My washer, with no particular rhyme or reason, will sometimes end washing with the dial pointing to "C" which supposedly indicates "...a problem which can be taking care of without calling a service technician." This happens maybe 10-15% of the time, and there is no consistent set of circumstances which I can discern. I clean the trap at bottom left fairly regularly, and that does not seem to influence the outcome.
I can't say at which point (e.g., rinse, spin) the washing ends and spins to "C". It does seem that the clothes may have gone through an incomplete spin, as they sometimes feel heavy, but I'm not sure if they've had a complete rinse cycle. They don't smell or seem particularly soapy, but I use the HE soap, and I use it sparingly.
To get the clothes out, the machine must be tricked: I turn the power off, turn the dial to the "done normally" position, and turn it back on. Only then can I push the door release button.
ASKO is a real headache--they were installed in a condo I bought. (Of course, the 5-year warrany expired 1 month before the real problems began.) I've already rebuilt parts of the companion dryer.

Please start with your clothes after the washer finishes it's washing cycle.
Take them out and see how dry they are.
They should be nearly dry.
If not, perhaps the reason you are having problems is they are too wet to begin with for the dryer to properly do it's job..
This is not a rare problem.
One possible reason for the clothes not to be dry when the washer finishes is a loose or worn out belt under the washer.
Another problem some washers have, particularly washer/dryer combos, is that they are sometimes not very effective.
In that case, either smaller loads or rerunning the spin cycle at the end of the washing cycle might help you.
God bless your efforts.
If you cleared the drain pump trap of obstructions, and the pump still runs fine(without rattling from a loose or damaged impeller) then most likely you have fixed the problem. The washer will not spin if it can't drain--and if the water is draining too slowly, it will time out and give an error code for "slow drain". For any items such as bras, underwear, socks, baby socks, stockings, pantyhose, etc, use a netted clothing bag with a zipper to prevent those types of things from getting pulled in-between the basket and tub and then making it to the drain pump trap. These things are notorious for clogging pumps on front load and top load HE washers!!
It sounds like, when the dial gets to the pump stage, the contact expected to pump the water out isn't making contact. That could be a burnt contact within the controller, or a loose wire to to the pump from that section of the controller. Once the weight, or water level was low enough from your pumping it out, the sensor that checks the level/pressure allowed the spin. The problem could be on the control board too.
if it keeps sticking in the same place and then if you advance the timer past that point and it runs again the points are burnt out in the timer and it needs to be peplaced.a new timer is around 90 dollars and the part number is 8546165.when you call your parts store give them the full model number off of the machine to make sure it's the correct part number,you're missing a number and letter at the end,the number i looked up was LSQ9549Lg3
Hello Welcome to fixya. I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,
The washer is equipped with a lid switch failure detector. If the lid switch
should malfunction, the detector will stop operations for your safety.
First,turn the control dial to proper cycle and pull dial out to start the washer. If equipped with buttons, be sure they are fully depressed. Close lid and pull dial out to start the washer. For your safety, washer will not agitate or spin unless the lid is closed. The washer is equipped with a lid switch failure detector. If the lid switch should malfunction, the detector will stop operations for your safety. Call for service. Pauses are normal. Wait and see if the washer will start again.
