Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
My Whirlpool duet washer lights flash on the control panel and keeps beeping. Can't do anything with the washer. Also happens when the washer isn't balanced correctly. Also, a new roommate yanked on the door before it unlocked and the door won't stay shut now. Is this the door locking mechanism? Can you please help me?
Mine did this, it was the door latch. It had become loose. It takes a star key (not an allen wrench) and just tighten it up a little and make sure you close the door completely.

Probably your door then, look at the door itself, at the latch is it broken? should form a complete square hole with four sides. if broken some part is probably inside lock asm. if complete, look at lock and determine if its in the lock position with door open, a arm will be up preventing the latch from going in. replace as necessary. Old duets (red lights) use standard lock asm same as GE and samsung. New duets (green lights) use whirlpool/new maytag unique asm. New locks come in two interchageable models, German (made in china) and Mexican, Mexican model is more troublesome, get german.
If lights flash during a cycle or other time, its giving a code, note the F code displayed
