ok let`s try unplugging the unit for 5 minutes and see if the unit will reboot the control board and unlock the door.

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
It’s been unplugged for over 30 minutes
It did not reboot
Tried that
Tried breaker box
No change
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 month ago

And you HAVE to use HE type detergent in this model .

none He brands will suds up too much and cause the drain pump to kick in on a flood mode , and the unit tries to drain all the water and detergent out of it .

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 month ago

ok so if it did not reboot ,have you left it run (humming) for over 10 minutes ?

The flood mode runs the drain pump for 10 minutes then turns off .

Bye
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 month ago

And what was the solution you found?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Error codes now flashing
E01. F08
What is meaning?
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 month ago

NO WATER DETECTED ENTERING WASHER OR WATER LEVEL SENSOR TRIP NOT DETECTED.

The washer does not detect water input after 12 minutes of filling.

Possible Causes

• Is water supply connected and turned on?

• Check for blocked or kinked inlet hoses.

• Low water pressure or blocked hose screens.

• Check for proper drain hose installation. Is water siphoning out of the drain hose? Drain hose must not be more than 4.5" (114 mm) into drain pipe.

Make sure drain hose is not sealed into drain pipe, and that

• Check connections from tub to air trap, air trap to pressure hose, and pressure hose to water level sensor

Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 month ago

and the WRONG detergent can also cause this .

Because it creates suds and confuses the water pressure switch .

Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 month ago
