MY washer fills, sometimes stops without completing the wash, sometimes it shows a completed cycle but the clothes are too wet to dry, sometimes during a cycle it will turn off with the door locked.


Sounds like a draining problem - Check the drain filter isnt blocked, if fitted before doing anything else - remove the filter and clean it. Then, can you hear the drain pump running on the drain cycle (drum not moving but pump should be) - a chug chug chug noise and water should be flowing down the waste pipe. Door WILL lock if the machine is full of water or is slow to drain - to prevent floods. Do NOT force the door open without draining - you will only break the door handle.
If water not flowing on drain - and filter clear - may be blocked pipe, sock stuck in sump hose - coin or counter flipped on edge in a pipe and blocking it - something like any of the above. Clothes too wet to dry is classic partially blocked drain pipe symptom - or spin aborted as drum out of balance.

Tip

Allways clean your filter on your washer


by cleaning your pump filter at leased once a month will make your washer perform better and last longer. it will stop problems accuring such as (door will not open ) (the machine will not spin on final spin ) (wet cloths) (un even loads) (dirty cloths) (smell & mould ) another good tip is dry off the rubber door seal after use and sprinkle a little talk powder on it this will stop it staining with mould.

Clothes come out musty


I would put in some bleach and clothes that can handle it without damage and run a wash cycle. Leave the door open when you are done using the machine, or at least un-latched. There are commercial products, but bleach will do the same thing. You have stuff growing on the gizzards inside the drum, and bleach will likely kill them. They like dark & humid places.. guess what... that's your washer with the door kept latched.

check the pump to see if anything is clogged in there or you could have a bad pump,open the door and look around the opening and you'll see the full model number.also if it stops at the rinse cycle does it fill with water and the water is in there but doesn't drain or are the clothes just sitting there wet,because when in rinse the machine just uses cold water and if the valve is clogged or filling slowly the washer will stop after like 6 minutes,does any error codes come up?you can try to start the washer just on cold water and see if the water fills slowly or if it comes in normally,if it comes in slow most likely that will be your problem,if it is the pump you can get a shop vac and suck out the water from the drain hose,get it as close to the floor as you can and it will work better,then remove the center part of the pump,the clean out and see if it's filled with stuff,turn it slowly,when water comes out vac it up with shop vac until it stops.hope this helps you out.

Making humming noise power not on door locked


turn off the unit.use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose this will remove all the water then you can turn it back on and should be able to open the door to get your clothes out.
after all thatis done you need to check the drain pump and make sure there is nothing blocking the pump.other likely problems are the door lock mechanism is bad or the main control board

If you can drop down drain hose to floor level then drain into bucket this will allow you to open the door . Sounds like coin in the pump /remove the filter and clean check pump blades are free...Good luck

The door won't open after a cycle...and all the clothes are soaking wet..even after 2 spin cycles it still has a lot of (soapy) water at the bottom..Help!!


the most common problem is a blocked or restricted drain pump.You can use a wet/dry Shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose to remove all the water.
Once the water is removed then your door should unlck and you can remove all the clothes.
after that you need to look at your drain pump remove the hoses be sure to check the hose that comes down from the bottom of the tub to the drain pump and look for any obstruction also check your drain pump inside there could be something stuck in it.

Door wont open laundry stuck in there now since Friday night...This product S-----!! NOT TO MENTION ALL THE MOLD ISSUES ALREADY...


you can use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose to remove the water.
if the water comes out fairly rapidly you may need to replace the drain pump.

once the water has been removed you can open the door and remove the clothes.after everything is removed you need to remove both the hoses from the drain pump and look in it for any thing that will stop it from turning and or blocking the drain pump.

GE model WHDVH626FWW Front load washer won't run, can't open door


your drain pump is likely clogged,and is equipped with a clean out port. remove lower cover by 3 phillips screws on bottom front. you see the drain pump up front to the right. If there is a lot of water left in machine then have bucket/pan avail and plenty of towels. wet dry shop vac helps. you can open door and remove clothes from here. reach up on right side to where the latch is on inside (you have to go by feel) and find small round pull tab on bottom of latch/lock asm, and pull down, this will unlock door. carefull of water level when opening door.
to fix problem, unscrew cap on pump asm. water will pour out, and a tray will slide out with debris clogging pump. look inside housing for remaining ****. using finger check impeller area on right..
reassemble. machine should work perfect now. Pump is designed to be cleaned out and will not void warranty. newer machines have access port cut in panel for this clean out area.
