Whirlpool Duet Front loader mdl WFW8300SW00 will not start
Washer stopped mid cycle and had an error code. Wife tried to restart and error code went away. However, she has no idea what the code was. Front door locked with clothes inside. Called repairman. He did'nt even know how to unlatch the door. My son thought the code was F-1 which the a problem with hte CCU. Control panel would not show any error code even after unplugging, waiting and powering back up. 15 minutes after he left error code F-31 show up. It is an MCU (motor control unit). All connections good to the MCU, motor and CCU (central control unit). Power up and display looks good but when you try to start a cycle it does nothing. Now I don't get an error code the display just shows the cycle time, the "add a garmet" light is blinking and you can't do anything.
Re: Whirlpool Duet Front loader mdl WFW8300SW00 will not...
I had a variety of error codes show up on my duet, and I'm not sure but I seem to recall a 31, but the most constant was 02. I took off the front cover, pulled the white plug out from the unit, put a bucket under it, unscrewed it and drained it. It may be the MCU is having problems because the washer got plugged up.

F01 - There may be an internal problem with the control, attempt a Hard Reset.
Hard Reset - In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:
* 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 "PF" in 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.
The F01 generally indicates a failed electronic machine control board. This error code can sometimes be caused by a glitch or power surge through the electrical lines. You may be able to clear this code by unplugging the washer for 5 minutes. If the code returns after plugging the washer back in, then the electronic machine control board will need to be replaced.
The procedure for accessing and replacing this control board is shown in this image...
Be sure to unplug the washer before accessing internal components. When you access the control board, I recommend transferring the wires from the old control board to the new replacement control board one connection at a time. Once you have all of the wires transferred, remove the old control board and mount the new control board in the washer. Reassemble and test the washer.
The "F01" error code indicates a communication error between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the EEPROM onboard the CCU. The "F01" can also be displayed if the onboard "Pump Driver" fails to activate. Generally in order to correct this failure will require replacing the CCU. There is no way to test and verify if the control board has failed. The technical data sheet basically states to replace the CCU.

If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and F02 is flashed.
Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
NOTE: After 4 minutes the “Sud” error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F02 error code will be displayed.
• Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked • Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running. • Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects • If the above does not correct the problem replace the pump
f22 is a door lock error try this hit cancel turn your dial to another setting, hit start and once it starts hit cancel again and it should unlock. thats what i did anyway. If you're getting an F22 error, you will want to check anything to do with the door latch switch.
“F20” on display (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?
Do rate the solution.
In many cases these error codes can be erroneous. If you reset the Central Control Unit (the Main Control for the washer), in many cases, the problem will clear. You must unplug the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes in order to do this, however. If an error code returns following a CCU reset, then you have a legitimate problem.
Whirlpool GHW9150P front loader washer keeps stopping mid cycle witht he F06 code. I can get through an entire cycle if there are only two or three items in the washer. My thought is it needs a new motor drive. would you agree?
