All washing machines have a water level sensor, this can be a tube into the drum that leads up to a switch normally attached to the inside higher up, what happens is the tube gets clogged up with muck and gives a false reading, which needs cleaning out.
Another problem may be your input valve normally a sngle cold water input, the valve can get clogged with limescale and its just slow to switch off even when the power is off. The default is a closed position.
Try switching the machine off at the plug as soon as it finishes, if it starts filling up its the input valve, these can be under twenty pounds on popular auction websites.

SOURCE: what does F7 mean on a whirlpool 6th sense washing

Hi,
F7 in whirlpools means "Clean the filter”.
The following troubleshooting steps would help fix it. Remove the filter on the floor of the machine, including the metal grill. Press & hold the start button (like you do when you want to cancel a program this will drain the water out of your clogged up drain outlet. Clean your filter and grill and replace it. My guess is that the sensor in the drain (a little glass tube) measures whether the water going out is clean enough to decide that your dishes are now rinsed correctly. If your filters clogged, the water going down the drain is still dirty. After a while it gets sick of trying and stops the machine.

Hello Janine Gooch,

Went out on our internet trying to find your trouble shooting guide (typically in the OWNERS MANUAL)...

Finally ended up in AU ... No luck.
(September 9th is only 6 hours old here (SF Bay area)).

Your local peers have NOTHING NICE to say about that machine... particularly the CONTROL BOARD:

Why is the water level so low? In my machine the water level is so low that all water is absorbed by the clothes and no water is noticeable around the clothes.The machine fills water for 1 minute. Bot


If you have a brand new machine with a little pimple of an agitator in bottom of tub, these are the new water saving models. You will have to get used to it. This new and improved design is driving people crazy. If this is an older machine your inlet water valve is clogged probably due to hard water. You can clean out, or replace. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

I get ESC error problum how to solve them


No water is detected having entered the machine. Check your water lines, make sure they're turned on and feeding water to the machine. If they are then you may have bad sensors in the washing machine. The ESC error occurs when no water is detected as having entered the machine. The Washing Machine upon not detecting water turns off the internal valves and kicks the error.

Whirlpool 6th sense washing machine doesn't go into high spin


sounds like you have a blocked hose/pump vent hole.......if its holding water in the bottom of the tub it wont spin it will try but the pcb wont let it do the spin .due to pressure switch telling its got water left... pull pipe off pressure switch check holes not blocked check all hoses......

Whirlpool 6th sense front load washing machine stopping mid cycle. Have to turn power off to reset & restart


I have the same problem. Stops randomly during the cycle and turning off the power for a second re-starts it.

I think it is one of the sensors is faulty - for example the sensor that detects if the load is un-balanced, or if the machine has enough water.

Seems to be a common poblem for these machines.

I'm going to try to find which one later today.
