    The door will not lock and the washer turns on but will not fill with water or start up, I can hear the motor running but nothing is happening. I pressed th power button and the washer stays on not doing anything.

    My washer goes through the wash cycle then the door unlocks during the rinse cycle complete and will not comlete the wash. This has happened periodically since I bought the washer about three years ago. I have had it repaired twice, but nothing seemed to to be wrong with it when the repairman showed up.

    My door will not latch. The machine wiil turn on howver the door latch is broken and wont pull the door to seal it. It looks like an easy fix. I simply dont know how to remove the front pannel. I also have the dryer stacked on top of the washer. Can I remove the front pannel without unstacking the machines?

    we have the same issue. Our wash cycle will be interrupted in the middle of a cycle. We have to "re lock" or "restart" the washing machine- then it restarts. I cleaned the drain, to no avail. Any suggestions?

I have a FE WCVH6260. Multiple times every cycle the machine door will unlock, and the cycle will stop. It will only restart when the "start/stop" button is pushed again.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Some problems that can occur with your top-loading washing machine are:

There's an error code on the digital display

It doesn't work at all
It won't drain
It doesn't spin
It doesn't agitate
It's noisy
It leaks
It's off balance
There's no hot water
There's no cold water
It's slow to fill
There's no water at all
The clothes are wet after spinning
The cycle doesn't advance
There's no delicate or regular spin or agitate
It's overfilling
It's underfilling
The water temperature is incorrect


Hope this may help;

GE WCVH6260 stops unexpectantly


Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 5 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped.

Check your drain with a good pour of water from a bucket, it must clear fast. It it doesn't snake it out; the prob lies there 99%. And don't push your exit hose too deep into the standpipe, 4 to 5 inches & not air tight.

I think that you need a new control board if it is electronic if it is analog then it may be faulty wireing or since it is a front loader it may be a door sencer problem there are a number of reasons why you just need to find out which one


Hope it helps
