No , all new front loads have a self cleaning filter. Therefore nothing needs to be emptied or clean. The little trap door in front of the washer is to drain it in case of a power failure when the washer is full of water. .

    OMG Dork! Obviously you have never cleaned the trap out! NECESSARY to protect your water pump!!! Don't clean it you will be replacing the water pump after something eventually gets through.
    I have found quarters, bobby pins, drum Keys, a little screwdriver, bottle cap and a darn spoon!!!!!
    I don't empty mine often because mine is the first models where you have to take the bottom front panel off to get to the trap. When I do clean it I have to deal with water all over the floor. Does not mater what I have tried the pump lines hold a bucket of water :(

Door gasket leaking


My GE washer model wcvh6400j0ww was leaking too. The repair person thought the same thing the gasket. It turned out to be the water in-let pipe (WH41X10118 and you will need seal WH41X10119) and not the gasket. He ordered the gasket and took machine apart to replace and found cracked pipe. Take your machines front off and make sure it is the gasket leaking. Good Luck,

GE front loading washer WBVH6240 leaks during fill cycle..solutions??


I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old
man who has been making his own repairs for about
50 years. Therefore the washer ID doesn't mean
much to me. It's been about 55 years since I had
experience with front load washers. However I can
suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where
they have very good trouble shooting and repair
information on front loaders. I think you'll find what
you need there. Good luck with it.

My GE Front load washer (WBVH6240) has an odor that smells like mildew in it. If the is left closed the odor is really bad. Do you know how to fix this or what is comes from?


run a empty cycle with bleach on whites/ sanitize. clean boot (rubber gasket at door) with bleach or other cleaner inside especially at bottom, make sure 3 holes at bottom are clear.
this may take multiple cycles to rid of odor.
For maintenance, you should wipe excess water from boot after last load, and check lower drain holes. Once a month wipe boot with windex or other. and run cleaner cycle (empty) newer machines have a special clean washer cycle. (6240 doesnt).
Also clean your drain pump filter at bottom front behind access panel.
If boot is really bad , replace.

Won't Rinse


Had this same problem with my GE WBVH6240 Front Load Washer which we have had for about 5 years. After performing surgery on it; cleaning out the drain hoses, cleaning out the filter several times, checking the operation of the pump, checking the water pressure coming in to the washer, finally narrowed it down to the water valve. Ordered a new valve through Appliance Parts Pros. Got it in 2 days through regular shipping, installed it in less than 10 min, ran it through a quick wash cycle and everything works 4.0. Don't know which parts you replaced but this fix which I eventually got to only cost $50. Saved me hundreds and/or the possibility of buying a brand new washer. Hope this helps.

Disconnect power to machine,
Drain all the water you can.
Remove the bottom access panel ( 3 screws on bottom plate)
open the large plastic filter in center
have a tray and towels to catch the water,
remove all clogging material,
look in with a light and turn the pump , it should turn freely.
