Tips for a great answer:
The F26 indicates a door switch failure which means the control doesn't see the door is open or shut and this is why you can't start a cycle.
Make sure the door is shut all the way and try another cycle but most likely this error indicates a failure of the door switch or a loose connection at the door switch or control. The first image below shows you how to remove the top of the washer and the connections on the main control that should be checked. You should push-pull the connections and make sure there tight on the control. The control is located on the right hand side towards the back.
If the connections are all tight then checking the circuits with a volt/ohm meter would be next. The image below will help you ohm the circuits if you have a meter and are comfortable using it. Remember to unplug the washer first.
The door latch assembly is most likely the cause of the problem but it's more difficult to access than the control. The 2nd image shows how to access the door lock switch to check connections and/or replace.
All parts come with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
This is a common issue with washer however; your whirlpool duet washer needs a reset to resolve the control lock problem. Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 15 seconds to reset the control. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
