It appears that the original fault was actually a sensor and not the board.
You will need to test the sensors to find which one is faulty.
If you use an ohm meter you will soon find the culprit
OL means open circuit
0.000 short circuit
300 to 700 ohms is ok

How do I fix my whirlpool duet washer that is showing a F20 code . We recently installed a new water softener, could there be residue or something from the old that is causing this?

F20 Control relay for motor controller faulty This fault code is only displayed on washing machines that have a CIM, BPM or Direct Drive motor fitted and an external motor control unit is used.
The main electronic control unit has failed to detect the relay that switches the motor control unit on and off has operated correctly. This relay is fitted on the main electronic controller and it is highly unlikely that there is an issue with the electronic board that controls the drive motor.
  • Check wiring and all connectors between the motor and main electronic control units
  • Replace main electronic control unit

What youre experiencing is a common main control board failure.
The main control board for this model is no longer produced. But, don't scrap your refrigerator because new control boards are no longer available -- Save your appliance and high replacement costs and let us remanufacture the control board for you. This is a common control board failure that can repair. We remanufacture the main control board in your model and back our work with an industry leading two year warranty.

WMG30GS Whirlpool microwave display

please follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
  1. Main control board If the display on your microwave has gone out completely this is usually a sign that it is a malfunctioned main control board. To correct the issue the main control board would need to be replaced.
  2. Display board A display board can either malfunction completely or partially, causing two separate results. If the display on the unit has completely gone out, this can be attributed to either a bad main control board or display board. On the other hand, if the display has only partially gone out, this is usually a sign that the display board is defective and will need to be replaced

The fault code indicates that the control has failed. Erc/ clock main board.
Before replacing try unplugging for 1 minute then turn back on if code reappears you need to replace the main control board.

Whirlpool model: rf385pxdz My oven will not work, First It displays "door" then displays error code "EO F7"

Hi. This is a possible control board issue. First i would advise to check the wiring at the door switch mechanism, and control. Make sure the wires that link the control to the actual door latch assembly, are connected well, and are not lose. If the wires are Ok, and not corroded, simply replace the main control board.

No power, even though it is plugged in. The breaker box had no flipped fuses.

they can trip inside you can't see it so flip them on fast and hard push off very hard to reset
