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.

I have a gold catalyst gsx9885jq0. It has a code reading, F3. It won't do anything.


If I recall correctly, your F3 code has to do with the lid switch. You may need to replace it. Here is a link to the part you need.

Whirlpool gold catalyst washer error code FF


FF on the catalyst models means the following. Let me know if you need more info or would like a link to where you can obtain a service manual for your washer.
If the transducer signals a high or a low water level for more than 16
seconds the washer will shut off and FF will flash.
• Press the RINSE OPTIONS button and select DRAIN/SPIN to drain
washer.
• Check the water level transducer hose and wire connections.
• Also check the pressure dome hose to be sure they are properly
connected.
• Check the water level transducer, see TEST #7.
