    My washer is a front loading GE, I believe it is Model WBVH6240. I was also having problems getting it to drain properly, took hose off and no obstructions.

    Now, it's locked with wet clothes inside

Error code E 3

The E3 is a indication of a faulty door lock..Check the door latch and see if there is any thing preventing ti from closing..If not then you would need to replace the doorlock itself...The unit will not fill until the door lock is working properly...You can also try unplugging for 5 minutes..Then plug back in..

Code f22 flashing when i try to start load. the door seems to lock fine

unplug washer and let set 30 min. should reset. plug in, turn on then turn off a couple of times to see if doorlocks and unlocks properly. If not you may need a new switch. That F22 is door lock malfunction. You may need to check hinges and see if they are tight.

How do i deactivate the child lock on the bosch axxis washer


To unlock the washer press and hold 'dry' & 'spin' button. It should unlock now. If this doesn't work then press and hold "end of cycle" button for 5-10 seconds. However, if it is still locked then unplug the washer for 5 minutes and then plug it back. After plugging it back press and hold Start button for 10 seconds to unlock it. Hope this helps...

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!!
