Hello southerndav4,
Welcome,

you said, you when the unit is started in any cycle it will lock the door and then run water in for a couple of seconds. It then stops the water and unlocks and immediately locks again. There is no further action except the timer counting down until f-28 code. There is no tub rotation and the ccu was replaced.

I see you did a couple of tests and replaced the CCU!!
You did do what I would have suggested.

You may need to use hands on service this time!
rather than swapping out expensive parts blindly!


Let me know...

This is the condition fo the F28 error code
SERIAL COMMUNICATION ERROR
The communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly.

This is what you need to check and or repair

1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check wire harness connections to the MCU, the motor, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
Check connections of the CCU board within the housing.
Make sure all grounding switches are engaged.
3. Check the drive system for any worn or failed components.
4. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
5. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle.
6. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor.
7. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.
8. Check that the serial harness at the MCU is not mounted upside down. The wires should be to the left when facing the MCU connectors.

9. Before your washer starts to fill, it will make a series of clicking noises to check the door lock and do a
quick drain.

When the cycle is complete, the door lock light will go out and "End" will appear in the display.

DO NOT attempt to open the door until the door lock light is off. To add a forgotten item, see

When your washer is restarted after a pause, expect a delay of up to 15 seconds before the cycle
continues.

Pressing Power button cancels the cycle and stops your washer.

The pre wash, wash, rinse and spin indicator lights will illuminate during those portions of the cycle

Whirlpool f28 error code and door lock light


For the F28 error code:
First, check the wiring harness connections to the MCU, the Motor, and the CCU. Make sure all the connections are tight and there are no ground wires off. Then check the connections of the CCU board within the housing.

If the wiring connections are fine then It would be a good idea to order both, as both components have been problematic for the error code F28.
Here is a link to the CCU.
Here is a link to the MCU.

I have a frigidaire front load washer. When I start a new load it starts with a couple of seconds of water then stops. Does not go into a wash mode, the timer shows it's going thru the cycles but


Hello - This particular issue can be caused by quite a few reasons. Washer could be experiencing a communication error from the main control board, faulty door lock assembly or the timer itself is not operating correctly. Did you notice a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned or could possibly have another issue with the door lock assembly. You can also press and hold the start/pause and cancel button together at the same time for approximately 30 seconds to display an error code on the LED. What error code does it display? However, I would suggest contacting a professional to accurately diagnose the washer.

My Whirlpool Duet Front Load Washing Machine is showing a F28 error. What does that mean?


F28 is a communication error which usually means there is a connection that has come loose. Removing the top and unpplugging and replugging the connectors in will fix 75% of these codes. If the bottom toe panel is not on it will also give you an F28
  • Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
  • Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
  • Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the display.
  • Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation when our chat has concluded Thanks again Rick
