Question about GE Energy Star WCVH6260F Front Load Washer
Hi. I'm wondering if you have a "sock in the pump" situation there which might be part of the problem?
When you drain the machine and open the filter - I'm talking about the filter at the bottom of the machine where the coins and hairgrips collect - you may just be able to see deep inside the hole a little impellor which is the pumping bit. If you can see it, try to turn it round using a long pointy thing like a skewer or chop-stick. If it will turn, good; if you can see the sock, try to pull it out; and if it won't turn but you can't see the sock then you may need to access the bottom of the machine and feel the flexible rubber hoses that lead to the pump. With luck, you should be able to feel a lump in the hose which will be the problem. The hoses are usually attached by spring clips. Once you have released the clips you should be able to remove and clear the hose. If you are going to do this yourself be sure to disconnect the machine from the power socket and turn off the water first.
Another possibility is that the drain hose itself has a blockage. It's a yucky job but you might be able to get the end of the drain hose out of the house drain pipe, clean it up really well, then put some cloth like a handkerchief over the end before getting someone else to blow down it. That will often make the blockage go back to the filter chamber where you should be able to remove and kill it :-)
Does this help? If not, please give any further details you have and I'll try to think of something else. Good Luck!
