Whirlpool Kitchen Ranges - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


The F3 error code indicates an open circuit at the oven temperature sensor. Usually this means that the temperature sensor has to be replaced. Infrequently, the problem is with the wiring between the sensor and the electronic control board or the control board itself. You should check the continuity of the wiring and across the temperature sensor and for problems in the wiring harness connections before ordering the replacement parts. The manufacturer's recommendations are to replace the temperature sensor first. If the error code recurs, then you replace the control board.

Your range's model number is probably RS385PXBQ0. Most Whirlpool models end with a number. There are several sources for the parts diagram and price list. The temperature sensor is part 23 on the oven body diagram. One diagram is here https://www.searspartsdirect.com/model-number/RS385PXBQ0/1198/0124100.html . Another source is https://www.partselect.com/Models/RS385PXBQ0/Sections/OVEN-BODY/?ModelID=765297&ModelNum=RS385PXBQ0&mfgModelNum=&ManufactureID=3&Selected=P0ICVYKN&Position=4&mfg=Whirlpool&Type=Range&Mark=4 .

If you look for the control board, it's part 19 in the Main Top diagram at the above sites. The control board is no longer sold by Whirlpool. If it's faulty, the recommendation is to send it to a repair shop for a rebuild. Replacing the range is a better solution if the temperature sensor and wiring are not faulty.

I hope this helps.

Wall Ovens , Whirlpool , Appliances. The error code F3 E2 is telling you the electronic control on the range detected a high temperature in the oven. This can be caused by a defective oven temperature sensor or the electronic range control (ERC)
good luck

I believe you need to replace the direct spark ignition module, but refer to the note below.
Direct spark ignition module. NOTE: This part is often misdiagnosed. Use the wiring diagram and check for an open circuit through the gas valve. Also inspect the igniter and burner tube.

This is supposed to happen automatically. You might try removing power to the unit for 5 minutes and see if that fixes it. If that does nothing it will probably need a main control board, but should be tested as there are other possibilities.

The F1E1 error on Whirlpool ranges indicates a problem with the control board or the wiring to the electronic oven control board. You need to replace the control board. See part 15 of the cooktop diagram here: https://www.searspartsdirect.com/model-number/weg745h0fh0/1198/0124250.html .

I hope this helps.

Possibly oven sensor is bad. Most test at around 1080 ohms at room temperature with a multi meter set to ohms setting

F9 or F9 E0
The electrical outlet in the home or the electrical connection to the appliance may be miswired.
If your appliance was installed recently (within approximately 3 months), contact a qualified electrician to verify the electrical supply.
Unexpected power supply line "noise" during a power outage that the control detected as incorrect voltage may cause the code to display.
If any keys were pressed before a 10 second delay during power up could cause the code to display.
Resolution: Reset Power
