Front load washer wcvh6260fww

My front load washer seems to be stuck in the rinse cycle, I had a service man out to check it out and he said that it was stopped mid-cycle and got "confused" when I tried to start another. Of course my luck the washer started up great when he was here, it stopped with 1 min. left, now it won't go to another cycle or start over....he was already gone when it stopped, is there a way that I can reset it? I have tried the unplugging thing and the turning off the breaker, it just remains on the same stage and cycle when power is resored.

    My problem is similuar, the machine will not spin completely. It takes "forever" for the cycle to end. The timer will read 1 minute for an hour. And the clothes are still dripping water when it finally finishes. Just yesterday it started a new symptom, it puts its self on pause. I to have unplugged the machine, it works for the phone.

    Our washer stops with 1 minute remaining too. Sometimes water has leaked into the pedestal drawers. Machine indicates that the door is locked, but this is not the case. Since cycle is basically finished, i remove the clothes. "Door locked" remains lit up even when the power is turned off. Sometimes if i wait long enough, the light goes off, and I can restart the machine, and it will work fine. Most frustrating thing is that this happens only occasionally. I never know if it will take one day or three to do my 5 loads. I had a service appointment, and the guy cleared the memory, which seemed to help for awhile. We also cleared some coins and a key our of pump filter, but the problem seems to be getting worse, not better.

    Same problem. Scheduled third repair call in 18 months of owning this awful machine. Ridiculous. Sometimes clearing the drain helps, but typically have to leave uplugged for hours to reset.

    I emptied the filter and that worked right away.  I am having trouble putting the cover panel back on and was wondering if GE has somekind of retro fit to give better access to the filter that can be used on this model?

The problem may the pump filter which is hidden behind the lower front panel. To access the filter, unscrew three screws at the bottom of the panel and carefully remove the lower front panel. Make sure to unplug the machine. With the panel removed you will see the pump filter. Get a bucket and some towels ready, because when you open the filter, you may get a gallon plus of water coming out. GE failed to put this in the use and care manual for the 6260. But low an behold, GE put an access door and explicit instructions on cleaning the pump filter in the updated 6400.

You may have burned out your washer pump. That is what happened to me. The machine would not drain or spin properly and so I kept pushing the blinking start/pause button to get it going again. Then it finally did not drain at all. I installed a new pump and with the cleaned filter, the machine worked like new. For some, simply cleaning the filter allows the pump to work properly. As the filter gets clogged the pump has to work harder and harder to pump out the water. When this happens the cycle times get extended . One symptom of a clogged filter is the final minute (spin cycle) takes much longer. Obviously this is a "design flaw" that GE "fixed" in the recent version of the 6260.

With punctuation:
It might be the timer. Try another cycle: If it works in another cycle and goes through everything its supposed to, then go back to the cycle it quits in. If it quits again then for sure its your timer. Get a new one.

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!

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.
