How do I put my WFW94HE Whirlpool front load washer in diagnostic mode?

For Duet washers, including the WFW94HE, you need to make sure that the washer is plugged in and turned on. Make sure that it is in standby mode (not running a program). (If you just turned on the machine, wait at least 30 seconds before continuing.)

Next pick any three buttons on the control panel, excluding the power button; you will need to keep track of the order that you choose. Then press and release each button and repeat the sequence twice more in 8 seconds. (The sequence becomes: press and release button 1, button 2, button 3, button 1, button 2, button 3, button 1, button 2, button 3 quickly.) If it works, you will see all of the control LEDs light up and 888 on the time remaining LCD screen. Note: the washer will exit the diagnostic more if no buttons are pressed in 5 minutes. You will use these three buttons to work through the diagnostic tests so make sure that you remember which one is which.

If this sequence doesn't work, turn the washer off and then back on. Try again with different buttons. (It's possible that one button is malfunctioning.)

I hope this helps.

Control panel not working

It might just need a reset. Press the Pause and off button, then pull the plug from the wall.
Wait ten minutes and power it up again. Check the door very carefully, make sure it is shutting correctly.
Try a restart.

Hi, the machine seems to have hung. there is a CL symbol in the timer slot and no button is functioning including the power button. i had to switch the machine off from the mains.

i am fairly sure that CL in the timer window means that the child lock has been turned on.
this locks all buttons to ensure that children cannot accidentally start the machine or change settings.
to turn it on or off, press and hold the prewash button for three seconds.

hope this works.
if not, please feel free to ask for more details

press the left two buttons in the row of three buttons on the front panel for six seconds, carry out the procedure again to reactivate the audio alarm.

(The two buttons are labelled as SPIN and OPTIONS respectively)

The 3 buttons

button selection : To select an option press the button and you will see a light come on above the button. Press again to cancel and the light will go out. You cannot alter the options once the machine is running. Note : remember to cancel buttons after use!

As you look at the machine
Left hand button... Rinse Hold.. use this option to Help reduce creasing of delicate or synthetic fabrics by holding clothes in the final rinse water. The rinse hold light will flash to indicate that the programme is holding final rinse water. Complete the final spin by pressing the Rinse Hold button when light is flashing.
This is not available with Wool or Spin only programmes.

Middle Button.... Energy Save... use this option to save money and time on lightly soiled loads. This is not available with the Quick Wash, Rinse and Spin, or Spin Only programmes.

Right Hand Button .... Super Rinse... use this option for Large Wash loads and items for young children or people with sensitive skin. This option increases the water level for the first two rinses. This is not available with Cold Wash, Rinse and Spin or Spin Only programmes.

Copied from my Hotpoint FEW12 user instruction sheet.
Hope it helps.
