Whirlpool Duet WFW8300SW00 - No Power to Control Panel

Hello,

Just installed the pedestal on this (previously) fully operational washer yesterday. Raised the washer to the full upright position and plugged in the operational power receptacle. The control panel activated to the normal cycle of 54 minutes, but there was a repeated clicking sound inside the washer. I unplugged it, repeated the step and the clicking finally faded away. End result was no power to the control panel, no previous error codes, nor a way to troubleshoot without power to the panel. The service manual (Step 1) denotes "no click, then replace the CCU" (actually named the microcomputer machine control as validated by calling Whirlpool today.

Is there any other thing I should check (still with no power as I look for the suspect CCU replacement part?

In advance, many thanks for your expertise and feedback.

Sincerely,

Mike

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Kickstand fell off on a road king and not sure how it goes back


To replace the 2011 Touring jiffy stand leg FIRST support the motorcycle with a suitable lifting device so it securely upright and level and the jiffy stand is able to move through its full range of travel, move the jiffy stand to the full forward or down position, remove the hex bolt,the lockwasher, the flat washer and the leg stop, swing the jiffy stand forward beyond the normal down position and remove the end of the spring from the jiffy stand, remove the leg from the bracket, remove the other end of the spring from the frame weldment, inspect all of the parts for wear/damage and replace if and as necessary. TO install the leg FIRST apply SILVER GRADE ANTI-SEIZE compound to the area of the leg that rotates within the bracket, verify that the end of the spring enters the hole from the front of the leg weldment because if the end of the spring enters the hole from the rear of the weldment the spring coil will rub on the leg when in use, install the end of the spring into the hole in the frame weldment, insert the leg up through the bracket, swing the jiffy stand forward beyond the normal down position and install other end of the spring into the hole in the leg weldment. Be careful to install the leg correctly because if it is installed incorrectly excessive wear can occur which will allow the vehicle to fall when rested on the jiffy stand. THEN holding the leg at the normal forward (down) position, install the stop over the threaded end with the stamped side down, verify that the longer side of the stop faces the rear of the motorcycle, install the flat washer, the lockwasher and the hex screw and tighten it to 15-20 ft-lbs (20.3-27.1 Nm), extend and retract the jiffy stand several times to verify proper operation, freely swinging to both the fully extended and the fully retracted positions, move the jiffy stand to the full forward (down) position and remove the lifting device and let the motorcycle rest on the jiffy stand, verify that the rubber stop is installed in the hole of the jiffy stand weldment to prevent damage to the painted finish.

To remove the 2011 touring jiffy stand bracket FIRST lift and support the motorcycle in a fully upright position off of the jiffy stand, remove the left rider footboard and support brackets, remove the jiffy stand leg, remove the two fasteners and the lockwashers to release the jiffy stand bracket from the frame weldment.

To Install the 2011 touring jiffy stand bracket FIRST install the two fasteners and lockwashers to secure the front of the bracket to the frame weldment, temporarily install the footboard rear fastener to align the rear of the jiffy stand bracket but do not tighten it, tighten the front fasteners to 36-42 ft-lbs (48.8-57.0 Nm), install the footrest and install the jiffy stand leg.

How do you install whirlpool duet pedestal


Make sure that you get the pedestal designed for your washer. The white pedestal for the GHW9400P would be LAB2700MQ. (There are slight differences in the pedestals for different series washers. The holes in the base of the washer will not line up with the holes in the pedestal for a mismatched combination.)

First if your washer has been installed, uninstall it. You need to turn off the water. Then disconnect the power cord and (carefully) the fill hoses. Loosen the hoses first and then completely remove them. Drain the hoses into a bucket. Disconnect the drain hose from the back of the washer. Use pliers to squeeze the clamp to get the drain hose loose.

Pull the washer away from the wall. Cover the area behind the washer with cardboard and tip the washer onto its back (on the cardboard).

Pull out the drawer of the pedestal. Next snap the spacers into the holes on the top of the pedestal. (These are part of the hardware kit in the drawer of the pedestal.) Remove the shipping spacers from the front of the pedestal (behind the drawer). Remove the Philips head screw from the drawer slides and pull the drawer completely out (save the screws). Push the slides back into the pedestal.

Look at the washer and remove the feet if present. Partially install two of the hex head screws from the pedestal installation kit in the bottom holes of the washer. (These are at the center back of the washer if it is standing up.) Leave the screws about 3/8" from the bottom of the washer. Move the pedestal over to the washer and slide the keyhole openings of the pedestal over the two partially installed screws. Position the pedestal against the top of the washer and insert the remaining two hex head screws. Do not tighten completely.

Align the pedestal with the base of the washer on all sides. When it is lined up, tighten the 4 screws by reaching through the drawer opening of the pedestal. Bring the washer and pedestal back upright. Reinstall the washer (remove the packaging if this was a new install). Level (front to back and side to side) the washer using the pedestal feet (again reach through the drawer opening). Make sure that all 4 feet touch the floor. Tighten all 4 locknuts.

Pull out the drawer slides and reinstall the drawer. Reinstall the Philips screws. Close the drawer.

For pictures of the install, go to the Whirlpool support site http://www.whirlpool.com/owner_center . Search for your pedestal and get the installation manual. The direct link for the LAB2700MQ0 install is http://www.kitchenaid.ca/assets/pdfs/literature/Installation%20Instructions%20-%208537141.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Installing pedestal to washer


You want to level just the pedestal in the place where you will be using it so when you put it in position mounted together later it is done. Also very easy to do first. Get the pedestal level, tighten the lock nuts, put the washer on its back. Usually you remove the washer feet, take the pedestal drawer out, screw on each side, bolt the pedestal to the washer with the four screws provided. Tip pedestal and washer up, on to something that slides easily to protect floor. There usually are some type of shipping bolts that have to be removed from back of washer before using on new units. Usually four and these have to be removed.

LG washer vibration


My wife and I originally had the same problem, and it didn't help that the washroom was a slick tile floor. First add as much weight as possible to your pedestal. We have ours full of detergents, bleach, fabric softener, etc., and have several of each so that the pedestal is completely full. When mounted on the pedestal, the washer is quite top-heavy, and the added weight in the bottom helped immensely. Second, make sure your washer is level, both the feet resting on the pedestal and the feet of the pedestal itself, and tighten the secondary rings so the feet don't vibrate out of place. Last, I purchased some thin rubber padding (approximately the thickness of leather) from Home Depot in the carpet aisle. Cut some small squares and place one under each foot of the pedestal. This gives the feet some additional "grabbing power" on slick floors.

Hello.

These are usually shipped with a number of "shipping bolts" to lock the drum in position during transit. If they are not removed when it is installed, then the washer will behave exactly as you describe. Check the manual or look for a sticker on the back or the washer showing which bolts to remove,

Remove pedestal drawer from washer


First remove the top of the washer via 3 tork, 7mm hex head screws (they are hidden located on rear of washer) then you can see to line up the tub with the shipping bolts. Just put 2 in --one lower and upper opposing each other and that will be sufficient. I believe there is two screws holding the drawer in located at the track towards the front of the drawer. Now you can lean it over with no worries to remove pedestal
