Question about Whirlpool AWM5145/2 Front Load Washer
When i set the timer/programme it just continues to go round and round and only works when it wants to.
SOURCE: bosch 1400 exxcel
The machine thinks the drain is blocked.. check the pump and outlet pipe for buildup of dirt.
I noticed holding start down for several seconds whilst powering the machine on, then turning it off / then on again would clear the machine's idea of where it was during a program. Does this affect the error code you're seeing?

these machines will do this if the timer dial has been moved during a cycle, they have a memory chip on the main circuit board.
they also do this if the machine has a fault with the exception that they dont stop, the doorlock light flashes and the timer just keeps clicking.
try setting the timer to a dot on the settings then switching the power on, the doorlock light will flash a few times, turn off again select program then switch back on, machine should now be reset and work ok, if not then count the flashes of the doorlock light as this indicates a fault code.
hope this helps

When the machine is on, but not running, press and hold the "pre-wash" button. After a few seconds it will begin that beep noise, keep holding it in until the beep volume goes down and finally stops completely (5-10 secs). Once the beep has stopped, release the button and voila, no more annoying beeps at the end of your cycle.
To restore the end of cycle notification (beep) do the same thing as described above, but release the button earlier while the beep is still going.

If this is a Whirlpool manufactured TOP LOADER washing machine, a no spin problem can have several causes. Most commonly, this is caused by either a lid switch malfunction or a broken motor coupling. The following link explains how you can diagnose the problem and repair it yourself:
Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions. I have included parts resources and instructions on how to replace each part as well.
