Started washer, then realized it wasn't doing anything. Clothes are slightly wet, but not washed and the code F-28 is flashing. I can't turn it off or restart it and of course, I can't find my manual. Any solutions?
F-28 code is a serial communication error between the central control unit-ccu- and the motor control unit-mcu-. depending on the age under one year the unit should be under warranty, if so call a service man that care of the problem in warranty. if the unit is over one old you can remove the top and check all connections between the ccu and mcu.

The F35 indicates a water level pressure sensor failure. A loose wire harness connection could be causing this problem if there is no water or suds in the tub. I recommend unplugging the washer and removing the top panel. Screws at the very back of the top panel secure it to the washer frame. Remove the screws and then pull the top panel slightly back and then up and off of the washer. The analog water level pressure sensor is shown in the first image below. The second image shows a clear picture of this component. Check the wire harness connection on this sensor. If you find a loose connection, secure the wire harness properly on the component then reassemble and test the washer. If you continue to get the F35 code, then the pressure switch will need to be replaced. I hope this helps.

First check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly
screwed. Next check your filter if you haven't for long.
the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the
washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose
there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained
by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and
remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and
water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something
shd be blocking your pump, check this out
have you replaced the motor control. i had this happen 1 year ago and had to have it replaced. i am having the same problem and have done some testing but have not found anything else. you can buy this part from whirpool for about $160 delivered to your home. this is exactly how it acted the 1st time it went out. some loads would spin out great and the next load would be wet.
You have to remove the top cover of the washer by removing the screws on the back that run the top edge, then remove the top panel by sliding it to the rear. With the top off, reach down the front toward the locking mechanism. There is a round washer attached to a wire on the bottom of the locking mechanism that when you pull it down, it will unlock the door. Mine has done the same thing and flashes a code of f-28 which I have found to be an electrical failure. I have not been able to fix it as of yet but this should get your clothes out.
After six failed attempts by your machine to lock the door F22 flashes. Causes & Procedure: Door lock mechanism is broken or removed from door. Door switch or door unit failure.
1 Unplug / disconnect washer. 2 Check door switch lock unit. 3 Check wire harness connections to door switch/lock unit & the Central Control Unit (CCU)
Fault 22 Push the door to make sure it is locked firmly (try some WD40 on the door mechanism on machine, not on door, to ease out any lock jam & try the door open/close with the power off the wall) I'm giving you tips to avoid the so-called techs zooming for your wallet.
Fault 28 The communication between the CCU & the MCU (motor control unit cannot be sent correctly.
1 Unplug washer / Disconnect power 2 Check wire harness connection to the MCU, the motor & CCU Check communication 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 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. 5 Verify CCU operation by running the Diagnostic Test or any cycle after plugging in.
Will try getting back re the door lock. Desperate i know, so am i.
A common problem with noises from washing machines has been the under wire that may come out of small clothes. In the washer they can get stuck in one of the inner basket holes and make a scrapping noise, they can actually make there way into the pump and jam the pump, or make a terrible noise when the pump is running. Grab a flash light and have a peek inside the washer for this. Front load washers seem very common to this happen! If the tiny cloth is showing signs of fraying, may be best not to wash it in the washing machine, replace the cloth.======= It's noisy
Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
