How do you know this is a generic problem for all whirpool washers?
What I can tell you is: ever since electronic controls were placed with appliances (dishwhrs, dryrs, wshrs, frigs,etc) there was this new age of error and fault codes that would lock-up the electronics. I always recommend people buy the mechanical control appliances because you do not have these interim problems. Mechanics justs keep ungoing, and if it will fail some day, you usually have a warning period, and it is more likely to be cheaper to repair than electronic controls.
Aside from all that, your owners manual should have a section in the rear that says trouble shooting; this usually has some of the standard error/fault codes and it can tell you what it stands for. Most errors can be eliminated by unplugging this electric cord and waiting 1 minute for the ciruit board to reset itself. The usual causes are: out of balance load that shook the machine too much, an overfill of water level, and overload of too much heavy close that caused the machine to strain the engine, or a short temporary power interuption while the machine was operating. Try the plug rest method and pay better attention to the load/overload. Hope all will be good. Macgivor

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I suspect that stands for 'Filter Error' so I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Whirlpool's 'FE' stands for 'Filter Error'.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)

    In display shown FE


    "FE" error code - over flow error
    -Check water conection
    -Check Water valve for proper operation

    When the "FE" error code is displayed the drain pump will be turned on to pump the water out of the washing machine. LG Washing Machine Error Codes

    This error code comes up when there is a over flow condition. The error is coming up because a part inside the washer has failed. I suspect the water valve on the back may be the culprit, it's fairly common.

    Hope helps.
