Major Appliances/Whirlpool Duet Sport HE Front Load Washer WFW8500S


in the middle of a cycle it just shut completely off, i drained the water out pulled clothes out and it came back on (clicked a couple times) then shut off again. I unplugged it shook the machine and it clicked a couple of times started back up then shut off again within 30 seconds. Now it wont start at all. i tried to do little checks it saying to do but no lights come on at all.

I would check the door inter-locking mechanism real close. If door won't lock correctly, the symptoms are similar to yours.  Check this and let me know what you find. When replying, please supply the complete model number and there are about 5 units come up with the same prefix....All would have different features, thus different controls....

Waiting to hear from you,
Eric and Ann Campion
