Fixing a Whirlpool Duet Sport Washer that Won’t Drain

This client called in with a complaint that his Whirlpool Duet Sport washer, WFW9150, was full of water and would not pump out. He was also getting the F9 E1 error code which corresponds to this problem. About 72.4% of problems are caused by something stuck in the pump, jamming the impeller. About 27.3% of these problems are caused a bad pump. The remaining 0.3% of these problems are caused by the pump not getting voltage which could be a bad wire connection or bad controller. Watch with befuddled amazement as The Appliance Guru expertly disassembles the pump, plucks out a broken piece of hair clip that was jamming the pump and restores this machine to its design function.

    A customer of mine decided to go DIY and replace the CCU on his Maytag washer model # MHWZ600WR00 and now he says it just beeps when he tries to start it.
    I ran a diagnostic cycle on it, however it does not display any codes. When I power the unit on it appears ready to run. When I press start, the unit beeps and then does nothing. I’m wondering if it could be the motor control or the control panel? Got any suggestions?
