Question about GE WBVH6240F Front Load Washer

3 Answers

Shuts off in middle of cycle

Our Ge washer shuts off at least 6 times during a wash. At no set time, just randomly shuts off. The clothes will be soapy at the end. I will have to rinse and spin several cycles before the soap will be out. At ,most times, the clothes are soaking wet. I will have to repeatedly drain and spin until finally they are ready for the dryer. I only use HE laundrey detergent. What can I do to fix this problem? I will never buy an HE washer ever again. This is a nightmare.

    I have a GE Washer WBVH6240F. It will go into pause mode (start/pause button will be flashing) and will not continue until you hit the button to start again.

I am having the same problem w/ our brand new front loader washer, it pauses constantly, and even when I can get the load to finish, I have to drain and spin atleast 3 x before I can even attempt to put in dryer, at this point it is taking me hours to do one load of laundry!!
Ugh-- Service man is coming tomorrow, so I will share what I learn...

    I found that cleaning the drain worked like a charm. Take the plug out and let the water drain and then take all the lint and gunk that has collected. This is in the little box under the round door. Machine is now working like new after weeks of huge frustration. Thanks for the above comments!!!!

Hello: I have a tenant who is having problems with a GE Spacemaker washer/dryer -Stylemaster # is 622866-A. Here is how she describes the problem: ...it seems as though the washer isn't functioning...


If a spin and drain problem you can pull the front off to see if perhaps a small item (ie. sock or like size item) is stuck between basket and tub or in the drain hose? If it is a wash time problem that would be another direction.

Washer will pause in mid cycle, once you push the pause cycle it will run for a while then will pause again, after about 5 to 6 times a load it will complete.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. You’ll need to clean the filter which is located on the front bottom of the washing machine right below the washer window. It is held up by three screws. Take out the screws and clean the lint. You’ll find in the lint some small clothing, coins and other small things.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Washer stops several times in the middle of cycle


possibly it could be your un-balance switch getting very sensitive to any type of movement of the machine, normally they only actuate during the spin cycle when you have a very off balanced load of clothes
