Wher is it stopping, if it is stopping on the rinse cyle, it could be a bad pressure switch or plugged tube to the pressure switch, if it is stopping in the spin cyle it could be the door switch not functioning or a plugged pump filter or pump or clogged discharge hoe. The pump filter is ususally an issue, it is under the tub, usually right in front with some sort of cap on it.
Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you have drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out. Door locked? Press "end of cycle" for 3 seconds, wait for 2 minutes & try the door. are you getting any codes, these tell us a lot.
If this was helpful a vote of approval for the free help would be appreciated.

Above is your service and repair manual. I would think your main controller board has faulted. Most likely it has been spiked or a power surge has affected it. This Board will need to be replaced. All parts are in the service manual, parts numbers too. Now please use the service and repair manual, and perform the troubleshooting steps to isolate this issue and to be sure of our main board diagnosis.
However if you do not wish to DIY, then please contact your local whirlpool service agent and ask for a service call, then ask them for a "Quote" for the repair, before allowing repair work to commence, this way you can make an informed decision as to what to do.

Problem seems more linked with the program controller unit. Also it is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or back feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET valve to open up and allow water to flow into. If this does not happen then the voltage at the inlet valve must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

Check voltage to motor at the time of the start cycle if water has filled, absence of voltage shows that the program controller is faulty, If there is power, then the motor is faulty, if the motor is humming or getting heated then there is friction on the drive, remove and clean the drive shaft.

I need a short program for washing and i lost the manual. i don t know how to program it


I have an AWM 5100 and the programs are printed on the outside of the detergent drawer, 1,2,3 prewash cotton, synthetic, delicates, 4 full wash,5 short wash cotton etc..this is not on your machine? Check the Whirlpool site, if no luck, reply here and I will see if I can help more..perhaps I can scan and email to you? but might not be same control options.. my machine also has a rapid wash button, which speeds any cycle.
Good luck
