Sounds like the front door switch has come out of place, or the actuator is out of place. If you can take the front cover off to get to this switch, you should be able to get it back into place pretty easily. Hope this helps, chad

SOURCE: F20 flashing in the digital display of whirlpool duet

Yea! lovelyladys3 and others had great advice. Their solutions solved my F20 problem as well. I had attempted to wash one of those chenille throw blankets (mistake!) which came apart in the wash. Got the F20 in the rinse cycle. I went online and found out it was a drain filter issue. I unplugged the washer (very important!) and took off the front panel and unscrewed the filter cap. The filter cap is the big screw off cap that is about 3-4 inches wide. I pulled the filter lid off and there was half my blanket all wadded up in there along with some spare change and some plastic air-soft gun bb's. etc. I pulled all that out and had to stick a coat hanger up in the filter pipe to pull out the remaining blanket. Once cleared I screwed the cap back on and put the front panel back on. I ran a test rinse cycle just to be sure it worked. It did!! Thanks.

SOURCE: Error Code F8E1 on Whirlpool Duet

f8 is shown when the heater circuit is on with no water in.. it doesnt do it when you unplug the pressure switch because your disabling the heat protect circuit

THE BOARD IS PROBABLY FAULTY

F08 indicates pressure switch stuck on full.



Unplug the appliance from the wall socket.

Take the top off the machine.

Locate the pressure switch, you can identify it by the thin tube attached to it.

Take the tube off, blow down this tube as hard as you can to shift any blockage or restriction in the pressure chamber. Give the pressure switch a couple of good taps with the screwdriver handle.

Refit the tube and try the machine again.

If still doing it, unplug again and follow the tube down.

This end will be attached to the pressure chamber.

Take this chamber off and thoroughly clean it out, clean out the port into the tub too.

Reassemble and try again.



If after this it's still faulty you'll need to start replacing parts.

I'd suggest trying a new pressure switch first.

Failing this, if all of the above fails to resolve the problem you're possibly looking at a faulty main control board.

It is hard to tell if there is no model number. Normally, WP machine has error code appeared on the display. I guess your unit does not have display, so the combination flashing is a signal to tell you what wrong with the system. You can check the service manual normally taps inside the unit.

Whirlpool duet ht.... Door will not unlock, cancel button turns machine off. will not start, unlock button does nothing. clothes stuck inside, not sure if there is water inside or not, but will not drain...


Hello there and thank you for chosing fixya
Here is a few things to check before you do a manual opening of the door
You may have already done these steps but please try this again in this order ok?

Check to see if the "Add a Garment" light is lit on the Duet's display. The light will only be on during the first eight minutes of a washer cycle, when the function is usable.
Press the "Pause/Cancel" button once to pause the washing cycle and unlock the door.Press the Press the "Pause/Cancel" button twice to cancel the wash cycle if the "Add a Garment" light is not illuminated. THIS IS A BIGGIE HERE (Wait for the water to drain. The door unlocks once enough water has drained to enable you to safely open the washer door NOW IF THESE STILL DO NOT WORK THEN HERE IS HOW TO MANUALLY OPEN THE DOOR
UNPLUG THE MACHINE
Remove the three screws securing the lower toe panel to the washing machine. The lower toe panel is the small rectangular panel underneath the washer's front door. Pull the panel off the washer once the three screws are removed.Reach up into the front panel of the washer. Feel for the teardrop-shaped tab in the washer's door latch assembly.Pull down on the tab until you hear a click. The click is the sound of the door unlocking.

Press "end of cycle" for 3 seconds, wait for 2 minutes, try door. Shut door and restart your cycle. If door still does not open - repeat 'end of cycle' press for another 3 seconds.

Washer will not spin


Your neutral drain is not locking in.
Let the timer advance to the final spin cycle. Once there it should have about a 5 second pause and the transmission spin gears will lock in. If no pause replace the timer. If you have the pause and still no spin replace the transmission.
My bet is on the timer.

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.

I get an F1 error code at the start of the wash & at rinse cycle.


Your Central Control Unit is most likely the problem. It is the main board in the machine behind the control panel and they have been failing a lot. This is a major problem with the Whirlpool Cabrio and the Kenmore Oasis machines. You will most likely need to call a service technician. People have also called whirlpool and complained and got them to pay for the part. I suggest you try battling with them. The part is faulty.
