My washer which is only a couple of years old stops mid cycle. I hear this "ping" and then it stops mid cycle. I have to go push the start button to get it to finish its cycle. that's problematic if I go away for a few hours! I finally got an error code the other day "3E". In the googling I did it means its not good! I did the first stuff by unplugging it and plugging it back in. I am not getting the error code but it still stops mid cycle. What else can I try?

Changed from dishwasher to washer in title

Are you having any problems with it draining properly? If not, then yes it sounds like the main control board is acting up, I'd replace the main control board.

Here's the main control board for your model:
Main Control Board DC92-01621C

so I put in the new board about 3 days ago and have put the machine through all its cycles. That seemed to do the trick! I don't have the mysterious pause mid cycle anymore. Just sucks I had to spend $200 on a machine that's only a few years old. My whirlpool didn't have anything happen to it when I retired it (too small)

Excellent Blake, Glad the new control board fixed it. (y)

Thanks for the update!

Yes, Whirlpool and Maytag are extremely good brands with the least repairs on them all.:)
