GE WBVH6240 Front load washer. Pump running while empty

GE WBVH6240 Front load washer. The drain pump won't shut off and door is locked. I've cleaned the filter/trap. The drain had evacuated all of the water...but the pump keeps running. I've unplugger the washer overnight in an attempt to reset and run error codes....but after powering up, the pump continues to run and door remains locked. Could this be the pressure switch (water level switch), control board, or ???

You would need to go into the fault codes and read them. the tech sheet should be under the lid or in the kick panel

Maytag Neptune MAH8700A tha detergent drawer is filling up with water and running out of the drawer onto the floor not going into the tub.


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Belt, Water Pump If the washer won't drain the pump belt might have broken or might have worn out. Check the belt and replace if it shows signs of excessive wear.

Drain Pump If the washer won't drain water the drain pump might be defective. It's also common for a small sock or other article of clothing to get caught in the drain pump or in the drain hose. Check both for an obstruction before replacing the pump.

Clogged Pump or Hose If the washer won't drain there might be a clogged pump or hose. It's common for small socks or other small clothing items to get into the water drain system and clog the hose leading to the pump or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump in order to remove the article of clothing. Keep in mind that any water in the washer will pour out of the hoses when removed.

Drive Belt If the washer won't drain, should check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't drain properly, if at all.

Lid Switch Assembly If the washer won't drain the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't drain the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Drain Hose If the washer won't drain water check the drain hose. Be sure the hose did not get kinked behind the washer. Also, remove the hose from the pump and check it for obstructions.

Coin Trap If the washer won't drain the coin trap may be clogged. This washer is equipped with a device near the water pump called a coin trap. The purpose of this device is to trap any foreign materials that make their way down the drain. Normally, the coin trap can be accessed through an access panel. It is designed with the homeowner in mind and is normally easy to clean out.

Washer Flashing Error Code ND; door won't open after turning washer off


Hello,

The ND error code means NO DRAIN. ,

The usually reason the door remains locked once the cycle is over is because the filter screen on the drain pump is blocked so not all the water could drain out...the door lock is tied into the pump and until the pump tells the control board that the wate r is out the door will not unlock. This tip i wrote will show ya how to take apart the washer to clean the filter on the pump.

I have a GE Front Load Washing Machine, Model Number WBVH5300. When I turn it on to any cycle, the door locks, the basket turns to balance the load, the door unlocks, relocks and begins to drain. There...


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

If the drain hose is positioned correctly and the door lock assembly is fine then the problem is either the drain pump that is bad and needs replacement or the drain pump relay on the control board is bad and replacing the board will be recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

GE WBVH6240 front load washer runs on 38 min. of the speed wash cycle then stops and door unlocks at 18 min. Tried to restart via the drain and rinse cycle at 18 min., the water pump comes on but no spin...


Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

The first thing I'd suggest is removing the filter in the pump you spoke of and insuring the pump is clear...there may be alot of water though so hopefully you're close to a drain or have some buckets/towels handy.

If that fails to resolve the problem it could be a plugged or faulty pressure switch. Have you run a system diagnostic yet ?

Here's how and the subsequent code meanings...in the event you don't know...

My question is; the washer,model,wbvh6240 has any filter


No , all new front loads have a self cleaning filter. Therefore nothing needs to be emptied or clean. The little trap door in front of the washer is to drain it in case of a power failure when the washer is full of water. .

Door locked and will not open. i ran an empty cycle to see if that would work and it doesn't.....thanks! Margit


IF water is left in machine then door wont unlock, check pump, run drain cycle. If pump runs but doesnt remove water, then check filter at bottom (small door on bottom front) water will come out when this is done. If washer is completely empty of water and door locked then you may access lock release tab from bottom or reaching down from top to lock asm. Then check lock

My GE Front load washer (WBVH6240) has an odor that smells like mildew in it. If the is left closed the odor is really bad. Do you know how to fix this or what is comes from?


run a empty cycle with bleach on whites/ sanitize. clean boot (rubber gasket at door) with bleach or other cleaner inside especially at bottom, make sure 3 holes at bottom are clear.
this may take multiple cycles to rid of odor.
For maintenance, you should wipe excess water from boot after last load, and check lower drain holes. Once a month wipe boot with windex or other. and run cleaner cycle (empty) newer machines have a special clean washer cycle. (6240 doesnt).
Also clean your drain pump filter at bottom front behind access panel.
If boot is really bad , replace.
