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

Tips for a great answer:
"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

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.
