  1. I have a single wall oven that when on clean cycle would run about an hour and shut off with PF showing. Now my oven will not come on at all but the clock & display works. Any ideas?

      Jonathan,
      What happens with your Whirlpool stove when the display says: “Fault detected press start”… Do you press START, and if so, what happens next?
      What is the model number of your Whirlpool Oven/Stove?

  3. I have an error code of F6 E1 on my whirlpool electric oven that is only 1.5 years old. Any ideas of what this is and how to fix it? Called manufacturer who states it was only covered for 1 year. It came with the house that I had built. I was under the impression they did the registering for me but come to find out they didn’t. No extended warranty was purchased, however, I can per the manufacturer after it’s fixed. Thanks

    My Whirlpool gas range has F3 showing. We just replaced the oven sensor and it’s still showing F3. What gives?

  5. Barbara Almond

    My whirlpool oven has time appearing in blue.
    Then below. In red. cooktop on. Cooktop hot

    None of the heating elements are on and have not been on overnight. Is there a reset switch to flip to turn the constant lighting off?

  6. I just replaced the bottom element on my whirlpool range (YWFE510S0AS0) after it started sparking and crackling. It was harder than YouTube videos showed as one of the connectors had a very short wire and kept disappearing into the insulation. Now that I think I successfully reconnected it gives me an F9 error code. I can’t get into the test mode as I can hit cancel twice but start does nothing. I’ve reset the breaker panel and unplugged for 5 minutes but nothing works. The door lock seems fine. Any suggestions on what may be wrong ? Thank you

  7. The Self-Clean function on my Whirlpool Gold has not worked for several years. I accidentally hit the Clean button and the door locked, the oven does not heat to clean, and I cannot unlock the oven door. Otherwise, up to this point, every other function works fine.

  8. Jeffrey D Wingfield

  13. What does a code E1 F1 mean on a Whirlpool gold glass top oven? After our power went out this showed up and the stove top works but the oven and clock display doesn’t.

    1. ALLEN VETTER - DIY Repair Assistant

      Bohdanna Hansen,
      Whirlpool oven code “d o o r” describes that there is an issue with the door.
      Be sure the door is closed.
      If closed, the door switch may have a fault.
      Remove power to the oven and test the door switch.
      -RR

    My Whirlpool Range keeps showing an error code F1-E2 on the clock display and I have tried breaking the circuit and it has returned…What does this mean ? The oven and stovetop still are working perfectly ! Any other suggestions ? I cannot afford a new part and wonder if this is just something I can ignore !

  23. I was baking and everything was fine. Then the oven beeped and said there was an error– to press start and then cancel. Now I can’t turn on any of the oven settings. I get a message that says feature not available.

  24. The Whirlpool ceramic top range I bought used, Accubake. Stove top works fine oven does not. When I hit the start button for the oven there’s a question mark by it. ( start? )

  25. Tracy Stratton

    After a thunderstorm, our range display shows the word “hot” and will not do anything. The burners work but the oven light comes on but will not stay on, and all other buttons just beep when pushed.

    Is this fixable or did the lightening permanently damage the stove?

  26. David Schowalter

    Range Model# WFE710H0AH0 Oven would not heat over 280 degrees after 30 minutes, Auto Test read – F1 E0, I replaced the control unit #WPW10340304 from Appliance Pro, Oven still not heating past 200 degrees. Auto Test with new Control Unit now says: “1 Failure…. 0 Fault…. Check wiring DBL K1 or BAK K2 or Bake Element.
    What should I do, return new control unit and order the lower oven bake element?

  27. My whirlpool oven has stopped working and on the display it reads f of, I can’t find anything on internet to say what it means?

  28. I have a Whirlpool Gold self cleaning gas oven which is showing E6-F3 error code. I cleared it, but 10 minutes later it came back on

  29. After an overnight power failure, awoke to Whirlpool oven clock 20 minutes FAST.
    Attempted to correct clock and it produced 5A6 error code.
    No controls worked.
    After turning off breaker for 10 minutes, panel displayed 30 for a few seconds then returned to 5A6.
    Appliance is Whirlpool slide-in oven about 5 years old.

  30. I put a meatloaf in the oven when suddenly the door locked, error code e2 f 3 appeared and then it said “self clean” so I hit cancel and “cool” came on. We shut off the power but after an hour the door still wouldn’t open. My meatloaf is still in the oven and I can’t get it out. We don’t dare turn the power back on as it stays locked and starts heating up again! What can I do?

  31. Have a Whirlpool range model# wee740hoso with error code F8EO.
    The fan is turning too slow.
    What do I do to fix this problem?
    I’ve turned it off for 5 mins and code clears but as soon as I try to use the oven it returns.

    1. I keep getting that and E8, the stove shuts down I have not found an answer as to why not how to fix ut. If anyone has answers or input it would be appreciated.

  32. Both of the oven bake elements are missing in my wall double-oven, will this cause an error code of E6 F2 on the display panel?
