    Getting the same 5d error code. Machine not rinsing or draining. any advice?

  • nmarino Jul 17, 2008

    Same thing here. It says 5d in the display area. I think I'll have to call them to find out. The manual says nothing about it. The clothes are coming out as if they aren't being rinsed enough.

FYI: The pump cleanout is located on the front of the machine, bottom right corner. There are only three screws holding the bottom cover on. It is easy to get to if you prop it up a few inches off the ground. Just thought this would be helpful as I just did this as of 5 min ago. Should take 10 min. or less.

    Great solution that is easy to do. Couple screws and a twist of the drain clean-out cover and there it was: 2 screws, about 50 coins, a gold braclet, an angel pendant, several rocks and a load of lint and scuz. Do be prepared with a bucket or towles to catch the water that will come out. Took about 10 minutes.

I am TIRED of my Whirlpool Duet. It's the worst washer I have ever owned! I am tired of searching the internet every time I get a new error code, tired of cleaning the drain pipe, tired of re-inserting the plug in the back (due to excessive vibration), tired of hearing coins and got knows what else rattle when it's spinning. First thing Monday morning, I am getting me the "old-fashioned" style washer. Duet is HORRIBLE!

We received the same code of s5 and it not spinning out. We took the front cover on the bottom off and cleaned the drain. We found 2 small barrets, bobbi pin, part to a door, a 22 bullet, a bit, 40 coins and my thong panties! With a lot of lint and hair. UGH! We will be cleaning that more regularly! THANK!

Hey The solution worked. Take off the front cover on the bottom, then there is a drain clean out. Make sure you have towells, as water will drain out. Removed lint and items, I had a nail, bobbypin and lint that clogged the drain. Once removed, worked fine!

Thanks for all the advice. I checked my lint filter and and found: approx 75 coins (no kidding), bobby pin, 3 marbles, 4 airsoft BBs, 1 small nail, 1 childs ring, a few pieces of gravel and other misc items all bound tightly together in lint and silt. I can't believe the unit was washing at all. Looks my problem is solved.

Thanks for the tips on here. I am not mechanically inclined at all but with all the great info here, I was able to clear ours out - final tally 13 coins, 2 little girls socks, and eyeglass cleaning cloth, a doll's bib, and some miscellaneous junk - unreal!!! Hex nuts on the front of the machine are 1/4" to get the lower panel off. This info helped too - there's a link down a bit for a repair manual for older models that was helpful.

I hate my Whirlpool Duet Sport. I had all these problems (S5 error code, door not unlocking, etc.) and had the service company out to look at it SEVEN times in the first 2 years! Finally the warranty company sent me a refund of the replacement value.

Thanks for the posts everyone. Our washer exhibited the error code 21. I cleaned the washer trap and thought great this is fixed. Started the washer and then got the error code 5sd. Hmmm, wife had added more detergent ( HE of course ). Unplugged washer for a few minutes, tried rinse cycle and nothing! Just error code 5sd.



Back to square one. When I reopened the trap I tried spinning the impeller on the the drain pump attached to the trap. Though it turned it did so reluctantly. Managed to get one finger inside impeller housing and felt a bobby pin stuck between the side of the impeller and the impeller housing. Removed pump ( that was fun ) gave it a good shake and out popped the friggin bobby pin.



Put everything back together and now I\'m running the rinse and spin cycle to get rid of any excess detergent. She\'s back up and running!



So please double check the free movement of the impeller when you\'ve got the trap out. It may save you this added aggravation.



Thanks Again to everyone who posted their solutions.

I keep getting a dl code when starting my washer. Im assuming its the door lock, but not sure

Posted on Oct 26, 2010

F21 According to Whirlpool:

"This error code indicates that drain times are longer than expected.
Is the drain hose kinked or clogged?
Make sure the drain hose is not kinked or clogged. Straighten the hose for adequate water flow. Remove any blockage from the drain hose, drainpipe or utility sink. Use the U-shaped drain hose form on the drain hose, and secure the drain hose. See the Installation Instructions for details; find them by entering your model number in the search tool below."
Also
"Are you using HE High Efficiency detergent?
Use only HE High Efficiency detergent. Using non-HE detergent, or more than the manufacturer's recommended amount of detergent, can cause excessive suds. The excess suds will slow or stop the removal of water from the washer.
Concentrated detergents labeled 2x and higher will require a small amount of detergent based on load size. Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations."

