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.

    Washer will not run or complete a diagnostic.


    1. The washing machine needs to be plugged in and in stand by mode with all indicators off.
    2. Choose any one button on the washer's console except Power, Start, or Stop. Press/Hold 3 Seconds - Release 3 Seconds - Press/Hold 3 Seconds - Release 3 Seconds - Press/Hold 3 Seconds.
    3. If the diagnostic test mode has been successfully entered, all of the indicator lights will glow for five seconds with 88 on the time display. (If it didn't work try #2 again One one thousand...Two one thousand...Three one thousand)
    4. If there are any saved fault codes they will be displayed. If there are no save fault codes all indicator lights will turn off for a moment then back on with 88 displayed and the automatic diagnostic test mode will begin in five seconds.
    5. If you are unable to enter the diagnostic test mode, press the power button and verify that the button you were trying to use operates properly to program the washer's cycle function. There may be something wrong with that function button. Find another button on the control that appears to work and try to enter the diagnostic mode with that button. You may also want to verify that the user interface has a good connection to the washing machine control board at the P11 terminal.
    Back to Top
    Note: Pressing the STOP or POWER button at any time to exit the washing machine's diagnostic mode.

    My maytag clothes washer Bravo quiet series 300, keeps flashing a Sd error code. Or it may be 5d


    What does the Sd code mean?

    This code indicates that excessive detergent suds occurred during the cycle. The washer will not be able to spin out water with the excess suds. When "Sd" is displayed, the washer automatically extends the rinse time to remove the excess suds. During this time, the washer pauses the wash action and adds water for additional rinsing. This pause allows the bubbles in the suds to break. This process is necessary and may occur several times to eliminate the suds.

    Concentrated detergents labeled 2x and higher will require a small amount of detergent based on load size. Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations.

    Use only HE High Efficiency detergent for BravosTM washers.

    Is "Sd" displayed and the wash cycle dial is flashing?

    This indicates the washer was not able to clear all the excess suds from the washer. Re-select your desired cycle using cold water. Press Start/Pause. Do not add detergent.

    Is "Sd" displayed and the wash cycle dial is not flashing?

    If "Sd" is displayed and the wash cycle dial is not flashing, allow the machine to continue running, even if it appears that nothing is happening. When "Sd" is displayed, the washer automatically extends the rinse time to remove the excess suds. During this time, the wash action will pause to allow the bubbles in the suds to break, and the washer will add water for better rinsing. This rinsing process is necessary and may occur several times to eliminate the suds.

    Is the drain hose kinked or clogged?

    Make sure that the drain hose is not kinked or clogged. Straighten the hose for adequate water flow. Remove any blockage from the drain hose, drainpipe or utility sink. Use the U-shaped drain hose form on the drain hose, and secure the drain hose.

    To remove the error display, press Power/Cancel or Pause/Cancel once.

    If Power/Cancel or Pause/Cancel does not work:

    1. Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
    2. Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
    3. Re-select the cycle and press Start/Pause.

    NOTE: If the error remains on the display, and all of the other questions above have been checked, call for service.

    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.

    I have a whirlpool front load washing machine model WFW8300SW00


    Hay Crab.
    what I have found is that the washer thinks it is not pumping out .. if your drain pump is clearly removing the all the water in a good time... then the problem is your pressure switch...it is telling the computer that it still has water in the machine...

    replace the pressure switch and it will solve your f21 error.

    It is a round unit on the right hand side on top...with a tube and wires going to it...let me know if it helps
