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.

I have a Whirlpool Cbrio top load washer. it won't start it's cycle. Once it senses the load, the lock lid light flashes and it does nothing. can this be fixed?


I would say that the lock has failed. Either the lock itself or maybe the pin or latch that fits into it when you close the door may have cracked / broken. If the machine thinks the door / lid is still open, it wont let you start it.

Cae2743bq will not turn on all lights on and lid lock is lit up


Try this, worked for me! :)

New WHIRLPOOL Top Load Washer
Model #'s CAE2743BQ, CAE2763BQ
Cycle Selector Knob key dance: [CCW=Counter Clockwise and CW = Clockwise]
Start On "NORMAL"
1 step CCW (Left)
2 steps CW (Right, Right)
1 step CCW (Left)
1 step CW (Right)
Stay on "HEAVY DUTY"
(If unsuccessful LEDs will not flash, and you must return the selector to the Normal Cycle position and
wait 4-5 seconds before retrying. )

If you are successful in the process, all LEDs will be flashing
Toggle between HEAVY DUTY and NORMAL until ONLY the RINSE light is on, then press the
START button for about 30 seconds. Machine will then enter CALIBRATION mode for about 2 - 4
minutes. DO NOT RAISE THE LID

Frigidaire FEX831CS Top Load Stacked Washer / Dryer dryer won't start


Hello - Try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and start normal cycle. If this proves to be ineffective, then contact a professional to move forward accurately. Possible causes could be a faulty power cord or house wiring, defective control board, thermal limiter or door switch.

UL keeps coming on the screen, will spin for 1 or 2 minutes and then UL shows up again


Hi, UL means Unbalanced load in Whirlpool Cabrio....
UL is displayed when the machine/motor control detects an off-balance load, and is steady on while the washer runs a mini-cycle to rebalance the load. Display clears if mini-cycle successfully rebalanced the load. If the mini-cycle is unsuccessful, uL will flash until the door lid is opened, allowing the customer to view and redistribute the load....

My Whirlpool Caylpso display is stuck and will not start


You can try unplugging it for at least two hours and then re-starting. Since I moved my washer starting acting up getting stuck at various points in a cycle--sometimes 19 minutes, or 12, or 33, or 3...no rhyme or reason, no specific point in the cycle. My mover is an appliance repair guy and told me to do the unplug thing and it has worked multiple times--not that I enjoy having this happen over and over, but he told me Sears would charge a minimum of 100 to show up at the door, and I don't have that right now. Anyhow, it has only worked if I left it alone at least 2 hours---my new strategy is going to be unplugging it daily...I love the washer but this is nutty.

How long should a normal wash cycle take on the whirlpool duet?


One hour and 10 minutes is normal for your washer. All front load washers take a long time. They wash a lot better than top loaders. So to answer your question.. yes its normal.

Lights but won't start


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.

Whirlpool Calypso - Will not start


You ever hear of dog years? Well Calypso follows those same guidelines. So your machine is 35 years old. These are the Edsel's of washing machine fame. I had a Calypso for 6 1/2 years. 3 pumps, numerous circuit boards, drive motors, phone calls and arguements with Whirlpool, along with machine downtime. I finally junked it and bought a Whirlpool Duet 9200 HT (get the made in Germany machine). A world of difference in wash quality. Fresh smelling unballed clean clothes. The Calypso was removed from the market and the subject of a class action lawsuit. Just Google it and start reading. Get comfortable first. There's a lot to read.
