Check the water supplies at the back, if the valve is opening, and the water is getting into the machine, it can be a faulty water level switch, or membrane sensor, depending on the model.

A faulty or clogged inlet valve can also close few seconds from opening the valve, usually becausu of a faulty solenoid.

If valve and water level switch are ok, then this is a faulty control.

Have valve and water level switch checked first.

    If you energized the pump directly, bypassing the water level switch, and the pump does not close, assuming that you did the test in the proper way, then you have a defective pump.

Possible this seems to be an error. You need to start by check the inlet water flow, check the free flow, if not check the inlet valve or the valve drive. Also check the drain pump and see if there is no clogging, Now switch on and check voltage on the inlet valve, if absent check the main program controller. If water flows check

Whirlpool 6th sense front load washing machine stopping mid cycle. Have to turn power off to reset & restart


I have the same problem. Stops randomly during the cycle and turning off the power for a second re-starts it.

I think it is one of the sensors is faulty - for example the sensor that detects if the load is un-balanced, or if the machine has enough water.

Seems to be a common poblem for these machines.

I'm going to try to find which one later today.

Same problem


Power it off at the mains for 60 mins and then rety. If it still does the same then call in a repair man as it is most likely thatthe main controller board is faulty and needs replacing.
