Hi,

This same problem (and same codes) come up on the whirlpool duet series washers. On the whirlpool there are bad solder joints (also called cold solder joints) on the control circuit board where the spade connectors and relays that handle communications between the main circuit board and the door lock and motor control. The cure that I've done is to remove the circuit board and touch-up the largest solder points, those would be the spade connectors and relays. If you're not up on soldering techniques, you could remove the board and take it to a good appliance repair shop and they should be able to check it out for you. Good luck.

My whirpool dryer panel comes on but when you push the start button!, it clicks off and then displays the pf code.


PF is a Power Failure error meaning electricity has been interrupted to the machine.

Any electrical interruption to the machine such as a circuit breaker being reset or weather related power outage can cause a PF error code.

To remedy;

Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the PF in the display.

Try to start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button.

If you continue to receive the PF error code, the control board may need to be replaced

The error message "door" is displayed and the machine won't start. I can I reset it.


I have Blomberg WM87120 NBL00 Product code 717518110 and had flashing Lock in display. Bought and installed new lock and no change. Display still flashing lock. Used following procedure and every is working now.
Press pause button and hold down while turning off machine.Continue to hold pause button and turn power back on. If numbers come up on display make note of them for future reference. Release pause button and all lights on display will light up. Turn power off again and then turn back on. If machine was in a cycle it should end it and then return to normal operation. .Dont know if new lock made a difference. Try the reset procedure first.

I've gotten the error code DL and then F, I tried sanding, unplugging but it still shows me the error. How can I fix it?


Hi,
Initially unplug the washing machine.While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for five seconds.
Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the DL code is cleared.

If you still face the problem then follow the procedure:

Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.

Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.

Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.

Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.

After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause].
This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum.

Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.


Hope this helps.

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

    Will start the wash cycle and DL come on and light blinks and lid lock unlock (Whirlpool Cabrio model# WED6400SW)


    Hi,

    "dl"indicates a door lock error. A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be unlocked. It will try to lock it 6 times before displaying the error.
    Check for the following when dl occurs:
    • Door Lock Mechanism broken.

    • Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly for foreign objects

    • Check Wire Harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)

    • Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure


    Thank you !!

    Will not pass the spin cycle


    F01 - There may be an internal problem with the control, attempt a Hard Reset.

    Hard Reset - In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:

    * 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 "PF" in 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.

    The F01 generally indicates a failed electronic machine control board.
    This error code can sometimes be caused by a glitch or power surge through the electrical lines.
    You may be able to clear this code by unplugging the washer for 5 minutes.
    If the code returns after plugging the washer back in, then the electronic machine control board will need to be replaced.

    The procedure for accessing and replacing this control board is shown in this image...

    http://media.fotki.com/1_p,wkwdftgtbkdgfrwxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/ksrttqdqrxkssrqtgsd/1/1303472/5961857/image12917img-or.jpg

    Be sure to unplug the washer before accessing internal components.
    When you access the control board, I recommend transferring the wires from the old control board to the new replacement control board one connection at a time.
    Once you have all of the wires transferred, remove the old control board and mount the new control board in the washer.
    Reassemble and test the washer.

    The "F01" error code indicates a communication error between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the EEPROM onboard the CCU.
    The "F01" can also be displayed if the onboard "Pump Driver" fails to activate.
    Generally in order to correct this failure will require replacing the CCU.
    There is no way to test and verify if the control board has failed.
    The technical data sheet basically states to replace the CCU.

    Electrical problem


    Teecee, F11 is a communication error between the main board and the motor control board. The main board is on top and the motor control board is behind the lower panel. Sometimes the harness to these boards become loose causing this error. You would have to get at them and reseat the connections. F dl has to do with the door lock mechanism. You might of just had the door open when you reset the machine. To get at the main board on top you have to remove the 3 screws in back for the top. It will then slide back and off. To get at the motor control board, you will have to remove the bottom panel. The board will be in the back. Catriver..post back.
