Question about Washing Machines
Hi, Have an odd problem with my washer dryer (Whirlpool AWZ612). If running on 30/40 degree programs it works fine, however if run on a higher temperature wash then it has an error towards the end of the wash (but does not go through complete cycle)- Error message E 13 and the door remains locked. am able to get clothes out if turned off at the wall for a while. After some googling I believe this is a door lock error however am confused as to why this only happens on hot wash. Any ideas to fix this?
This happens to me as well when I use drying. After using the machine, when I want to reuse it I get this error "E13". Somehow I manage to make the machine pass the error...
Though I am able to open the door. Here is how I do it (be careful if there is a lot of water in the machine):
- turn off the machine by switching the program knob to "Off";
- wait a few seconds (5 to 10 seconds or so);
- turn the program knob to any program (e.g. Cotton 30);
- the machine will do several clicking sound;
- one of the clicking sound is actually the door unlocking, at that moment open the door;
- turn the knob to "Off".
Hope that helps.

Whirlpool did a recall on this problem here is there number try this first. Whirlpool 1-800-253-1301
On a number of ranges this can mean a number of things, the most common being a failed ERC(EOC, Clock assembly)or a faulty touchpad. Firstly if you are using a recent Maytag range it may pay to test the oven sensor as described above as this may cause an F1 error if faulty (may apply to some other ranges as well) this is not a common cause but is worth discounting. To check the ERC and touchpad
