Just as homeowners rely on their Whirlpool washers to speed up laundry, business owners depend on theirs to keep linens and uniforms in top-notch condition. When error codes on front-loading high-efficiency washers pop up, it can lead to frustration and the need for repairs. Discover what the codes mean and how to rectify the problems they indicate with these troubleshooting tips.
Error code F/H indicates a problem with the washer filling, which can be caused by frozen lines, closed water supply valves and issues with the water valve inlet assembly, requiring a replacement with compatible washer parts. When F/02 appears, the washer isn't draining properly, pointing to potential issues with a clogged or defective drain pump.
Error codes F/14 and F/15 indicate main control board EEPROM errors and motor control board errors respectively. If the issue is the main control board, washer repair help can be as simple as unplugging the machine for five minutes, allowing the computer inside to reset itself. If the motor control board is the problem, unplug the machine and check the wiring in the back. If after plugging the machine back in for either reason the problem isn't resolved, replace the part in question.
Error codes F/dL and F/dU indicate a door lock and unlock error respectively. In both cases, check the door lock assembly for damage and inspect for loose wiring. If you find no visible problems, the door lock assembly must usually be replaced.
