    Whirlpool washer, model WFW9151YW00 Error code F3E2!! We got the same error code and watched a video on You Tube that showed how the wires in the wire harness that are plugged in to the system can break. That is what our problem was and an easy fix!!

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.

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.

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.

Whirlpool washer model wfw9150ww01fault code f3e2


F3 E2 mean that your temperature sensor is shorted. You'll need to replace the temperature sensor which is mounted to the very back left corner of the washer tub. That means you'll need to pull the washer out and remove the back panel to see it. Here is the part to order. Here is a diagram of the unit. The sensor is number 23 on the diagram.

You need to replace the ntc sensor, most likely.

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!
