SOURCE: Whirlpool electric dryer. Clothes stay soaking wet

You were absolutely right about it being a venting issue. Although we thought we had it all cleaned out there was still a ball of lint blocking the air flow and causing the problem.
Thanks for your help.

Error code popped up. What does F2E1 mean?


Whirlpool: F2-E1 - Touch Pad (Keypad) Cable Unplugged - Check the connection between the touch pad (keypad) and control board (clock) to make sure it is secure. Select the 'cancel' function and wait 60 seconds. If error code reappears then replace the touch pad, or touch pad and control board (clock) if all one assembly.

Unplug unit for a few minutes to see if it will reset.
If that doesn't work
You can try opening it up and unplugging the ribbon wiring connection and cleaning the contacts with a pencil eraser.

Hope this helps.

Control locked light is on and washer won't turn on. Can press "Control On" and Cancel/Pause buttons at the same time to get the power on but won't start.


Looking at the manual of my Whirlpool front loader gives me the following advice...

CONTROL WON’T ACCEPT SELECTIONS
1. Press PAUSE/CANCEL button on the touch-pad twice.
2. Drain the unit, then check that the drain hose and drain
pump filter are clear of foreign objects.
3. Check the touch-pad/LED assembly by selecting different
cycles and changing the modifiers and options available to
confirm the touch-pad/LED is responding.
4. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
5. Check harness connections.
6. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
7. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or any
cycle
BTW: The full manual is at http://www.servicematters.com/docs/wiring/Tech%20Sheet%20-%208182208.pdf

Whirlpool Duet GHW9400 PT4 on any of the cycles, runs 1/4 of the way through the was cycle and stops and starts flashing F 06, pushed cancel once then started the cycle again this worked for awhile. Then...

Remove the motor control board, spray it down with electronic cleaner along with all connections by disconnecting them, spraying them down. Disconnect and connect a few times to ensure good contact.. It appears that spraying the board and connectors work.

Dryer starts to run on its own


Some dryers have a touch up cycle that runs automatically to keep clothes from wrinkling if they are left in the dryer.
Some touch up cycles are selectable. Some are automatic.

Error code F2.Q1


Not sure what you mean by "Q1 Touch FMEA" above, but F2 error code indicates a bad keypad or sometimes a bad sensor.

Since it's brand new I would first consult the manual. If you don't have it still, you can download it from the owner center here: http://whirlpool.com/custserv/index.jsp

If you still have trouble, since it's new, it should obviously be under warranty, so I'd contact them (same page as shown above) to get it repaired under warranty.


We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
