    What is the model of the unit? Each unit has different error codes. If it is a duet sport it is no water detected and you water level control has failed. The failure is from over soap usage. Replace the control located on the right hand side of the machine and you problem should be solved.

"F20" is a No Water Detect error code. Some of these error codes can be erroneous, however. The first step in troubleshooting any error code on these washers is to, first, unplug the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the CCU. If the error code returns after a reset, then you know you have a real problem. The following link explains the error code:

This is one of the more involved error codes to try to resolve because there are so many causes. I suggest you start with the simple things first. Make sure the water inlet hoses are unclogged and water flows freely through them. You can determine this by turning off the water and removing each hose from the back of the washer. Place them in a bucket or position the washer where you can place them inside the wash tub and turn the water back on. Both hoses should have free unobstructed water flow. It is common for the sediment screens at the end of the hoses to become clogged if you live in an area the uses well water, or if you have hard water.

Next, Make sure you don't have a siphoning problem. This is causes by placing the drain hose too far down in the standpipe. This creates a vacuum and the washer constantly drains as it tries to fill. If you pull up on the drain hose and hear a sucking noise, you have the drain line positioned too far in the standpipe. You need to keep an air gap in order to allow proper drainage.

Then, check the drain pump for obstructions. There is a clean out reservoir that you can remove the access the pump interior. Use the instructions I provide to perform these steps.

These are the simple items that you can easily rule out, first. Follow the remaining tips I provided you and if you still have questions, let me know before rating the solution. I hope this helps you.

Whirlpool duet frontload washer not draining on automatic cycle


Try unplugging for 10 min. This will reboot the system and clear the curcuit of all power. Replug the washer and select spin to drain. Selecting too many cycles in a short period of time can confuse the little brain in the curcuit just like a power surge does after a storm. Clear the brain and start from scratch.
