Re: Changing a Whirlpool Washing Machine Control Panel
Youll be able to uninstall all the knobs(screws behind the knobs), then take off the switches from the panel without really needing to take wires off the individual switch.the timer is a tricky knob to remove (there is directions printed in the palstic housing of the timer back itself explaining how to release the kob

Whirlpool side by side fridges with the control panel across the fridge section have thermostats that will fail. Tapping on that control panel will cause the fridge to work temporarily. You will need to replace the refrigerator thermostat if you see small black specks under the thermostat.
Press and hold the "End of Cycle Signal" button for approximately three seconds until the "Control Locked" indicator light shuts off. This unlocks the control panel so that the washer is ready for use.
You wouldn't want to.. It's designed for all the work to be done from the front. Unscrew 2 screws on the back of the control panel, you can then swivel the panel up.
This reveals 2 big brass clips at the back of the outer body of the machine. Pop out the clips, the whole front & sides assembly simply rolls off. (Remember to unplug the lid switch at the back right under the control panel)
watch the FIRST 1 MINUTE 10 SECONDS of this video if will show you how to disassamble the control panel,the rest of the video wont be revelant to replacing the timer but it will help to get into the control panel First step before opening the control panel is to push in the timer knob and unscrew the knob in a counterclock wise direction and then pull the dial off, a screwdriver can be placed behind the dial to assist in removing it.

To know what the f21 means, You need to see the fault code list; this is on a tech sheet that is usually taped to the back of the machine, orit is in the contol compartment that you will have to open to access. Note: the newer whirpool units have end caps that must be removed by light prying in order to access the screw on each side that releases the component compartment . Goodluck, Macgivor
I search in the internet on regards to the problems with the Whirpool Ultimate Care II and found out that many others had the same problem as I did. Some solved this issue replacing the switch, so i decided to do the same.
I opened the machine and saw that the switch was not working properly, it was not doing any contact, so whenever I open or closed the lid, nothing was happening. I did a house fixing, with some duck tape i was able to make the system work, and now the machine is washing everything again.
f06 usually means problem in motor speed circuit either main control or motor control or possible wiring connections..FH is usually a problem with the flow meter left side under top has small hose from fill valve and one to dispenser...it's not reading water flow to machine a light tap may help confirm problem if doesn't help may need to change flow meter anyway small switch on small bd with wires will stick and not signal main bd there is water flow
