Question about GE Energy Star WCVH6260F Front Load Washer
Washer loads and tumbles once and then empties. Then stops and reads E39 on display.
These are brand new.
Hi and Welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
An E39 code is telling the control assy that the 8 switches for the dispenser are not present. This is usually caused by a disconnected connector on the dispensor. Check to make sure that all the harness wires in the back of the dispensor are connected. To pull the dispensor completely out there is a plastic thumb tab at the very back of the dispenser that must be depressed to get it all the way out so that you can check the harness connections.
On a new machine if you can not do this yourself it would qualify for a warranty repair. Do not be afraid to make that dreaded service call. It will be on GE's tab.
Thanks for using FixYa.

The LR code means "locked rotor" which is just a way of saying the control is not seeing the motor turning.
The image below contains the wiring diagram for this washer as you requested but there are some other things to consider.
Usually when the LR code is displayed the motor has stopped turning for some reason. By definition the LR code means the control has tried to turn the motor but was unable to.
The error code can be caused by to large of load, to much soap/suds in the water or a problem with the spin bearing. The cause of the LR message can be little problem like suds or a major problem like the spin bearing and sometimes it's difficult to pin down. You don't mention in your question if the LR code occurs every load or once a week.
More information on when the error is occurring would be helpful resolving this problem. Try running a rinse and spin cycle empty and see if the washer completes the cycle.
The 2nd image contains the information on how to enter and run a diagnostic cycle which may help pin the source of the problem down. This test completes all functions of the washer is a short time. It will fill, tumble, drain and spin all is a few minutes. At the end of a successful test cycle a PA should display which means "Passed" and is what you want to see.
