F28 is a s error from the CCU to the MCUUnit.

remove the lid and the back of the machine.

CCU is the box at the top front right hand corner.
look for connector M13 with a red mark on it and only 3 wires disconnect it and pull gently on the connector.
Spray the contacts of the connector and computer with connector cleaner.
put back together.......

MCU is at back lower left corner.
Find the connector with 3 wires and red mark, pull off this connector , spray it and put it back....should be job done...............

cheers

F28 error code


I have a LG washer and dryer and mine get a PF code for power failure. I don't know if that's helpful or not. Contact the manufacturer for information on what the different codes mean. You can also look at the booklets that came with your machine. A lot of times, manufacturers will have the user manual online at their site.

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
