Cycle selection knob has to be turned for minutes before it locks in a cycle. Machine is an LG WM2487H*M front load washing machine.

Try unplugging unit, then hold in power button for 5 seconds, then plug back in. Sometimes that resets unit. Sometimes. Good luck.

Try resetting the mainboard by removing the wall plug overnight. May also be a faulty lid switch if it is a top loader.

    How do I unlock a whirlpool duet washer

    from a previous discussion:

    Wait at least three minutes after the end of the cycle before attempting to unlock your Whirlpool washer. The door will not unlock until the motor speed equals 0 and 180 seconds have elapsed since the motor control unit received the "Stop" command. If the water in the washer is warmer than 122 degrees Fahrenheit or the water level is set higher than Wool, Delicate or Hand Wash, the washer must drain before the door latch will unlock 2 Hold down the "Control Lock" button on your Whirlpool washer for three seconds at the end of the washing cycle. Listen, and when you hear the unlatching sound, the door should open.3 If your Whirlpool washer did not unlock at the end of Step 1, press and hold the "End of Cycle" button for five seconds to manually reset your washing machine.4 Unplug your Whirlpool washer and leave it unplugged for 45 minutes. After 45 minutes, plug your washer back in. The washer's programming should be reset and the door should open.5 Manually unlock the door of your Whirlpool washing machine. Make sure to unplug the appliance before completing the manual unlock. Use a screwdriver to remove the metal strip, called the toe panel, at the bottom of the washing machine. Once you've removed the toe panel, reach up inside the front panel of the washer and feel around for the door latch. Locate the tear-drop shaped tab at the bottom of the door latch and pull it gently. When you hear a click, the door should open.

    unfortunately the programmer is faulty

    1 Answer

    Can't select wash cycles

    Is the control board displaying any fault codes?

    Try disconnecting the power cord to the washer from the wall outlet for 5 maybe 10 minutes...give the control board enough time to power down and hopefully the control board could self-correct itself by resetting. No different than re-booting a computer.

    If you still run into the same problem, and if so equipped, try holding down the "end of cycle" signal button for 10 seconds and see if that resets it.

    My whirlpool duet front load washing machine stops in mid cycle


    If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes the water valves turn off. After 4 minutes the “Sd” error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F21 error code will be displayed.

    Press PAUSE/CANCEL two times to clear.


    1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
    2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
    3. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
    4. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
    5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
    5. If the above does not correct the problem, go to step 7.
    6. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
    7. Replace the pump.

    Alternative Procedure:

    If the machine cannot be forced to its diagnostic mode then:

    1. Disconnect the washer from the power supply and water supply.
    2. Remove the top panel by taking out the three screws in the back of the washer. The pressure switch is right on top.
    3. Remove the Molex connector from the water level switch / pressure switch.
    Refer to the picture below.
    4. Reconnect the power supply but not the water supply.
    5. Power the machine. The machine will enter diagnostic mode.
    6. Power off the machine.
    7. Replace the water level switch / pressure switch.
    8. Reconnect the water supply.
    9. Power on the machine it will work without error

    Washer powers down during wash cycles

    It is most likely a very slow fill problem ,either the cold or hot water supply is restricted and the machine cannot sense the right water temp. and will shut down .

    Machine cannot wash properly with a small amount of water.

    Ckeck ,the screens in the water valve or at the hoses at the top where the faucets are ,clean them or replace them but never leave them out .
