I replaced the broil element and it still did not work, so I checked for a failure/error display code and F3 E2 came up which means Bake range over temperature limits. The bake element works, but I am unsure if it is getting the right temperature.This is a whirlpool range model#RF325PXG

Some Washer ranges are equipped with electronic displays that indicate the time of day and the oven's temperature when it's in use. The display also alerts users to error codes including PF, or power failure, and various letter and number combinations that correspond to issues ranging from electronic control malfunctions to problems with the oven door latch.

Washer F2 faults relate to temperature problems in the oven. In the case of the error E2-F3, F2 is the general fault code and E2 is the specific error code. An E0-F2 error indicates that the oven's temperature sensor is open; E1-F2, that the temperature sensor is shorted; E2-F3, that the oven temperature has exceeded the maximum rated 575 degrees Fahrenheit in "Cook" mode; and E2-F3, that the oven temperature has exceeded the maximum rated 950 degrees Fahrenheit in "Clean" mode.
Clear Error Code
If your oven display shows a letter/number combination, washer advises clearing the display. Press "UPPER OFF" or "LOWER OFF" on double oven models. On single oven models, press "OFF/CANCEL" to clear the display. If the code reappears, the manufacturer recommends contacting a professional service technician or contacting the Washer producer
The Tech Sheet included with Whirlpool ovens is meant for use by professional technicians servicing the unit. To address an E2 F3 error, a technician can check the oven's temperature sensor connection, measure the sensor's resistance and, if necessary, replace the sensor.
Here a list of Whirpool oven fault codes. The codes had been collected from different service manuals. This was a memo that I wrote for my own use. I think this can be useful to owners and technicians.

If OK, replace touch panel F6 - Electronic control logic error (timing) Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC) F7 - Electronic control logic error (lock motor) Replace ERC. F8 - Electronic control logic error Replace ERC.
The F3-E2 error code says that the oven is getting too hot and the oven sensor would need to be replaced because the control board has detected that the sensor is not telling the control the correct tempature.HOWEVER a defective sensor will in way way make the broil element stay on and thusly i believe what is wrong is that a relay on the control board is stuck and the control board should be replaced.
I belive the reason your getting the F3-E2 code is because of the broil staying on and indeed the sensor is telling the control its too hot since the heat wont cut off.
E2 F3 means Oven temperature is too high (Cook mode).
The first part to be tested is the temp sensor. The sensor is located inside oven cavity and it is tested using a multimeter set on Ohms to read impedance at sensor contacts.At room temperature, sensor resistance should be 1K to 1.1K. If not,
replace the sensor. If the sensor checks okay, check for a short to in element wiring (element stays always on). If element and sensor are OK replace the control.

Turn off the breaker and wait for 5 minutes. the follow this 3 steps: --> After turn the breaker back on, go to the range and press "OFF", "OFF", "START", then click on the "clock set", there is a message on the display saying that do you want to delete the error, at this time press on the "START" again. And wait for a while until the everything on the screen disappear except the clock time. Hope this will fix yours. It fixed mine.
F3 is an open or shorted oven temperature sensor, you will have to replace this and it should be attached near one of the elements but you will have to pull it out through the back.
E2 is, sorry to say, a possible ERC or Electric Range Control, otherwise known as the brain behind it. But on the plus side, sometimes it gives this code intermittently when it can't process the information from a failed sensor, so you might get lucky.
