Question about Whirlpool Ovens
We have a Whirlpool AKZ456/WH. I am not sure whether it is hard wired or just a 13am plug installation (like some ovens I have seen?) Normally I would remove the oven myself and have a look, but as its at a rented property I am a bit loathed to ask the tenant & I cannot find any reference material on the Oven itself
It is possible that inquiry to Whirlpool could yield installation instructions you could refer to to guide removal.

f03 error is a sensor error.you could have taken an ohm reading on the thermistor to see if it was bad.if you replaces the t-mistor then the only other component responsible is the board.make sure all the connections on the board are clean and tight before you replace it.

Your new oven utilizes 220 volts, but it also has some 110 volt features that need a neutral to work properly. Your old oven was wired without the neutral, probably when the house was built. There are 2 answers to your question. #1, no you should have an isolated neutral or common (same thing) wire, so it should have one. #2, if you connect the white on the new oven to the ground wire it will work. The neutral wires are all connected to the grounds at the breaker panel. Look at it if you don't believe me. The ground is there as a safety to you. if you connect the neutral (the white wire on the new oven to ground) you will be eliminating the safety feature on that appliance. So, I do not recommend you connect the white wire on your new oven to the ground wire out of the wall. But if you do it will work, you will just not have any back up protection if there ever is a problem with the electrical on that appliance. I hope this wasn't too confusing, the answer is you will need to wire the oven properly by adding another wire if you want to be completely safe and within electrical codes.

Providing it is just a single fan oven on it's own. then it will work fine from a normal 13 amp socket.
If it is a double oven, then it will have to be hard wired into a cooker control switch box, protected with a 30amp circuit trip or fuse.
Please rate my solution to your query.

**Before installing the oven have a qualified electrician verify that your home is provided with adequate electrical service and that the addition of the oven will not overload the branch circuit on which it is to be installed. A separate three-wire or four-wire single phase, 240 Volt, 60 Hz., or a 208 Volt, 60 Hz. branch circuit is required.**
I'm not sure how clear this will come out when I post it, so if it is not acceptable let me know. I can send you the complete installation guide "pdf" via email if you post an email address.
I'll watch for your reply, good luck. Thank you for choosing FixYa today for your inquiry.
