Whirlpool Duet Sport Washer Does Not Work, Door Lock is stuck

I have a Duet Sport washing machine that stopped with 2 minutes left in the final rinse/spin cycle. I cleaned out the drain pump filter but the washer still does not start any cycle. I have run the diagnostics and the Rinse/Spin LED lights up. I can manually unlatch the door. When I select my cycle, water temperature, spin speed and press Start the Pause/Cancel Door Locked light comes on and the washer sits idle.
I've pulled the top off and checked the connections at the water inlet and every other connection I can see from the top. Everything seems OK.

    Hi Skee43229, I checked the motor belt and it is still attached. I can't find a reset switch for the motor. I unplugged some of the connectors from the MCU board and plugged them back in with no luck. If I leave the washer unplugged for several minutes then plug it back in, I can turn on the power, select desired wash cycle, spin cycle, etc. When I hit start I hear the door lock engage but the MCU never tells the water inlet valves to let water in. At this point I cannot hit the Pause/Cancel button to get the door lock to disengage. I'm beginning to suspect the MCU controller board.

I have a duet sport WFW8300SW02 which I am having


Here is the code meaning
F26 is for door lock - do you hear the door lock one time or with click sound repeatedly.
F20 no water entering - do you check water coming into washer
F21 long drain-do you take a look of pump filter
Another possibility is the pressure switch was bad.
Hope you can figure out the issue.

Had to stop my whirlpool duet sport front load washer to add a garment, pressed pause, now it will not resume, is there a reset. i turned it off, unplugged, etc. has power but will not continue the cycle...


Try unplugging for 30 minutes, then try to start again. If this doesn't work you probably have a contol board or door lock problem. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Duet washer stopped during wash cycle.


take off the panel below the door three screws and look for the tech sheet located on the right side. It will coach yoou thru the codes and common problems. Sounds like it may be the door swithch does it lock when you push the start? If not the door switch my guess would be a machine control. 877-262-1479 parts.

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.
