I just replaced the cold water fill valve in my GWL11 and turned on the machine. All worked GREAT except the hot was cold and vice versa. Ooops, I had the hoses connected backwards, so I powered off t

a hose swap will not kill the board. But unplugging the unit with the machine turned on might kill the board... moving the power plug, or circuit breaker with the board 'alive' /turned on.. can cause damage.

My whirlpool duet front load washing machine stops in mid cycle


If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes the water valves turn off. After 4 minutes the “Sd” error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F21 error code will be displayed.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL two times to clear.


1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
4. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
5. If the above does not correct the problem, go to step 7.
6. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
7. Replace the pump.

Alternative Procedure:

If the machine cannot be forced to its diagnostic mode then:

1. Disconnect the washer from the power supply and water supply.
2. Remove the top panel by taking out the three screws in the back of the washer. The pressure switch is right on top.
3. Remove the Molex connector from the water level switch / pressure switch.
Refer to the picture below.
4. Reconnect the power supply but not the water supply.
5. Power the machine. The machine will enter diagnostic mode.
6. Power off the machine.
7. Replace the water level switch / pressure switch.
8. Reconnect the water supply.
9. Power on the machine it will work without error

Front door won't open on 2003 Kenmore Washer and no release

When I had the same issue I tried the following things. It has been so long I do not recall the exact order I did them in or what finally worked but it did open.
Unplugged it for 5 mins.
Turned off everything else in house.
Plugged it back in.
Pushed Drain/spin - start (I could hear it try to click locked)
Then I pushed to stop it (then I hear the door lock click)
I tried all the different wash options and finally one of them allowed me to cancel the wash and the door unlocked. I know I unplugged it at least twice because of the computer needing to be reset. When a tech was working on it a couple of years ago I had him explain a few things and I don't recall the exact # of min's you are supposed to wait so I use 5 min's.

The water was still in my washer and I had to open the bottom and drain it by opening the cleanout to the pump. Large mess on the floor. Make sure you unplug the machine first. It will get on the wiring.

I also learned recently that your house electrical needs to be correct. These machines are extremely picky about their power.