Regards,
Eric P.

According to Whirlpool:

  • If you see "Sud" or "Sd" with the Rinse status light on, the washer is in the process of removing suds. Let the cycle continue.
  • If you see "Sud" or "Sd" and the Cycle Complete light is on, the washer detected too many suds during the cycle and your load may not be fully rinsed or water may not be fully removed. You may want to select a Rinse/Spin cycle for further rinsing.
Regards,
Eric P.

F30 error code...what is this problem?


F30 is a dispenser failure code on the Duet Sport washer.
It means the dispenser motor will not go to the proper position.
Remove the top of the washer and inspect the dispenser linkage to see if it is binding up.
Post back with what you find and we will check from there.

Whirlpool Duet Sport Model WFW8300SW0 basket won't


The following list of codes indicates an electronics communication problem with the washer: - Duet HT washer - F01, F03, F06, F11, F23, F24, F27, F28, F29, F30, F31, F32, F35, F42, F61, F62, F63, F64, F65, F70, F71, and F99

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.

I would first replace the door latch/lock assembly, a number of users have and it fixed the F-11 error code completely. Its the cheapest part for this problem.

Hope helps.

We have a Whirlpool Duet HT washer. Due to the freeze, and burst pipes, we haven't used it for a few days, but got the cold water line fixed. However, when we started the washer, it came up with an F20...


"F20" is a No Water Detect error.It is an indication that you either have no water coming into the washer, or very little water at all. If the pressure switch has not tripped after 6 minutes, the error code is displayed.This can be a potential problem with the following:


If you have NO water in the wash tub, check the following:

- Inlet water valve may be clogged. Clean inlet screens if necessary.
- Make sure water taps are on.
- Check inlet hoses for kinks or clogs.

If you do not have the hot water line fixed, then that is where your problem is. The washer looks for water supply on both lines. It will still work, but you will get this error.

Hi, my name is Uwe Gemba. Our duet sport Ht is not draining the water out. error F-21.


"F21" is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be displayed. This may be an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:


1.First, attempt to unplug the washer for at LEAST 30 minutes to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code returns, proceed to step 2.
2.Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
3.Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
4.Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.


If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump.

Hi,
The error indicates that there is no water detected entering machine or Pressure switch trip not detected..If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine and then valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed.

    2. Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves
    3. Verify inlet valve operation

  • If there is water in the unit:
    1. Verify Drain pump operation
    2. Pressure Switch Hose is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and Pressure switch
  • Verify there is not a siphon problem
  • Verify wire harness connections to:Inlet Valves, Pressure Switch, Drain Pump, Flow Meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check all hoses for possible leaks
  • Verify pressure switch operation
  • Verify flow meter operation
  • Verify CCU operation

Thank you

First 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

I have a Whirlpool duet HT front loading automatic washer, it's not draining & last time it did this a repair man came and showed me how to get underneath and drain it, but I don't remember how


The following link explains how to access the drain pump on a Whirlpool Duet front loader to clean out the trap:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385844-checking_drain_pump_kenmore_elite_front

If you are experiencing drainage issues and cleaning the pump does not work, you may have to replace the drain pump. You will usually experience an "F2", "SUD" or "F21" error code (depending on model number) for a drain blockage problem. Since this error code occurs when the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump motor or impeller becomes damaged, the pump will not pump at the required volume and the error code will continue to occur. Replacement pumps can be purchased on line at:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between these sites, so shop all of them for the best deal.

NOTE: Make sure you also check the drain hose and the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the drain pump. Small articles of clothing can commonly get lodged in this area.

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