SOURCE: F28 ERROR

Remove the bottom front panel. Three 1/4 hex screws. Use a flashlight, look insde on right side about door level. You should see a clear or white pull tab. Pull the tab gently and you should hear the door click. This should resolve your problem, it did for me.

SOURCE: F28 appearing on display. What does it mean? how

Check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly screwed. Next check your filter if you haven't for long.

Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out

How abt a nice rating for the free help? Thnks

SOURCE: Whirlpool front loading washer and dryer F28 keeps coming up

F28 is a serial bus error from the CCU (Central Control Unit) to the MCU (Motor Control Unit).

All you need is some Electronics contact cleaner spray and a 1/4 inch socket to remove the top of the machine and the back of the machine.
The CCU is the computer looking box at the top front right hand corner.
Find connector M13, (has red marking on it and only 3 wires) disconnect it by pushing the retainer tab back and pulling gently on the connector.
Spray the contacts of the connector and computer with connector cleaner.
Then re-assemble connector.
The MCU is in the back lower left corner.
Find the connector with 3 wires and red mark, and remove this connector in the same way you did the other, spray it and re-install.
Put the back and top back on.

My washer stopped and was flashing F21 (drainage issue) so I called a plumber. He checked the hoses and removed the panel and cleaned the drain trap. It didn't fix the problem it's still won't drain. It...


The SUD message relates to overdose of detergent detected during the Wash Cycle.
This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent or excessive suds.
If too much detergent was used, run the washer through a Rinse/Spin cycle, then a Normal cycle, without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked. this seems to be the reason as to why your unit is not fixed even after trying to solve F21......

F28 is a communication error which usually means there is a connection that has come loose. Removing the top and unpplugging and replugging the connectors in will fix 75% of these codes. If the bottom toe panel is not on it will also give you an F28.
Good luck

I washed a large load in our Whirlpood Duet Washing Machine and it stopped with a flashing F28 code. I unplugged it for 5 minutes and it still will not run a cycle without stopping with a flashing F28...


The error code F28 means one or both of these parts are bad.
Motor Control Unit (8540135)
Microcomputer Machine Control Unit (8540788)
It would be a good idea to order both, as both components have been problematic for error code F28

If you find either the MCU or the CCU(Microcomputer Machine Control Unit) fixed it.

You can download the online repair manual in the below link

F28 error means the CCU(central control unit) lost communication the the MCU(Motor control Unit) for an HE2 washer.
I would look inside the lower front panel and get the tech sheet and run a diagnostic test per the instructions... See what comes up. Review troubleshooting for the F28 make sure you did not miss anything.
I hope this helps
