Flases f 21 code worked fine untill i put new front board in and i cleaned out lines and hose still giving f 21


I looked at your tech sheet. As you already know the F-21 on your machine has to do with touchpad not communicating with control. F21 F 22 CCU /touchpad/LED assembly unable to transmit/receive data to/from the CCU central control unit
Possible causes/procedure:
1. Check the touch-pad/LED assembly by selecting different
cycles and changing the modifiers and options available to
confirm the touch-pad/LED is responding.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the
touch-pad/LED assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU).
If you have a new touchpad installed and the harness is fine then the control must be bad.

Kenmore Elite, Whirlpool Duet, Maytag Epic series Error Codes


The following are common error codes, with general definitions, associated with Whirlpool Duet series, Duet Sport series, Steam series, Kenmore Elite series and Maytag Epic series FRONT LOADING washing machines. The error codes pertaining to the washer you have, will be determined by the specific model number. All error codes are listed in the technical data sheet associated with the appliance.

F/H/F20 - NO WATER DETECT ERROR. No water detected entering the machine, or the pressure switch has not tripped after 6 minutes.

F01/F14 - EEPROM ERROR. Communication problem between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and Motor Control Unit (MCU), or inability to read the EEPROM data on the CCU.

F02/F21 - LONG DRAIN. Commonly associated with a drain pump failure or clog in the drainage system. Occurs when the drain time exceeds 8 minutes.

F03 - HEATER SHORT CIRCUIT TO GROUND. Occurs if there is a short circuit to ground detect on the heater.

F05/F24 - WATER TEMPERATURE SENSOR ERROR. Associated with NTC sensor out of range or heating circuit failure.

F06/F25 - DRIVE MOTOR TACHOMETER ERROR/STEAMER DEFECT. Occurs when the motor speed cannot be detected by either the MCU or the CCU. Or, for steam models, the steamer temperature has not reached the correct value.

F07/F15 - MOTOR CONTROL UNIT ERROR. An internal failure with the Motor Control Unit has been detected by the Central Control Unit.

F09/F27 - OVERFLOW CONDITION. Occurs when the Overflow Contact on the Pressure Switch is closed for more than 60 seconds. When an overflow condition is generated, the door remains locked and the drain pump will run constantly. Pressing PAUSE/CANCEL will clear the display, but often will not shut off the pump. UNPLUG washer to service.

F10/F31 - MOTOR CONTROL UNIT HEAT SINK TRIP. Occurs when the thermal protector on the MCU gets too hot.

F11/F28 - SERIAL COMMUNICATIONS ERROR/MOTOR CONTROL UNIT ERROR. Caused by either a communications problem between the Central Control Unit and Motor Control Unit, or Motor Control Unit internal failure.

F13/F30 - DISPENSER CIRCUIT ERROR. Occurs when the dispenser motor is not in the proper position.

Fdl/F22 - DOOR LOCK ERROR. Occurs when the door fails to latch after 6 attempts.

F23 - HEATER FAILURE. Occurs when the water temperature increase is less than 86 degrees F during the first 40 minutes.

F26 - DOOR SWITCH ERROR. Occurs when the door has not be opened for three consecutive cycles. Or, if the door switch remains open for more than 5 seconds while the door is locked.

Fdu/F29 - DOOR UNLOCK ERROR. Occurs when the door fails to unlock after 6 attempts.

F32 - PRESSURE SWITCH FAILURE. Occurs when no electrical supply from the CCU to the pressure switch is detected. Or, if the pressure switch contacts are worn out.

F33 - PUMP DRIVE SYSTEM ERROR. Occurs when the connection between the pump and the Central Control Unit (CCU) is lost.

F34 - UNLOAD. This failure is only for information purposes and is displayed in the error log history during diagnostics. Occurs when a load was detected in the drum during a clean cycle and the cycle had to be interrupted.

F35 - ANALOG PRESSURE SWITCH FAILURE. Occurs when there is a malfunction of the steamer component detected by the steamer electronic control board.

F42 - MOTOR CONTROL UNIT ERROR, REPETITIVE UNDERVOLTAGE. Occurs when 4 under voltage conditions are detected by the MCU during the wash cycle.

F61 - STEAMER COMMUNICATION FAILURE. Occurs when incorrect communication is detected between the CCU and steamer electronic board. Error should reset after running diagnostics.

F62 - STEAMER ELECTRONIC BOARD RELAY ERROR. Occurs when one of the steamer board relays (K1, K2, K3, K4) fails. Error should reset after running diagnostics.

F63 - TOTAL STEAMER FAILURE. Occurs when the steamer will no longer function and needs to be replaced.

F64 - STEAMER INLET VALVE FAILURE. Occurs when the steamer valve or flush valve becomes blocked. Error should reset after running diagnostics.

F65 - STEAMER TIMEOUT. Occurs when there is no communication between the CCU and Steamer Electronic Board. Error should reset after running diagnostics.

