This answer was rated:

Whirlpool washer will start the wash cycle and approximately half way thru wash it stalls, after several minutes it starts again for a few seconds and stops and repeats this process. I have to move the dial close to the rinse cycle before it will stop the above and finish the drain, rinse and spin.
