Question about Whirlpool LHW0050PQ Front Load Washer

Open Question

I have a whirlpool lhw0050pq4 washing machine. After it fills and starts its cycle it stops and the start button flashes. I can't get it to complete a wash cycle. I can turn the dial to spin and the pump motor comes on and empties the water but thats about it.

SOURCE: Starts to fill and then stops, and the cycle continues on.

Jmars, under the consol there is two pressure switches. One controls the fill and the other is back-up incase the other fails. It sounds like your water pressure switch is tripping too soon. Try putting the washer into a self test mode by pressing in this order soak--soil level---soak--soil level. The machine should enter a test mode. Let it run it's test and see if you come up with any error codes. The pressure switch is the one on the left under the consol. It will be marked OPR, the part number is 8054766. The consol will lift up by using a putty knife under each end, pushin on the clips and lifting up. The back panel of the consol is removable. Catriver..post back

probably motor control bd but on some early models when both control bds (1 under top and 1 under bottom panel)came together in a kit worked great since sometimes hard to determine exactly which control bd was actually causing the problem if you are sure wash motor is not running and belt is not off

SOURCE: Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Quiet Wash - Wash Cycle not holding water

Since your washer worked fine while in Germany and now is exhibiting this problem at your new home, you may want to double check how it was installed. I suspect you may have a problem known as "siphoning". The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

This could be a simple situation where the drain line on the washer is not installed correctly. There are minimum height and length requirments on the drain line. In addition, make sure the stand pipe you have the drain hose inserted in has a proper air gap to allow draining. All of this is explained in the link provided.

I hope this information is helpful to you. The majority of the situations arise from improper installation and is not an operaitonal problem with the washer. If, however, you double check everything and still have problems, please post back and let me know.

If this is the machine with just a knob for the wash cycles, and one button to start the wash cycle, you will have to replace the timer. There is no reset that I know of.

Flashing fp on my washing machine and stops half way through cycle please help


"PF" flashes if the washer loses power during a running cycle. The washer does not flash "PF" when it is first plugged in. Press START to continue the cycle from the moment that power was lost
-OR-
Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display and completely cancel the cycle.
