Make sure the power is off,open the oven door,look up and remove any screws that's holding the control panel in place.remove the knobs and if any screws are in the side of the control panel remove them.you should be able to access everything from the front,just take your time,look around and remove the screws holding down the control panel,i just worked on one this morning,there was three screws on the bottom and one screw on each side and the control panel came off but it was a different model number but i got at everything from the front.good luck with your machine

    Hey thanks alot for the info. I was told to gain access from the back but that didn't make sense to me because what I am replacing is in the front.

  • Sal DeAngelo May 21, 2011

    whoever told you to go in through the back probably thought your clock assy. and touch pad was on the top console.that's why it's important to send the model number so i can look up your machine.also on some models you have to lift the top to get at the front console,i don't know what the engineers where thinking on some of the appliances i've worked on,it's like they never thought that some day some one will have to replace a part on the machine.ha,have a great weekend and if you have any other questions that i can help you with i'd be happy to help.

My whirlpool cabrio whirlpool cabrio washer model wtw7320yw0 will not turn on when plugged in. It worked fine 3 days ago, any ideas??


It'll very likely be either the touchpad or the main machine control board (motherboard ). Take off the console (3 screws on the back side of the console ) and remove the back side of the touchpad cover. It's white and is held on by 3 phillips screws . Look for visual damages to the touchpad (the circuit board you just took the cover off of). If you see any, definitely the touchpad. If you see NO burnt spots or corrosion on the touchpad, then you should replace the motherboard.

Receiving an E0 error code when trying to clean a Whirlpool Accubake oven


Hello,



The EO error code means that the computer thinks a button on the touchpad is stuck. Sometimes this can be resolved by making sure the touchpad connector fits tight into the control board. The EO code can be cleared by pushing CANCEL/OFF. If it returns the touchpad needs to be replaced .

Ge microwave HVM1540DN1BB button control pad stopped working


I am not familiar with the Whirlpool microwaves; however, I just had the same problem with an LG over the range microwave. Several of the positions on the touchpad quit responding to touch. In our case, it was the touchpad itself that was the problem.

The touchpad on our microwave was held in place with adhesive. We pulled it off and replaced it with a new touchpad. Everything works now. The only complication is getting to the connector which carries the signals from the touchpad to the microwave controls. We had to remove and dissassemble the door to get to that connector.

The touchpad cost about $26.00.

I have a whirlpool duet sport and I'm getting error code F21 and it will not spin out water I even tried the cleaning cycle and it does it there too?


This error occurs if the touchpad/LED assembly is not able to transmit/receive data to/from the central control unit (CCU).

Possible Causes / Procedure

1. Check the touchpad/LED assembly by selecting different cycles and changing the modifiers and options available to confirm the touchpad/LED is responding.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the touchpad/LED assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU).

Replace failed component.(You will need to replace the CCU, if these errors persist)
