Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(try this just in case - sorry no promises but it's worth doing anyway!)
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

My whirlpool duet sport washer just stops completely mid cycle and shuts down


If it has a safety switch that shuts the washer down when the lid is open, it could be going bad. It's a simple repair.

I have an LG WM1814CW wash machine that shuts itself down in mid cycle. No codes given??


We had a problem like this with our whirlpool duet washer and we found out that the drain filter was restricted by of all things one of our kids socks. I cleaned out the filter and have not had the problem again so far and its been about a year now. The filter on ours was behind a little door that screws open and is in the drain line.

My washing machine does not complete full cycle it washes and then shuts down at rinse cycle. When advanced over first issue it will complete the cycle.


Your problem is going to get worse, really soon. The DC motor on the bottom of the washer needs to be replaced. The windings inside the motor have shorted together and cause it to draw too much power, shutting down the washer. The motor is expensive, home warranty covered mine.

Hoover washing machine - door won't open and drum won't spin, error displayed is e08, ideas anyone? Thanks :-)


1. please provide the model number for the washer
2. this is a timer error code and it seems that it locked the door during the spin cycle.
There may be a malfunction sensor or you will need to unplug the washer to reset the washer to complete the cycle.
Something electronic has caused the washer to shut down to protect the electronic circuit. You may have a defective timer.
