Whirlpool Duet WFW8300SW04 turns itself off after 10 seconds

6 posts in this topic

My Duet turns itself off about 10 seconds after I start it.  It doesn't matter what cycle I try.  I do hear a beep when I press start but am not hearing the loud click I am used to when it normally starts. I guess this is the door lock??  Anyway, any ideas?

 

Thanks,

Blindside

First, check to make sure the mechanics of the lock are not broken. Second, you will have to check the lock soenoids--about 50 to 60 ohms--working from memory.

Thanks all.  I ran the self-diagnostic and the fault pointed to the door switch.  I have removed the door switch.  60 ohms between pins 2 and 3. Open between 1 and 3.  I have ordered a new door switch. Should be here on Tuesday.  Will keep you posted.  The L-78 Job Aid was a great help!

 

Thanks again for your replies.
