Question about GE Energy Star WCVH6260F Front Load Washer
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.
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.

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.
