This is usually too much detergent or severely out of balance load. Unplug the washer, this will allow you to open the door to re-balance or eliminate very heavy items from the drum. Close door re-plug and restart machine. If this doesn't do the trick repeat the unplug and reset the dial to rinse/spin to clear excess detergent once finished restart normal wash cycle.

Washer will not fill with water after it locks


Hi brittruiz07, I’m an owner like you and will try to help.

Is your machine type a FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW? I need to know the model number this is important.

With this condition I assume both lid locks retract allowing you to open the lid and no water flows into the wash tub and you take no error codes to the display is this correct?

The Lid is Locked LED lit and if the water valves are not not signaled on at the start of the wash cycle this issue could be related could be related to a Control Board issue. I don't want to say failure just yet. Let's see if the Control Board will let you get into Service Mode. With no error codes to start the troubleshooting process with we need to enter Service Mode and vview machine Error Code History.

To enter Service Mode press and hold simultaneously the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or until the control beeps and the display reads “00”.
This is from the Service Manual; this process starts on page 17 in the Service Manual.
In Service Mode press the Wrinkle Control key.
The display will show a “d”.

The diagnostic codes can be viewed by using the Set Delay Time arrow keys. Pressing the Set Delay Time down arrow key will cycle down the list one code at a time each time it is pushed. Please right down each code such 4, 18, 22 etc.
If there are no error codes in the Control Board memory the display will read “- -“ that’s two dashes in the display. I feel you will have many Error Codes from previous wash cycles. I just want to get a feel for the Error Code history.
Next I want you to hard reset the Control Board by pulling the disconnecting the washer power cord for ten seconds then reconnect washer power. Go back into Service Mode and make sure all Error Codes have cleared you should only see “- -“. Press the off button to back out of Service Mode.
Start a Quick Wash cycle with minimal machine settings and no clothes in the basket.

If the washer fails to start the Quick Wash cycle as you described in your initial post how long did it take for the machine to unlock the lid? Did any water flow into the tub and were there any Error Codes sent to the display? Please go back and read the error code list and let me know what error codes you see from this Quick Wash cycle attempt. I know this is painful but we need to start somewhere.

You can pump out excess water when you fail with dc/UC unbalance errors with this process from the Service Manual.

Close the lid and enter the Service Mode by pressing and holding simultaneously the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”

Press the Delicates key this will lock the lid.

Now press the Presoak key the drain pump will turn on.

Turn off the drain pump by hitting the off button or hit the Presoak key.

Du error code on whirlpool cabrio


that code is for the door unlock error. is it possible that you may have tried really hard to open the units lid when it was locked? if so the door lock may have been broken. if not, then try to unplug the unit for a few minutes and try a new cycle.
if the code comes up again then you will have to call for free service as it has a 1 year warranty for parts and labor. yes even if you broke the lid lock!!! dont worry it happens when you get something new and are not sure how it works.
