    the advice i received on fixya was that it was the cycle selector switch. i replaced that and it did not fix the problem. i had to call a repair service out and $300 later they fixed it. it was the hot water pump that needed to be replaced, not the cycle selector switch. no hot hot water was entering the washer so the auto temp sensor shut it down b/c the water temp was wrong. once the pump let hot water enter the washer it worked fine. not real happy with the fact that i had to pay $19 for the fixya advice and $98 for the cycle selector switch when it didn't need replacing.

Check for a water supply problem.Take a look at the water inlet valve. Unplug the machine and remove the water supply hoses. Check the small metal screens inside the openings on the water inlet valve. Make sure they are clear of rust or debris. Check the solenoids. Test for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad solenoid. I will attach a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Just bought a front load whirlpool wash machine. when i turn it on it locks door then unlocks door, it does this 2 to 3 times then the washer fills with some water only spins about 3 times then it waits...


This washer will stop and start a number of times during fill as it is sensing how much water it needs. Also you must hook both water line up and have both on. Also you must use HE soap and very little of it.

Nf is showing on the screen ans washer stops


Here is a note from the service manual:

NOTE: The machine control board will attempt to fill the washer and satisfy the pressure switch during an acumulated period of 6 - 8 minutes. If the time exceeds this time frame, the unit WILL shut down.

Having said that... First thing
1. Turn off the water at the wall connection
2. Remove the water hoses
3. Remove and clean the screens inside the water inlet valve
4. Check hoses for obstructions on EACH fitting.
5. Reinstall hoses
6. Turn on water supply at the wall connection.
7. Test machine.

The above need for cleaning happens more often than you would think.

If this does not get you going normally again just respond here and we can continue troubleshooting.

Washer stops several times in the middle of cycle


possibly it could be your un-balance switch getting very sensitive to any type of movement of the machine, normally they only actuate during the spin cycle when you have a very off balanced load of clothes

Washer stopped and wont turn off


Unplug the appliance from power, or trip the circuit breaker and cut power to the appliance for about five minutes.

While appliance is unplugged check that the drain hose is not kinked and empty water from inside the machine.

Let me know if you still have the problem when you connect the appliance back.
If the appliance does not start back, then there is a faulty part, in that case give me the model number as printed on service tag and tell me when the appliance had been purchased, also tell me the country of purchase.

Many thanks.

Whirlpool Duet stopped during wash cycle.


UNPLUG THE WASHER AND TAKE THE 3 SCREWS THAT ARE ON THE BACK OF THE WASHER OUT AND REMOVE THE TOP PANEL OF THE WASHER. CAREFULLY UNPLUG AND REPLUG IN THE WIRING SO THAT U WONT GET THEM MIXED UP. DO ALL OF THEM, FIRMLY BUT GENTLY. THEN HOLD IN THE SIGNAL CYLCE LITE FOR 3 SECONDS. TRY TO RUN A LOAD AND SEE IF THAT WORKS. IT DID FOR US, SO FAR SO GOOD. GOOD LUCK!!

Washer stops during rinse cycle and isn't easily restartable....


Sounds like the contacts in the timer has a problem. Unplug washer. Remove the back of the washer and spray WD40 in the timer. Put towels around and under to to collect excess runoff.
Rrotate washer dial 25 times and spray some more wd40. Rotate 25 times again. Do a wash load. If it works put everting back together.

My Maytag front loading washer does not fully rinse cloths MAH8700A. I purchased this washer about 6 months ago. I usually wash small loads but have noticed it doesnt matter what size load. When first...


Is the drain path free-flowing? That is, does the water eject freely during spin/rinse? Maybe there's a restriction in the line, or it's too high above the washer.
