Question about GE Energy Star WCVH6260F Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Sparking! I forgot to mention with my GE Front Load Wash Machine problem of banging, violent shaking and movement, we also have sparking I can see while the machine is running. I don't believe consumers should have to adjust to the machine to make it work and try to find solutions on blogs-its a GE problem and needs to be resolved with a permanent solution.

When we first got our washer home, we had a very scary problem with it "walking" across the floor on the spin cycle. We discovered that we didn't remove the " shipping bolts" They are located on the underneith of the washer. No one told us we had to do that when we purchased the washer.

The drum shakes violently and is very loud during spin cycle

There are 2 shock absorbers/springs attached to the drum. If one of them breaks it will cause a loud banging noise when you wash heavy loads. This is an easy fix. The part is about $22.00 and it is accessed throught the front bottom panel.

Samsung P801 Front Loader shakes violently during spin cycle.

When the washer goes into spin cycle it is suppost to start at a slow speed and continue to increase speed (to a maximum of 800 RPM) as the water leaves the clothes. Your washer is going directly to 800 RPM which causes the washer to shake and stop giving you the E4 code. The control board that controls this speed increase must be replaced.

Disconnect power to machine,
Drain all the water you can.
Remove the bottom access panel ( 3 screws on bottom plate)
open the large plastic filter in center
have a tray and towels to catch the water,
remove all clogging material,
look in with a light and turn the pump , it should turn freely.
