WP Touchpad does not work.

Whirlpool GS475LEMS1 gas range displayed error E1 F2. Replaced entire control (and keypad) with new part and display still shows error E1 F2. What else has failed?

    I replaced ERC assy (touchpad AND board) with new part. Still displays the same error (E1 F2). I interchanged touchpads and boards (between original and replacement parts) and still get same error (E1 F2). I don't think it's in the touchpad or ERC or ERC Assy. Any other failures that could drive these codes? I'm already into this for $300. The technican I called wanted $600. Upon power-up the display shows "PF" then soon displays "E1 F2", then beeps once every few minutes. None of the keys respond.

The error code of F2 and E1 on your gas range is indicating a keypad failure or an Electronic Range Control (ERC) board failure. The ribbon connector on the keypad could be damaged or shorted. One of the buttons could be stuck or shorted on the keypad. There is a good possibility of a failed (ERC) board as well.
I recommend having a service technician come out and diagnose which part failed and repair your range.

    The only other problem would be the touchpad ribbon. One of the wires could be damaged.



    Good Luck

    you don't need a "professional" to solve this problem or even to order any parts. E1 -F2- = the keytail (connector ribbon) that plugs into the control board is not making good contact. first unplug your range and then remove the two screws on the underside of the back-splash controls panel to access the back of the control board. now simply cut a slip of heavy paper such as a business card to the width of the ribbon and slide it into the slot along with the ribbon connector. that will help press the contacts on the other side together snuggly. screw the back-splash back in place, plug in your range, and the problem will vanish. if the error ever returns, try pulling out the connector, cleaning the contacts with a pencil eraser (see -http://www.fixyourboard.com/techzone/ove... - for illustration), reinserting it into the slot and repeat above with the paper. good luck.

What does the code E1F2 mean on our kitchen range display


This Kenmore was built by Whirlpool. The F2-E1 error indicates a problem with the keypad wiring. Try pressing Cancel. Next make sure that the keypad is connected to the wiring harness (if it is separate from the rest of the control). You may need to replace the keypad or the entire control board (ERC or Clock).

I hope this helps.

F2:E1 ERROR CODE


Hello Cjarboe,

I understand that your range is given you F2:E1 code this code states that the keypad cord is unpluged. If you find that it is plug in and the error code comes up again you will need to replace the keypad. Here are the dirrections to check/replace the keypad.

1. Unplug, shutoff power to the unit
2. Remove the knobs from the top of the control panel
3. Remove the endcaps
4. Unscrew the control panel
5. Locate the serial cable comming out of the keypad do the jiggle and make sure wire is tight on the keypad and control board.
6. Reassable in the revearse
7. Check to see if error code displays again if it does you will need to replace the keypad.

This range has been discontunuied by whirlpool and parts are hard to come by. Here is a link that I have found the keypad for $243.42 at the followign link http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=254959&diagram_id=28176301#d28176301

The range displays f5 e1 when i try to run cleaning cycle


The E1- F5 error is a door lock error.

The control (TIMER) has likely failed in this instance - BUT...

Sometimes when you disconnect power to a range and reconnect it the electronic range control gets confused.
You should disconnect power again for 15 seconds and reconnect and see if that helps.

If it doesn't cure the E1- F5 error hold the bake button in until E0- F2 appears in the display.
This is the error for a stuck button on the keypad and is the way to clear the memory of the electronic range control.

Sometimes these work, but if the control has failed it won't make any difference.
