My front loader has stopped in the middle of the cycle.
The washer has stopped in the middle of the cycle. There is a small amount of water in the washer. When I try to start the washer it hums but will not start again.
Had 3 pillows in the washer. Cycle stopped but door would not unlock. When started in any mode washer would hum but nothing would happen. Finally removed the lid to disconnect a wire to get the door to unlock. But when reconnected and restarted with nothing but the remaining water in the tub I still had the same result. Humming but nothing else.

A front loader only uses a very small amt of water. That's the point of front loaders. Make sure u only use a very small amt of detergent also. And use white vinegar in place of fabric softener. If washer is slow to fill you can check the filters in the supply lines. Take the water lines off the back of the washer and check the filters in the washer
Is this a new washer or has there been a change in it's functionality?
Front loading washers do use very little water. One must be careful not overload them and also to be sure to use the detergent that is made for them. Can you see the clothes and water sloshing around? Try a small load with HE detergent and make sure to use the very small amount recommended and let me know if you still have a problem.
Not sure if you mean when it is fully off or operating, but if you mean that once it is operating the door won't open, then the following applies...
Once a front loader wash cycle starts, the door on a front loader is physically (electronically) locked until the full cycle ends after spin dry. This is to prevent anyone opening the door and letting all the water out in the middle of the wash cycle, which a lot of people try to do to put in more clothing etc.
You're start/pause button should pause the cycle, cancell should completely cancell. After pressing the Start/Pause within a cycle, the door lock may require time to unlock as indicated by the lock light on the panel.
All manufactures suggest using a high efficiecy detergent. They are specially formulated to keep the suds level low and work well with the low water levels of a front loader. Boxes are marked with an HE on them letting you know they are for high effiency machines. Regular detergents were designed for washers that use many gallons of water.
The answer is YES. Nearly all front loader washers built for consumers are rated as high efficiency because of the small amount of water and electricity they use. This small amount of water, coupled with a wash tub that does not agitate continously, followed by a high speed final spin of 1200 rpms or higher, all equate to an overall energy savings as compared to a conventional top loader. Regular detergent is formulated to be used in a wash tub with a 35 gallon capacity. So, if you use that same detergent in a wash tub that uses 5 to 7 gallons of water (such as yours), you are in effect putting about 5 times the concentration in the washer. This can lead to soap scum build up which causes odors, soap deposits that remain in your clothing and can cause skin irritation, "SUDS" errors that stop the wash program due to too much suds in the wash tub, and premature wear on the drain pump motor and seals. In fact, most front loaders will have a disclaimer added in the owner';s manual that explains this. Most manufacturers will also void the warranty if it is discovered you are using improper detergent. Use HE detergent and pay attention to the label. Some of them are double (2X) and triple (3X) concentrated. I hope this helps you.
something is restricting the draining of unit either in the drain hose, but most likely in the pump remove the bottom panel and pump is in the middle and have 2 5 gal bucket handy to catch the water when you unscrew the cap to the pump ----- unless you use your wet/dry vac to empty the tub this is the best method then only a small amount of water will remain
Your water mixing valve is letting water in the machine between cycles. That is the valve that the hot and cold water hoses connect to in the back. Replace that valve to stop the water build up. Run a periodic cleaning cycle with a generous amount of white vinegar to rid the smell. Or you can buy a prduct called Affresh from a hardware store.
