    We cleaned the trap underneath the tumbler, but it still won't drain. I can't seem to shut it off either- the "door locked" light remains on despite efforts to shut it off. Any suggestions?

    After a cycle the door locked light just stayed on and the door won't open. I don't know how to take the panel off to reach that lever.

    My GE Energy Star Front Load Washer is reading 5.9 instead of 59 min. We removed the panel under the door and cleaned the filter and still no luck. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

    Same problem. Take off the bottom plate and reach up under the washer on the right side. You can pull the locking mechanism down and open the door. I thought I was buying a nice new wonderful washer. Not!

We had the same problem on our GE GBVH: door lock light would go on and off, machine wouldn't run or would get to 1m left in cycle and quit, leaving door lock light on - but door was actually unlocked. Solution was to replace door lock mechanism (140$ part) and so far (1 week) seems to be working. Corrosion in old door mechanism makes me think water was getting in during cycle, especially since problem would usually occur right after the completion of a load of laundry. Before we replaced the part we also unplugged machine and left door open when not in use.

Plug in the washer and it starts humming even if the door is open or its off

Some GE front load washers go directly into a pump out mode after any power failure (or if plug is pulled). This is to keep it from possibly over filling during a cycle restart.

No water no Spin

Check your 2 in 3 out water valve part# WH13X10029, this responsible for filling of water. By the way wash cycle will not run, until washer sense enough water.

Our front load washer stinks like stale water inside. How do we clean it out?

the only way is to run a empty load of warm water w/heavy bleach after running cycle wipe door boot/gasket out with like kitchen cleaner w/bleach making sure you get in between the tub and the front panel on the boot. then you have to ALWAYS leave the door open to dry. TRY THIS AND LET ME KNOW
