Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I was receiving an F3E2 Error code which states something to do with the water temperature sensor. I got a new water temperature sensor and replaced. Now the washer will run fine without any clothes in the tub but when I put clothes in the error code immediately comes back up and will not run. What else should I be looking for as a problem?

WATER TEMPERATURE SENSOR ERROR
If the water temperature sensor (NTC) value is out of range (23°F to 217°F
[-5°C to 103°C]) during the water-heating step of the WASH cycle.
Possible Causes/Procedure
- Unplug washer or disconnect power.
- Make sure that connections to water heater & CCU (TH2 & HE2 cavities)
connectors are not broken or with wires detached, and that connector internal
pins are visible.
- Check continuity from the water heater sensor (black wires) to CCU
(TH2 cavity) connector.
- If the continuity diagnosis failed, the Main Harness must be replaced.
- Check the resistance of heating element.
- Check the resistance of the water sensor.
- Plug in washer or reconnect power.
- Verify the washer operation by running the Diagnostic Test cycle.
- After the diagnostic test has finished, unplug washer or disconnect
power and wait for 15 seconds.
Water Temperature Sensor
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Disconnect the wire harness from the water temperature
sensor and measure the resistance of the sensor. Use the
following table. An abnormal condition is an open circuit =
infinity; Water Temperature Sensor must be replaced.
Temperature Results
32°F (0°C) 35.9k ?
86°F (30°C) 9.7k ?
104°F (40°C) 6.6k ?
122°F (50°C) 4.6k ?
140°F (60°C) 3.2k ?
158°F (71°C) 2.3k ?

I have Duet waSher, model #WFW9151YW00. I have an error code F3E2. Thought it was the temperature sensor, which we just replaced, but still getting the same error code. Now what?


This could be a wiring fault between the water temperature sensor and the control unit. Make sure that the connectors are properly seated at both sides. Sometimes, one section of the wiring can get pinched and one of the wires in that harness could break. Check that all of the wires in the harness have continuity; the wiring may need to be replaced. Clean out the trap before the discharge pump just in case the error is from a different part of the washer's system.

I hope this helps.

When i used my washer after 3-4 mins f3 e2 maytag front load washer , changed ntc but still same


I am sorry to hear that you have error code F3E2. I know how upsetting error codes can be. I see here that for your Maytag washer, error F3E2 means there is a water temperature sensor error. Below is to test the error
WATER TEMPERATURE SENSOR ERROR:
1. If the water temperature sensor valve is out of range (23 degrees to 217 degrees F or -5 to 103 degree C) during the water-heating step of the WASH cycle.
Possible causes/procedures
a. Unplug washer or disconnect power
b. Make sure that connections to water heater and CCU (TH2 & HE2 cavities) connectors are not broken or with wires detached, and that connector internal pins are visible.
c. Check continuity from the water heater sensor (black wires to CCU (TH2 cavity) Connector.
d. If the continuity diagnosis failed, the Main Harness must be replaced.
e. Check the resistance of the heating element.
f. Check the resistance of the water sensor.
g. Plug in the washer or reconnect power.
h. Verify the washer operation by running the Diagnostic test.
i. After the diagnostic test has finished, unplug washer or disconnect power and wait for 15 seconds.
Below is the diagnostic test. I have it in two halves so you can read it best that way.
If you will submit your model number I will be able to help you further.

I have Whirlpool Schott Ceran Accubake range. Got and F3E2 code while oven was in self-cleaning mode. What does this mean?


Hi.

F3 E2 is a temperature runaway error. It means that the control board detected that the oven is too hot. If there is no effective overheating the error occurs because the temperature sensor is shorted.

here the explanation from manual:

F3 E2 : Oven too hot, over heating

Solution:
Test and replace oven temperature sensor.

Before replacement the temperature sensor must be tested. A good sensor will read about 1080 Ohms at room temperature. If the sensor is shorted will only read a couple of Ohms or zero.

If the sensor is good the problem can be the control board, wiring to temperature sensor, or in sporadic cases an heating element that stays always on because of a wiring contact. The last case is quite uncommon.

The most common fault is a defective temperature sensor. The sensor is a probe located inside the oven cavity. The sensor is attached to a two wires connector and held by one or two screws. Disconnect power. Remove the sensor. Undo connector and read Ohms at connector. If there is low impedance replace the probe.

Here a tip explaining how to find parts and diagrams for most aplliances: Where do I find parts and diagrams for my appliance?

Regards.

Whirlpool Gas Range SF357PEKQ0 -- over heats; will not shut off; have to turn off at gas line behind stove. Error Code: F3E2. Is the replacement part I need the thermostat sensor? Is this part easy enough...


Hi lkanderson97,

This error code F3:E2 means that Oven temperature is too high (Cook mode). The only way to resolve this issue is to replace Oven temperature sensor (RTD). This part can be replaced by your husband. You may contact Sears for the replacement part at 1-800-252-1698; M-F 6:30 AM-10:30 PM - Sat 7:00 AM-9:30 PM - Sun 7:30 AM-9:30 PM - All times Central. Just get your model number ready when you call. Once you got the part instruction is also provided on how you'll replace the sensor.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Screen displays error code f3e2


This code means "BAKE/BROIL range over temperature"
Problem is in either temperature sensor or the control board. Check the temp sensor and wiring from it to the control board first (connector #3, contacts 8 and 10, violet wires) . At room temperature the temp sensor resistance should be around 1080 Ohms. Also check temp sensor for short to ground. If no problems found with the sensor - replace control board.
OBTW - for the broil problem - check the fuse inline with the broil element (continuity between Conn #2, wire 1, blue and conn #4, wire 3, red). It should read several ohms. Good luck!
