Question about Washing Machines
I have a whirlpool catalyst 27" washer and it just started flashing a F3 code, can you please tell me what that means/
F3 means lid switch failure. Heres what the service manual for your washer says about the failure.
Flashes if the lid is NOT opened after the cycle was completed. The
electronic control board must detect that PAUSE/CANCEL was
pressed during a cycle or the lid was opened at least once at the end
of any cycle. This is continually tested to ensure proper lid switch
operation. If “F 3” is flashing, check continuity of the lid switch.
• With the lid closed, lid switch contacts should be closed.
• With the lid open, lid switch contacts should be open.
• If the lid switch has failed, replace it.
• If the lid switch is good, replace the electronic control board.
