping/blockage problem. check the filter and all drain hoses/outlets. if all clear the pump may be faulty. is the drum turning at all?

My wash machine wash the clothes but not doing the final spin, all the clothes all soak and wet


Handyman here -

Its possible that the door is not locking properly. If the door doesn't lock the machine will wash, but not spin the clothes dry. If you wait 15mins or so after machine is done, then set cycle to spin, it will pump any water that has dripped off your clothes out, but again it will not spin. Helps a little.

Good Luck!

I have a FE WCVH6260. Multiple times every cycle the machine door will unlock, and the cycle will stop. It will only restart when the "start/stop" button is pushed again.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Some problems that can occur with your top-loading washing machine are:

There's an error code on the digital display

It doesn't work at all
It won't drain
It doesn't spin
It doesn't agitate
It's noisy
It leaks
It's off balance
There's no hot water
There's no cold water
It's slow to fill
There's no water at all
The clothes are wet after spinning
The cycle doesn't advance
There's no delicate or regular spin or agitate
It's overfilling
It's underfilling
The water temperature is incorrect


Hope this may help;

The washer will not spin and the load of clothes is still wet it clicks on and off within 1 minute and the door is not staying locked


i would consult the technical papers within the lower unit, but i believe if the door latch is not locking, or otherwise broken it will not enter the spin cycle therefore leaving the clothes very damp indeed.
best of luck,

My GE washing machine does not spin the water completely out of clothes. Garments come out very soggy and have to be wrung out by hand before putting them in the dryer. Any ideas?


My washer was pausing during the rinse cycle, sometimes leaving the clothes very wet as well. I pulled out the filter underneath the lower panel, it was packed with coins, etc. Has been running fine (draining) ever since. Hope this helps...

Door unlocks and won't spin or drain


it sounds like a clogged filter
Please remove the filter on the side of the machine or the front.
Make sure you have towels handy.
Clear the filter out. If your pump cant empty the machine out you will get these problems
Make sure waterline is not obstructed

GE Front Loader Washer - Not washing


It sound like a lid switch issue. If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. Look that the switch is not broken or loose. If all is fine, you should replace the switch. Good luck!
