1. Advance the timer knob to the drain increment.
If the drain pu'mp does not run, check safety circuit.
If the drain pump runs go to step 2.

2. Turn the water off to the washer.
Remove electrical power from the washer and remove the back panel.
Remove the motor drive belt.
Reconnect electrical power and set the timer to the start of the regular wash cycle and pull the knob out.
If the motor runs check for a poor connection in the timer line switch or door lock switch.
If motor does not run go to step 3.

3. Remove the four pin plug from the speed control unit.
Measure the voltage drop between pins 2 and 4.
If the meter reads 0v, check the motor thermal cut out.
If the meter reads 120vAC go to step 4.

4. Remove the nine pin plug to the speed control unit.
Measure the voltage drop between pin 6 of the nine pin plug and pin 4 of the four pin plug.
If the meter reads 0v, check timer contact 11 to 11a.
If the meter reads 120vAC go to step 5.

5. Measure the voltage drop between pin 3 of the nine pin plug and pin 4 of the four pin plug.
(Leave meter connected for more than 4 seconds)
If the meter reads 0v, check timer contact 24 to 24b.
If the meter reads 120vAC go to step 6.

6. Remove electrical power from the washer.
With an ohmmeter check the resistance between pins 1 & 3 of the four pin plug.

GE Washer WPRB9220C0WW Giving E43 Failure Code

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Washing Machine Repair 13 May 2011 · 2,625 views

The failure code indicates excessive brake time. The problem will either be in the speed sensor or in the transmission / brake assembly. It's easy to test the sensor to determine whether or not it's good, here's the procedure:


Speed sensor input is also used by the electronic control board to calculate brake stop time. If, within a
1-year period (400 washes), the control board detects 3 stop times in excess of 25 seconds, the control
will determine that a catastrophic brake failure has occurred. The unit will immediately be disabled and
will display error code E43 on the Digital Seven Segment Display (DSSD). The unit will power up, but
no cycle selection will be available. The unit will remain disabled until the error code is reset using
service mode.

To test the speed sensor:
1. Place the unit in service mode and index to the Spin Fast Test.
2. Press the START pad and monitor the DSSD.
An rpm displayed on the DSSD indicates an operating speed sensor. No rpm displayed on the DSSD indicates a faulty speed sensor or faulty wiring.
When replacing the transmission, the speed sensor and magnets must be transferred to the replacement transmission.

Tips for troubleshooting a Whirlpool Duet Sport front-load washer: error codes, tech sheet location, and F28

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Washing Machine Repair 05 May 2011 · 2,661 views

On the Duet SPORTS, if they don't have a LED digital display the flashing washing status indicator lights is giving you an error code depending on which of the status lights are flashing.

If you remove the lower panel there should be a tech sheet in a plastic pouch glued to the lower kick panel.

It will have all the Fxx error codes that you would see if you had a display, under each code it should tell you what flashing lights would indicate that particular code. The tech sheet also has all the info you need to put it into diagnostics and check for any prior stored errors codes.

If you try to run the machine or do any diagnostics you must either reinstall the lower kick panel or tape the ground loop switch in the lower left corner closed, (if you don't you will get false F28 communication errors).
