F8 E1 or LO FL Code in display:

No water detected entering washer after 13 minutes, the pressure switch input has not been detected.
If the washer has an F8 E1 error or LO FL error, the door will be locked, and the control will be unresponsive. Press the power button, and the washer will start a drain routine which takes approximately 8 to 10 minutes, during which time the pump will run continuously. The control will not accept any input during this time. Please wait 10 minutes before trying to perform any functions.
Check the water supply:
Turn on the water. Check the household water supply to see if the hot and cold water faucets are turned on. Make sure to open both faucets completely for proper fill.
NOTE: Both Hot and Cold water must be supplied to the washer.

NOTE: Both Hot and Cold water must be supplied to the washer.

Whirlpool recommends that appliances be direct connected to the water supply for optimum machine performance.
If a "flood saver" device is being considered:
  • Check with the manufacturer of the device to ensure it will not affect the performance of the appliance.

  • Whirlpool has experienced that "flood safety" devices can interfere with the performance of the appliance. Whirlpool typically does not recommend these devices.
Two types of "flood-saver" devices, hoses and valves are illustrated below. anti%20flood%20hose%202.jpeg floodsafe%203.jpeg Whirlpool Duet Washer F8 Code Appliance Repair Forum

Whirlpool duet washer error code F11


The F11 code means that the CCU (central control board) and MCU (motor control board) aren't communicating properly. This can be caused by poor contacts between the wires in the wiring harness and one of the boards. Someone reported a simple fix of carefully adding solder to thicken the contact area on the board where the wiring harness plugs onto the board.

First unplug the washer. You need to check the wiring for any broken conductors. Try wiggling the wiring harness on both sides to see if that helps the connection stabilize. If wiggling works, then the solder solution may work. Warning: make sure to keep the new layer of solder directly on top of the previous contacts. If the solder spreads sideways, you can short the unit. Otherwise, the solution is to replace the CCU. If that doesn't solve the error, Whirlpool recommends replacing the MCU.

If you add the model number for your washer, I may be able to point you to the parts list. I hope this helps.

Above find a link to your Manual and below find a link to a Video which can assist you in fixing the F21 Error Code

The F28 Error Code could Just be a Fluke But it is supposed to mean that there is no water entering so to be sure before running another load be sure hoses are connected and turned on.

Thumbs up if Helpful and Feedback is Appreciated!!!

Whirlpool duet washer code


Hi Keitha1

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber

You want to know what code dL means on a whirklpool duet washer.

This is what works for me 99% of the time:
Simply unplug the washer for ten minutes. The onboard computer will reset and work like new.
Please understand that you are not being shortchanged. There are hundreds of codes and with this new computer tech. they mostly require a repareman. To save you money the manufacturer has designed it to reset itself after ten minutes to solve most problems. Try this first, you can always call a local pro later if you want.

Feel free contact me again!
