Default GE Front load Locked - Passes Tests & No more error code
Model Number: GCVH6500K1WW   Brand: GE   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My GE frontload was shaking a bit during a spin and wasn`t quite balanced. I leaned on it to prevent the shaking and think I bumped a button on the front panel. The red lock light came on and it sort of completed the cycle but never fully spinned or drained. I had to empty it using the front valve.

I went into the test mode, and got error code 31 (slow drain), which I attribute to overfilling with a substance that doesn`t drain well. I ran every diagnostic, and they were all fine. Draining from filling the water to overflow was fast and smooth. Now I`m getting no error codes, but my washer is still locked and won`t let me do anything. Can I reset it?

Confused...

Well after 2 hours of time wasted with tests, I did a google search for 'GE front load washer control locked' and determined it's a built-in firmware lock. I must have bumped the wrong combination of buttons when leaning on it.

Solution: Press and hold 'Delay Start', THEN press and hold 'Power'. After a few seconds, the lock cleared.
