That means that there is a short or a contact inside the machine.

The short can be on power cable, on control panel, on in the internal wiring harness.

Whirlpool 6th sense washing machine


All washing machines have a water level sensor, this can be a tube into the drum that leads up to a switch normally attached to the inside higher up, what happens is the tube gets clogged up with muck and gives a false reading, which needs cleaning out.
Another problem may be your input valve normally a sngle cold water input, the valve can get clogged with limescale and its just slow to switch off even when the power is off. The default is a closed position.
Try switching the machine off at the plug as soon as it finishes, if it starts filling up its the input valve, these can be under twenty pounds on popular auction websites.

Whirlpool 6th sense Finished wash, then noticed strange read out on front with red ? it said f13. Cant find trouble shooting manual,then i turned dial to off position now no power to machine, Changed fuse...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

In my list for Whirlpool, 'F13' stands for 'Dispenser circuit error' - requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest. Sorry ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!
