It sounds like a problem inside the washer. There could be a clog in an internal water line or possibly a kinked internal hose. Or it's just broken. Either way, it sounds like the problem is inside the washer and needs to be fixed by a technician.

If you just got this washer and it has not worked right from the get-go, I'd call the store back and insist on either a replacement or a technician visit immediately.

    Lid Switch Assembly

    If the washer stops mid cycle the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

    Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly

    If the washer stops mid cycle the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

    Water Inlet Valve

    If the washer stops mid cycle the water inlet valve cold water side may have failed. Most washers have a cold water rinse and so if they can't fill with cold water they just sit indefinitely waiting for the cold water to enter. If there is cold water to the water inlet valve and the cold water works in other parts of the cycle - or to make warm water - the valve is not the problem.

    Main Control Board

    If the washer stops mid-cycle the main control board might be defective. This is not common. Check other causes first such as the lid or door switch and other components.

    Washer stop in middle of rinse cycle


    All content © 2000 © 2009 Washerhelp
    > Home / Repairs DIY washing machine advice (part 8) Washing machine sticks or stops mid-cycle repairs-sm.gif A very common fault on washing machines is when the program timer fails to complete the cycle and stops part way through. Many people blame the program timer for this but although it is a possible cause, there are many more likely causes for this fault. The program will stick if the heater isn't working, if the thermostat fails, if it can't fill up with cold water for the rinses, if it can't empty the water etc. There are too many possible causes of this fault to be able to give anything other than rudimentary advice. However, the common causes of a washing machine sticking that can easily be fixed are filling and emptying problems.
    Check that the cold water supply is available to the washing machine, which is a common cause for sticking on rinses. If the washing machine appears to stop mid-cycle and isn't filling with water on rinses then see Washing machine won't fill with water (or no water goes into washing machine) before calling an engineer. If the washing machine can't drain the water out then it will stick on the rinses, or it will abort with an error code. If you can see water still inside the washing machine then check the following advice Washing machine won't empty water

    HI, this is a Door Open Error.

    Possible Causes are..-

    * Door not all the way closed
    * Loose electrical connections at door switch and pwb assembly(Control Board)
    * Door switch assembly is out of order(Miss aligned)
    * Gasket on door may be creased in

    F20 flashing in the digital display of whirlpool duet


    Yea! lovelyladys3 and others had great advice. Their solutions solved my F20 problem as well. I had attempted to wash one of those chenille throw blankets (mistake!) which came apart in the wash. Got the F20 in the rinse cycle. I went online and found out it was a drain filter issue. I unplugged the washer (very important!) and took off the front panel and unscrewed the filter cap. The filter cap is the big screw off cap that is about 3-4 inches wide. I pulled the filter lid off and there was half my blanket all wadded up in there along with some spare change and some plastic air-soft gun bb's. etc. I pulled all that out and had to stick a coat hanger up in the filter pipe to pull out the remaining blanket. Once cleared I screwed the cap back on and put the front panel back on. I ran a test rinse cycle just to be sure it worked. It did!! Thanks.

    F20 CODE Whirlpool Duet Sport Washer wfw8300sw00


    Hi!

    “F20” on display
    (Water Inlet Problem—no water or insufficient
    water supply) Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle
    Unplug washer or disconnect power. Check the following: Are water faucets completely turned on?
    Are screens at inlet hose connection to washer
    clogged? Are water inlet hoses kinked? Are water inlet hoses frozen?
    Do rate the solution.

    Thanks
