Whirlpool Washer F3E1 Error

Troubleshooting and Repair - F3E1 Error Code - WFW75HEFW

The Whirlpool washer F3E1 error code is a water level system error. The main control is detecting an out of range pressure signal. Check the water level pressure hose from the water level pressure sensor to the air trap. Check the connection from the air trap to the tub. Make sure the pressure hose is not cracked, pinched or stopped up and make sure the air trap is not clogged. If all the above checks out then it's either the ACU (Main Control) or the water level pressure switch causing the error. Most the time it's the pressure switch that has faulted causing this error. Replace it first and if the problem persists replace the main control. Both parts along with instructions to replace them are provided at the links below.

Hello Rita,

First, you need to start by replacing the water level pressure switch which you can order from the link below just click on the image. That is usually the cause of the error. If that does not fix it then the control board is bad.
