i have a whirlpool duet front loader and im hoping somone else may have had this problem. the washer wont start. nothing will display on the screen and it only beeps when i push the power button. I have tried all the troubleshooting procedures in the manual and also called customer service which btw sucks big time. normally if my husband cant fix it which is extremely rare i would call a repair man but money is really low and i cant afford to. my husbnad has even gotten on the internet and found the service manual for a simalair model but nothing worked. if you have this type of washer and have had this problem how did you fix it? at this point i will safely say i will never buy whirlpool again and this thing will go in the garbage and i will get a kenmore from sears i can fix.
I agree with most of these posts. I believe you have an electronic control issue and the fact that the unit will not reset itself of its own tells me that you might have had a voltage problem that may have basically fried the chip.
On another note: The Kenmore thing... Kenmore is a brand NAME owned by the Sears Holding Company, they do not make appliances. Kenmore appliances are made by a variety of manufacturers that include Whirlpool, GE, Panasonic, LG and Electrolux. Whirlpool manufactures appliance under the names Whirlpool, KitchenAid, Amana, Jenn-Air, Roper and others I've never even heard of.
