Re: whirlpool duet

Sounds like the on/off button is faulty. It may need replacing, but try a squirt of WD40 on the switch WITH THE POWER TURNED OFF!! COS WD40 IS COMBUSTABLE 

 But like my dear old Dad said ''it works like magic in a tin''

When I wash comforter in whirlpool duet front load water comes

first an foremost your washer isn't designed to wash comforters, the capacity isn't large enough. only clothes sheets . the reason ur door wont stay closed is the bulk item is pushing it open. overloading washer will cause $$ major problems. simiply take that to the cleaners an save urself some big bucks.

Whirlpool control locked

Power shd be on. Press and hold "end of cycle" button for 3 seconds. Always wait for 2 minutes after the wash is over for the machine to release the door lock; an inbuilt safety device. Never force washer doors, you'll have probs.
Check out your filter too.

Intermittant trouble with code d 11

Answer Duet HT®
duet_f_dl_actualsize.gif Duet SportTM
This error code indicates that the door is not locking.
Is the washer door firmly shut?
The door must be completely closed for the washer to operate. The door may look as if it's closed, but it may not be latched. Open the door and firmly close it.
Were you washing a large load?
Before you close the washer door, check for laundry items sticking out beyond the door opening. Leave enough space in the washer to allow the clothes to freely tumble. Reduce your load size if needed.
fl_doorseal.jpg To remove the error display, press Pause/Cancel twice.

If Pause/Cancel does not work:
  1. Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
  2. Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, and all of the other conditions above have been checked, call for service.

Whirlpool duet problem with door lock

I've had this same exact problem and that's why I'm at this site.   I have had success with holding the start button and hitting the door right over the place where the switch is on the other side.  That worked good until today so I've called a service tech to come out later this week.  Give that a try and maybe it will work for you.

Whirlpool duet front-load

Sounds like you have done everything right. Is the door closed firmly? Did you hold the pus to start button long enough?

Pause mode stuck

Is the door firmly closed? Open the door and close it firmly. If the pause button is really stuck, you will need to repair/replace the board.
