Whirlpool Duet Washer GHW9100LW1 blinking control light

I have a Whirlpool Duet Washer. Control lights (surrounding dial) will blink; no other functions are working. Machine will turn off, but simply does not run. I've unplugged for 30 minutes and attempted to reset using the ''cancel'' button. The problem has just occurred. Machine is approx. 4-5 years old. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: Control lock light will not go off.

Do you have any error codes?

Does water remain in the washer after the final spin?
If water remains in the washer after the final spin, then the door will not unlock. Drain/Spin or Spin Only to remove any remaining water from the washer. The door should unlock at the end of the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light on?
If the Add A Garment light is on, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed once. Pressing the Start button will restart the washer at the same point where it left off in the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light off?
If the Add A Garment light is off, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed twice. The door will not immediately unlock while the cycle is running due to a possible high-water level in the washer, high-water temperature, tumbling or spinning. It may take up to five minutes for the washer to stop spinning and draining before the door will unlock. You will hear the door click when it unlocks.
If Pause/Cancel does not work:

  1. Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
  2. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, call for service.

You need to go to the right, to the end of cycle signal volume control button. Push it and hold it until the beep and it will go off. This is the "child safety" feature so that little ones won't interrupt your wash when they push the buttons. (and they will)

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

My Duet GHW9100LW I turn it on and the dial light just blinks, it does not lock or start. Tried unplugging, did not work. Don't have manual. Is there a reset button?


Could be a bad lock or possibly a bad control board. I run into this all the time, working for a maytag/whirlpool dealer and repair facility. If your in a area that has alot of power outtages or surges get a surge protector after you get your problem fixed.
