Model actually WMA10 but similar to WMA12.
Which ever programme is selected machine starts up as normal but will then rotate several times - hold for a while - rotate several times more then tells us it has completed the cycle. ie prog end(light comes on) and door unlock (light off). Water will fill and also will drain. Any ideas please? Would like to know what component is at fault if anyone can help. My wife is giving me serious grief about having to use the laundrette.

Re: WMA10 abridged programme cycle
Is the drum going round at all if not then most likely your carbon brushes which puts power to the motor there is 2 either side of the motor you will need some bent nosed pliers to take them out must have at least 8ml of carbon on them

I have the same model at work only under the frigidaire branding. The shock mounts for the drum are made of plastic and can break (especially if the unit is moved without the shipping screws) If one breaks the unit will make a clunking sound.
hi from the uk susan ? this is not uncommon and easily fixed if you are confident DIY ? and req's a little patience with a posi drive screwdriver if you want to save $$$$s on call out fee ? the problem is most probably the time delay switch which prevents door opening too soon after cycle/machine has finished and the light has gone off then door can be opened if you feel confident ? will help/instructions on how to rectify fault if you reply back ?
A similar thing happened to mine. I think it starts when there is a power cut or something similar mid cycle. The solution (which you would never guess!) is the following:
Select any programme - say 30 Cottons
Press and hold any function button - NOT Start
Signal will sound at varying levels - release button when it gets to the level that you want, off in your case.
