GE Front Load Washer, stops - light blinks no error codes.
« on: November 26, 2011, 12:14:59 AM »
I have a GE wcvh6800j1ww. It has been running like a dream then I noticed that it wasn't finishing cycles. It will run for 10-15 minutes, you can hear the water filling, then a spin (medium). Then it unlocks and the light on the start/stop button blinks. Also, before this began the softener and bleach dispensers stay full and still is.

I found a posting about running diagnostics unplug 30 seconds, re-power then press signal-delay signal-delay. This didn't do anything. I cannot find a service manual for this machine anywhere.  I never see any error codes.

Can anyone lead me into the right direction?

Thank you  ;)

Up above you is a line of shortcuts. Home Help etc. Go over to downloads and click on that and you will get this page:

Hit the washer section and it goes to this page:
http://appliancejunk.com/forums/index.php?action=downloads

Go down to GE frontloader and click on it:
http://appliancejunk.com/forums/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=311

You gotta sign up for the downloads which cost nothing. The manual will show where the tech sheet location is on your machine as well as give you an idea how to access components and replace them.

Thank you! I saw that manual, but when I didn't see my model I skipped it. My bad.
I did clean out the pump, which was full of a few treasures! I didn't even know I had
to do this. Now I will keep it clean.

The basket clean completed like a pro. Which is weird, since it stops in a regular load. I will
try the test again.

Thanks!

Alright, I have it in diagnostic mode. All test work except t08 and t08 hot and cold water valve test. I get the Error code 22, so I checked the hoses, cleaned out the incoming water screens and now here I am with a load of wet clothes.
Is there anything else I can do? I know the valves work as water runs fine, especially in the basket clean mode.

Yep I always use All HE detergent. I figured out that my machine doesn't have the two diagnostic test that didn't work. I cleaned all the hoses, dispenser and hooked him back up. Well it is working perfectly now. Must of been the build up on the incoming lines. In Florida this is a problem. I will just make sure to clean it regularly.

Thank you!!!  :banana: Very happy now!
