Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

3 Answers

Paused. now stuck. cannot open, turn off, etc.

My machine was running and I had to hit the pause button for a few minutes. I went back to turn the machine back on to finish the cycle and now the clock just blinks at me with how many minutes are left, the machine is trying to drain although there is no water left in it, I hit the pause button again and again and nothing happens, none of the other buttons do anything, the door is locked and cannot be opened. The only thing I can do at this point is unplug it to keep the machine from continually trying to drain. Can the machine be reset somehow to get everything back in order? Tahnks

    Update for anyone else who may need to know....
    It appears it was a control board issue. The repair technician was out yesterday and it seems one of the connections was not in tight enough. Haven't used the machine enough yet to know for sure if the problem is fixed but it does seem to be. For the do-it yourselfers -- you have to take the top cover off of the machine to find the connection board. Make sure all of the connections are securely in place.

Unpluggin the machine is pretty much the only way to reset it.Leave it unplugged for a couple hours if that doesnt work its most like a control board issue

Why does my Fisher and Paykel DD605SS stall part way through wash cycle?


I'm not sure of this, because the manual does not have an error with a E. I can fine error F4. It says it encountered a faulty temperature sensor or element. If the heating element burned through the night you circuit breaker tripped (Sure it was not the ground fault circuit breaker?), then the dish washer can't heat the water, so the program can't continue. The program stops (waits) till the chosen temp is reached. If the water stays cold the program can't go on.
So also check the heater in the machine. I hope you are aware everything in the machine runs on high (or at least dangerous) voltages, so be careful not to work in the machine when it is still connected.

Dryer is stuck on paused and won't spin. Turned off and re-started but the motor ran for a few seconds and then went to paused again.


Good Morning Jill,

So I see that you were drying bath mats and the dryer got stuck in a "Pause" mode and even if you cancel and restart it shows "Pause" on the display. I would suggest resetting the dryer. What you will need to do is either unplug it or you can shut the power off at the circuit breaker. When you do this you will need to leave it off for at least 2-3 minutes. Cut the power back on, start any cycle. If you are still having trouble not being able to start the dryer and "Pause" showing, I suggest you either contact the manufacturer or your local authorized technician. I hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Lg dryer dle7177 cutting off during cycle


I had a tumble dryer that stopped working and after much investigation it turned out to be an internal thermostatic switch and lots of fluff around the internal filters. ( Mine had 2 of them 1 would cut the heat and kick back in when the temperature dropped and the other one would completely cut all power rendering the drier non usable until cicuit breaker thermostat was replaced. The reason they cut out is to prevent overheating and possible fire. When the thermostat gets to certain temperature it breaks the circuit. Apparently you shouldn't stop the drier until it has completely cooled down as there will be too much heat which could cause a fire, which is why most drier cycles have 10 minutes of cool/ non heated air at the end. So in conclusion I would take all the filters out and give them a good clean and try to avoid opening the door while there is still a lot of heat in the drier. I'm not sure if this will help but its a starting point.

I have an Electrolux EWD1477. I have been away for four months and I'm having problems with it. I set to do the quickwash30 program and press start, you hear the clicks, it might put some water in then...


My EWD1477 was doing this a year ago and I fixed it. Then it started doing it again a month ago and I seem to have cleared it again.

Firstly, remove the drain hose from where it is inserted into a laundry sink hole to make sure it is not blocked or sealed in with sludge.

Secondly, make sure the machine is empty of water and clothes and then turn the machine to off with the Program Selector Dial. Then turn off the power at the socket and remove the power plug and leave for five minutes.

Step 1: put the plug back in and turn the power back on.

Step 2: turn the selector switch to the right (Whites/Intensive). The green light of the Start/Pause button should be flashing and the green lights on for Prewash/wash, Rinses and Spinning. Don't press any other buttons or change any other settings.

Step 3: press the Start/Pause button and wait for the machine to empty any excess water. Press it again immediately after you hear water flowing into the machine OR two audible clicks. The machine is now in pause mode with the green light of the Start/Pause button flashing. Only the green light on the Prewash/Wash button should be on. Leave it in pause mode for 30 minutes and then press the Start/Pause button to recommence the cycle.

Step 4: If the Start/Pause button begins flashing, water stops flowing into the machine and the three green lights mentioned above are back on, turn the Program Selector Dial back to off, wait 10 seconds, and repeat the process above.

Step 5: If when you then turn the Program Selector Dial to Whites/Intensive and hear the two audible clicks, immediately press the Start/Pause button to set the machine in pause mode. Wait 30 minutes. Then press the Start/Pause button to recommence the cycle.


Hopefully the cycle will run without a problem.

Machine wont restart after inadvertantly hitting the stop button instead of the pause button


I believe the final solution was to unplug the machine for several minutes. When it was plugged in again I hit one of the wash cycle buttons and after a minute or so the button indicating that the door was closed properly lit up and then the machine resumed it's cycle.
