Whirlpool front load washer wfw9150ww01 tech manual

8 posts in this topic

I am looking for the tech manual for a Whirlpool front load washer M# WFW9150WW01.

Customer says he found the tech manual on the unit, put it into diagnostics mode and is getting 3 blinks, pause, then 2 blinks.

He says nothing on the tech sheet explains this code.

The symptoms are that the washer will not go into the cycle.  No wash, no spin.

Any help would be great.

...  3 blinks, pause, then 2 blinks.

... He says nothing on the tech sheet explains this code.

from the WFW9150WW01 Tech Sheet - W10252711:

" FAILURE/ERROR DISPLAY CODES

... For non display models, the WASH LED will flash and the error code number

is represented by the number of times the LED flashes.

The first set of flashes represents the “F”

and the second set of flashes represents the “E”.

There is a pause of 2 seconds between the flashes for “F” and “E”. "

 

That would be F3E2

WATER TEMPERATURE SENSOR ERROR

Thanks for getting back.  Would that sensor be on the water valve?

I found the sensor on the parts breakdown also called the thermistor on the parts breakdown.  I am guessing if it is reading open it is bad.  I will relay this to the customer.

Customer says he found the tech manual on the unit,

 

from the tech sheets

 

F3E2

If the water temperature sensor (NTC) value is out of range (23°F to 217°F) during the water-heating step of the WASH cycle.

Possible Causes/Procedure

- Unplug washer or disconnect power.

- Make sure that connections to water heater & CCU (TH2 & HE2 cavities)

connectors are not broken or with wires detached, and that connector internal pins are visible.

- Check continuity from the water heater sensor (black wires) to CCU

(TH2 cavity) connector.

- If the continuity diagnosis failed, the Main Harness must be replaced.

- Check the resistance of heating element. See page 7.

- Check the resistance of the water sensor. See page 7.

- Plug in washer or reconnect power.

- Verify the washer operation by running the Diagnostic Test cycle. See page 5.

- After the diagnostic test has finished, unplug washer or disconnect power and wait for 15 seconds.
