I unplugged the washer for 20 minutes, plugged it back in, the same FL message appeared, so I slammed the door (as a last effort to attempt to overcome the problem of door failing to close before I would decide to call a repairperson). Following the sound slamming of the door, the washer has worked just fine through the last five loads.

Whirlpool 1000 w100 stops after filling with water


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Lid Switch Assembly If the washer stops mid cycle the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.
Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer stops mid cycle the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Water Inlet Valve If the washer stops mid cycle the water inlet valve cold water side may have failed. Most washers have a cold water rinse and so if they can't fill with cold water they just sit indefinitely waiting for the cold water to enter. If there is cold water to the water inlet valve and the cold water works in other parts of the cycle - or to make warm water - the valve is not the problem.

Main Control Board If the washer stops mid-cycle the main control board might be defective. This is not common. Check other causes first such as the lid or door switch and other components.

Timer If the washer stops mid cycle the timer might be defective. This part is often misdiagnosed, check other components before replacing this timer

The washer turns on, fills with water, then stops. Agitation won't start unless you slam the lid or sometimes if you "nudge" the setting forward and then pull out and then in.


Sounds like door switch may be failing, or the wiring between door switch and timer has loose connection. You can replace the switch or check ther wiring, or bypass the door switch circuit by jumping the leads at the timer

Soon as i set cycle and swich on door light flashes open


hi,
The cycle doesn't advance
When 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.

Thanks for your question.

When would the washer stop?

Stops on rinse cycle


I had this exact same problem. Check and see if the screws to the door hinges are tight and if any are missing. I had one screw missing and it would not allow the door to be level and thus not be able to push the switch all the way down. This tells the washer the door is closed and if it is not closed it wont continue with the rinse cycle.
