F22 code ?? duet locks but will not run


Hi,


"F22" is a door latch failure error code. At the beginning of the wash cycle the door will attempt to lock several times. If the latch fails to lock, the washer shuts down and the error code is displayed.
In some cases, the error code can also be displayed if the CCU goes bad. There is a door latch relay on the board that controls the door locking mechanism. The CCU is not serviceable and must be replaced if defective. In addition, make sure all the connector plugs between the CCU and door latch are connected and snug.

Thank you !!

I have a Whirlpool WFW9200SQA12. F22 light


"F22" is a Door Lock error code. This is an indication of a door latch failure and/or interconnecting wiring problem. The first step in troubleshooting the problem, however, is to unplug the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). This is the main "brain" of your washing machine. Sometimes these error codes are erroneous and can be easily cleared by resetting the CCU. If the error code reappears following a CCU reset, then you have a genuine problem. In addition, if the door latch remains locked following this procedure, there is a manual release you can use to open the door. The following link explains:

If you still have the error code displayed, inspect the door latch mechanism for any broken, loose, or missing components. Next, opne the top panel of the washer by removing the three screws in the rear of the washer that hold the panel in place. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then off. Locate the door latch on the right hand side behind the front panel. Inspect the wiring harness from the door lacth the to CCU. The CCU is located directly behind the wash tub in the top rear of the washer. Make sure all the connectors are snug and not loose or broken. In the majority of cases, a persistant error is a failed door lacth. If all these preliminary checks are unsuccessful, replace the door latch. The next link explains how:

NOTE: "Fdl" is the same as an "F22" error code. This error code appears on older models.

I hope you find this information helpful. If you have questions please let me know.

F22


I have search for this and found:

This error code indicates that the door is not locking. 
Is the washer door firmly shut? 
The door must be completely closed for the washer to operate. The door may look as if it's closed, but it may not be latched. Open the door and firmly close it.
Were you washing a large load?
Before you close the washer door, check for laundry items sticking out beyond the door opening. Leave enough space in the washer to allow the clothes to freely tumble. Reduce your load size if needed.
