SOURCE: Whirlpool duet front load washer, DFL code

Here are the steps to unlocking the door manually
1.Unplug machine
2.remove bottom panel
3.Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the botttom of the door latch assembly
4.Located on the bottom of the door latch assembly is a tear dropped shaped tab
5. Gently pull down on the tab about a 1/4 inch or until a click is heard.
6. You may now open the door.

This code means the door lock mechanism has failed or the central control unit has failed. Replace the door lock mech. first. This should fix the problem. (before replacing anything make sure there is no obstruction around the switch or in the switch.) After the machine has been unplugged it may fix itself. if not replace door lock mech.

SOURCE: whirlpool awm 8125/3 fault code FH

Probably too late, but here it goes:
FH means some cicle is taking too long time.
Replace the inlet electrical valve. It probably wont open enough and the water flow is not enough to fill to level in time. This should cost you 10€ and is easily done by anyone.
Just remove the top of the machine (two bolts on the rear and slide to the back), disconnect the valve (electrical and water input and output), push the lockers and twist the valve free.

Door locked & nothing happens Whirlpool duet wfw8300sw01


hi there,

sounds like the machine has no power at all.

there was no need to break the lock.

unplug the machine
take off the console
check connections from the touchpad to the CCU board
make sure nothing is corroded, burned, bent or pinched
unplug and replug the wiring harness
plug the machine back in and try it again.

let me know if this works.

Random electrical problems, sometimes it works beautifully, sometimes not!


F11 = Communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the
Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly.
.
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check wire harness connections to the MCU, the motor, and
Central Control Unit (CCU).
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.
