Question about GE Energy Star WCVH6260F Front Load Washer
Yes, I pulled the pump and did not notice anything clogged. The impellar is somewhat free, but I noticed the after trying to run the machine the motor is super hot. You can't touch the housing. I took it off and it stayed hot for nearly an hour or so. I went ahead and ordered it. No one locally has it or has ever ordered one. I contacted 3 or 4 appliance parts center. I am hoping that the washer doesn't cycle properly, because there is some sort of water level sensor sending signal that washer has water. I drained the water and still can get it to cycle. Expensive experiment $137.00 for pump. I noticed many people seem to have the same problem with this machine. My wife wanted a front loader, didn't want to spend the big bucks so I bought used from a couple moving. She will never let me here the end of it, until I get this fixed.
Sweet tip, goingbamboo - exact same motor, different housing, only $60 shipped by fedex ground from repairclinic.com.
so i had the exact same problem. two newborn socks, one which appeared (smelled) like it was there for quite some time, 3 quarters, and some odd lint. for the life of me i can't figure out how the socks get from the drum down the tube!
word of warning - if there is visible water in the drum, there can be a *lot* of water when you unscrew the filter cap.
oh, and we have also been noticing rips in our clothes (like another poster). worthless machine.

If you should run into problems again with that pump, there is a way around the $137.00 replacement cost. You can order the pump for one of the top loader machines (here is a part # WH23X10013). They use the same motor. There are 3 screws to remove the motor. The top loader setup is considerably less expensive. And if you trust ebay, you can get the motor for $45 shipped to your door in about 3 days.
For mine, the issue was one of my son’s newborn socks made its way into the drain and clogged the filter. I have had this machine 2 years and love it. This is the first problem we have had.
