It sounds like the timer is bad. Try another cycle like delicate, or normal, or heavy duty. If everything works on another cycle then it is probably your timer. If it doesn't work and you have the same problem, then it is probably an expensive fix. Best of luck

SOURCE: draining ok, drum moves when you turn it by hand,

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This sounds very much like the belt is slipping or the motor is malfunctioning. Belts are not expensive- sorry I do not know how much yours would cost- and are easy to be changed by a competent person:-
REMOVE POWER FROM THE MACHINE AND REMOVE THE BACK.
The motor support bolts should be loosened and the old belt removed. Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.
ON NO ACCOUNT SHOULD ANY FORM OF LEVERAGE BE USED TO TENSION THE BELT. THAT COULD LEAD TO DAMAGE TO THE BELT, MOTOR AND BEARINGS- EXPENSIVE!
If it turns out to be the motor which is malfunctioning, it is false economy to just have the brushes changed rather than replacing the motor. Experience of others is that the brushes may only last months unless, that is, the motor is totally refurbished.
Hope this is your problem solved.
Good luck,
John C

The fault as seen is with the program timer controller and you might need to replace this unit. The rest of the washer seems to be in good shape and so your washing is perfect. So the timer does not move or contact into the program outputs with the movement.
Try to swap the unit before you invest in one so as to be fully confirmed. Make a note of the connections and double check before this is replaced.

WASHING MACHINE stopped in mid-cycle


if it stops at the drain and spin cycle check the lid switch,open the lid,set the washer to spin cycle and pull out the timer knob,stick a screw driver into the hole where the strike from the lid goes into and push down,if you don't hear a clicking sound when you push down on the switch in the hole then you have a bad lid switch but if your machine does run sometime it sounds like the switch will work if you push down on it,could be cracked where the screws go into it.

The washer is stopping after each cycle (wash, rinse and spin). If I manually move the dial to the next cycle it continues until it stops again at the subsequent cycle. Please advise. Thanks


sounds like the teeth on the timer are going. Some washers however do have a "rest" period to allow the transmission to cool down. give the washer a couple of moments before forcing the dial.

Washer stopping mid-cycle


Push down on lid. You may have a bad lid switch. Start machine and press the switch down with something like a screwdriver and see if the motor runs.

Whirlpool Duet GHW9400 PT4 on any of the cycles, runs 1/4 of the way through the was cycle and stops and starts flashing F 06, pushed cancel once then started the cycle again this worked for awhile. Then...

Remove the motor control board, spray it down with electronic cleaner along with all connections by disconnecting them, spraying them down. Disconnect and connect a few times to ensure good contact.. It appears that spraying the board and connectors work.

Pl give me a ‘very helpful’ rating for the free help, thanks.

Washing machine won't complete cycle


If it is a hot and cold fill washer, yes, then it could be a hot water problem related to the valve, or the water supply., if it is cold fill only, then the problem is elsewhere.

Whirlpool filling and washing, not draining, rinsing or spinning


Check out your outlet filter, probable it is clogged. Clean this out and refit. Most cases when the drain or spin does not work, it is the filter. This is a suggestion.
