washer has had the error codes F03 and E01.

My whirlpool duet washer has had the error codes F03 and E01. The pressure switch has been replaced 3x’s with no results. Still get that error.

I pointed out that it may be an Air Dome Assembly per service bulletin for this model of washer with the model # WFW95HEDWO. He, “The Tech” answer, even after I showed him the bulletin was “no I don’t think that the problem”. How much is that part and how hard is it to replace? Also, should I pursue this possible fix with Whirlpool?

Thank you,

Pat G.

I replaced the “air dome” switch or whatever it’s called in mine and it didn’t change anything. I’m sick of this piece of junk!

さんによる

@Evelyn Sgourakis did you try unplugging it? Mine would do that and I would unplug it for like 15 minutes or so and it would unlock when I plugged it back in. I did everything I could think of and finally just replaced it. Hope you get something figured out and good luck with the COVID!

I have the same issue and still can not seem to find an answer.

I replaced the pressure switch.

I clear the code.

I cleared air trap and drainage.

Same issue and its only 1 year old.

Sadly this model was highly recommended by consumer reports.

Anyone have any other solid idea?

I have this same exact issue with no answers. Hate this machine so much.

The F01 indicates a failed electronic machine control board. This error code can sometimes be caused by a glitch or power surge through the electrical lines. You may be able to clear this code by unplugging the washer for 5 minutes. ... Be sure to unplug the washer before accessing internal components.

E03 The overflow condition occurs if there is too much water or foam in the washer. If overflow occurs, the valves are closed and the drain pump switches on for at least 30 seconds. ... Once the error code is displayed, the cycle is terminated and all water is pumped out.

Unplug the machine for five minutes to allow it to reset the plug it back in and observe any results and report them back.

We have done the above and plugged back in and it still reads those error codes

We are having the same issue and the tech that came out to fix it told us it was the drain pump that needed changing but after reading all the stuff out there I am not so sure anymore. He was looking up the info when he came, so he didn't even know what could be wrong with it. I am trying to troubleshoot this myself because if he changes the pump and it doesn't fix it I am back to square one and I have to pay more :(

さんによる

Mey. ask the guy that probably didn't get a high school degree what his reasoning is for it being the drain pump and if he can substantiate that diagnosis. Let's see if @ladytech can help.

さんによる

Not sure if this will work for everyone, but when clutter accumulates on top of my washer it shows this error code. The weight of the stuff piled on top of my washer is causing the problem. Once I clear it off the washer works fine (after I unplug and reset).

Dear Patty,

The problem is most probably a Air Trap Pipe Blockage, It can also be clogged with soap suds and leaking moisture, causing error code F03 E01. When clogged, the nozzle captures air incorrectly, wherefore it presses on the pressure switch. As a result, it determines the wrong amount of water in the tank, which sends a signal to the main control board.

Hope this helps!

I just had the same error, I opened the back and the top cover, took out drain filter, it was so clean, we just got the house along with it two years ago. Anyway, the door was locked along with the errors, so next thing I went to look is the lock mechanism from the inside. Turn out just probably a slight misalignment of the lock, so I saw a small piece sticking out from the lock, when I pull it, it unlocks the door and I was able to open the door and when I plug it back again, it works!

I have a Whirlpool front load washer with the FO1 and EO3 error. This indicates that water is detected by the pressure sensor water level circuit. I realise some patients is needed in my analysis. I hope it helps you address the issue with some valuable insight.

Make some observations. You may smell the inside of the washer. Does it smell damp with sour soap washer residue ? Consider that there is a buildup of scum throughout the washer.

Disconnect the power and remove the rubber connector from the drain port of the machine at the top left. Attach a shop vacuum hose so that it fits over the drain port to remove the residual water and potential build up. reattach the drain hose.

Add two table spoons of a water based degreaser such as Zep Orange Citrus to the bleach section. Add vinegar to the rinse softener section. Add 3 table spoons of CLR to the detergent section. Add 4 table spoons of baking soda to the tumbler.

The degreaser, vinegar, and CLR will clean the dispenser and enter through the water inlet cycle into the cloths tumbler. The baking soda will make the water more hard to have less suds. Vinegar, and degreaser will remove the tendency of suds as well. The CLR generates suds and is recommend to be low volume near 1/8 cup. The CLR will remove calcification of the tubes.

Turn the cycle dial to the self clean mode, or a hot wash cycle, and turn on the machine. The drain pump will run for a short while and start the clean cycle. There is a chance the sensor will still detect a high level condition. If it does, consider leaving it sit till the next day unplugged to allow and suds that may have accumulated in the sensor tubes to settle.

If the sensor error continues, consider repeating the above. Allow the error code and pumping cycle go run for hours if it likes. Shut the door to tolerate the beeping. Each time the washer is going through a cycle of draining the water. Be patient and get through the self clean cycle once and try again a second time repeating the above.

This should allow you to run about 4 loads. After the loads, consider running the same self cleaning cycle. You might have some alarms but be patient as this process will help you observe that the system works under certain conditions.

The error is more likely do to too much soap. Only add Two table spoons of detergent and softener and add a degreaser. As the washer nears the end of it's cycles and pumps water up to the top of washer drain port it needs to push out the water at a rate where enough water left in the tube and runs back down will not trigger the water pressure/level sensor. In fact, in the rinse cycle, the water is drained in stages as new water is introduced. So the sensor detects various levels through the pressure sensor and can trigger a false condition after any one of the drain cycles.

The main reason is that too many bubbles are being generated and too much air is being introduced as the washer attempts to drain the tube. The bubbles lead to false measurement of level and the pump can not drain the bubble upward.

Take off the top section of the washer and observe the cycles and the clear tube.

