Question about GE WCVH6260FWW

Open Question

You start the washer, the door locks, unlocks,

M/n: WCVH6260FWW s/n: GL204472T
You load the washer,. hit "star", the door locks, unlocks, relocks, tumbles the clothes back & forth, seems to fill with at least a little water, (up to this point it all appears normal), but then that's it! It just sits there, doesn't do any washing. The door later will unlock, but that's it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

I am mechanically inclined, so if there are things I need to check, voltage wise or whatever, feel free to let me know. Thx!

SOURCE: GE Front Loader Washer - Not washing

It sound like a lid switch issue. If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. Look that the switch is not broken or loose. If all is fine, you should replace the switch. Good luck!

I went to the home depot site and they have various videos that explain about the washer and how it works. This made my understanding more clear as to how the washer works. Thanks!

SOURCE: Washer stops at 25min remaining and unlocks then relocks the door

I had to call a repairman for the same problem. Your pump is clogged with lint and debris so the water will not drain or slowly drains. There is a sensor that will stop the cycle if the water is not draining. Open the bottom panel at the front of the machine. (there are 2 or 3 screws) Then on the center right there is circle thing (about 2 inches in diameter) ** Important** place a small flat pan, etc underneath the opening and unscrew the cover. Water and other misc. junk will come out. Reassemble everything and you are set.
Why they don't provide this information in the manual I do not know. Easy repair for a common problem.

probably a bad door switch, if you can take the door or top off and find the wires running to the switch take the wires off theswitch and plug them together by wrapping electrical tape around them and then try the washer. If that dont work may be a bad control board

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call to confirm that it is not something else ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

If the drain hose is positioned correctly and the door lock assembly is fine then the problem is either the drain pump that is bad and needs replacement or the drain pump relay on the control board is bad and replacing the board will be recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I hit the unlock feature and my car relocks if i dont insert key within 30 seconds

thats a system to stop accidental unlocking of your car so if you dont open the door after unlocking it locks itself if you just open the door once it wont lock itself again till you lock and unlock it

GE WCVH6260 stops unexpectantly

Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 5 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped.

Check your drain with a good pour of water from a bucket, it must clear fast. It it doesn't snake it out; the prob lies there 99%. And don't push your exit hose too deep into the standpipe, 4 to 5 inches & not air tight.

My GE Energy Star Front Load Washer is reading 5.9 instead of 59 minutes and not washing clothes. We cleaned the filter and still no luck. Please help.

Cleaned filter, washer still won't run


I think they all start out that way - sort of a self diagnostic check on all its functions (lock, turn one way, turn the other, unlock) before it actually starts washing. After I wait a moment (or longer) it relocks the door and only then does the water start to run and the cycle begin.
I hope I'm not just stating the obvious.
