Lights but won't start

The 'Normal' cycle lights come on and it displays 44 minutes, but it won't start or switch to another cycle or cancel. It's just frozen there.

  • Anonymous Jul 24, 2008

    The "normal" light is on, the time "42 minutes" is shown and this thing beeps about every 20 seconds. I finally unplugged it. While it was still plugged up, it would respond to no commands and seemed to be totally frozen. I have tried plugging and unplugging it several times. It's only about 3 1/2 years old. I can't find a repairman who will touch it.

The problem is with the touch control assembly. It is simple to replace yourself (20min). You can get one through appliancepartspros.com for $109.00 + tax/shipping. Do not call whirlpool. Their price? a whopping $332.00!

I have this machine, and it has had some issues. The sheet used by repairmen is located behind the front cover. To get to it you have to remove the Whirlpool emblem from the front of hte machine. It is a piece of rubber, just pry it with a screwdriver. Remove the screw, and slowly lift up the top coever. Do not go to far, if you do you can pop the metal hinges on the back. These will just reattach if that happens. The sheet is taped to the front in a plastic bag. You will find diagnostic codes and a bunch of other stuff that make troubleshooting this machine easier. Good luck. I hope this helps.

My Kenmore front load washer will not fill--it sounds like it is draining instead. The last load washed did not spin correctly and the clothes were very wet when cycle completed.


Washer Not Filling:


  • Door Not Closed and Locked
    • Front load washers won't fill if the door is not closed and locked. Listen for the door locking when starting a cycle, then pull on the door to make sure the door is closed and locked.
  • Delayed Start Feature
    • Some washers have a delay prior to filling, where the electronic control is checking the dispenser function. This is Normal.
  • Flashing Lights or Error Code on Display
    • When there is a filling issue, the washer may shut off and display one of the following codes: LF, LE, nF, IE, FH, E10 or F20.
    • If the washer is displaying one of the above error codes, then do the hard reset procedure listed below.

If the appliance is not accepting input from the control panel, follow the steps below to reset the control:

  1. Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
  2. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet or turn the breaker back on and wait 30 seconds.
  3. Press the Pause / Cancel / Stop button twice to clear the display.
  4. Start a short cycle, to check operation of the appliance, by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the appliance starts.

Cancel programme, maybe you have an 'end of cycle' button. Switch machine off & take off plug from the wall socket for 15 minutes. Re-start programme with 'spin only', to rinse out your clothes.

I hit cancel in the middle of a cycle and now it keeps saying F1


From the maytag website: 

To remove the error display, press Power/Cancel or Pause/Cancel twice.

If Power/Cancel or Pause/Cancel does not work:
Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
Plug in washer or reconnect power.
Re-select the cycle and press Start/Pause.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, call for service.

My Duet washer doesn't run through the entire spin cycle on heavy duty setting. Clothes come out of washer, naturally,WET!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seems to spin out better on the normal cycle. spin cycle dosent...


If the drain time exceeds eight minutes, the water valves are
turned off and “F/02” is flashed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL two
times to clear the display.
NOTE: After four minutes the “Sud” error will be displayed,
then four minutes later the “F/02” error code will be
displayed.



Possible Causes / Procedure
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged
or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make
sure the pump is running.
4. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.

Washer stopping mid-cycle with no error


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 have 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. F-21 filter blocked.

Yes. I replaced the control panel (the panel with all the cycle buttons on it). I downloaded the technician's manual from whirlpool and went through the troubleshooting to find the problem. Th part costs around $106.00. Just make sure you order the right color.
