Question about Whirlpool Duet Sport HT WFW8400TE Washer

1 Answer

SOS: We bought a used Whirlpool Duet sport washer and dryer, which the owners said were about 2 1/2 to 3 years old. We do not have manual for it so cannot figure out why the washing machine window blinks F-20 and why when we press PAUSE it seems to work harder and so on. Please help. I have tried to get a manual online but seem to just get a run-around.

F-20 on display (Water Inlet Problem-no water or insufficient water supply)

  1. Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle.
  2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
  3. Are water faucets completely turned on?
  4. Are screens at inlet hose connection clear of obstructions.

Unresponsive control panel- Whirlpool duet dryer 4 years old


This advise is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet front loader washers and dryers with a Control Lock problem.

This may or may not be an indication of a serious problem. In the majority of the cases, this is a simple operator error. Nearly all these model appliances have some sort of Control Lock feature on the front panel now. This is a designed safety feature that is used to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. The controls can be easily locked or unlocked by pressing and holding the following button on the front panel:

Whirlpool Duet Washer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Washer - Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Dryer - Press and hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 3 seconds.

These instructions may not be all inclusive for all Kenmore and Whirlpool models, but they are the most common. Chances are, if you have a Control Lock feature, the instructions will be printed on the front panel adjacent to the button that is required to lock or unlock the controls.

NOTE: These instructions may also work for newer model Maytag, Hotpoint, Admiral and Fridgidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your sepcific model.

If the Control Lock feature will not lock or unlock the appliance, unplugging the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes is recommended in order to reset the main control board. In many cases this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches.

Wirlpool Duet Sport Washer shows no indication of power


That happened to mine I had to replace the "brain" of the washer....the part was about $170. I think it is called the control panel.
There is a test you can run...look in the manual.

How to replace whirlpool washer Drum, baffle


Just order a new one from an online parts store and put it in.  The new ones dont screw from behind.  They just snap in. By the way, the rest of the baffles will break as well. So you may as well by a couple.  But there not cheap-You can order them through Sears and pay 23.95 each.
