    Unplug the unit, open the top and reach down and check the wires on the door lock. Wiggle them around to be sure you have a good connection and plug it back in and try it. Keep me posted!

SOURCE: Whirlpool AWO3761 stuck mid-cycle

The cycle doesn't advanceWhen the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.

  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

    SOURCE: Whirlpool AWM 6100/s - stopping

    Yeah. This is a pump problem. Our machine first did this about 3 months ago. I took the filter plug out and removed about 10 coins from around the pump impeller area! I removed the pump and dismantled it. Unfortunately water was getting in past the seal on the pump spindle. I cleaned it all out and reassembled it. Worked fine till a couple of weeks ago. It has worn out the spindle "bearings" and because of the loose play it gets stuck, intermittently. If you are by the machine when the drain cycle starts , you can give the filter housing a few bangs(take off the circular cover) . The pump will start up .It makes a grumbly sound, as it is knackered. But once started will generally keep going.The answer however is a new pump. And probably a pact with everyone in your household to be more careful not to leave stuff in the clothes you put in the machine. Our washer has got through 2 mobile phones. a packet of bradding nails, a lot of cash, both coins and notes.Various other stuff that i wont mention! The pump gets very hot when it is trying to turn but cant because of debris on the impeller. This will lead to the pump failing after a time.

    The problem has to be in the water distribution (dispenser), that has an electric motor.

    The f13 is a door lock error. You will need to replace the door lock mechanism, could also be the wiring or connections for the lock itself so check that first. Cheap part and easy to replace.

    Washing machine stops mid cycle and lights start flashing

    Drain the water by lowering the hose into a bucket or something and then try it on spin, if it spins o/k then you probably have blocked pump or filter.
    The filter is located in the large black hose that is fastened to the bottom of the drum, remove and clean.
    Hopefully this will solve the problem.
    Plz rate this solution.

    Duet Sport stopped in mid cycle

    Read the Manuel and see if they offer an over ride, first.
    Since you already tried rebooting the machine, I won't suggest that!
    If no go you will need service at this time!
