Question about Washing Machines

Whirlpool Front Load Washer, Model WFW8300SW04 will not start. I replaced the door latch and the control board. Once the start button is pushed, and the door latches, it will not open again electrically, only manuelly.

    Sorry this took so long. When 120V is applied to the water inlet valves, they both let in the water. There is no power going to the water inlet valves. When the machine is started, it locks the door and then does not do anything else. I hear a slight click a few times, but that's it. Then after about 3 minutes, the door unlocks, and all the indicator lights go out, the machine is shut down. I have replaced the water pressure switch, but it does the same thing. Thanks, Ray

It is possible that when the program is initiated the program will run only with the input feeds coming on to the control panel to proceed the program.
See if the inlet valve opens and the water flows into the set. if not check for the inlet valve power or failure of the valve.
If the above section is correct then check if the water collects and the water level sensor- pressure switch - switches on for the control panel to switch the motor.
So if none of the above functions are working , the fault must be found in one of these devices. check the wiring for any break.
Hope the fault is around this section.

Control locked is lit up and not allowing me to start another load of laundry. What do I do?


Please avoid answering questions of which you know NOTHING.



This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet front loader washers and dryers with a Control Lock problem.

This may or may not be an indication of a serious problem. In the majority of the cases, this is a simple operator error. Nearly all these model appliances have some sort of Control Lock feature on the front panel now. This is a designed safety feature that is used to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. The controls can be easily locked or unlocked by pressing and holding the following button on the front panel:

Whirlpool Duet Washer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Washer - Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Dryer - Press and hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 3 seconds.

These instructions may not be all inclusive for all Kenmore and Whirlpool models, but they are the most common. Chances are, if you have a Control Lock feature, the instructions will be printed on the front panel adjacent to the button that is required to lock or unlock the controls.

NOTE: These instructions may also work for newer model Maytag, Hotpoint, Admiral and Frigidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your specific model.

If the Control Lock feature will not lock or unlock the appliance, unplugging the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes is recommended in order to reset the main control board. In many cases this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches.

What is code F22 on sport duet washer? The locking mechanizm buzzes a little, and when you push start it's locked and stays locked, and you have to stick your hand up in it to unlock it.Thanks.


Hi,
"F22" is a door latch failure error code. At the beginning of the wash cycle the door will attempt to lock several times. If the latch fails to lock, the washer shuts down and the error code is displayed.

In some cases, the error code can also be displayed if the CCU goes bad. There is a door latch relay on the board that controls the door locking mechanism. The CCU is not serviceable and must be replaced if defective. In addition, make sure all the connector plugs between the CCU and door latch are connected and snug.

Thank you !!

How do I fix my washer with an F-22 code


"F22" is a door latch failure error code. At the beginning of the wash cycle the door will attempt to lock several times. If the latch fails to lock, the washer shuts down and the error code is displayed. The following link explains how to troubleshoot and repair:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r1976388-f22_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

In some cases, the error code can also be displayed if the CCU goes bad. There is a door latch relay on the board that controls the door locking mechanism. The CCU is not serviceable and must be replaced if defective. In addition, make sure all the connector plugs between the CCU and door latch are connected and snug.

There is a tech sheet located inside the washer behind the lower kick panel under the door. Refer to your tech sheet for more detailed information concerned connector plug numbering and troubleshooting of the CCU.

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

Whirlpool Duet front load washer won't start


The error codes it is showing don't even exist. Does the little round door latch plunger go in and out if you push it?If not, then replace the door latch. If so, you most likely have a bad machine control. Please contact me if you need further help or leave feedback if appropriate as that is how I get paid. Thanks for letting me help you!

Button start locked my clothes locked inside washer duet whirlpool ghw-9200lq


If you suspect you have a defective door latch, you should be getting an error code of "Fdl" displayed on the console as well. This may just be a matter of a malfunction where the latch became jammed. You can still get your clothes out of the washer by removing the lower panel under the door. There are 3 torx type screws under the bottom edge of the panel. After removing the panel, place your hand inside the washer behind the front casing where the door latch assembly is. Try to locate a plastic tab at the very bottom of the door latch and pull straight down. This is a manual door release and the door will open, allowing you to retrieve your clothes. With the door opened, try closing it again. Select a wash cycle and push start. Listen to see if you can hear the latch lock. Push PAUSE/CANCEL to stop the cycle and listen to hear if the latch unlocks when the cycle stops. If you definitely have a defective door latch, follow these steps to replace it:


1. Unplug washer.
2. Remove the outer portion of the door bellow. This is the gray rubber boot around the door. Feel around the edge of the door bellow where it attaches to the front of the washer. You will find a wire retaining hoop in the seam between the rubber and the front case. Follow this wire hoop to the bottom of the door bellow and you will find a tension spring. Carefully, stretch this spring apart and remove the wire hoop.
3. Pull the rubber bellow from the door facing on the front of the washer being careful not to rip or tear it. Once removed, fold the rubber backwards inside the drum so you can access behind the front panel. DO NOT remove the rubber bellow from the wash tub. This requires more steps, which means removing more parts, which means more time (plus patience).
4. The door latch assembly is located behind the front panel of the washer on the right hand side. Locate and remove the three screws on the washer front that hold the door latch assembly in place. The whole assembly should come free from the washer front and be held by a plastic mounting bracket and several wire connectors.
5. Carefully remove the latch assembly from the plastic mounting bracket BEFORE attempting to unplug any wires. It makes it much easier to access if you do.
6. Unplug the wire connectors using care not to break any of the wires. You may want to write them down, but I believe they will only plug into their respective slots.
7. Remove the old door latch and install the new one in the reverse order of the steps I just presented to you. Plug the wires back in first, then place the whole assembly back into the plastic mounting bracket, and then reattach to the front of the washer.
8. Now, when you get the reinstalling the rubber door boot, you may want to get the assistance of a second pair of hands as it can be difficult sometimes to manipulate the wire retainer back into place. Carefully reattach the rubber bellow to the door facing on the front of the washer first.
9. Starting at the top of the door bellow at the 12 o'clock position begin inserting the wire hoop back into the groove. Work your way around with both hands to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions. (This is where you could use those second pair of hands). While holding a slight downward tension on the wire hoop to keep it in place, pull the tension spring apart enough to snap the remaining part of the hoop into place at the bottom.

Once you've completed these steps make sure the door closes and latches properly. NEVER slam a door with an electronic latch. They can break easily.

Now plug the washer back in. At the control panel select:

DRAIN SPIN
NO SPIN
and under OPTIONS press any key (has the be the same key) 4 times.

This places the washer into diagnostics mode. "C00" will be displayed on the screen and you should hear a distinctive "click" of the door latch. If diagnostics passes, the washer will run through a series of tests, tumble, drain and then spin. When completed, the unit will make an audible "beep" and the CLEAN light will be lit.

You can stop this process at any time by press the PAUSE/CANCEL button. Good luck to you and let me know if you have any further questions.
