Customer Question
I have a whirlpool...

I have a whirlpool duet steam washer stuck in f28 mode. The door won't unlock and I need to get the clothes out. I tried unplugging but it stays lockedf 28

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Sorry someone gave me the washer and I don't know the model it's probably about 7 or 8 years old

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yea I was hoping there was a manual release

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No my immediate concern is to get my clothes out as I'm traveling in the morning and need them asap
