Have a Whirlpool Duet washer model no WFW9200SQA12 that I have a problem with.When it starts it will start filling up and the wash cycle will start,sometimes it will wash down from 50 on the display to 37 and will flash F-20 and stop.Other times it will wash down to 22 on the display before flashing F-20 code.What is going on with this thing and how do I fix it?Please help

Ok I'll check that hose for a leak .Thanks for the help.

If the water level goes down, then the machine adds water etc then it's a siphon issue or a water leak.
If all else fails I'd look into replacing the water valve... I replace a lot of those for f-20 and the valve just has a slow flow so when it's filling with clothes in it it takes more than the 8 minute fill limit.

In my experience if you have good water flow and no leaks in the pressure hose its a bad flow meter.

Where is the flow meter.I did not see one on this machine.

i would check twice for a siphoning issue if we are sure the pressure switch hose and water flow is good

Still having problems.I got a water level switch and hose and changed them out.I ran the washer with it empty set on normal wash,cold water.When it started it showed 50 minuets on the display.It filled with about half gallon of water and started the wash cycle.It washed down to 37 on the display then flashed F-20 and stopped.I restarted the machine and this time it washed down to 21 on the display and flashes F-20 and stopped.If you put the dial on rinse/spin,it will rinse good and spin down to completion.What is wrong with this thing?

do you have good flow on cold and hot valves? do you have flood safe hoses? even though you have it set to cold the control might want to fill with some hot water to maintain a minimum temperature, happens in the winter with cold incoming water temps

No I only have cold water turned on. Does this machine need both the hot and cold water on?

Ding, ding, ding! Brother sh2 nailed this one with his insightful question about both hot and cold water flow. When the water temperature is too cold, the machine will throw an error because it knows that the detergent will not be properly activated. So it needs the hot water connected to bring the water up to that minimum temperature.
Why don't you have the hot water connected?

The hot water hose is connected but now turned on as this in an addition to the house and the hot water is not plumbed in yet.So I do need the hot water on.

Thank you guys for this info.I'm going to get the hot water hooked up for this machine.Thanks again for all the help and information

Hey, you are welcome! I didn't comment on this thread because I'm still learning about these new models. The front loaders are not bad to work on once you get the hang of it. I'm learning a lot from these guys, they are awesome. This was a pearl to tuck away for a later date. Thanks for all you do!
