I have a Whirlpool Duet front loading washer, model

Customer Question
I have a Whirlpool...

I have a Whirlpool Duet front loading washer, model #GHW9100LW2, that won't drain and flashes the letter F. It stops with 11 minutes showing on the rinse cycle and beeps repeatedly. The door is locked. I tried pressing cancel twice with no change. I tried unplugging it then replugging. No change. I finally left it unplugged for 10 minutes then pressed cancel to get the door to unluck so I could get the clothes out. I tried to run just the rinse/drain cycle but it makes a weird clicking noise and the inside tub doesn't spin. I had to get a bucket to remove the water.

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

I purchased it in 2004. The model number is *****

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

Yes I just don't know what's wrong and what parts we need.

the lower panel has two screws on the (bottom ) of the panel ,just remove the two screws and pull the panel off , the pump and filter is right on the base of the unit.

I will have to wait until this evening when my husband is home and can help. Will I have to pay again then?Can you tell me how to get the code? My washer just flashes F with no number or anything after it.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 10 months ago

You say that you have a F then an 11 correct?

Then if so the error code would be F11 the 11 is not minutes left in that cycle.

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
No, it just flashes F with no number after it. The rinse cycle stops with 11 minutes left. No F11.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 10 months ago

And just reply back to me thru your E-Mail just like you are now and I will replay back to you as soon as I see it!

If the washer is flashing F the number is ***** error code.

Once the display shows an F it will NOT show any time left the 11 is part of the code .

F11
