Question about Whirlpool Duet WFW9150WW 4.0 Cu. Ft. Front Load Washer - White
I have a Whirlpool Duet Front Loading WFW9150WW, all of a sudden the 'programs' stopped functioning properly. The water isn't coming out for the wash cycle, even though trying with a 'rinse+spin' only is fine. 'Soak' seems to be a problem too. Got an error F8E1, but that doesn't seem to say much. Any ideas? Basically, there's a small gush of water that goes through the detergent area at the beginning, and then nothing, it's spinning and the 'wash' light is on, then after a while it stops and beeps and blinks 8 - 1.

Hello, try to checked the pump filter, and the pump is actually
working. then I would suspect a
If filter clean and pump works fine then it could be a control module fault. if this were the case, then it would probably be wiser to purchase a new washer.

Hi, Welcome to FixYa. I would start by removing your water fill hoses and checking the screens/strainers at both ends for blockage. If the "hot" is blocked it won't work however, it will in rinse since it only fills with cold in rinse. It may also be a defective coil in the valve, but I would check for blockages first. Let me know what you find and if you require further assistance and I will reply asap. Regards. Macmarkus :)

f8 is shown when the heater circuit is on with no water in.. it doesnt do it when you unplug the pressure switch because your disabling the heat protect circuit
THE BOARD IS PROBABLY FAULTY
F08 indicates pressure switch stuck on full.
Unplug the appliance from the wall socket.
Take the top off the machine.
Locate the pressure switch, you can identify it by the thin tube attached to it.
Take the tube off, blow down this tube as hard as you can to shift any blockage or restriction in the pressure chamber. Give the pressure switch a couple of good taps with the screwdriver handle.
Refit the tube and try the machine again.
If still doing it, unplug again and follow the tube down.
This end will be attached to the pressure chamber.
Take this chamber off and thoroughly clean it out, clean out the port into the tub too.
Reassemble and try again.
If after this it's still faulty you'll need to start replacing parts.
I'd suggest trying a new pressure switch first.
Failing this, if all of the above fails to resolve the problem you're possibly looking at a faulty main control board.

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle.
What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.
If there is no water flow the inlet valve is a suspect.Check this link to replace the inlet valve:
Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.
