Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a whirlpool catalyst washer and recently it started blinking an F4 error code..my ? is what should I be looking at when it shows that error code? I have a whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front loader. When washing it stopped and was beeping and flashing F4. I paused the machine waited then pushed hold to start and it finished the cycle. We have had our washer for 5 years (no probs. except for accassional Suds warning when we used a new soap product). The washer does seem to be noisier than when we first got it. My daughter got similar machine probably same but through Sears and she had problems to a point where service call was needed. It appears a lot of debri was removed from somewhere in the machine plumbing and she was back in business. My question is the F4 error mean we should contact a service person (It did work after I paused it and restarted)? Also after 5 years should we have someone service it and the companion dryer just to do routine maintenance?

    I got an answer from some one through Fixya. Some one who said call factory service with a phone number. Of course I could have figured out a repair service could find the problem. I was hoping some one had a similar problem and could give me some advise. I did however find, after much digging on the internet, a solution. The filter apparently had debri in it and was not allowing proper water flow through sensor, thus the error message. The solution did not come up right away had try several different search options through FixYa and found the solution to my problem using (CHECKING THE DRAIN PUMP IN A WHIRLPOOL DUET). The answer came through jsrock516. His solution gave a step by step solution and a means of running a diagnostic. It worked fine and my Duet Washer has been working great ever since. Thank you jsrock516 and thank you FixYa. I can say you have to be creative in searches for solutions.

The F4 error code on your washer indicates a problem in the electrical circuits of the washer... and not end-user repairable.
This problem requires a technician to test the wiring circuits to diagnose the problem.

What does F4 on the display mean?


If "F4" through "F16" appears on the display, there is an electrical problem with the washer. Press the "Pause/Cancel" button twice to stop the washer and press the "Drain/Spin" button to drain any excess water in the machine. Select the cycle again and press and hold "Hold to Start" to restart the washer. This should clear the error and return the washer to normal operation.
If any of the error codes persist, the problem with the washer may be serious. Contact a qualified service technician to repair the washer.

I have an error code f4 on my whirlpool adp 8966 dishwasher can you tell me what it means please


F4 indicates draining failure.Your washer drain pump starts and after 4 minutes the OWI(optical water indicator) detects that mashine is 'not empty'

Posible mailfunction reasons:
The drain pump must be defective/blocked
The siphon would have got closed
The control board would have got damaged
OWI defective

Whirlpool Duet Front loader mdl WFW8300SW00 will not start


I had a variety of error codes show up on my duet, and I'm not sure but I seem to recall a 31, but the most constant was 02. I took off the front cover, pulled the white plug out from the unit, put a bucket under it, unscrewed it and drained it. It may be the MCU is having problems because the washer got plugged up.

Whirlpool gold catalyst washer error code FF


FF on the catalyst models means the following. Let me know if you need more info or would like a link to where you can obtain a service manual for your washer.
If the transducer signals a high or a low water level for more than 16
seconds the washer will shut off and FF will flash.
• Press the RINSE OPTIONS button and select DRAIN/SPIN to drain
washer.
• Check the water level transducer hose and wire connections.
• Also check the pressure dome hose to be sure they are properly
connected.
• Check the water level transducer, see TEST #7.
