Washer stopped in the middle of a cycle

My whirlpool LSB6200pq has stopped in the middle of a cycle. I read another forum and and it pointed to a bad timer. Does it need to be drained first and then restarted? I have replaced the pump before because of a leak so I ruled that out. Could the drain hose be blocked? Thanks for your asssistance

Re: washer stopped in the middle of a cycle

I wouldn't be so quick to replace the timer as those rarely go bad. Start simple and check the lid switch. On whirlpoos they sometimes shift position and dont always close when the lid is closed

Whirlpool washing machine style master #907675 just stop working in the middle of the wash cycle and won't start again.

Susan, First make sure there is still power to the outlet washer is pluged into, may have tripped the breaker/fuse. Could be something as simple as a loose wire/plug, lid switch to something worse like control board. Have a good Tech. diagnose and estimate repair. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Why does my whirlpool frontloader stop in the middle of a cycle and read f 02

Repairing the F02 error code can usually be done without ordering parts. Tools needed to repair your whirlpool Duet F02 error code are towels and a quarter inch socket.
Tip the washer back at a 45 degree angle. On the bottom panel there are three or four screws, with the screws removed the panel will slide down and off. With the lower access panel now removed you will have access to the washers drain pump clean out.
With the water already bailed from the washer you can twist the filter head counter-clockwise to remove. Twisting the filter head counter-clockwise will loosen filter so it can be pulled out.
With the filter out clean and install it back into washer.
Run a quick cycle to ensure the washer is back up and running and the F02 error has disappeared. If the error comes back, it may require you to clean the drain pump filter again.
If you require a new drain pump motor, you can purchase the part from the link below.

Recently our LSQ8243H Washer stopped in the middle of the cycle. The first couple of times it happened all we had to do was open and close the lid and everything was fine. Now it stops and we have to...

Hi, I'd like to help diagnose your problem but I may need a bit more information. Based on what you stated, I assume you have a top loading WHR washer with an electromechanical timer... the kind that you turn and it clicks. Anyway, you stated that the washer stopped in the middle of the cycle and that simply opening and closing the lid would fix it for a while. I suspect that your lid safety switch may be cracked and isn't being actuated by the plunger on the lid. If this is the case, the washer would function properly until it reached the point in the cycle where it should spin. Then it would stop at that point in the cycle. This makes sense that opening and closing the lid might "fix" it for a while. Also, if the switch got bad enough that opening / closing the lid didn't work anymore, you could rotate the timer dial just past the spin area and the cycle would continue. Have you noticed the clothes are wetter at the end of the cycle?

Anyway, check the lid switch first and then repost if you rule it out.

Good luck.

Spinning cycle not functioning

If the agitator is working during the wash cycle,then the lid switch is bad on the spin cycle.
This video will show how to remove the cabinet to replace the lid switch.
