Hi,

I have the GE Profile: WCVH6260FWW washing machine that was made in 9/2005. I had a service contract for a few years & that has expired (of course). So my clothing has not been getting spun (spinned) fast enough to get the water out to put into the dryer.

These have been my steps so far:

Error codes:
E22
E60
E70

I did a spin test & it does spin up to 999 rpm in the test mode. During a actual cycle it spins (I would estimate) at around 400rpm. Not fast enough to actually get the clothing dried enough to put into the dryer (to wet & heavy).

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Rich

have those Error Codes ever been "cleared" ?
E60 may be the casue of your high-speed Spin problem

E22 Fill timeout - No fill / slow fill
Fill time exceeds 8 minutes.
Ensure manual water supply valves are fully open.
Inspect inlet hoses for kinks/obstructions.
Inspect water valve screens for restriction.
Check water valve functions - t08 for hot water, t09 for cold water.
If above steps do not clear the problem replace solenoid water valve.

E60 Door lock switch failure
Switch failure occurs during lock.
Power down (unplug) machine, wait 30 seconds and retry.
Check wiring and connections between door lock and main control.
Check door lock switches and solenoid.
Replace main control if wiring, switches, and solenoid test functional.

E70 Stuck key Continuous key read for 60 seconds.
Power down (unplug) machine, wait 30 seconds and retry.
Use t04 test to test keys.
Separate control and control housing from front panel - clean and remove foreign debris.
Ensure all keys can be operated freely without sticking.
Replace control panel if actions do not resolve.

What kind of floor is this washer on? Excessive vibration or movement will cause the program to "hunt" for a stable spin speed and wont take it to high speed spin until it does.

Hi,

I just cleared the error codes & am running a 38 minute speed wash to see how it works out.

The washer is sitting on the stand that you can buy with the machine. That is sitting on my concrete floor in the laundry room. It definatly vibrates alot at 999rpm & always has for the last 6+ years I have owned the machine.

The last time the service tech was out, he left a new circuit board - he thought he had to use it, then he didnt use it. I tried to replace it today as a troubleshooting step.

Unfortunately when I had it all plugged back in, the LCD/LED screen did not light up at all. It did beep (when buttons were pressed) & was powered but I was unable to try the replacement board. I swapped the original board back in & it was working properly.

Again, the spin cycle works fine during the test modes (both spin tests). Its just during a cycle it doesnt spin at speed (strange).

The other thing I wanted to mention, is the machine has a 'trap' that unscrews on the front of the unit (when you take some of the metal panel off). Typically I clean it out every few months as my kids like to keep coins & other small objects that go in the laundry, get trapped in the trap & I usually can tell because my laundry isnt dry (due to it being clogged).

I have noticed that after a load, the trap, while it doesnt have anything in it that would cause it to hold water, is full of water. Almost like its not draining out.

I wonder what thats about?

Thanks,
Rich
