Re: whirlpool duet sport front load washing machine
F-01 is a communications error between the CCU and EEPROM.
The first thing to try is unplugging the machine for 5 or 10 minutes. If that doesn't fix it, you'll need a new CCU (probably need to replace that anyway). Though if you just got it 2 days ago, call the store you bought it from - they should replace it (and help you get it open to get your clothes out).

see this and fix it. God bless you This code indicates that the washer door has not been closed properly.
Check to see if there are clothes blocking the door, or if the door
needs to be pushed harder to trigger the latch. If you cannot close the
door, you may need a replacement latch.
Door unlock error. The machine tried 6 times to unlock the door. Must be an item of clothing jamming the door. take the bottom panel off and reach up and grab the emergency ring, GENTLY release the door amigo. Use this GUIDE for repairs and use your tech sheet inside that base panel for error codes and diagnostics.
If your door is already locked and you get an "F" error press and hold
the cancel button, and select drain/spin. If this still doesn't work
and your clothes are trapped inside do not resort to getting out the
crow bar and a sledge hammer. (Though you may really feel like doing
just that). You can manually unlock the door by following these steps:
Unplug washer or disconnect power. - Remove the lower kick panel. -
Reach up along the inside of the front and locate the bottom of the
door switch/lock unit. - Located on the bottom of the door
switch/lock unit is a teardrop shaped tab. - Gently pull the tab down
about a 1/4˝ or until a click is heard. - The door may be now
F28 means your washer is locked and not
unlocking. To unlock your washer take the bottom access panel off by removing
the 3 bottom screws. Reach up near the latching assembly & Attached to the door latch is a little plastic pull lever.
Pull down on this lever and open the door. Unplug your washer for 60 seconds and
plug your washer back in. If the error re-occurs you need to replace your door

I too, had the same issue with the door not opening. My solution was to unplug the power cord and then plug it back in and press the green button's as if to start a cycle and while it starts putting water into the washer I put my knee and weight into the door lock area and held pressure from my knee and press the red stop button until the lights went out, and I took my knee off the door lock area and opened the door!!! No taking off the lower panel.
If this works for you too please email me [email protected].
ME TOO!! Good Luck Talking to Whirlpool! I unplugged mine for a few mins and plugged her back in and it unlocked the door. I have read in here that the F-01 Code is the death code! But I'm still waiting for the repair guy! Good Luck
