Question about Whirlpool LHW0050PQ Front Load Washer
After washing the washer will not go into the rinse or spin cycle but if I put it in the spin cycle manually it will work, and if I put it in rinse cycle manually it will not work. Would the problem be a control switch or the circuit board?
I have a 2 yr old GE front load and had the same issues. I solved it by cleaning out the drain filter. (It is not listed anywhere in the manual) It was behind the bottom front panel. It looked like a plastic gas cap. I unscrewed it and it was filled with a huge amount of lint, tweezers, change and all other junk from my kids pockets. Apparently if the washers have to much water in them they will not spin out due to the weight. Once the drain was cleared out and the water was free to drain it worked like brand new.

Basically,the machine you have is garbage! - I have one also, It is less than one year old and the repair folks have been out 5 times. It doesn't spin either!
I'd call this one a lemon!

Use a quarter inch nut driver to remove the bottom panel. A tech sheet should be under there that will give diagnostics. Open the pump filter and check for objects.
