SOURCE: Where is the pump filter on a front loading ge

The filter (or clean out trap) is located on the drain pump. To access, just follow these steps:

1. Unplug the washer while servicing inside the unit.

2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the screws under the bottom edge of the panel. HINT: Use a couple of blocks of wood to prop up the front feet of the washer to gain better access to the screws. Once the screws are removed the panel should drop down, and then pull off. If the panel becomes stuck, a slight tap on either side will dislodge it.

3. Locate the drain pump. It will be located directly under the wash tub (it is the only pump this washer has).

4. There is an access removal cover on the pump that can be removed to clean out the trap. BEFORE doing this, it is strongly recommended that you remove all residual water from the wash tub & drain line or you will have about a gallon or so inside your washer and on the floor to clean up.

5. Here’s a helpful way of quickly removing the residual water. If you own a wet/dry shop vac, remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum with the shop vac. This will empty the wash tub, pump and drain lines. If you don’t own a shop vac, grab a bunch of old towels and open the access on the pump slowly so that it comes out at a trickle. Allow the towels to soak up the majority of the water. Close the access and stop the water if you need to get additional towels.

6. Open the pump access and remove once you have all the water drained. Check the drain pump for foreign objects and debris. Check the pump impeller and make sure there’s nothing caught in it. Items as small as toothpicks or cotton swabs have been known to stop this pump from working.

7. Clean out the pump thoroughly and reinstall the access cover. Make sure the cover is snug, but do not over tighten.

8. Place the drain hose back in the standpipe.

For reference, you can view some excellent exploded view diagrams of your washer at appliancepartspros.com. If you have any questions about this procedure, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

The front Load machine does not spin the excess water fron the wash on the final rinse. If I set the spin cycle again, it works ?


Most all front load machines have a pump filter. If the bottom front panel is removable, remove and unscrew filter. Clean filter

I have a front loading GE wcvh6260fww that will fill with water, but will not agitate or spin out the water...thus, no washing of clothes regardless of cycle selected. The timer counts down and the water...


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

Locating the filter


based on info provided your ge would be a frigidaire made machine, only filter is at drain pump. to access remove lower front access panel (screws on bottom) pump sits in middle of machine, locate large rubber hose connecting to tub, loosen clamp and pull off. inside is plastic strainer cup, empty and replace. make sure nothing went past to pump, reassemble.

GE wcvh6260fww front load washer won't start. pump makes a noise. The trap had some stuff in it. Cleaned that out. Cleaned the hose behind it out.Still just makes a noise at the pump when I turn it back...


need to check hose that comes off the bottom of the outer tub to pump. if there is trash still in the rubber hose then pump thinks it still needs to pump out.
