Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

I have a Whirlpool WFW 9400SW02 front load washer. It won't start. After pushing the power button, there are only three "beeps". I replaced the door switch, and the problem remains the same. This morning, I run the diagnostic and get C:00. Finally, it gave F70.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet Front Loading Washer Won't Turn On

Tool: We cut a piece a wire about 10 inches long from a wire clothes hanger. On one end we bent 1/2 inch of the wire in a 90 degree angle with needle nose pliers. On the other end of wire we put another bend at least three inches.(this end will be your handle end) Process of using homemade tool to release latch: Make sure washing machine is on a wash cycle. Use flash light to locate latch in the locking catch. Insert the small bend of the tool into the locking catch. Then hook onto the latch and pull out --apply a small amount of pressure -- about three lbs of pressure) Then at the same time you are pulling, press in on the door release button (the little white button above the latch hole where you now have the wire inserted). As your are pulling with little pressure on the latch, hold the little white button in and press the start /stop button. You should hear the door lock. Let machine start working. (about ten seconds) Now push start/stop button again and you should hear door lock release. Your lock catch should give away. This worked for us.

SOURCE: Pushing Start Button only results in "Beep, beep, beep"

Actually, what appears to have happened is that somehow the door locked while it was open. I've ordered the door latch mechanism and the repairman is coming as soon as the part arrives. Good thing too. The seal around the inside of the drum was torn in places and leaking water. We've ordered that too. Thanks for all your suggestions. By the way - there was no error code at all. Hopefully this will all help someone else.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore HE2

Let's focus first on error codes F22 and F26. Error code F22 is door lock fault and it flashes when the door lock fails to activate after 6 attempts while F26 flashes when the door switch is opened for more than 5 seconds while the door is locked or when the door is not opened after 3 consecutive cycles. Since you cannot do 3 consecutive cycles without opening the door, this may indicate that the door switch contacts are welded together. But both error codes may also indicate a malfunctioning CCU or any other component such as the motor controller unit (MCU).

Disconnect power then start troubleshooting the machine by disconnecting the MCU wire harnesses (MI3 and MS2) from the CCU then reconnect power and start the machine. If error codes F22 and F26 go away, then the MCU must be the culprit, replace it. If the error codes do not go away, disconnect power then test the continuity of the terminals of door switch harness DS2 both with the door open and close. It must have continuity, if the door lock and switch assembly is good, when the door is close and none when the door is open. Also test the continuity between the terminals of connector DS2 on the CCU and it should read open.

Proceed with the troubleshooting of the door lock switch and solenoids if the door switch contact is open when the door is open and close when the door is close. Disconnect power then disconnect the door lock switch harness from connector DLS2 on the CCU. Jump a wire between the terminals of DLS2 on the CCU then close the door firmly. Reconnect power then start the machine.

Post back the result of the tests and your observations about the behavior of the machine as you do the tests. It will help determine which part is causing the problem.

Please make sure you accept the solution which you found the most helpful and informative. Failure to do so will automatically give credit to the last solution viewed no matter how unhelpful and non-informative it is. Accepting a solution will not prevent you from communicating with the expert at no further cost. You can still post clarifications and follow-up questions as long as you need further assistance regarding the problem stated herein.

I just need a user manual for the whirlpool w500 front load washer

Most Whirlpool manuals are available from . However, w500 is the series and you need the model number. It will start WFW (Whirlpool front washer). Check inside the door on the rim of the washer tub for this information.

I hope this helps.

I'm trying to remove the front panel on my front load washer. The model number is WFW 9200 SQ 01. How do I change that electronic control board that is behind the buttons you press to opperate it?

you dont need to remove the front of the washer to get to the control board. remove the top panel by removing the screws at the top in the back. top panel should now slide off. control board will now be visible.

My front loading washing machine started and then displayed f1, now it will not start at all and when I pushed the start button it beeps three times and does nothing.


The "F1" error code on the Whirlpool cabrio is quite common, and generally has to do with the control board. Replacing the control panel may resolve this issue. However, I believe Whirlpool is aware of the F1 issue with the Cabrio, and is fixing some machines for free. Please call 1-800-253-1301 for more details and see if you are eligible for a free repair.

Thank you !!

Whirlpool Duet will come on but wont start on any cycle!

Does it beep at you three times when you push the start button? If so it is most likley the door latch. If not then there is problem with the user interface board or the ccu and both are expensive parts and you may want a tech to come out and verify which you need.

Whirlpool Duet front load washer won't start

The error codes it is showing don't even exist. Does the little round door latch plunger go in and out if you push it?If not, then replace the door latch. If so, you most likely have a bad machine control. Please contact me if you need further help or leave feedback if appropriate as that is how I get paid. Thanks for letting me help you!
