    Finally found a wire from a bra in the tub drain hose immediately down from the tub stopping the ball (valve?) from working. So far so good. Thanx guys!! y'all are awesome & definitely saving us some money. Rgds, Dennis

    Help! I cleaned out my filter, do not see anything in the hose. My washer spins and agitates fine, but it does not drain, it makes a clicking sound. It did drain at first, even though it was ticking, which makes me wonder if it really is a bad pump....any thoughts? Is tha pump easy to replace - it looks like it is. Thanks!

    Basically the same thing as described. However, how do I know if it is the lock on the door or the pump has gone out. The washer makes a ticking noise when it goes to spin out and yet the water doesn't go out. Then the door won't unlock and I have to run it thru the codes and catch it to unlock it.

Whirlpool duet washer error code f-02


Error F-02 is a slow drain problem. Remove lower front panel. You will see a circular door. Be prepared for a lot of water and junk, maybe keep some old towels ready. Open, clean out, check pump which comes right behind it - see that blades rotate freely; refit carefully. You are done, for the next six months or so, depending on usage.

Whirlpool Duet GHW9100LW wont spin. Drains fine, but no spin.


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Door Switch
This can cause the washer to agitate but not go into the spin cycle. You will need to remove the door switch to check it. You will perform an ohm reading on the bottom terminals. The reading varies from manufacturers most Frigidaires is around 1500 ohms others like the whirlpool duet is checked at the main control board with the door closed should be around zero ohms. You will need to refer to the tech sheet or service manual for the proper reading.

Main Control Module / CCU
The main control unit is the circuit board located behind the console. If the door switch tests good the main control is usually the problem. Check all connections for a goood tight fit. You will need to refer to the tech sheet or service manual to check this further. The main control is easy to replace.

Motor Control Module

The motor Control Module is located inside the cabinet down near the motor. This recieves the signals from the main control module then relays this information to the motor. Check all connections sometimes a communcation problem is just a loose connection. The Motor Control Module is easy to replace. To check this further you will need to refer to your tech sheet or service manual.

Whirlpool duet GHW9100LW won't start, won't give error code. No locking noise when trying to start, and makes a couple of clicks "in the back" when pressing start in troubleshoot mode. No...


Hi, I've only just come on line to see and glad that you have identified the problem yourself- as you say persistence pays. I'm not even sure that I would have been able to suggest anything myself other than 'are you sure the lock and sensor are physically working?' ;-0) John C

MY WHIRLPOOL DUET FRONTLOAD WASHER BEEPS AND CUTS OFF 2 MINUTES BEFORE CYCLE ENDS DISPLAYING F 02 CODE?


The F 02 error code is a long drain problem. It could be that there is something clogging the drain line or a kink in the line, the drain pump trap is clogged, something lodged in the drain pump or the drain pump not working properly.
Here is some info I found on this site to help me clean out the drain pump trap and to replace the drain pump if cleaning it out doesn't work for you.

My Whirlpool GHW9100LW started making a strange sound and not wanting to finish the spin cycle about a month ago. up until now it will finish off and on. I cleaned out the thing that twists off in front...


"F02" 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 generated as a secondary error. This is an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:

1. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
2. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
3. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.

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

Whirlpool duet washer sport ht - error codes


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.
