Question about GE Energy Star WCVH6260F Front Load Washer
We had a power failure last week and since the washer is not working correctly. At first it just didn't seem to be spinning correctly, now it isn't even agitating during the wash cycle. The clothes just sit there while water pours in and drains out. I have cleaned out the drain filter, checked all hoses, reset the machine(turned off circuit breaker for 30sec)and it still isn't working. Any suggestions? I assume the power failure fried something, was wondering if anyone knew what it may be so I can replace it.
You may have read about the "filter" at the bottom front of the washer, behind the lower panel (held on by 3 screws)...
Just go ahead and open it up, ( I used a large baking pan to catch the water) and then you will be AMAZED at the amount of lint, tape, coins, rocks, etc - that are stuck in there!
Clean it out, and then put it back in - in the correct alignment - and do a new load of wash.
I think it is the main problem for many of the related postings.

I also read somewhere to leave unplugged 48 hours.

Have the same problem. Did everything, cleaned the drains, unplugged and let the memory erase, even did the trouble shooting cycle. Got an error indicating hoses were plugged but it was an old code and after clearing it, didn't get it again. So frusterating. After only 1.5 years, is something wrong with the motor?

May try leaving breaker off 10-15 min 10 secs is too short of time for power to drain
