Question about Whirlpool AWM5125/1 Front Load Washer
When the machine is washing it will do sudden fast turns when it is supposed to be doing the gentle washing action and it will stop mid cycle. Sometimes it stops just before the rinse cycle and sometimes, ususally on the 30 wash, it stops well before. When it stops on the rinse cycle, I can usually re-start it by turning right round to rinse again, but when it stops sooner I can't re-start it from that point.
This can also be caused by a thing attached to the back of the motor called a tacho.it produces millivolts of electricity which are sent to the control board and tells the electronics what speed the motor is running at so this can be controlled.they fall off occasionaly

We had the same problem. We unblocked the filter (found a hair grip, a belt buckle and a sock) and with luck it will be fine now. To unblock the filter pull down the little white round flap on the front of the machine and unscrew the filter. Beware though water may pour out when you unscrew the filter.
