F22 error persists on my washer, does the door gasket have to do with it?


F22 is usually a door latch error on Kenmore washers so you are working on the right area. The door gasket rip should not cause that unless it is stopping the door from closing all the way. It is usually the door latch itself which has switches built into it that causes that error or the main board is not reading the latch operation.

Code f22 flashing when i try to start load. the door seems to lock fine


unplug washer and let set 30 min. should reset. plug in, turn on then turn off a couple of times to see if doorlocks and unlocks properly. If not you may need a new switch. That F22 is door lock malfunction. You may need to check hinges and see if they are tight.

Whirlpool Duet Ht Problem: Code F22 / Door locked I have unplugged the machine for a 1/2hr and still doing the same thing...


Hi

To unlock the door press RINSE HOLD to manually terminate the cycle. If this doesn't unlock then unplug the washer and try this 1-2 times.
Alternatively try holding the start button to check whether you are getting any error message. If there is no error message then you would need to replace the door latch or check the wiring to the door latch.
To manually unlock the panel first you'll have to Unplug the Washer from the power outlet. Now, remove the lower toe panel. Look for the bottom of the door latch assembly from inside the washer. Check for a tear-drop shaped tab and pull the tab until click is heard, door will now unlatch. Hope this helps... Please post back for further assistance.

What does an f22 error message on my Maytag 3000 series washer mean?


F22 is door lock error. This is usually fixed replacing the door lock. Connection from door lock to CCU (control panel) may also be responsible.

What is code F22 on sport duet washer? The locking mechanizm buzzes a little, and when you push start it's locked and stays locked, and you have to stick your hand up in it to unlock it.Thanks.


Hi,
"F22" is a door latch failure error code. At the beginning of the wash cycle the door will attempt to lock several times. If the latch fails to lock, the washer shuts down and the error code is displayed.

In some cases, the error code can also be displayed if the CCU goes bad. There is a door latch relay on the board that controls the door locking mechanism. The CCU is not serviceable and must be replaced if defective. In addition, make sure all the connector plugs between the CCU and door latch are connected and snug.

Thank you !!

How do I unlock the door of my kenmore Elite H4t front load washer


If the door is locked or jammed and will not open, you can first attempt to unlug the washer for at least 30 minutes to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes the door will become locked if the program gets interrupted during the wash cycle and may just be a momentray glitch. If the CCU reset does not work, there is a manual release you can use to open the door. The following link epxlains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576511-door_jam_on_kenmore_elite_and_whirlpool_

Often, simply using the manual release will reset the door latch and the washer will return to normal operation. If there is a problem with the door latch circuit, there will usually be an error code of "Fdl" or "F22" on the display (depending on model number).

If your washer exhibits any of these errors, the problem is associated with either a defective door latch, defective Central Control Unit (CCU), or an interconnecting cable problem between the two. The following link explains how to troubleshoot the problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r4490349-fdl_error_code

The procedures are the same for an "F22" error. I have included parts resources, if required, and the steps required to replace any defective parts. Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. the first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
