SOURCE: Getting a small plastic piece out of a door

If the piece is jammed (locked) in the door latch assembly, there is a manual release that you can use to open the door latch to see if the piece will come from free. The following link advises:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r622155-kenmore_elite_whirlpool_duet_door_jammed

This may require two people. One to pull on the manual release, while the other works on retrieving the broken piece from the door latch.

Another method may be to remove the door latch assembly so you can easily manipulate it outside the machine. This link explains how to remove the door latch assembly:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r587965-door_latch_replacement_fdl_error

Now...if the piece is jammed too far inside the door latch assembly, a last resort would be to replace the latch. I hope it does not come to that, but it may be a last resort. The link provided will give you all the necessary steps to complete this repair, if required.

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

SOURCE: Whirlpool front loading washer and dryer F28 keeps coming up

F28 is a serial bus error from the CCU (Central Control Unit) to the MCU (Motor Control Unit).

All you need is some Electronics contact cleaner spray and a 1/4 inch socket to remove the top of the machine and the back of the machine.
The CCU is the computer looking box at the top front right hand corner.
Find connector M13, (has red marking on it and only 3 wires) disconnect it by pushing the retainer tab back and pulling gently on the connector.
Spray the contacts of the connector and computer with connector cleaner.
Then re-assemble connector.
The MCU is in the back lower left corner.
Find the connector with 3 wires and red mark, and remove this connector in the same way you did the other, spray it and re-install.
Put the back and top back on.

How can i take the front off the washer to replace the door latch ?


You shouldn't have to take the front door or panel off to fix the door latch. You should have part on the door and part on the inside panel of the machine.

WFW9200SQ00 Whirlpool washing machine. Door strike doesn't go in the latch, seems a mechanical issue. There is a little white pin inside the latch on the way. Any ideas what can be wrong?


Hello,

Does the door strike seem to be broken and is that what you see inside of the latch asm.? if no the strike is ok i suspect the latch itself has broken apart and your seeing a internal part of it through the opening where the strike fits into, in which case the latch/lock assambly would need to be replaced.

The part numbers are

DOOR LATCH ASM. 8183270

DOOR STRIKE W10217552

There is next to no adjustments so if the door dropped then the hinge must be bent . You may be able to very gently pull up on the door and re-align it but most likely you will have to replace the hinge.
