Taming the Beast: How to Easily Reset Your GE Front Load Washer
Resetting your GE front load washer can be a daunting task, but with a few simple steps, you can quickly get your washer back in working order.
If your washer is giving you an error code, the first step is to identify the code. All GE front load washers have a digital display that will display error codes when something is wrong. For example, an error code of “F01” indicates a motor issue, while “F07” indicates an issue with the door latch. Once you know the code, you can use the owner’s manual or the internet to troubleshoot the problem.
If the error code is not displayed and the washer will not turn on, the first step is to reset the circuit breaker. If the circuit breaker was tripped, resetting it should solve the problem. If it was not tripped, you may need to unplug the washer and then plug it back in to reset it.
If the washer is still not working, you may need to reset the main control board. To do this, locate the power button on the control panel. Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. This will reset the control board and the washer should start working again.
Another issue that can cause your washer to malfunction is clogged filters. The drain filter is located at the bottom of the washer and should be checked periodically. If it is clogged, it can cause the washer to malfunction. To clean the filter, unplug the washer and then remove the filter. Use warm, soapy water to clean the filter and then re-install it.
Finally, if the washer is still not functioning, you may need to reset the computer. To do this, press and hold the “Start/Pause” and “Signal” buttons at the same time for 3 seconds. This will reset the computer and the washer should start working again.
Resetting your GE front load washer can be a tedious task, but with a few simple steps, you can quickly get your washer back in working order. Start by identifying any error codes, then reset the circuit breaker, main control board, and computer if necessary. Be sure to check the filters periodically and clean them if needed. With a few simple steps, you can have your washer back in working order in no time.
