This looks like a classic whirlpool control board issue. fault is a communication error between board and panel. check connections.
whirlpool always recommends replacing both at same time. very common problem.

Kenmore elite he5t front loading washer door locks, unlocks, then locks again before beginning cycle


This is aself test procedure on the door locking mechanism . You will also hear a click, the drum will make a partial turn,and the door will unlock berore locking again. Once the door has locked a second time the washer will begin tumbling and adding water. The sensing process will continue until the correct amount of water is added to the load.

I have a kenmore elite; suddenly when I try to start it, it makes a few clunking noises and the F22 error code appears


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Whirlpool (Kenmore) 'F16, 18, 20, 21 and 22' all refer to 'control unit failure I'm afraid. Sounds like a service call is required, sorry ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Washer gives code F22. I replaced the door lock mechanism but it still will not start.


Hi, F-22 means that the CCU /touch pad/LED assembly unable to transmit/receive
data to/from the CCU central control unit
Possible causes/procedure:
1. 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.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the
touch-pad/LED assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU).

Keep getting F22 I removed lower front , found door release, opened door I cleaned catch, removed and checked impeller Checked electric connections under the hood Still get F22 code


You likely have a faulty door lock assembly, which is what this fault code is telling you. Most often caused by a faulty switch within the lock assembly itself, you will need to replace the entire assembly. The part is available HERE .

What does F22 error mean?


This fault code denotes 6 failed attempts at locking the door. I have found that this code is typically indicitave of a failed lock. Check the strike on the door to be sure nothing boke on it, and if not get a replacement door lock assy for your machine. You will see the three screws that hold it in and can remove the front spring clamp from your door boot to give yourself access to the door lock.

Good luck to you on this!!

Door locked model he 2t


F22 error code means that the door lock mechanism is not functioning and the wiring has probably come loose. Open the top (2 screws in back) and you'll probably find (as we have now 3 times) that the wires and door lock mechanism have come loose (no wonder with the vibrations of the spinning drum!). Plug it back in yourself and save the annoying repair bill! Make sure to unplug the washer before you attempt it...
