Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

My Whirlpool Duet washer stopped and the door unlocked 1 minute before the spin cycle ended. Iran the diagnostics and got codes F 34 and F22, but was unable to run a complete diagnostics test. So I removed the door latch inspected and cleaned it; then reinstalled it. After I reinstalled it I was able to run the complete diagnostics cycle twice without any problems. But I still can't get the washer to run a load of laundry. When I turn it on and select a cycle the cycle light blinks and nothing happens when I push start.

Check the touch pad for any stuck key. Remove the console and unstuck any stuck key found. Replace the touch pad/LED assembly if you have performed all the troubleshooting advices given in your previous post but still does not address the issue.

How do I unlock a whirlpool duet washer


from a previous discussion:

Wait at least three minutes after the end of the cycle before attempting to unlock your Whirlpool washer. The door will not unlock until the motor speed equals 0 and 180 seconds have elapsed since the motor control unit received the "Stop" command. If the water in the washer is warmer than 122 degrees Fahrenheit or the water level is set higher than Wool, Delicate or Hand Wash, the washer must drain before the door latch will unlock 2 Hold down the "Control Lock" button on your Whirlpool washer for three seconds at the end of the washing cycle. Listen, and when you hear the unlatching sound, the door should open.3 If your Whirlpool washer did not unlock at the end of Step 1, press and hold the "End of Cycle" button for five seconds to manually reset your washing machine.4 Unplug your Whirlpool washer and leave it unplugged for 45 minutes. After 45 minutes, plug your washer back in. The washer's programming should be reset and the door should open.5 Manually unlock the door of your Whirlpool washing machine. Make sure to unplug the appliance before completing the manual unlock. Use a screwdriver to remove the metal strip, called the toe panel, at the bottom of the washing machine. Once you've removed the toe panel, reach up inside the front panel of the washer and feel around for the door latch. Locate the tear-drop shaped tab at the bottom of the door latch and pull it gently. When you hear a click, the door should open.

My whirlpool duet washer stops towards the end of the cycle and flashes 6 then F. The door stays locked and the washer beeps. It has happened before, the machine is about 6 years old, how can I fix


F/06

Drive Motor Tachometer Error

The control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes.

  • Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check the Drive Motor
  • Check the MCU
  • Check the Wire Harness

    Control lock light will not go off.


    Do you have any error codes?

    Does water remain in the washer after the final spin?
    If water remains in the washer after the final spin, then the door will not unlock. Drain/Spin or Spin Only to remove any remaining water from the washer. The door should unlock at the end of the cycle.
    Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light on?
    If the Add A Garment light is on, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed once. Pressing the Start button will restart the washer at the same point where it left off in the cycle.
    Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light off?
    If the Add A Garment light is off, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed twice. The door will not immediately unlock while the cycle is running due to a possible high-water level in the washer, high-water temperature, tumbling or spinning. It may take up to five minutes for the washer to stop spinning and draining before the door will unlock. You will hear the door click when it unlocks.
    If Pause/Cancel does not work:
    1. Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
    2. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
    3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
    NOTE: If the error remains on the display, call for service.
