Too much soap generally causes it to change time. Soap causes motor overload. The control detect over amping and declares a suds error. All machines have this built in though many do not display the error. Items between baskets can also trigger this.

GE WBVH6240 front load washer runs on 38 min. of the speed wash cycle then stops and door unlocks at 18 min. Tried to restart via the drain and rinse cycle at 18 min., the water pump comes on but no spin...


Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

The first thing I'd suggest is removing the filter in the pump you spoke of and insuring the pump is clear...there may be alot of water though so hopefully you're close to a drain or have some buckets/towels handy.

If that fails to resolve the problem it could be a plugged or faulty pressure switch. Have you run a system diagnostic yet ?

Here's how and the subsequent code meanings...in the event you don't know...

Let me know if any of this helps or perhaps you cannot read it, It is all included in the service manual I can send via email if you could use it.

Good luck.

Macmarkus :)

My ge front loader washer model number wbvh6240fww wont't rinse and makes a humming sound during the rinse cycle


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I'm hazarding a guess- the sound MIGHT BE from the machine attempting to drain the water but cannot, therefore not going on to the rinse cycle. Just in case this is the problem follow my general (pre-typed!) guidance notes on filters and motors ;-0)
------------------------------------------------
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Ge front load washer won't go into rinse cycle.


Check the cold water hose. My brand new machine had this behavior until I discovered a kink in the cold water hose - works great now.

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.
