F12 won't drain or
Hi, i'm pretty sure that this would seem to suggest that the pump maybe faulty or that there is a blockage, arm yourself with a large bucket or bowl and take the drain hose from the machine gently lowering it to below the washing machine tub level, make sure the drain hoseis quite flat or level as you do this, lift the hose if you need to stop the water because the bucket is full, empty the bucket and start again until no more water runs, then set about checking the filter for blockages or anything that maybe fouling the pump, if all is clear then it could be a suspect pump,if not clear all debris clean the filter re-insert it and make sure the drain hose is back in place, try the machine on a cycle,let it fill and see if it empties(pump runs), if not, the machine will not take in any further fresh water or do a main spin because there is water trapped in the machine. so you will have to go through the manual drain procedure again as above and try a new pump, there is also the possiblity it could be the main control board or faulty control loom.
If in doubt look for a washing machine technician that maybe able to give you a free quote.
Hope this helps.

I get an f06 and
code is an issue with the motor drive tachometer.
Most often this is caused
by poor connections at the machine control or motor controller. Locate
the main machine control by removing the top panel and the motor control
by removing the rear panel. Remove each connector, one at time, and
reinstall. If this does not work, you likely have a faulty control.
means that the thermistor is open and needs to be replaced.
The connections can be loose but the most likely cause of an E1 error is
a bad thermistor.
If you're comfortable and confident in your
do-it-yourself skills and have access to a volt/ohm meter you can check
and replace this part yourself.

Whirlpool duet washer eating my clothes
We had this problem, and resolved it. It can occur in the washer or dryer. The reason was along the outside edge of the BACK of the drum, there were tiny metal "spikes" that you can feel if you lightly run your finger tips over the whole area. They are likely caused by leaving a loose metal object in the washer or dryer and it banging around. Replacement drums are hard to find anymore, and cost over $600. The cheap and permanent fix is to use a product called Water Weld epoxy by JB Weld, found at most hardware stores, to cover over the spikes. Use sandpaper to first rough up the area a bit so it will stick better, per the instructions. You can see this on the photos. Then mix a small amount following the directions on the inside of the label, and spread it thinly over any area with spikes. It's OK if the surface of the epoxy is rough after drying, it won't damage your clothes, even delicates. We did this over six months ago, and it works great - no more torn clothes! It withstands hot water and dryer heat. Good luck!

F20 machine won't stop
Whirlpool error code F20 appears when no water is detected entering the machine or if the pressure switch trip is not detected. The pressure switch is the part of the machine that monitors high water pressure. The washing machine automatically cancels the wash cycle during an F20 error. Wonder if it has additional issue since it won’t stop quality Appliance repair Stuart Internet answer.

Problem with F21 code on whirlpool duet sport
i had the same problem. take the bottom cover off of the front of the washer. on the right you will see a round white screw off cover, it is very tight, it unscrews counter clock-wise. pull this out and see if there is any debris in it. if you look into the hole on the right side there is a hole about 1 inch round, this is the pump opening. you may have to take the gray drain hose off of the back of the pump housing and feel if anything is stuck in there, in my case there was a penny stuck side ways blocking the flow of water. after i took it out the washer has been running great again. this is obviously a design flaw, that something that large could manage to get that far, lucky for me it didn't damage the pump impeller. hope this helps. this should take care of the SD and the F21 error codes.

Whirlpool front loading duet washer
Error F31 in your whirlpool duet washer is displayed due to MCU (Motor Control Unit) failure. It is displayed if the heat sink gets too hot and then the MCU stops motor, then MCU sends the signal to CCU (Central control unit). Please check the wire connections between the CCU and MCU, if thats fine then check the motor operation. Hope you understand...replacing the part# that has gone bad is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Error Code F8E1 on Whirlpool Duet
f8 is shown when the heater circuit is on with no water in.. it doesnt do it when you unplug the pressure switch because your disabling the heat protect circuit
THE BOARD IS PROBABLY FAULTY
F08 indicates pressure switch stuck on full.
Unplug the appliance from the wall socket.
Take the top off the machine.
Locate the pressure switch, you can identify it by the thin tube attached to it.
Take the tube off, blow down this tube as hard as you can to shift any blockage or restriction in the pressure chamber. Give the pressure switch a couple of good taps with the screwdriver handle.
Refit the tube and try the machine again.
If still doing it, unplug again and follow the tube down.
This end will be attached to the pressure chamber.
Take this chamber off and thoroughly clean it out, clean out the port into the tub too.
Reassemble and try again.
If after this it's still faulty you'll need to start replacing parts.
I'd suggest trying a new pressure switch first.
Failing this, if all of the above fails to resolve the problem you're possibly looking at a faulty main control board.
