Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

The F22 error on the whirlpool Duet models means the computer is recognizing a Door Lock Error which occurs if the door cannot be locked. It will try to lock it six times before displaying the error code. This could be an issue with the wiring between the door lock assembly and the CCU or as in many cases just a failed door lock that needs to be replaced. Unplug the washer or kill power at the breaker. Check the wiring and make sure its tight and the connectors are secure at both the door lock assembly and the at the CCU ( The main board ) if the wiring looks ok, plug the washer back in see if the error clears if not you will need to replace the door lock assembly.

Give me just a moment to find you the replacement part, thanks.
