Question about Whirlpool WFW9050XW Washer Front Load White
I have a whirlpool WFW9050XW , but without an LED display. On diagnosis, It blinks 8 times then one. In any wash cycle, it fills about halfway up with water, all the while turning, and then it stops and beeps. I press power and it drains and stops, then I do a rinse and spin, and that does that. However, I still don't like that it stops. I checked the hoses were right, drain height and air, the washer is level, the LED indicates the door is locked at the beginning of the cycle. I pressed my leg against the door just before it stopped to make sure it wasn't a door problem. I think it has something to do with it not being able to tell when to stop filling and start washing.

The symptoms you describe are typical of a broken lid switch. The lid switch is located under the washer top on the right hand side. It is activated through a slot by a small plastic piece on the lid called a "lid strike". Make sure the lid strike is still installed and not broken. Make sure the lid switch itself is not loose, as well. There are two mounting screws along the washer tub opening that hold it in place. If the screws become loose the switch will not make contact with the lid strike when the lid is closed. If you need to replace the switch or lid strike, the parts are available at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Washer Top and Lid" heading on the next page. The lid switch is listed as item number 22 (part #3355806) and the lid strike is listed as item number 16 (part #358684). Both parts combined will cost you about $30. If you have further questions and/or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

hellow my name is joyce and It sounds like you have a issue with your cut off valve that controls the water flow to your machine in between cycles, this is controled by your timer switch you may want to call technichian to repair. sounds like the only problem you have with the timer is on the rinse cycle not the wash cycle, but it defently needs to be fixed. if I can help you find a repair person please let me know.
thanks you and let me know if I can further assist you.

i also had the same problem, and it ended up being the coupler. It was not hard to replace, it cost me about 19.00. I didn't follow full recomende instructions. I tipped the washer backwards. Removed the drain pump and the motor itself. Then I removed the old coupling and placed the new one. The washer is working like new...
