F01 code on a whirlpool dryer

F-1 code is a open thermistor on most modern dryers. These new fangled machines use electronics to monitor the heat. Instead of the old tried and true klixon with a bi-metal, they now use a fancy gizmo that changes in resistance with temp change. This resistance is monitored by the computer board. They call this part a Thermistor. The thermistor should read 12k ohms @ room temp or thereabouts.
Thermistor replacement is easy enough. Repair Clinic offers a video which shows exactly how to do it. THERMISTOR REPLACEMENT

How test a thermistor

Hi jorge

To test your thermistor you will need:
Soldering iron
Multimeter or ohmmeter
Follow the directions below to test your thermistor
1...Set the multimeter to resistance mode lowest setting.
2...Hook up the terminals of the multimeter to leads on the thermistor.
It does not matter which lead goes to the terminals, polarity is not important in this test.
3...Heat the soldering iron then heat the thermistor by moving your heated soldering iron tip to it.
Note: Check the multimeter reading as you are applying this heat.
A properly functioning positive temperature coefficient thermistor will show a smooth and steady increase in the multimeter
resistance reading.
A properly functioning negative temperature coefficient thermistor will show a smooth and steady decrease in the multimeter
resistance reading.
4...Look for other signs that the thermistor is faulty.
A steady reading that does not change, a reading of zero or a reading of infinity are all indications that the thermistor needs to
be replaced.
If the change in the readings is not smooth or if there is not any change, then this could also indicate a faulty thermistor.
Please take time to rate me.

F 03 showing on machine

Yes F-03 indicates a faulty thermistor (it's inside the heating element at the back). Before calling an engineer, just open the bottom rear panel and check that the connector has not come loose (OR IN MY CASE FALLEN OFF COMPLETELY). This can happen if there is a spin cycle that runs out of balance big time. (two thin wires on a square unit about 5mm in size fitted to the middle of the heating element).

make sure all the connections are in good shape. Look for a broken or slightly burnt connector.
A pinched wire may be the problem.
And the over heat thermistor may have blown.
Its a fuser sensing code. You may have to replace the fuser itself.
