Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

2 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

Re: paused. now stuck. cannot open, turn off, etc.

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

Door lock is on and dont know what button to make it go off

If you can't pause the machine by hitting start and have it unlocked, turn the washer off then try unplugging the power cord, waiting a few minutes, and then plugging it back in. It should reset the lock timer.

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.

My washer had 1 minute left before the spin cycle was complete.

Push and hold the START button for three seconds if you want it to finish off that last minute.


Push and hold the PAUSE button for three seconds to stop the cycle.

Ge profile front load washing machine demo mode

I called General Electric and this is the solution:

unplug the machine for 2 to 3 minutes.

Plug it back in the wall

Do not put the power back on.

Open the door

Press the start/pause button 5-6 times

The display will say demo exiting...

This works. Also don't forget to remove the shipping bolts before starting your washing machine!!

Good washing!!

Door locked, start pause light flashing

I also have the same problem. I have got it to work by unplugging for a day and night. When I plug it in the next day it works like new for a couple days and then back to the same old "door locked" problem when the door isn't locked........BIG HEADACHE!!!!

Pause mode stuck

Is the door firmly closed? Open the door and close it firmly. If the pause button is really stuck, you will need to repair/replace the board.

Frigidaire Front Loading Washer, ATF6000ES stuck on pause mode - HELP!

I fixed this myself and it only took about 5 minutes. The problem is the door latch needs to be reset, which requires unplugging it's three electrical connections. This has to be done inside the washer outer seal, but it is easy to get to. First remove the outer ring that holds the seal on. Next remove only the side of the seal closest to the door latch (again only the outer seal needs to be undone). With this done remove the two screws holding the door latch in place (inside). Remove the latch, unplug the three connectors, plug them back in then reassemble everything. When all is back in place hit "cancel" and it should be good to go.
