Customer Question

I have a whirlpool cabrio automatic washer with 6th sense technology. I'm having an issue where during the middle of a wash cycle, it seems to not bring in water. It sits a humms for a long period of time. I have checked the hoses for kinks, clogs, etc... and no issue. Currently doing a Clean Washer cycle and it is stuck on 18 minutes left.
