Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

The machine will not finish the cycle. There is a blinking green light that says F-28. The door will not unlock to get the clothes out either. Even when there is no electricity to the machine. I cant find the manuel. Shirley Pettett

Hi,

This is a bad error. Unplug the machine for few minutes, say 15 minutes and then turn it ON. If the problem persists, it is now a good news.

F28 is a serial communication error between the motor control and the machine control board.

The Check all connections between the boards--- if everything looks good 95% of the time the board that is bad is the machine control board NOT the motor control board. Replace and access this part by taking the top panel off--- it is held in by a few screws coming in from the back holding on the top of the unit.

If you are not very handy or a mechanic you may want to have a hands on tech do this work.

Possible Causes/Procedure
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check wire harness connections to the MCU, the motor, and
Central Control Unit (CCU).
– Check connections of the CCU board within the housing.
– Make sure all grounding switches are engaged.
3. Check the drive system for any worn or failed components.
4. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
5. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any
cycle.
6. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor.
7. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.
8. Check that the serial harness at the MCU is not mounted
upside down. The wires should be to the left when facing
the MCU connectors.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I load the clothes into the washing machine, I turn it on select cycle and the door locks and will NOT unlock. The door will however unlock after the cycle is finished.


Not sure if you're unable to open the door AFTER you stop the cycle. That may be normal operation as a safety measure (won't open until after your cycle has completed). However, if your model DOES allow for opening the door during cycle operations then your electronic door lock may be defective.

Bosch axxis door won't open


michele99, So when you put it on drain, do you here the machine trying to drain the water? After it finishes draining, (you have to wait a few minutes, it should then have a blinking light
on the Finished/Door locked light.
Are you waiting for it to finish?

Do you have the "easy iron" feature on? If so, the clothes will stay in water until you manually rinse it.
