Question about Whirlpool WFW9400S
I turn on my whirlpool front loading washer it acts like it is going to start then the door locks and I get this error code. ???? Help please
Whirlpool Duet WFW9200SQ02
Same problem here. Started a load, started filling about 10 seconds, locked-unlocked-locked again, and then F32 code.
Canceled the cycle, and took about 10 minutes to drain what little water there was in it. Turned off the water at the connections, worked just fine on Sunday. Wednesday--nothing.
Unit is about 3 months old.
Plug off the wall. Open up behind, you will see a thin tube coming down from the control panel (pressure switch to be precise) to the waste area below. Disconnect this carefully from the top, blow into it, air should pass thru, it shd not be clogged; refit carefully. Before refitting, fit a similar tube to the pressure switch & blow - you should hear a click; if not there shd be a problem with your pressure switch. Anyway refit your old tube & try the machine.
Dont forget to refit the main exit hose at the position you found it. All you guys are going to rate me....................

After spending half a day trying to nail down the root of the F32 error code on my Whirlpool, I surrendered and went to the parts store. I picked up a new "pressure switch" and also a "drain pump" as I was getting the F21 error code as well. It should be noted that I tested the pressure switch line (all clear) and also pushed a little air through the pressure switch itself and it made the clicking noise it is supposed to make. For those reasons, I was skeptical that the problem was the switch but when i installed the new one and ran through the diagnostic routine....shazaaaam....no more error codes!
So even if you think the pressure switch sounds fine, when faced with a F32 error code, go buy a new switch and get washing.
It should be noted that the service depot knew all about this problem and indicated that Whirlpool knows about it too....

Whirlpool is very secretive about this and you find every code in the book except this one.
What the problem can be:
Unplug for an hour and plug it in again and try.
Normally this clears the error.
The water inlet can be obstructed. That means the filter in or at the end of the hose. Normally it is a filter in the inlet port of the machine
or....... the filter for the drain is plugged /or drainpump obstructed.
Clean this all and it should be over.
In the mean time I am in contact with Whirlpool but it is a pain in the @#@@

F32 code on the whirlpool Duet 9400 ended up being a clog in the pump. I found one of my kids socks. I have no idea how is got past the tub. I hope this helps someone with similar issues.

I have the same problem with this washer. I just got it delivered today. I can't believe it so many people having this issue. This is a bad model?
