    i have the same problem.. or close anyways. it seems to stop when it is suppose to spin. the machine stops completely and all the lights are lit. I can push the start button and that makes it restart, but then the same thing happens again on the first spin. It has been happening on and off for a while but unplugging it and replugging solved the problems before, but now, no can do.

    I have the same problem. Does anybody have a solution?

    the buttons are not responding when they are pushed and the washer isn't even 2 years old!!! I assume I need to contact an appliance repair place to replace the circuit board?

I finally figured out what the problem is for my machine (by the way, mine is a Whirlpool compact top load LCE4332PQ1). it was simply that the machine could not drain adequately. after several uses, the flexible drain tubing out of the machine would get kind of stuck far inside the fixed drain pipe in the house and I guess the position of the tubing made it so that the water could not get sucked out or pushed out of the machine completely. A while back, while having the all-lights-lit issue, I wiggled the drain tubing and right away heard the machine finish draining and then it started spinning again properly. SoI rigged the flexible drain pipe so that it can't get stuck in this way anymore and I have not have the problem since.

The way i figured it out is by chasing down some troubleshooting tips on the manual and some tips pointed to a problem with drainage.

All I did was place a cloth between the washer and door to shut tightly. Started right up after.

You need a new circuit board. Sorry, no way around it, the board needs replaced. You didn't mention how old your machine is.

The Machine does not know the lid is shut.... there is an arm connected to the lid... that arm runs just inside the the top cover and presses a button to signal the lid is down.. some where along the line the arm isnt pushing the button..take off the top cover and it should be an easy fix

Open the control panel and check the door switch, mostly it's loose. You should hear click sound when the door is close if the switch is in working condition. Otherwise bend the contact metal a bit until it makes contact. Hope this helps.

First of all, make sure haven't inadvertently locked your control panel. Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 3 seconds to see if it clears. How long did you unplug the washer for? The manufacturer recommends unplugging the washer for at least 30 minutes to reset the computer. Try this first and let me know what you have. It could be you only have a minor glitch.

If these preliminary checks prove unsuccessful, you may have a control panel problem. Do you have any error codes deisplayed? Please reply and let me know what you have.

Lid problem


A common easy fix for this problem is making sure the screws on the hinges (right and left side of the lid) are tight. Loose screws will cause it not to properly srike the lid switch and the unit wont run since it thinks the lid is open. If they are tight, you will probably need to replace the lid switch itself.

It certainly does sound like the main control, this is the most common part (electronically speaking) also there is the display board(s) directly behind the control panel. This PC relays user inputs to CCU (located on top of washer ---middle rear). I havent replaced a faulty display board yet out of the 50+ ive serviced. Doesnt mean its not bad. If you have any questions feel free....
