SOURCE: Error Code F8E1 on Whirlpool Duet

f8 is shown when the heater circuit is on with no water in.. it doesnt do it when you unplug the pressure switch because your disabling the heat protect circuit

THE BOARD IS PROBABLY FAULTY

F08 indicates pressure switch stuck on full.



Unplug the appliance from the wall socket.

Take the top off the machine.

Locate the pressure switch, you can identify it by the thin tube attached to it.

Take the tube off, blow down this tube as hard as you can to shift any blockage or restriction in the pressure chamber. Give the pressure switch a couple of good taps with the screwdriver handle.

Refit the tube and try the machine again.

If still doing it, unplug again and follow the tube down.

This end will be attached to the pressure chamber.

Take this chamber off and thoroughly clean it out, clean out the port into the tub too.

Reassemble and try again.



If after this it's still faulty you'll need to start replacing parts.

I'd suggest trying a new pressure switch first.

Failing this, if all of the above fails to resolve the problem you're possibly looking at a faulty main control board.

Duet. What does F8E1 code indicate needs to be done to restore operation?


Check out the Link and the info below.
Question: Front Load Washer - Error Code - F8 E1 or LO FL Answer Product Symptom:
Front Load Washer - Error Code - F8 E1 or LO FL


F8 E1 or LO FL Code in display:
No water detected entering washer after 13 minutes, the pressure switch input has not been detected.
If the washer has an F8 E1 error or LO FL error, the door will be locked, and the control will be unresponsive. The washer will start a drain routine which takes approximately 8 to 10 minutes, during which time the pump will run continuously. The control will not accept any input during this time. Please wait 10 minutes before trying to perform any functions.
Check the water supply:

Turn on the water. Check the household water supply to see if the hot and cold water faucets are turned on. Make sure to open both faucets completely for proper fill.

NOTE: Both Hot and Cold water must be supplied to the washer.

Whirlpool recommends that appliances be direct connected to the water supply for optimum machine performance.
If a "flood saver" device is being considered:
  • Check with the manufacturer of the device to ensure it will not affect the performance of the appliance.

  • Whirlpool has experienced that "flood safety" devices can interfere with the performance of the appliance. Whirlpool typically does not recommend these devices.
Two types of "flood-saver" devices, hoses and valves are illustrated below. anti%20flood%20hose%202.jpeg floodsafe%203.jpeg Whirlpool Duet Washer F8 Code Appliance Repair Forum

F8E1 code on my whirlpool duet. The plumbers were working in the house and shut the water off to the machine, then my girlfriend ran a load without turning the water back on.


ROFLOL and how did that work out for her I've heard of dry cleaning but dry washing . quite possibly all that burnt out is the water inlet valve.

How do I fix a Duet Front Loader displaying a F8 E1 error Code?


Without model Number going on experience they change based on model the error codes F8E1 is a long fill error code if you have flood safe water supply hoses install regular washing machine hoses most common issue pull machine out remove back panel inspect black hose that runs from pressure switch to plastic tub the clip that holds it in place usually comes loose allowing it to rub against the rotor of the motor causing a hole to develop which will give a F8E1 code

It means the washer is failing to completely drain. If you can find no problem with the washer drain hose and the volume coming out is ok, then you may need to replace the CCU (central control unit)

W 10307859A F8E1 INSUFFICIENT WATER SUPPLY


Check your water supply hoses for dirt. Dis-connect from the washer, turn the water supply on to make sure you have water flowing. If you do, then the clog is somewhere in the connection at the washer or inside of it. Mine was in the supply hose itself.
