I have a Whirlpool washing machine, (Duet model #GHW9150PWO)

This answer was rated:

I have a Whirlpool washing machine, (Duet model #GHW9150PWO) and all that it is doing is on the readout, it reads 8:88. There are no troubleshooting codes. I emptied the drain to the pump, held in the reset for three seconds, unplugged it for at least 1/2 hour, turned off the circuit breaker, all with no help.

Hi, thanks for using So, just to verify, this 8:88 will not cancel out if you press cancel?

The 8:88 seems dim and it doesn't matter what buttons I push, it won't reset or cancel out.

Okay, you have a faulty machine control. The part number is(NNN) NNN-NNNNand it is part # XXXXX in the attached diagram. It is available at or from your local parts retailer. It is accessed by removing the three T15 torx screws from the rear of the top cover. Slide the top towards the back about 3/4" and it will lift off. The machine control is mounted at the rear of the machine on the brace.

You should have no worries....this is a common failure.
