Default Whirlpool Duet F32
Model Number: WFW9200   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: Less than 1 year   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Washer locks the door and starts to fill, after a few seconds it unlocks the door and relocks the door. Then it displays an F32 error code.

It will happen on all cycles, pulling the plug doesnt help either.

Water hoses are new and are not kinked. House water press is 45psi.

Any Ideas?

Thanks,
---Ralph

Take the botto panel off, and there will be a cheat sheet. I cannot find that code online. If you find the sheet, tell me what it says. You can reach me at my website at ********************************************

I was also unable to find the code online. The owners manual says it's a door lock code.
The door locks. Is there a sensor that confirms the door is locked?

Eitherway whirlpool will be out on saturday.

Had the same problem. Repairman just left. F32 is the code for Pressure Switch Failure. Which was only found on his tech computer. Remove the top panel from the washer by removing the three screws in the top back of the washer. Inside the back right corner is a round plastic box, either black or white, that is the pressure switch box. Check to make sure all the quick connect wires are connected and tight. Unplug washer to reset it. If the cycle fails still with the F32, you'll need to get a new Pressure switch box. If that doesn't fix it then it could be the control box( the bigger rectangular box in the front right that the wires connect to.) Good Luck and Happy Washing! I'm off to do some of that right now.

Default Whirlpool Duet Washer Door/Error F21

Mines was having a simular problem. It would act like it was about to run then stop and flash an error. I called in a repair service and it was the door switch.

Default Whirlpool F32 error code

F32 is a pressure switch failure. My washer had this same error code. The switch determines how much water to let into to washer. It can be broken or as in my case some how it reversed its output, meaning an empty washer was "thinking" it was full, thus locking the door. I found this out because i tested the pressure switch. The switch is a round plastic part, (about the size of an average hand palm) mounted on the right panel towards the back right corner. Remove the switch by disconnecting the wire harness and the thin rubber tube connected to it and gently rotate it 90 degrees CCW and you should be able to pull it out easily. You test it by checking two things; Blow on the inlet that was connected to the rubbet tube, if you hear a couple of clicks and are eventually met with blow back pressure then it passes the first test. The second test is to measure for continuity between pins 21 and 22, meaning if you take an ohm meter and connect the leads to these two pins it should read zero, if it reads zero then it passes the second test and is more than likely good. Next you have to unlock the door by taking the bottom cover off and reaching inside on the right side of the door for the door latch assembly and feel for a small circular tab and gently pull down on it. It will unlock the door. Disconnect the washer from the power outlet and run a diagnostic test on the washer, the process for this is different depending on your washer but my whirlpool instructions where on the inside of the washer. Before you run the test make sure the wiring harness is connected but the rubber tube is disconnected. The washer will lock up immediately if the tube is conneceted, even before you can start the diagnostics test and you will have to start all over againg from cycling power to the washer. The first step of the diagnostic test is to lock the door so if it is already locked it will be stuck in an endless loop. If you do it properly the door will be unlocked and once the diagnostics starts it will lock, but remember that the rubber tube has to be disconnected. Once it gets past the locking step (C01) connect the rubber tube, if you dont the washer will fill itself to the top with water, that is a sign you did it wrong, it should only fill with water for a 20 seconds or so. press cancel if this is the case and start again. if it runs the diagnostic all the way through with out an error then it should be fixed. That is what i did and i avoided buying the part or calling an expert. Im no expert just a guy that can read instructions and likes to play with electrical and mechanical gadgets. It was all trial and error on my behalf but it worked.

Thumbs up Thanks Rodjazzz

Don't do laundrymats, thought this was an instant/quick message reply site...wrong. I called a repairman...a quarter left in a pocket that worked it's way out and got stuck in the flow was causing the problem! That was a very, very long time ago...but thanks for the reply.