F70 - CENTRAL CONTROL UNIT (CCU) HEARTBEAT FAILURE. Occurs when no communication data is detected from the CCU to the front panel user interface.

F71 - USER INTERFACE HEARTBEAT FAILURE. Occurs in conjunction with F70 error due to no communications detected from the User Interface to the CCU.

F99 - NOT SUPPORTED. Mismatch of the User Interface and Central Control Unit (CCU). Or, corrupted EEPROM.

rL - WASH LOAD DETECTED INSIDE WASH TUB DURING CLEAN CYCLE. Detects any garments (by weight) that may be left inside the wash tub during a clean cycle. NOTE: Wash tub is to remain empty during a Clean Cycle.

Sd/SUD - SUDS LOCK ERROR. Occurs when too much detergent is used. Or, occurs in conjunction with F02/F21 error (Long Drain) due to obstructions in drain cycle.

The first step in troubleshooting any error code is to press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear, and verify your installation. Make sure the water inlet valves are turned on and connected correctly. If the error code remains, UNPLUG the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit. In many cases a simple CCU reset will correct any momentary glitches or erroneous errors. If the error returns following a CCU reset, a legitimate error condition exists and must be corrected in order to return the appliance to normal operation. For more specific information and troubleshooting advice on how to remedy most problems, refer to the technical data sheet.

NOTE: EACH ONE OF THESE APPLIANCES COME WITH A TECHNICAL DATA SHEET INSIDE. THIS IS THE SAME SHEET AN APPLIANCE REPAIRMAN WILL REFERENCE ON A SERVICE CALL. REFER TO THE TECH SHEET FOR MORE DETAILED TROUBLESHOOTING INFORMATION.

The tech sheet contains troubleshooting data, wiring diagrams, diagnostics procedures, component illustrations and all error code definitions.



To access, you will need to remove the lower toe panel directly below the door. The access screws are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. You may have to prop the two front feet of the washer up for better access to the screws (a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel should drop down, and come off. If the tech sheet isn't directly behind the toe panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.
It is recommended that the tech sheet be placed back inside the appliance when repairs are completed in order avoid losing and to keep this pertinent info for future use.

I have a Maytag front loader Mod. MFW9700SQ1 - I get an error code of H and then F flashing. The machine stops washing. What could be the problem?


Hi

Error HF means that a water inlet problem has occurred. If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine and then valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. If the machine is not filling then check whether both valves at water source are turned ON and inlet hose are not plugged. If the machine is filling fine then chec the pressure switch hose and the drain hose for siphoning (also make sure water is not flowing back to the machine from drain hose). Check wire harness connections to: Inlet Valves, Pressure Switch, Drain Pump, Flow Meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU). Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

What is F 6?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error F06 in your whirlpool duet indicates that the control is unable to properly detect the motor speed and so the washer shuts down. This usually occurs during high speed spin and the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes. To resolve this issue you’ll have to check the wire harness connections between the Driver motor and the Motor control unit (MCU). If that is fine then check the connection between the MCU & central control unit (CCU), replace the part that has gone bad. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Mfw97000sq1 model. had problem with error code f11 could you tell me what wrong?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. F11 is a communication error between the central control unit (CCU) and the motor control unit (MCU). To start with check the wire harness connections between CCU and MCU, and then check the motor. If both of them appear to be working fine then it seems that the MCU of your washer has gone bad as the control unit seems to be working fine. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

The door to the washer is locked and it won't unlock and it says F21. it is flashing. it just stopped mid cycle. What do I do?


"F21" is a Long Drain error code. This indicates that you have an obstruction in the drainage system. More than likely you probably have a clog in the drain pump. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r1484065-f21_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

Included is a follow-on link that explains how to check the drain pump to clean. You may also have to remove the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Debris can commonly clog in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.

NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced.
If you need to open the door but it remains locked, you can first attempt to unplug the washer for at least 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). If the door remains locked, you can use the manual release to unlock and open the door. The following link explains how: http://www.fixya.com/support/r622155-kenmore_elite_whirlpool_duet_door_jammed If you have any questions about these procedures, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you. NOTE: The Maytag Epic is manufactured by Whirlpool, so these procedures will apply to your washer.

Washer will not run displays "FH" on the front


(((FH)))


If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine and then valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed.
Or
If the control has turned the water valves on and after 8 minutes the flow meter has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it, but has not detected the pressure switch trip, the valves will be turned off and the error code will flash.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

Potential Causes

• If there is no water in the unit:
- Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.
- Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves
- Verify inlet valve operation
• If there is water in the unit:
- Verify Drain pump operation
- Pressure Switch Hose is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and Pressure switch

• Verify there is not a siphon problem
• Verify wire harness connections to; Inlet Valves, Pressure Switch, Drain Pump, Flow Meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
• Check all hoses for possible leaks
• Verify pressure switch operation
• Verify flow meter operation
• Verify CCU operation

Replace failed component.
