    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.

    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.

Dishwasher not working, no lights on control panel

If your good with electricity get a meter and with the unit unplugged check the resistance across the thermal switch... it should be 0.0 ohms(omega symbol) if a thermal switch is blown it will be open. and read unlimited ohms... I doubt if it is the thermal switch. Check first if you have voltage to the control board you should have lights on it. If no light then probably The door interlock switch has failed,, that is the first thing that I would suspect as I had that happen on one of my units... figure out how to bypass it or operate it.

Washer won't start

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.
