Troubleshooting a Too-Long Wash Cycle
January 25, 2013 11:33 AM Subscribe
We have a Whirlpool Duet washing machine (about 2 years old). The cycle is taking WAY too long to complete. The load that's running now should have been done in an hour and ten minutes, so far it's been an hour and a half and there's still 30 minutes left on the timer. No error codes, and it's doing stuff the entire time - the timer just isn't counting down. What gives?

I've read about a problem with suds being detected in the rinse part of the cycle, I'm going to run a clean cycle if this load ever finishes. I know it has a lot of problems balancing a load like 2 bath mats, but I've been noticing more issues with all kinds of loads lately (not sure if it's getting worse or I'm just paying more attention). I'm running a medium sized mixed load right now. I only use HE detergent in the recommended amount.
