Question about GE Energy Star WCVH6260F Front Load Washer
Yesterday, the machine, continued to try and pump water out during the load. This lasted for about 1/2 hour. I unplugged it for fear the pump would burn out, but then the door wouldn't unlock. Finally, after a few hours it unlocked. The clothes were still soaked, and there was water in the drum. What can I do??
Why does the washer have a smell coming from it and it seems like the drum is out of balance

Remove front panel under door with the three screws. Right in front is a filter. Put a pan are something to catch about a gallon of water. Screw cover to left and pull out the filter. Clean out was has been trapped and put cover back hand tight.

SOURCE: It won't drain...
From your description, you could have a problem with one of several things.. You can run a few tests to determine the most likely area that is causing your problem ,,, If possible, can you unhook your drain hose from the drain and use a barrel to cycle water into ? (You can stop the washer any time to empty the bucket... Anyway, try running a wash load ( without clothes) and monitor the water flow... when the washer is pumping water out, you should have a fairly high stream flowing into the bucket. Using a bucket will rule out a clog in your house drain line...and provide d irect means to see how well the system pumps.. If the water is only trickling out during the drain process, then you have one of sveral problems.. The pump is clogged or defective, the supply from the drum to the pump is clogged and not allowing the water to be drawn into the pump or the outflow tube from the pump is clogged or crimped. Any of these problems will require you or a service person to gain access to inside the washer and diagnose the problem. I had a similar problem on an LG front loader and it was the pump itself.. One thing to remember is to use HE detergent for these front loaders.. and a very small amount of that.. Hope that helps...

Tips for a great answer:
If suds are detected continuously by the pressure switch during the drain or spin phases, the washer will fill 4 liters of water and during 5 minutes the unit will rest without tumbling, the water will be drained and it will try to spin or drain again.
• If too much detergent was used:
- Run the unit through a RINSE/SPIN cycle.
- Run a NORMAL cycle without adding any detergent,
• This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check drain pump.
7. Check the pressure switch.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle.
