Hi,

The listed washer, serial #HT201885T stops mid cycle, needing me to push start again (sometimes more than once) to finish the load and it is not spinning very well. Clothes are pretty damp. No power surges or other strangeness. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Dave

I haven't pulled anything apart yet. Where should I be looking for a clean-out or is there an obvious place to look for a clog into or out of the pump? 

Thanks,

Dave

Thank you for the manual. I cleaned the filter and found 2 restaurant toothpicks, a penny and a quarter. I reached in to see if there were other items still there, but didn't find anything.

What is the next step?

what is it doing when it stops, filling? draining?, clogged inlet screens on the water valve

The washer fills, turns for a few minutes and then stops in WASH cycle (sometimes, anyway), requiring me to push START to get it to go through that part, which _seems_ to be not cleaning well.. After that, it needs to sometimes be restarted to get it to SPIN, and that cycle is not as fast or thorough to get the clothes rinsed well. Turning off the washer, opening the door, closing the door and selecting RINSE/SPIN looks like the way to get soap out. This feels like an electronic issue to me, not mechanical.

Ok, cleaned the filter for the second time and nothing there. No junk in the filter screens that at the faucet.

What is the next step?

Digging for posts on this washer there is mention of a bad motor causing some of these symptoms?

After doing the filter cleanout which was the only fix mentioned, is this washer dead?

Thanks,

It's time to have a little talk with the main control board.  Get the tech sheet behind the front panel and put it into diagnostic mode.  Step 2 of the diagnostic routine displays the most recent error code.  Run the rest of the steps, too, to see what it will and won't do.

Dave, what's the status of the door lock when shut down occurs, locked or unlocked?  Also, what led's are lit on the control panel, if any?

Thank you, Sensei. I will do that this week and reply.

The door is unlocked. At startup, the door locks and unlocks and when it pauses, each time it is unlocked. I forgot to check on the washer over the weekend and when it paused, the whole timer ran out and nothing happened after a bit after filling.

The LED's are the cycle running.
