whirlpool duet door lock
Model Number: wfw9400sw01 Brand: Whirlpool Age: 1 - 5 years
good afternoon troops,
i have a duet washer model shown above. the other day the door locked and got an f22 error message. f22 means "door lock error" ( wow... i know )
at any rate i trip the manual release and take the lock mechanism out and hold it in my hand and cycle it. it seems to " latch" hard and clean but the little red " door locked" light never comes on and after a second or two the mechanism sort of growls a bit as if somthing inside is trying to cycle but can't but the growls is located away from the solonoid that drives the latch.
a few seconds later the f22 message shows up and thats that.
a new latch assy is only 75 $ or so and i have no problem buying one and replacing it IF i believe that the latch assy is really the problem and not a signal off a board somewhere....
this is a 7 wire system... 2 big pink ones that i believe drive the solonoid , slim blue ones that i THINK run the light signal and 3 black ones ...
first question... is this a common deal and i should just stop agonizing and buy a new latch ?
2nd can i jump across two of these wires to trip the light circuit to confirm the latch mech is the problem
3rd, is there some other diagnostic i can do to try to id the problem ?
GEEEZE JUST REALIZED THIS IS DISH washer NOT clothes... sorry will repost elsewhere...
