SOURCE: GE front load washer, wbvh5200j1ww. no power.

the door can be manually unlocked by removing the bottom front panel, reach up and there is a pull tab on the lock mechanism. it is a crime that they do not post this online or in the manual, and let folks ruin their clothes.

power problem was a part called the "FILTER" it is where there power cord plugs into, something along the lines of part number 201. cost is $85 plus tax. service man has not seen one of these ever go before.

Check your 2 in 3 out water valve part# WH13X10029, this responsible for filling of water. By the way wash cycle will not run, until washer sense enough water.

In order for the pressure switch to work it has to get pressure.
The switch is located near the top of the right side panel and can be seen by removing the top cover. There is a small pressure hose that leads to the switch and should be checked for crackes or chafing. There are three round sponges on this hose to keep it from rubbing on the moving parts. I had to replace mine after just over a year so I used a heaver hose with the same inner diameter. I used a 3/16 fuel line from Princess Auto and two new 3/8 stainless hose clamps.

Front right would most likely be the discharge pump. Here's a diagram:

Sounds like you could have a pump problem or a loose hose. First, go ahead and clean the drain pump filter (as per instructions in the Use & Care Manual). Screw it back in tightly to see if that resolves the issue.

If not, check this posting for how to run a diagnostic test: http://www.fixya.com/support/t9576766-found_small_part

Test T02 will show you the most recently encountered codes. At the bottom of that posting is a link to the code definitions with problem resolutions: http://www.fixya.com/support/t9556917-ge_model_wcvh6800j_error_code_04

If you don't get any error codes and all tests run correctly, open the front access panel and see if you can figure out where the leak is originating from (To remove the panel: undo three screws and lift from the bottom).
Please post back once you either have codes or have located the leak source...then we can troubleshoot more.

Not enough water supply F8E1 in a front load washer


Long fill error code if you have flood safe water hoses replace with regular hoses, this may sound stupid but I have seen this in the field make sure water is turned on, other possible reasons bad inlet valve or no power to valve from control, front load washers are notorious for rubbing a hole in the tube that goes to the pressure switch this switch is what tells the control to output power to the inlet valve also make sure the drain hose hasn't fallen to the floor. Quickest way to eliminate some things start with an empty washer after door locks unlocks and locks again the basket will rotate a few times then water should enter the machine fill to a level in the the basket that is barely above the bottom holes in the bottom then stop this eliminates control and inlet valve , if unit continues to fill and you get water half way up the door glass probably a hole in pressure switch tube I very seldom see a pressure switch go bad hopes this helps.

Water will not drain


Hi,
Draining problem is very common in Bosch washers. However, it is very easy to fix.

1) Remove the white circular plate, located on the bottom left. Push a small screwdriver or needle through it and simultaneously rotate the plate clockwise.
2) Open the drain valve. Rotate the circular black handle counterclockwise. Beware of residual water.
3) Clean it. Re-assemble in reverse order.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

My GE Profile top load washer won't hold water


Your drain line is too low or has a blocked air gap. Take the drain line out of the drain. Hold it up high and turn the washer on to fill. If it fills and begins agitation,repair the drain line problem.

Washer won't wash


Hi!
When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

GE front loading washer not draining water


Something must have gotten into the drain pump. You drop the fromt panel on most of theses and open the pump sump, get the coin or whatever out of it.
