Whirlpool produces a variety of ranges including gas or electricity, free standing, drop-in, slide-in, convection, or ordinary ovens. If you experience problems with the Whirlpool range, the display can send an error code number. This number shows a range problem and matches the set solution that you find in the manual range. The whirlpool range generally uses the same error code, for easy reference, although you might also want to consult your range specific manual for the greatest certainty. Here are the meanings of the Whirlpool oven error codes.
F1 Error Code
If you receive a double digit error code reading F1, your Whirlpool range may experience one of the three problems. There may be an analog to digital failure. If this is the case, just release the range for 30 seconds and reinstall it. If the same display reappears, you might need to replace the control board. F1 reading can also show a safety flip-flop or a short keypad, which requires you to replace the board or keypad.
F2 and F3 Error Codes
If you receive an F2 error code, the temperature sensor of your Whirlpool oven is short. You must replace the oven temperature sensor to operate the range oven capability. The F3 error code may have many meanings, which are also related to the oven temperature sensor. Potentially, the oven temperature sensor has been opened or damaged. You can also receive an F3 reading because the oven is too hot or because the temperature during oven cleaning is too high. In all of these cases, you can solve the problem by replacing the oven temperature sensor.
F5 Error Code
The next one of the Whirlpool oven error codes is F5 error code. Error code F5 indicates that you need to check the oven door or lock switch. The switch is used when cleaning the oven, for safe closure. If you find that the door or hook switch is not working, you might need to replace it.
4 Digits Error Code
The last is 4 digits error code. In some Whirlpool ranges, the error code has four digits, not two. For example, if you receive an error code that reads F1 – E1, your range has failed flip safety and you need to replace the board. Code F2 – E0 means the keypad has shortened and must be replaced. If you see F3 – E0, the oven temperature sensor has opened and needs to be replaced. Error code F3 – E1 means the oven temperature sensor is shortened and must be replaced. Code F3 – E2 indicates that the oven is too hot, and the sensor must be replaced. Code F3 – E3 also requires replacing the oven temperature sensor, but because the cleaning cycle temperature is too hot. If you receive an error code F5 – E0, F5 – E1 or F5 – E2, the door switch and hook need to be checked and possibly need to be replaced.
Those are the meanings of Whirlpool oven error codes that you might want to know.
