Whirlpool BFG1F3030S3N0V Hot water heater. I need the burner assembly please.

You can't mix and match gas appliance parts, it is too dangerous. Also all repairs have to be done by a gas certified technician. It looks like there are no parts available, time for a new one, or contact Whirlpool direct for advice. https://www.google.com/search?q=BFG1F3030S3N0V+parts ..

Why does my top load whirpool washer restart on its own after it finishes the last rinse and spin cycle. It does this on all settings, delicate, normal or heavy.

  1. Turn the washer off.
  2. Set the mode selector dial to NORMAL.
  3. Turn the dial counter clockwise ONE click (LEFT), clockwise THREE clicks (RIGHT), counter clockwise ONE click (LEFT) then clockwise ONE click (RIGHT).
  4. Now press the start button.
  5. All the cycle indicating lights should be illuminated.
  6. Press the Start Stop button once.
  7. Rotate the dial until Rinse, Wash, and Stop light illuminate.
  8. Turn the washer off and unplug it for 10 seconds.
  9. Finally, turn on the washer and it should now be reset.
  10. Run a test load empty to be sure the reset worked. If not perform the reset procedure one more time.

I discovered Whirlpool hot water heater was displaying E02 error code. Followed directions in manual to possibly correct problem, but E02 code continued to be displayed. What is the remedy for this?

Error E02 indicates that the water temperature exceeded high limit. Switch off the house circuit breakers dedicated to the water heater and then press the reset button located behind the control panel on the water heater. Switch house circuit breakers back on. If error persists, call a service engineer. good luck

My whirlpool smart water heater has been getting cooler for the last year. I now have the temp setting as high as it will go and soon will have no hot water. Is this a bad thermostat?

If it is like the one below the most likely reason is that the top element has failed and the bottom element is buried in limescale. If it is older than 10 years, it needs draining and servicing with new sacrificial anode. If it is older than 15 years it needs replacing. I replaced mine at 21 years as it just started to leak. The top element had failed 10 years earlier and there was 12" of scale on the bottom.

Model # E3Z50RD055CV size 50 gallon whirlpool self cleaner water heater serial # 0051123062 Has lifetime warranty. Need 800 number so it can be replaced

They have a 6 or 9 year warranty according to this. http://www.whirlpoolwaterheaters.com/media/93187/psss1013-standardelectric.pdf companies that say 'Lifetime Warranty', are usually a company like Reliance, who will warranty for lifetime, but what they do it replace when it leaks and then put the price up to cover over the period of the guarantee. $600 price, 6 year warranty, your bill goes up $100 a year on top of what your were paying before.

Model ee3j50rd045v whirlpool electric water heater

The only Whirlpool electric heater I know with control board is Energy Smart electric:
Open following link to identify product and download sample manual:

First of all, the water heater is always full of water.
When you turn on hot water tap, hot leaves top of tank, and new cold water immediately enters bottom of tank through the dip tube. The tank never has air pockets as these would damage tank as explosive steam would fill that pocket ... remember they used to run locomotives with steam power.
So the tank is always full of water, and you know that since no air comes out of the hot water faucet.

You did not say if this is new heater, or if heater was working correctly and stopped functioning.

What you describe does not sound normal.
I suggest calling Whirlpool at 1-877-817-6750.
You need to have serial number and model number from label on side of tank so product can be fully identified by Whirlpool.

If control board is bad, they will know and will sell you new board.
Installation is easy, and wires are color coded.
Replacement comes with instructions.

My whirlpool gas water heater model N50T61-403 has gone out. I have tried restarting it 3 times per the manufacturers instructions. Any idea what the problem is.

My first suspect is the thermocouple has failed (they should be changed periodically, every 5-7 years as they do fail). Without the signal from the thermocouple, the gas valve can not open and start the ignition process.

Whirlpool water heater flash code 6 and burner doesn't come on but pilot is on.

6 flashes is typically found with power vented and flue damper type heaters ... whirlpool never sold a power vent, but they did sell the AO Smith brand flue damper series heater. The following manual suggest the problem is either gas supply or pilot assembly. http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Power-damper-troubleshoot-parts-manual.pdf More resources on following link: http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#honeywell

How do you get a 5 yr. old Whirlpool hot water heater lit?

it is a WATER HEATER. you do not need to heat HOT water. Gas or electric? Electric = turn power on Gas = instructions are on gas valve or in your manual. does not light = verify a spark at burner when you push button (can be hard to see, turn off lights), verify gas valves are on and another appliance has gas, call for service.

Replacing sensor on whirlpool water heater

Water heaters only have a top and bottom thermostats which seldom go bad. Heating elements wear out most often. If you are running out of hot water too quickly kill the power drain the tank and remove bottom heating element using a special large socket. Visual inspection should tell you if it is melted. If it is ok check the top heating element. If the heater was on and the tank not full the top element will go first. Elements never operate at the same time

How can I unlock the digital thermometer control so that I can change the setting. I have a energy smart Whirlpool water heater

CONTROL PANEL LOCK - Holding this button for more than 3 seconds switches the lock mode on or off. When the User Module is locked, a symbol and "Lock" text will be visible on the display. No model posted, so used the following energy smart http://www.whirlpoolwaterheaters.com/media/123507/318686.pdf
