I have a duet sport washer that wont power up. The only thing that will work is the lock out switch and light. I have checked for loose wires and found nothing. I have removed the top of the washer and listened for the click from the CCU and there is one although it isn't very loud ( I would say if the lid were on the machine, I might not be able to hear the click). I also removed all the cables from the CCU and hit them with electronic parts cleaner. I have also checked the continuity on the door switch and found nothing wrong.
I removed the lower cover to check wires and while I was there I checked the filter near the pump and found it full of coins and crap.
Any advice on where to go from here will be appreciated.
Thank You

It worked well before we moved to our new house. Now, nothing

WIll it let you put it into the diagnostic mode?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

I'm not sure how to do that. So far the only thing that works is the red light when I hold the lock out switch for 3 seconds.

See if that gets you in..

No,I tried it with the power switch and the delay wash switch and neither worked

So you can turn the lock out light on and off, correct?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

yes

For the life of me, everything points to a bad CCU on the unit, but happening after just transporting it to a new loaction does not make sense... I mean that anything can happen enroute, maybe jarring something loose in the CCU. I would replace the CCU on the unit, you can click on the blue link below to order the correct part for your washing machine.

Click here for the correct part for your unit.


Repair Clinic offers a 365 day no question ask return policy, so if the repair does not work you can return the part to them for a full refund, yes this even includes electronic parts that many other part suppliers will not allow to be returned.


By purchasing the CCU from Repair Clinic, they will allow you to return it for a full refund if I am wrong, I don't believe I am, but I would want to play it safe...








All I ask of you is to please rate me with one of the top 3 ratings. If there is anything else I can help you with today just let me know. You can continue asking questions for as long as you like even after you rate me. If you are done and rate a 1 or 2 s please consider replying and telling me what more I can do or what more you would have liked that was within my power so that I possibly give you that information or help me improve my customer satisfaction rating. . .

Bonuses are welcome if I have helped you a lot, however they are not mandatory

Could the problem be in the control panel?

That was my first thought, however you can turn off the lock light and back on, I am not saying it is not, but the symptoms are not showing that, there are no tests that can be sure of this problem. I would say more than the lock light would work if it was damaged...'

My CCU has the number W10112075REL will the part you suggested work?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

I replaced the CCU and still have the same problem. I removed the back panel of the washer to double check the wire connections to the MCU and found nothing. I got some advice from another appliance repair forum to disconnect the MCU from the CCU by unplugging the M13 connector to see if the washer would try to power up without the MCU attached to eliminate the MCU as the problem and still got nothing.
I'm not sure what I did but I did get some power to the control panel for a short time. All I got was a number 1 in the display and all the lights lit up. The only switch that would work is the "end of cycle signal button". It would make the beep louder and quieter. That lasted for about 30 seconds then there was a beep and now I'm back to square 1with no power at all.

George, everything is still pointing to the CCU, but again you eliminated the MCU as the problem,,I would then return the CCU and order a User Interface and try that, it would be a first for me, but let me know.....

What is a user interface?


 

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

Does the number 1 showing up on the display mean anything to you?

There is no code with a 1 in it. I have never heard of it..

If I unplugged the MCU and the washer didnt try to start or I got no power does that mean the MCU is ok?

If the unit won't [ower up with the mcu connected then MCU should be okay

OK, I'll order a new control panel and see how that goes.....I'll let you know

I found a control panel for a WFW8300SW04. Will it work in my WFW8410SW01?

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

I did more research and found the answer is no. Looks alike but for some reason it's not a match.

this is suppose to be for your model.

Ok, I've changed the CCU and the User interface and it still wont power up. When I push power I get a 1 in the display window and then the machine shuts off after about 5 seconds. I was able to put the washer into diagnostic mode and everything lights up and a 88 displays in the window.

When you get the 88 in the display, does it blank out on you after a lit bit?
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

Yes. I figure because of the two new components, that it has no history available.

does the door lock for you?
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

Yes, I've done a continuity test on the wires and all seems to be right.

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

I know it latches and it isn't loose. Whether it actually locks, I would say no because I am able to open it with no problem.


 


I am able to open the door when I have the 88 showing on the display and it's in diagnostic mode.


 

It should lock and not be able to be open when in diagnostic mode. it the little button broken off the lock??
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

I'm not sure what button your asking about but on the machine it has a push button that is there and below that is where the door side of the latch slides in.

Be right back
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Above the door lock opening, there is a button, it should be sticking out about 1/2 inch or so..
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

Yes, a push button

I went to a customers home today and checked their washer that is almost identical to your washer, I could put it into diagnostics and do everything with the door closed, however if I tried the diagnostics with the door open, the 88 came up then it shut down a short time later, I was not there for their washer but for their dryer so I tried to see what happens then..
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

So you think my door switch is the problem?

Very possible it is the problem..
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

Ok, I changed the door switch and i'm still getting the same "1" when I push the power button

I am going to opt out, as I am out of possibilities on this problem, maybe one of my coworkers here may know what I am missing...

Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is Kelly and I look forward to helping you! Sorry for the delay in responding to you. One thing that may have been overlooked is the polarity in your wall outlet, especially since you had no issues until moving into the new home. Do you have a meter to test voltage with?
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

I do, but I'm not home right now. I will probably be home late tonight.


Kelly, have you ever heard of a "1" in the display at start up? I've researched the web and evidently I am the first person in history to have this problem.

Lots of strange things can happen with polarity and grounding issues. When you get home, in each outlet, you will see two straight holes, one larger than the other. The smaller hole should be on the right and the round ground hole at the bottom. Test between the small straight hole and the round one. Do you read 120 VAC there?
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

Good afternoon Kelly,


Yes, I do get 122.3v thru the outlet

Did you test the small hole and the round hole?
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

Yes, the small hole and the one on the right. Nothing out of the left


 

Okay, so the ground and polarity are good. It appears that the issue lies with the main control unit. Was it doing the same thing with the old control in it?
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

When I first had the problem I got absolutely nothing out of the power button and was not able to put the machine into the diagnostic mode. Then I changed the CCU, I was able to,once in a while, get the "1" to show up in the display for about 5 seconds then shut back off when I pushed the power button but still no diagnostics mode. When I changed the control panel I could get the "1" to show every time I pushed power and stay on for 5 seconds then turn back off and the machine was able to go into diagnostics mode where i got a "88" to show up. Then i switched the door switch and that changed nothing.

I think it may be worth getting a different control under warranty and try another control.
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

Should I try the original one again? I'm not sure it was bad to begin with. I did get the click when I plugged the machine in.


Could the MCU be my problem?


 

Sure, try the old one again.
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

That did it! Evidently the replacement ccu was either bad or the whong item number. Ill have to send it back. Thanx to you and Chas for the help.
