There probably isn't one. If you are certain power is getting to the machine, there may have been control failure.

2 possible causes
the water solenoid control valve is split in the diaphragm and not stopping the water
the small hose from the base of the tub to the level control pressure unit is split or disconnected or the pressure unit has failed and is not activating the water control valve

Take out the soap drawer and clean the fabric softner compartment. This happens when there is residues left. And it gets clogged up.

The obvious question is how do you know that it is soap? What washing machine is it? The biggest problem with most washing machines is that people use too much soap to begin with. I would go to a store and get a new t-shirt or something. Run the machine with nothing in it. Then put the shirt in and run it again without adding any soap. When it is done check the shirt for soap. There could be a build up on the inside of the drum.

Please do not do another load of wash until this problem is fixed, or you may find yourself with a house/apartment fire!
I am thinking your motor (most likely) or the controls (least) have a short, and are causing your problem.
Oh, yes.
Take a really good look at the circuit breaker box inside, because a broken or loose ground wire ( there are two) can also cause this problem.
One ground wire should be white, one should be bare.
Each should be securely screwed into the lugs of the grounded section of the circuit breaker box.
God bless your efforts.

pull back the lip and look for a wire and spring that goes around the gasket. check out repair videos on repairclinic.com or appliancepartspros.com.

more often than not, this is a problem with a faulty heater in the machine not getting it up to temperatre (which help the powder dissolve). Put it on a 90 degree wash and keep checking the temperature, if it's not getting hot, then you need to swap out the heater. Ift IS getting hot, then it could be an empty pump problem. If the pump or waste pipe are blocked, the wash will take a very long time but it will be struggling to evacuate water and add fresh, which will also causse powder residue to be left behind. But I'd put my money on a heater fault

something is blocking the pump.unplug first.take drain hose and hold down at floor level with a container to catch water.it may be a coin or a wire from a bra,hair bobble etc feel in the pump to see if the impeller is free to move.if it is then suspect something in the hose between drum and pump like a sock.that restricts flow enough to put up fault code

why do you use tub clean function, we have never had the need to reclean the tub having just run hot detergent and water thru it .

Hi Elaine258, you may need to take a look into it from the top, the soap, softener dispenser may be catching. Fairly straight forward to do, disconnect from the mains, two fasteners at the back hold the top on (if I remember right) lift top up from back and push forward, vvwalla.
Hope this helps.

open door and see if the drum can be moved up and down or side to side a lot. if it can, then you need a new bearing most likely. this would most likely only happen on a older washer that has been used quite a bit. repairclinic.com and appliancepartspros.com both have very good videos to show how the bearing can be replaced. takes some time and work, but if everything else on the washer is good, it could be worth the trouble. good luck.
