Question about Washing Machines

I have a GE front load washer model number WBVH6240 that powers up but will not come out of the pause mode. When you press the start/pause button, it beeps twice but stays in the pause mode. Any Ideas??

Pause mode:
The control is stopped by user during the execution of a cycle. LEDs and 7-segment
display on front panel stay on, all loads are turned off. The door is unlocked. The control
board is ready to take user input to either modify, resume, or cancel the cycle.
Cause: Specific failures associated with the control board can initiate error codes E52, E57, E58, E70, and E71
Service test mode begins on page 51 of this SERVICE MANUAL

    No exact answer can be assessed without performing the service test mode.

    Per the instructions on page 51 of the service manual you sent me, I powered the machine down for a few minutes, then powered up and made sure the screen was clear and blank. Then pressed signal, delay, signal, delay and it beeps as though it is dooing something but nothing shows up on the screen and it does not enter into the test mode. It still powers up like normal but when you press the start but it stays in the pause mode and does not lock the door or do anything else

    That must be a stuck button

  • randyswise Jun 02, 2010

    If the button was stuck wouldn't the machine be beeping all the time and not just when I push the button????

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. .

Ge front load washer won't go into rinse cycle.


Check the cold water hose. My brand new machine had this behavior until I discovered a kink in the cold water hose - works great now.

Control Lock is on my front loader.


ok, you are in the model selection part of the service mode. for 6240 I believe the model code is 3 select this and press start. normally to release control lock press and hold small I button by start button.
if model selection in incorrect it can still be corrected. only difference in models is cycles matching the labels. you can tell by the time indication for each cycle if it doesnt look right then check book inside top cover

Ge profile front load washing machine demo mode


I called General Electric and this is the solution:


unplug the machine for 2 to 3 minutes.

Plug it back in the wall

Do not put the power back on.

Open the door

Press the start/pause button 5-6 times

The display will say demo exiting...

This works. Also don't forget to remove the shipping bolts before starting your washing machine!!

Good washing!!

GE Adora front load washer overloaded now won't start


Washers - Resetting Electronic Controls on a Washer

If there is a pause in the washer cycle, the controls will lock up. The pause can occur because of a power failure or it was put in the test mode at the factory.

Also, if the washer was stopped before the cycle was complete or the consumer has pushed the stop/pause button to temporarily stop the cycle and the cycle is not reset. Over a period of 24 hours, the washer will pump out and spin, but will stay in the final spin.

To correct the situation, shut off the circuit breaker for 30 seconds or unplug the washer, then turn the timer knob around and back to any position other than final spin. Verify the water is turned on and restore power. This should resolve the issue.
