Hi,

It sounds like the door micro switch is out. You can check this by opening the door & pressing in switch lever with your finger should feel a clicking almost like popping a knuckle on your finger no clicking switch is bad. If switch is bad you will need to have it replaced. You could bypass switch but with all electrical parts it could be dangerous if you do not know what you’re doing. Switch $2.00 to $13.00
Let us know if you are looking for something else.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

How do I fix


Try removing the wall plug for 30 seconds and then plug it back in. This will often reset the logic board. If it doesn't, you need a service engineer, as yours is a strange fault.

WHIRLPOOL DUET WASHER THE WASH LIGHT IS NOT LIGHTING UP WHEN WASHER IS STARTED AND THEN I GET "LF" CODE


LF flashes when the water level does not change for a period of time after the valves are turned on OR water has disengaged the basket but control does not detect a water level change.
Is water supply connected and turned on?
Are hose screens plugged?
Is water entering the tub? If so check pressure hose connection to machine/motor control.

My whirlpool duet washing machine is making s strange hum and appears that the water is entering slower. I've checked the water taps and don't see anything different than before. Any suggestions?


Hello,

In addation to checking the actual taps,also check where the hoses connect to at the rear of the washer for sediment build up in the filter screens...also while hoses are disconnected from the washer while checking the screens also place hoses in bucket and turn on taps and see if good water flow is coming from the hoses/taps. If screens are clear and water flow through hoses is good the water inlet valve the hoses attach to would need to be replaced.

Make sure both hot and cold water supplies are turned on. Select a cold wash cycle and start the wash cycle, do you get cold water? Now select a hot wash cycle and start the wash cycle, do you get hot water? If you only get cold water replace the hot water fill valve. If you only get hot water replace the cold water fill valve. If you get neither replace both fill valves.

We have a Whirlpool Duet Sport Front-Loading Automatic Washer and it makes a pretty loud noise when in the spin cycle. The volume is directly proportional as to how fast the washer is spinning. It's a...


The symptoms that you describe are caused by bearing failure. The water seal in the wash tub has failed, allowing water to leak into the bearing causing the bearings to rust. As the bearings start to rust, they will not roll properly and start to make a rumbling sound. The sound get louder the faster the bearing turns.
It a major job to repair since the washer has to be taken apart and the wash drum needs to be removed to replace the seal and bearings. Get a few estimates before deciding whether the washer is worth the cost to repair or replace. Sorry.

Gurgling sound from Whirlpool Duet washer when not in use


Check your drain line. You may have a siphoning condition. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

If you have the water source turned off, the only other way water gets into the washer is through the drainage system. If you do not have the proper air gap or placement on the drain line, it can create a vacuum and allow water to siphon back into the washer.

NOTE: Some residual water in the drain line is normal.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Water pump problem


Is the exit pipe blocked? Have you made sure that the filter is not blocked? Can you hear the pump working or does it sound strange or silent?

If these are OK then you may have a genuine water pump problem then call a service engineer. If you are competent to do so and have the tools make sure the power is turned off and the inlet water feed is closed off, then remove the water pump yourself and check that it works and is clear of any obstructions. Also check that the feed pipe to the pump from the drum is not blocked.

Whirlpool Duet washer fills with water by itself


sounds like a faulty water inlet valve, not seating properly after closing the valve.replacing the valve is the only solution to this problem, in the meantime you can turn off your water supply in between doing loads.

not a bad habit to get into!!!!
