Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
How can I reset my whirlpool DW100 washing machine.
The machine stopped mid cycle with water in. We restared it and it emptied. We then tried to run a cycle and now when it starts it goes to pump out straight away. The start button flashes, in either groups of 2 or 6 flashes.
We have refilled the salt and rinse aid.
Can you let us know how to reset the machine.
It was purchased in Ikea about 13-14 months ago.
But is seldom used.

check the cold water supply, either from the mains pipe, there is no water getting into the machine, if water is there up to the machine check the solenoid for circuit, to do this unplug from electric, remove lid, and test the two wires on relevant solenoid, no circuit means faulty solenoid, (test with the 2 wires removed from solenoid) take care note position of wires to put back properly answer above based on info given

Processor board sound bad. May be a loose plug ( or corroded connection on the plug ) . Unplug the dish washer from the wall plug before servicing. The open the front panel to expose the panel control board. Unplug the panel plugs and inspect them to assure no corrotion is apparent. If you see corrotion, use a pencil erracer to clean all contact points on the board and clean the plug the best possible. Plug the dishwasher plug back in the wall and check the unit for proper operation. If the operation is not correct, replace the circuit board. I hope this helps

The fact that it does not fill completely can be related to a problem with the water-level switch, that regulates the water level.
See from Repairclinic:
"This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch."
However, when it is only the switch the mashine usually completes the cycle, but with less water than normal.
A possibilty is that either the timer is faulty or there is a problem with the water supply.
Check that water is coming from water supply with regular pressure, and that hoses back there are not obstructed.
More likely you will have to replace the timer.
See again from Repairclinic:
"When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

I called Whirlpool and went through the ringer with the customer sercive representative that told me there is not a recall on the model of Cabrio that I have... after she told me that Whirlpool new it was a common issue with that washer. I told her that I thought it was ridiculous that the company would not stand behind their product and asked to speak with a manager. The customer service rep returned to the phone (not the manager) and told me her manager said they would send the part to me free of charge but would not cover the tech coming to fix it. So a few days later I rec'd the part and took the top cover off the washer and replaced it myself - there are several wires that have to be disconnected and reconnected so I would not advise doing this yourself unless you are pretty handy with that type of thing. However, I did it myself and haven't had a problem since.
