Whirlpool AWZ 612 E13 Error code on hot wash

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

  1. Disconnect the power
  2. Gain access to the back of the ERC
  3. Disconnect the ribbon cable that connects the ERC to the touchpad
  4. Check nothing will short when power is reconnected
  5. reconnect the power and switch on
  6. Watch for F1 and listen for the beep
  7. If you get the F1 and the beep this means the fault is with the ERC and it will need replacing
  8. If after 30 mins you do not see the F1 error and hear the beep, replace the touchpad

SOURCE: Whirlpool Cabrio Dryer 3 months old

"AF" is a restricted air flow condition. You say you've only had your dryer for 3 months, but have you ever cleaned the ducting? You need to check the lint screen> after every load, AND you need to perform routine cleaning of the dryer venting (inside the dryer, as well as the vent line from the dryer to where it exits the house) about every three months. If left in this condition, the dryer heating circuitry will eventually failed and/or you could cause a fire hazard. An easy way to check to see if you have a clog somewhere is to remove the dryer vent hose from the back of the dryer. Run the dryer to see if you have air flow coming from the back of the unit. The air should be about 140 degrees F and forceful. Check to see if the error comes back. If everything runs fine, then you know the problem exists in the vent line between the dryer and where it exits the house. If you still have problems, you will need to unplug the dryer, remove the back panel and inspect the interior for clogs. At least you have a dryer that warns you when the air flow become restricted or blocked. Most dryers> will continue to run until they overheat or fail. I hope this information is helpful. Post back with your comments and let me know

Whirlpool dryer bad heating element AGAIN


Hi Warren Fink
Try this solution to your problem

A vent clogged with lint can cause the dryer to overheat.
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on air fluff/no heat, and go outside to verify there's plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.

My Whirpool awz612 washer/dryer is not drying. I have cleaned the drum, and drained the excess water from the machine. What else can I do to fix the fault?


Hi,

If your
dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

Dryer takes 3-4 cycles to dry clothes


Hi first are you sure your heating element is good and working is the dryer getting hot in side when you open door to check clothes.if they are and you are sure the duct work is clear and no clogs, you might try this I have heard this from other people take your lint filter out and wash good with hot soapy water they say that after so long using dryer sheets this filter can get a invisible coating on it.
Hold the filter under water and see if it will holds water I know it sounds crazy but I have heard it from more than one source.
