What does F23 mean on a Whirlpool Sports WFS1274CD front loading washing machine

I am getting F23 during a washing cycle. A reset of the machine and re-start of the cycle results in a normal wash.

check that the machine ramps up to spin speed reasonably and distributes the clothes- ie doesn't spring straight up to spin speed. if this is ok then the fault may well be the shock absorbers located at the bottom of the machine and going from base to tub. check also that the counterweights are intact

SOURCE: Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Quiet Wash - Wash Cycle not holding water

Since your washer worked fine while in Germany and now is exhibiting this problem at your new home, you may want to double check how it was installed. I suspect you may have a problem known as "siphoning". The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

This could be a simple situation where the drain line on the washer is not installed correctly. There are minimum height and length requirments on the drain line. In addition, make sure the stand pipe you have the drain hose inserted in has a proper air gap to allow draining. All of this is explained in the link provided.

I hope this information is helpful to you. The majority of the situations arise from improper installation and is not an operaitonal problem with the washer. If, however, you double check everything and still have problems, please post back and let me know.

PROBLEM RESOLVED!!!

The best I could find by scouring the internet was that it was a communication problem between the central control unit and the electronic control box. I was getting F1 codes that would stop the wash, then diagnostics showed F68 and F41 codes.
Sears wanted to charge $65 just to come out and diagnose it themselves, and these appliance sites wanted to charge their own fees to offer solutions. So I took a chance and ordered a new electronic control box ($146.00 + S&H) and installed it myself.
There are three long screws behind the control unit "hood", in the back-top of the washer, facing straight up and down. After unscrewing, I lifted up the hood up and forward, and there was a black box - the electronic control. First, you should check all the wires and make sure the connections are ok. If that still doesn't fix it, unplug all the wires, and take the electronic control out by unscrewing one 1/4" bolt. Put the new one in and re-wire everything (it shows what wires go where on the electronic control box - named by colors). No more error codes!

This washer is only a year and a half old as well, I guess it will pobably be my last Kenmore/Whirlp

SOURCE: Visible water level in front-load clothes washing machine?

Yes, it is normal. There is water in the machine. One of the big draws for this style machine is that they use much less water than top load machines. If you stopped the cycle and opened the door, dug down in the clothes, you would find water. The machine fills a small amount of water (below the level of the door) and tumbles. As the water is absorbed by the clothing, the water level drops, so the machine adds more to maintain the water level. This is basically how the washer figures out how big your clothes load is and how much water that load needs. (Of course most sales persons at the big box stores and Sears have no idea how this works)
If you'd like, try running a cycle with no clothes to see how much water is in the machine. (It's not a lot) Now remember this: Because there is so much less water use than a top load machine, you must cut way way way back on the amount of soap and fabric softener used. Use no more than one tablespoon of HE (High Efficiency) soap (even less if it is 2x or 3x concentrate) and one teaspoon of fabric softener per load !!!!!
This should be a Fix-Ya for your question. Thanks.

Hi, F23 means that there is a fault in the heating circuit and the heater is not working This fault is triggered if the water fails to rise by 30C or 86F in the first 8 minutes of the heating process.

5. Check the water temperature sensor and connection to it.

Whirlpool 6th sense front load washing machine stopping mid cycle. Have to turn power off to reset & restart


I have the same problem. Stops randomly during the cycle and turning off the power for a second re-starts it.

I think it is one of the sensors is faulty - for example the sensor that detects if the load is un-balanced, or if the machine has enough water.

Seems to be a common poblem for these machines.

I'm going to try to find which one later today.

F23 fault


F23 that it indicates a leak into the base of the appliance.

You'll need to unplug the appliance and take the rear cover off.

Check for a spillage and if there is an anti flood device in the base, ensure it's reset/working or replace it.
