Try the following Diagnostic Test first, then proceed to check the CCU and MCU connectors:

F28 is a serial bus error from the CCU (Central Control Unit) to the MCU (Motor Control Unit).

  1. Unplug the washer before servicing.
  2. Using a 1/4 inch socket to remove the top of the machine and the back of the machine, check the connection to the CCU and the MCU.
  3. The CCU is the computer looking box at the top front right hand corner.
  4. Find connector M13, (has red marking on it and only 3 wires) disconnect it by pushing the retainer tab back and pulling gently on the connector. If you see any corrosion, clean it off and then re-assemble connector.
  5. The MCU is in the back lower left corner.
  6. Find the connector with 3 wires and red mark, and remove this connector in the same way you did the other, spray it and re-install.
  7. Put the back and top back on.
If you still continue to have the F28 code, you may have a failed Motor or Motor Control Board.

Not good! Probably motor control board or motor or wiring harness from control board to motor.

Washing stops in cycle with an F28 code.


Hi

This code indicates an electronics communication problem with the washer.Please check this link to get a detailed idea related to the lists of codes and the resolutions to them:-

http://whirlpool.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2885/~/display-shows-an-error-code---front-load-washer

The error code F28 means one or both of these parts are bad.
Motor Control Unit ,Microcomputer Machine Control Unit .
It would be a good idea to order both, as both components have been problematic for error code F28.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

My Whirlpool Duet Front Load Washing Machine is showing a F28 error. What does that mean?


F28 is a communication error which usually means there is a connection that has come loose. Removing the top and unpplugging and replugging the connectors in will fix 75% of these codes. If the bottom toe panel is not on it will also give you an F28
  • Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
  • Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
  • Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the display.
  • Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation when our chat has concluded Thanks again Rick

    I washed a large load in our Whirlpood Duet Washing Machine and it stopped with a flashing F28 code. I unplugged it for 5 minutes and it still will not run a cycle without stopping with a flashing F28...


    The error code F28 means one or both of these parts are bad.
    Motor Control Unit (8540135)
    Microcomputer Machine Control Unit (8540788)
    It would be a good idea to order both, as both components have been problematic for error code F28

    If you find either the MCU or the CCU(Microcomputer Machine Control Unit) fixed it.

    You can download the online repair manual in the below link

    It gives a F28 code. What is that?


    F28 is a motor controller error... Try unplugging the machine for a minute or two, then starting it again. If no good, you can remove the access cover and check the connections to the motor... BE SURE TO UNPLUG FROM WALL FIRST...
