Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
Are you using HE detergent? If so, make sure you only use the amount called for. If you are not using HE detergent only use 1/4 of what is called for. Remember there is a lot less water in the front load machines.

Tips for a great answer:
It should start back up when the suds have cleared. Though you may need to manually restart the machine. If
you don't use high efficiency (he) detergent you are likely to get the suds error frequently.
What happens is that regular detergent creates too many
suds. When the machine drains the water emptys first leaving a layer
of suds. The pump can't move suds because of it's poor design. Try to
imagine a hose filled with suds with a small impeller at one end. The
impeller can pull the suds immediately around it away but anything
out of it's reach will just sit there till they pop.
the pressure switch can't detect a lack of pressure because the suds
(being ornery little clusters of air) sit in the space that should be
occupied by water, or in this case no water. Fooling in effect, the
pressure switch into behaving as if the tub still contains water.
Once enough bubbles pop the pressure switch will do it's thing and
the time display will start where it stopped as does the rest of the
cycle, in this case final spin. Or it may give an error code and go into standby mode.
just use way too much detergent ten minutes should be way more than
enough time for suds to pop or about anything else to correct itself.
So if it doesn't start back up on it's own try to restart it yourself.
The other possibility is that there is debris in the drain hose that goes from tub to drain pump. Or if drain pump has a clean out basket as part of the drain pump it will likely need cleaned as well.
