Question about Whirlpool duet Washing Machines

1 Answer

Whirlpool Duet washing machine model# WFW9451XW00 started powering on and off by itself. You could still manually turn it off or on but it would power on and off by itself. So I locked the controls by holding the lock controls button for 3 seconds. Next day I placed a load of clothes in the machine and it started just fine but 10 minutes are so into the cycle it started beeping and before I thought to look for any code I pushed the cancel button and it started draining. Now it will not power on, no buttons work except for the controls lock button. I replaced the Microcomputer Machine Control (MMC) and pushed the power button and it turned on but I had to leave so I pushed the power button and turned it off. When I returned, approximately 30 minutes later, it would not power on again. The only button working is the control locks button. Please advise/ help. Thanks!

I would suggest it would be better for you to bring it to repair person expert o washers. Because of the voltage fluctuation most likely they need to change some parts.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet Error code F 32

Plug off the wall. Open up behind, you will see a thin tube coming down from the control panel (pressure switch to be precise) to the waste area below. Disconnect this carefully from the top, blow into it, air should pass thru, it shd not be clogged; refit carefully. Before refitting, fit a similar tube to the pressure switch & blow - you should hear a click; if not there shd be a problem with your pressure switch. Anyway refit your old tube & try the machine.

Dont forget to refit the main exit hose at the position you found it. All you guys are going to rate me....................

SOURCE: 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.

This may or may not be helpful but please see the following Whirlpool installation and service manual for the Duet Sport washer.

It has a number of sections on accessing components and you may be able to determine how to take the front off.

Whirlpool Duet washer fills with water by itself


sounds like a faulty water inlet valve, not seating properly after closing the valve.replacing the valve is the only solution to this problem, in the meantime you can turn off your water supply in between doing loads.

not a bad habit to get into!!!!
