Whirlpool GHW9400PT0 won't run unless I unplug and then plug in

This front-load washer will only run if I unplug and then plug in again. I tried opening and closing the door between each load, but I still get 3 beeps and the washer doesn't start when I press the start button. Help, please :) The model is a GHW9400PT0 Thanks for any help you can provide.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet won't start

I had a similar problem on my Whirpool Duet Washer model GHW9150PW0. I found the solution here (Scott says his wire was cut, but in my case one wire of the control ribbon cable was frayed because it had fallen out of its holder and onto the tub assembly, part of which is so coarse that it ate through the insulation and wire by friction during the spin cycle). A quick splice of the wire to close the circuit and some tape to keep the cable from falling out of its holder and away from the vibrating, coarse tub assembly did the trick.

Remove the lower panel by taking out the screws at the bottom. Unplug washer. Then reach up inside to the bottom of the door switch and pull down on lever to unlatch the door. Try running machine again after plugging back in.

Our whirlpool duet keeps throwing F21 codes we cheked the drain its clear so we unplug the machine and try to run a load again and it throws it again!! UGH PLEASE HELP


Hi Renee from retired Englishman in SW France,

Whirlpool's 'F21' (and 16,18,20 and 22) stands for 'control unit failure', sorry ;-0(
It could be just poor contacts/plugs/sockets but certainly needs an engineer's visit- sorry again ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

The MCU motor control unit is at fault.

Plug it back in and try again.
If the fault reoccurs,replace the MCU.

If it errors again, make note of the error code and when replying, olease supply the complete modle number listed on a label on the area where your door closes against.
