    greendude - the fault is that when we load the machine and close the door and press the start button it starts and runs for a few seconds and stops. Pressing the start button again gets it underway but it has started to stop a number of times through the cycle - hope this helps - Graham

Why would a whirlpool duet sport model number WFW8300SW05 starts fine stops during cycle. No error codes door locked red light on water in machine.

you have a plugged or partial plugged drain pump for sure. maybe there is a 20 stuck in it this time! easy to find just follow the drain hose back and you will find your pump.
also could be the cycle your using has a bad area in timing cct. check a different cycle like the delicate cycle and that will confirm pump or cycle

My Whirlpool washing machine AWM6100 is weird. it washes no problems but when it comes time to drain there is an awful noise any idea? it does drain and spin its just the noise

you may have something stuck in the drain pump that is rubbing or grinding on the impellar wheel
check for any obstruction in the drain pump and the hoses that led in and out of the drain pump.if you do not find anything then you may need to replace the drain pump. as long as this noise only happens in the drain cycle.
