Whirlpool Duet Error code F 32

I turn on my whirlpool front loading washer it acts like it is going to start then the door locks and I get this error code. ???? Help please

Whirlpool Duet WFW9200SQ02

Same problem here. Started a load, started filling about 10 seconds, locked-unlocked-locked again, and then F32 code.

Canceled the cycle, and took about 10 minutes to drain what little water there was in it. Turned off the water at the connections, worked just fine on Sunday. Wednesday--nothing.

Unit is about 3 months old.

    Dutchman05,



    Thanks for the info. I have called for a warranty service call since the unit is only three months old. I don't think I should have to pay for a part on a brand new machine.



    But it is very helpful to know exactly what the cause of the problem is so when the tech comes by, he does not "try to blow smoke," and weasel out of fixing the machine.



    I say "weasel out" not because I don't trust technicians, but my experience with Whirlpool service on this washer has already been disappointing.



    The service company that Whirlpool uses in the Allen, TX area assigned a tech to come to my house on Friday May 2, 2008 between 1-5 pm. I called at 5 pm to find out where the tech was--he was still at the service appointment prior to mine. At 6 pm, I called again, same story--he is still on the service call prior to mine. At 7:30 pm, I called and the dispatch center stated the tech "called the customer and no answer. Service call cancelled." Coincidence that the tech called the last two appointments on a Friday evening, and BOTH were no shows. A&E is the service company Whirlpool is using for the Dallas area.

    Dutchman,



    Wanted to up the rating from Very helpful to FixYa, but it is locked.



    The tech came by this morning and repaired the unit. It was indeed the pressure switch. A couple of comments and suggestions were made by the tech and all made sense to me.



    First thing he did was look for baby socks and other small articles of clothing at the pump. That would probably cause an F32 error since the unit was not be receiving the correct pressure. Nothing clogging the pump.



    Then he replaced the pressure switch. He stated that there is a "break in period of about 3 months and that a pressure switch can get kinda delicate." He also noticed that I have the Watts Floodsafe water hoses, and said that if the F32 code appears again within a couple of months, I should try changing the water hoses to a set that does not have the water flow restrictor, or at least try "resetting" the water shut off on the hose.


    The tech was professional and appeared to be very knowledgeable.

    We turn on our washer and it starts to fill for 5 seconds, locks and unlocks twice, then just flashes f-32.... Very frustrating since the unit is 3 months old as well!!!!

    This same thing happened to my washer as described in the previous postings.  The pressure switch was the problem.  The technician, in my case, checked the the guide that is located on the lower right side under the tub. The the guide lists the error codes and the the fix. My technician when directly to the guide.

    We had this same problem. We sucked up a carpenter pencil. My husband, who is also an auto mechanic, took the pump housing apart and retrived the pencil. We had to use a wet and dry vac to pump out the water. Got the pencil out, put back together and all is well.

Plug off the wall. Open up behind, you will see a thin tube coming down from the control panel (pressure switch to be precise) to the waste area below. Disconnect this carefully from the top, blow into it, air should pass thru, it shd not be clogged; refit carefully. Before refitting, fit a similar tube to the pressure switch & blow - you should hear a click; if not there shd be a problem with your pressure switch. Anyway refit your old tube & try the machine.

Dont forget to refit the main exit hose at the position you found it. All you guys are going to rate me....................

Folks,
After spending half a day trying to nail down the root of the F32 error code on my Whirlpool, I surrendered and went to the parts store. I picked up a new "pressure switch" and also a "drain pump" as I was getting the F21 error code as well. It should be noted that I tested the pressure switch line (all clear) and also pushed a little air through the pressure switch itself and it made the clicking noise it is supposed to make. For those reasons, I was skeptical that the problem was the switch but when i installed the new one and ran through the diagnostic routine....shazaaaam....no more error codes!
So even if you think the pressure switch sounds fine, when faced with a F32 error code, go buy a new switch and get washing.
It should be noted that the service depot knew all about this problem and indicated that Whirlpool knows about it too....

Whirlpool is very secretive about this and you find every code in the book except this one.
What the problem can be:
Unplug for an hour and plug it in again and try.
Normally this clears the error.
The water inlet can be obstructed. That means the filter in or at the end of the hose. Normally it is a filter in the inlet port of the machine
or....... the filter for the drain is plugged /or drainpump obstructed.
Clean this all and it should be over.
In the mean time I am in contact with Whirlpool but it is a pain in the @#@@

    OK just came back from whirlpool.

    F32 means pressure switch failure.

    Either the hose leading to the pressure switch is blocked or leaking or the pressure switch is broken



    You need either to call for service due to warranty or... order part here It is number 20.

    This will also indicate how to fix it

F32 code on the whirlpool Duet 9400 ended up being a clog in the pump. I found one of my kids socks. I have no idea how is got past the tub. I hope this helps someone with similar issues.

It is saying there is a problem with your door Lock. when you close the door does it hold like it use too? try to open and close the door if it doesn't really close properly then you will just need a door latch. If the machine gives you an f11 code then its the main computer board that can also give your the door lock error. I would check the door first though.
