Hello
Welcome to Just Answer.


The error code F28 means one or both of these parts are bad.
Motor Control Unit (
8540135)
Microcomputer Machine Control Unit (8540788)
It would be a good idea to order both, as both components have been problematic for
error code F28

If you find either the MCU or the CCU(Microcomputer Machine Control Unit) fixed it.

Here's the online repair manual for your
Whirlpool Duet Sport, but its identical to your HE2.
Give it time to download.
On page# XXXXX it shows how to access your MCU.

hmmm i bought it in july from home depot...front loader model says epic z on the front and it is a HE model
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 8 years ago.
Sorry, but I'm going to step in here. F28 is a serial communication error betwen the motor control and the machine control board. A Maytag Epic Z is the same as a whirlpool duet sport--- they just call them different names but Whirlpool now owns Maytag so many times technicians will refer to products as Whirlpool when they have a different name on them.

The Check all connections between the boards--- if everything looks good 95% of the time the board that is bad is the machine control board NOT the motor control board. Replace and access this part by taking the top panel off--- it is held in by a few screws coming in from the back holding on the top of the unit.
