Whirlpool duet - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


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.

F6 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.


E1 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.

For replacement parts - head on over to SearsPartsDirect.com - PartSelect.com - or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.


Hope helps.

Hi,
"F30" indicates "DISPENSER SYSTEM ERROR" When the dispenser motor cannot be driven to its proper position this error appears in your washer. To fix this problem follow these procedures.
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 2. Check mechanical linkage from dispenser motor to the top of the dispenser. 3. Check wire harness connections to the dispenser motor and Central Control Unit (CCU). 4. Check dispenser motor for powered rotations.

Thank you !!

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!

According to the manufacturer, the error means the door could not lock. Check the door for obstructions when you close. To remove error, reboot the washer.

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.

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.

Hi mrcooperdog,
The diagnostics for a front loader is pretty simple. I have enclosed a link to a similar machine.
Watch it carefully and do it afterwards.
Good luck!

is the door lock light on?if not the lock switch may be bad, or the board may not be sending power to the switch.a volt-ohm meter must be used to test the system.

Whirlpool Duet... | Answered on May 17, 2019


well..based on what you're stating here..sounds more like a sensor, based on the duty cycle.

Hello

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.

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.
