Hi, Here is what is happening.

  1. Yeah fixed it by replacing hi temp sensor.
  2. Then sensor went out again.
  3. Reason there is another sensor that controls heating element. One is high temp, which controls the heating element from overheating. The other controls normal heating element temp range. What normally happens is the temp range goes out & heating elements overload the high temp sensor causing it to fail. Usually best to replace as pairs. Make sure your using the proper temp sensors as well. If you get temp range hotter than high temp results same problem.
Hope this cleared up your problem & fixed you for good. Please rate. Good Luck! If I can Help further please send comment.

The high limit thermostat should have been replaced also.
If there are no obstructions that will fix your problem.

I bought the Whirlpool Duet to replace my old standard washer & dryer and I find that the wash time is longer than the old washer. Even the quick wash takes about 1 hour. Am I doing something wrong...


I assume from your comment that your old washer was a top loader. Yes, front loading machines typically have longer cycle times than top loaders. There are several contibuting factors... first of all, the wash action of a front load is to oscillate the drum back and forth as well as provide a slow tumbling motion whereas a top loader w/ agitator or impeller has a more aggressive action. The more aggressive action rolls and tumbles your clothes more often and therefore cleans faster. Also, because front loaders spin very fast (up to twice as fast as top loaders) to reduce the amount of moisture left in the clothes, they need to have balanced loads. They accomplish this by testing and rebalancing your load several times during each cycle before beginning to spin.

That was a long answer to your question- no, you are not doing anything wrong.

Good luck.

Replaced bad high temp sensor and two loads later it is bad


It will continue to blow until you correct the blockage in the vent system.
It may be internal to the dryer or external to the connecting vent or outside vent.
Find it and fix it.

Washer vibrates during spin cycle


Front loaders have to be situated on solid flooring such as a basement or they will vibrate.

Washer won't final spin


After charging me $275 to change the water pump, the repairman said I needed a new computer board for another $160. I went & bought a new washer - this time a regular top loader mechanical washer with no computer. The repairman said computerized washers & front loaders in particular have lots of problems. He said top loader Whirlpools have the least problems.

Greetings tammym545,

Generally an EFO error on a front load machine is caused by using too much soap, or the wrong type of soap. Ensure you are using HE (High Efficiency) soap in your front loader. HE soaps are specially formulated front loading units to be low sudsing, which is essential to a front loader.

Thank you,

Agent Dort

Front loading washing machines


not really front loaders have top loaders beat all the way but stay away from admiral and maytag .a front loader will wash your clothes using the soap that your top load failed to get out if i may suggest buy a frigidaire with a mechanical timer not electronic control more junk on them more to fail the best combo in my mind is a frigidaire front loader and whirlpool dryer front loaders use 2/3 less water 2/3 less soap and will get your clothes twice as clean they have no transmissions and are direct drive the most common promblems with them is having to clean out the pumps where people leave stuff in their pockets also you need to buy soap thats for front loaders its called high effincey or he soap and they will get your clothes make sure you read the installation guide and remove ALL the shipping braces
