Re: whirlpool duet sport front load washing machine

F-01 is a communications error between the CCU and EEPROM. The first thing to try is unplugging the machine for 5 or 10 minutes. If that doesn't fix it, you'll need a new CCU (probably need to replace that anyway). Though if you just got it 2 days ago, call the store you bought it from - they should replace it (and help you get it open to get your clothes out).

Door unlock error. The machine tried 6 times to unlock the door. Must be an item of clothing jamming the door. take the bottom panel off and reach up and grab the emergency ring, GENTLY release the door amigo. Use this GUIDE for repairs
and use your tech sheet inside that base panel for error codes and diagnostics.

your pump is probably plugged or the impeller on the pump motor is not turning properly and jamming.

Whirlpool Duet Sport not running it makes clicks and it grinds

A common problem with noises from washing machines has been the under wire that may come out of small clothes. In the washer they can get stuck in one of the inner basket holes and make a scrapping noise, they can actually make there way into the pump and jam the pump, or make a terrible noise when the pump is running. Grab a flash light and have a peek inside the washer for this. Front load washers seem very common to this happen! If the tiny cloth is showing signs of fraying, may be best not to wash it in the washing machine, replace the cloth.=======
It's noisy Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

take the front panel off the bottom and the error code manual is inside. Mine says a ccu replacement for the F-01 code. Yours should be on warranty if it is brand new.

a power glitch can cause this promblem first push pause cancel twice to clear this error code then try the washer on drain spin and listen for the pump to come on if it does then clear the machine by pause cancle twice then try to start again if code resets then the promblem is most likely the ccu or the board but try clearing the error first if that dont work get back with me and we will run diagnostic mode
