Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a whirlpool duet washer and I tried to do a whitest white load and the washer would not start. I noticed that the maintence cleaning light was on but I reset it since I like to run that at night. I unplugged the washer and waited about 5 minutes and then plugged back in -now, the washer will not turn on at all. What did I do????

Tool: We cut a piece a wire about 10 inches long from a wire clothes hanger. On one end we bent 1/2 inch of the wire in a 90 degree angle with needle nose pliers. On the other end of wire we put another bend at least three inches.(this end will be your handle end) Process of using homemade tool to release latch: Make sure washing machine is on a wash cycle. Use flash light to locate latch in the locking catch. Insert the small bend of the tool into the locking catch. Then hook onto the latch and pull out --apply a small amount of pressure -- about three lbs of pressure) Then at the same time you are pulling, press in on the door release button (the little white button above the latch hole where you now have the wire inserted). As your are pulling with little pressure on the latch, hold the little white button in and press the start /stop button. You should hear the door lock. Let machine start working. (about ten seconds) Now push start/stop button again and you should hear door lock release. Your lock catch should give away. This worked for us.

RL means at the start of the CLEANING WASHER cycle a load isdetected inside the drum.

Was so proud when my husband brought home te


I wouldn't blame it on the washer but did you have the same problem with your previous washer? Are you using the same water source as previously. Do you use a chlorine bleach with it and did you use it before? Is the cheer a liquid or powder. You should us a powder.

Hole in rubber seal on Whirlpool Duet washer


I'd replace the seal. It isn't expensive and it isn't hard to do. You can avoid a lot 'o scrubbing by running an empty load on whitest whites with bleach occasionally and occasionally cleaning out the strainer inlet to the pump, where things tent to collect and fester.

Duet washer has a strong odor when draining


you might be getting "sewer gases" from your drain, but most likely your washer is the cause of the odors.
does it also smell musty when you get your clothes out?
whirlpool makes a product called "affresh" that is specially designed to clean out the residues from a front load washer.
you can find them at sears or lowes and the come in a package of 3 tablets. run a tablet on the clean cycle or on whitest whites or the longest cycle you can choose, use hot water and a second rinse option.
also to prevent this odor in the future make sure you are using only HE type soap and dont use too much. the least amount should do well to clean any clothes.

F28 error


F28 is a communication error which usually means there is a connection that has come loose. Removing the top and unpplugging and replugging the connectors in will fix 75% of these codes. If the bottom toe panel is not on it will also give you an F28.
