SOLUTIONS
Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD).
F4-E1
CAUSES
Meat Probe Defect
SOLUTIONS
This error indicates a problem with either the probe, receptacle, or probe circuit. Check the probe for pinched wires and make sure there is no condensation or contamination on receptacle. If ok, replace probe.
All Error F5-E 
CAUSES
Door Switch Defect
SOLUTIONS
This occurs when the door switches do not match. If door is latched, disconnect power from unit and check wires and connections. If damage is found, replace appropriate part. If connections are not damaged, reconnect power and hold down any key until the F5 error clears. Once the F2 code appears, select 'cancel' and observe for one minute for errors.

Whirpool Duet Front Loading Automatic Washer Fault Codes
FH
CAUSES
Detects No Water Entering Machine or No Pressure Switch Trip
SOLUTIONS
Select 'cancel' twice to clear this code. If there is NO water in the unit, make sure the valves are turned on all the way. Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses, as well as plugged screens in the inlet valves. Verify that the inlet valve is operational. If there is water in the unit, verify the drain pump is working and the pressure switch hose is in good condition and properly connected. Make sure there is not a siphon problem and check all hoses for possible leaks. Unplug the unit and disconnect the power to check all wire harness connections to the inlet valve, pressure switch, drain pump, flow meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU). Reconnect the unit and power to verify the pressure switch is operational, as well as the flow meter (blow air through the flow meter and measure resistance). Check CCU is also operational by performing a diagnostic test or any cycle. Replace failed component.
F02
CAUSES
Long Drain (Drain Exceeds 8 Minutes)
SOLUTIONS
Select 'cancel' twice to clear error code. Note: You may see a "SUD" error code appear first during this failure. This should change to the F02 error code after a few minutes. Proceed by checking the drain hoses for proper connection and kinks. Unplug unit and disconnect power. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure it is operational with no debris or blockage. Reconnect power and plug unit in. If problem has not been corrected, replace the pump.
F05
CAUSES
Water Temperature Sensor Error
SOLUTIONS
Unplug and disconnect power to the unit and check all connections to the water temperature sensor, heating element and element relay. Also check all components for defects. Replace failed component.
F06
CAUSES
Drive Motor Tachometer Error (Unable to Detect Motor Speed)
SOLUTIONS
Disconnect power and unplug unit. Check wire harness connections between drive motor and Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU). Reconnect power and plug unit in. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor, and check drive motor for powered rotations. Replace failed component. Note: If this failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will be unlocked after three minutes.
F09
CAUSES
Overflow Condition (Pressure Switch Closed Too Long)
SOLUTIONS
Check to make sure drain hose is not plugged or kinked and unplug the unit and disconnect power. Check wire harness connections to pressure switch, drain pump, and Central Control Unit (CCU). Check for drain pump failure and clean it of any debris. Check the inlet valve and pressure switch for proper shut off and operation. Replace failed component. Note: If this error occurs, the door will remain locked and the drain pump will run constantly even if 'cancel' is selected. Turn off hot and cold water to faucets and unplug the unit before proceeding.
F10
CAUSES
Motor Control Unit (MCU) Heat Kink Thermal Trip (Too Hot)
SOLUTIONS
Check for proper installation and ventilation, and make sure unit is not located near a heat source. Disconnect power and unplug the unit to check wire harness connections to the motor, MCU, and Central Control Unit (CCU). Check the drive system for any worn or failed components and reconnect power and plug unit in. Check MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor and check drive motor for powered rotations. Replace failed component.
F11
CAUSES
Serial Communication Error Between MCU and CCU
SOLUTIONS
Disconnect power and unplug unit. Check wire harness connections to the motor, Motor Control Unit (MCU), and Central Control Unit (CCU). Check the drive system for any worm or failed components and reconnect power and plug unit in. Verify CCU is working by performing diagnostic test or any cycle. Check MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor and check drive motor for powered rotations. Also check the motor and wire harness. Replace defective part.
F13
CAUSES
Dispenser Circuit Error
SOLUTIONS
Disconnect power and unplug unit to check mechanical linkage from dispenser motor to top of dispenser. Check wire harness connections to the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the dispenser motor. Check dispenser motor for powered rotations. Replace failed component.
F14
CAUSES
EEPROM Error
SOLUTIONS
Disconnect power and unplug unit. Verify Central Control Unit (CCU) is operating properly by running a diagnostic test or any cycle. Replace is defective. Note: A power glitch may cause this error. Try unplugging unit for two minutes to see if that fixes error.
F15
CAUSES
Motor Control Unit (MCU) Error
SOLUTIONS
Disconnect power and unplug unit to check wire harness connections to the motor, MCU, and Central Control Unit (CCU). Check the drive belt and reconnect power and plug unit in. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor and check the drive motor for powered rotations. Replace failed component.
FdU
CAUSES
Door Unlock Error
SOLUTIONS
It is possible the door lock mechanism is broken or the door switch/lock unit has failed. Check the door switch/lock for any debris or foreign objects. Disconnect power and unplug unit to check wire harness connections to the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the door switch/lock unit. Note: Unit will attempt to unlock itself during this error six times before displaying this error code. To manually unlock the unit, unplug the power cord from the outlet and remove the toe panel. Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the bottom of the door latch assembly, where there should be a tear-drop shaped tab. Gently pull the tab down approximately 1/4 inch or until a 'click' is heard. The door should now be unlocked.
FdL
CAUSES
Door Lock Error
SOLUTIONS
It is possible the door lock mechanism is broken or removed, or the door switch/lock unit has failed. Disconnect power and unplug unit to check door switch/lock unit. Check the wire harness connections to the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the door switch/lock unit. Note: Unit will attempt to lock itself during this error six times before displaying the error code.
SUD
CAUSES
Suds Lock (Too Much Detergent Detected)
SOLUTIONS
Make sure drain hose is not plugged or kinked and disconnect power and unplug unit. Check wire harness connections to pressure switch, drain pump, and Central Control Unit (CCU). Make sure the drain pump is free from debris or foreign objects and then reconnect power and plug unit in. Check drain pump and pressure switch and verify CCU operation by running a diagnostic test or any cycle. Note: This error may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds. If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/Spin cycle, and then run a Normal cycle without adding detergent.
