I just recently purchased the Duet washer.. I attached everything according to 'spec' but an error code appears.. F37.... and then F28. What is the problem? I didn't think a new washer would give me such grief!!

    ok i am going to need the model number because the codes change with each model. the model number should be under the lid on a white sticker.

    Washer displaying code message and tone sounds

    “F20” (Water Inlet Problem—no water or insufficient

    water supply)

    Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug

    washer or disconnect power.

    Check the following:

    Are water faucets completely turned on?

    Are screens at inlet hose connection to washer clogged?

    Are water inlet hoses kinked?

    Are water inlet hoses frozen?

    Plug in washer or reconnect power. Re-select cycle and press

    START. If the problem remains, call for service.

    “F21” (Drain Problem)

    Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug

    washer or disconnect power.

    Check the following:

    Is the drain hose kinked?

    Is the drain hose frozen?

    Is the drain hose clogged?

    Is the drain hose more than 96" (2.4 m) above the floor?

    Plug in washer or reconnect power. Re-select cycle and press

    START. If the problem remains, call for service.

    “SUD” (Suds Routine)

    When excessive suds are detected, a suds routine

    automatically starts. This routine removes extra suds and

    assures proper rinsing of your garments. “SUD” is displayed

    during rinsing and at the end of the cycle to inform you that

    Suds Routine was activated. Use only HE (High Efficiency)

    detergents.

    “F22” (Front door lock)

    Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle.

    Check the following:

    Is the washer door firmly shut?

    The door must be completely closed for the washer to

    operate. The door may look closed, but may not be latched.

    Open the door and close firmly.

    Were you washing a large load?

    Before you close the washer door, check for laundry items

    sticking out beyond the door opening. Leave enough space

    in the washer to allow the clothes to tumble freely. An

    overloaded basket may keep the door from shutting

    completely. Reduce your load size if needed.

    Press POWER and select START.

    “F” codes other than F20, F21 or F22

    Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Select

    DRAIN/SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer.

    Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains, call

    for service.

I have an F28 error what is wrong


As far as I know F28 error code means - SERIAL COMMUNICATIONS ERROR/MOTOR CONTROL UNIT ERROR. Caused by either a communications problem between the Central Control Unit and Motor Control Unit, or Motor Control Unit internal failure.

Above find a link to your Manual and below find a link to a Video which can assist you in fixing the F21 Error Code

The F28 Error Code could Just be a Fluke But it is supposed to mean that there is no water entering so to be sure before running another load be sure hoses are connected and turned on.

Thumbs up if Helpful and Feedback is Appreciated!!!

Code f28


Hi, the error code F28 means one or both of these parts are bad.
  • Motor Control Unit (8540135)
  • Microcomputer Machine Control Unit (8540788)
It would be a good idea to order both, as both components have been problematic for error code F28. If you find either the MCU or the CCU(Microcomputer Machine Control Unit) fixed it.
