This model does not have an error code of F-27 but it does have a F72 error code could it be the F72 code?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
in the service manual it does not show a F27 code, that i do know. but the code that appears is in fact F27
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 month ago.

ok if you are 100% sure it is a F27 then the units control was not programmed with that as an error code.

Which would indicate the the electronic control boards software is corrupt and you may need to replace the control board.

Have you unplugged the unit for over 5 minutes to try and REBOOT the control board yet?

If not let`s try that first.

Let me know please!

it has been unplugged even longer and I cant get it to reboot. We did have a power surge here yesterday, all the lights come on except for the timer and when you press the start button nothing happens
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 month ago.


I`m sorry to say but since it did not reboot your going to need to replace the electronic control board .

Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 month ago.

I just got the replies give me a min to answer them

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
no I already spent $38 on this, what is the CO mean that appears on the Screen
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 month ago.

no sure what CO is there is no CO error code.

I assume it is just the electronic control board scrambled!