If the pump is weak or there is too much air getting to the pump area suds will be generated. Certainly, cleaning the trap at the bottom of the washer will be one of the first things. The tubs checked for cracks, and that your tub smell very clean.

These are things I would do before exchanging parts.

I wish you well.

I repeated the cleaning technique above a few times. The alarm/error code returned when the load was heavy with towels etc. The soap was a little more than usual.

Try to be patient. When the error occurs and you hear the pump working with a slight hum note that there may be foam generated in the tube. Go ahead and vacuum the drain port to remove the foam while the washer pump is operating. Usually, the water level sensor detects the low water level and opens the door.

Open the door. In fact, your cloths may pass through the wash cycle and open the door. How ever, if you leave it sitting for a few minutes without opening the unlocked door the sensor may detect a water level condition and lock the door while attempting to pump water. This creates more suds because there is more air

さんによる

It is possible, the sensitivity of the water level setting has changed or a balance of air and water is creating a false reading.

Put the system through a system clean with liquids that do not have suds and removes the contaminants.

Use lighter loads of cloths

Use only 2 table spoons of detergent and softener.

System clean after every 3 to 4 runs.

see if this helps for the time.

At that point when the system still shows signs of not working consider a removal of the water pump and examine obstructions in the pump. especially near the blades

さんによる

What I have learned when addressing the Error F01 and E03 ( FO1 EO3 ) The F is significant to the sensor circuit, the E is error in the measured condition of the washer tub.

E03 is a high water level detected after drain pump operation.

The first approach for any diagnostic on the washer is to clean with CLR (2 TBS to 1/8 cup), include a water hardener such as baking soda or filtered baking soda and Epson salts to mineralize or harden the water and reduce suds.

Add the water harder to the soap dispenser so that the liquid goes directly into the tub. After your rinse cycle you may add it just before the pump turns on so that the water will drain with reduced suds generated.

Repeat the clean and water additive process.

When operating a wash cycle, Only 1 to 2 TBS of soap and rinse. Add degreaser to the bleach tray.

Run cycle on hot

1/2 of your normal large load.

Vacuum drain port if error code reappears.

Clean every 4 loads

I have run 8 loads after performing the above at this point

さんによる

Update.

Borax added to the tub seems to stabilize the operation between multiple users.

I believe this reduces the suds generated when the pump drains the tub.

Imagine that a pump needs to push the water upward to the top of the machine where it drains out into the laundry drain.

What happens when the water is reduced in the drain tube ?

At first, the tube has a solid column of liquid. What happens with water so low that half of the tubes has air ?

The air is being churned into the soapy water.

So, the pump is churning the soapy water with air that generates bumbles. These bubbles take up space and act as a membrane pushing up in the sensor tube.

Beep ! F1 E3. .... Tub water level sensor alarm activated.

If the machine is shut off for hrs it may operate as normal.

To take care of the alarm.

Reduce the amount of Tide He to 2 table spoons tbs.

Use only 1/4 cup of Borax or Baking Soda to reduce the suds generated.

Perform a complete clean as mentioned in earlier posts.

You have to take off the top cover and reach down and flip the open latch manually.

Thank you! I left the washer unplugged all night. I’ve removed the drain line and used a shop vac on it. I removed the top panel so I could get the door unlocked. I removed the back panel and cleaned out the drain filter. I had a hard time getting to where it would even let me run a load. Somehow, through a combination of unplugging it, leaving the door open when I plugged it back in, turning it on and off, etc., (and lots of luck, most likely), it finally let me push the buttons and run a cleaning cycle. Then it went back to the E01 F03 error. I did the unplug it dance again and finally was able to run a load (four towels). Then it did the error messages again (after the load finished). Now it just has 3 horizontal lines on the display (or the error codes) and won't let me start it. (I've just been running it with vinegar, no detergent, in case that's contributing to the problem.)

I'd appreciate any help and suggestions. Thanks!

Check your drain filter if it’s accessible, if it’s not the technician should be checking that when they check over the machine. I just did one with the same errors and it was simply a clogged drain filter however it’s sometimes inside the machine and only a technician should attempt taking the u it apart.

Thank you all for the help and feedback! I removed the drain line again and used the shop vac again. I didn't think I would need to do that again, but I think that is what finally did it. I've run 2 more loads since then (with only vinegar, no detergent), and so far it's not giving me any more problems. Thank you all!

I found I was putting in some cases twice the amount of detergent recommended by the detergent manufacturer, in my case it was Tide HE detergent. I was adding liquid detergent to the fill line in the washer but for a small to medium load that's twice the amount needed. This is my third washer in twelve years and the one before that only lasted about four years. I never knew. Hope this helps.

I figured it out. I noticed that this error code happened more when I ran laundry than when my wife did. And since I am the only one to add detergent, I decided to try an experiment. Instead of filling the detergent dispenser to the fill line, I filled it only half full. Not one single load has errors since.

Hope that this works for you as well.

I have had this issue multiple times and repaired it with different methods.

  • First time I cleaned the dispenser motor contacts
  • Second time (one year later) replaced the entire dispenser motor
  • Third time (one year later) had to replace the entire main board.

It’s been running fine since and that was 2 years ago now.

Have a whirlpool front loader model:W10891955A.

have been getting the F03 followed by E03 code. I took the back off the washer and accessed the trap for the drain (turned off water and unplugged first). Lots of stuff in there! Cleaned the whole thing out and replaced trap. First load ran fine with no error. Second load produced same codes. I am using Tide HE detergent in the “load and go” dispenser. I am wondering if it’s the detergent? I did just go back to using Tide a few months ago-and can’t remember for sure if that’s about when codes showed up. Anyone have ideas?

My Hisense washing machine was showing the f03 error. I opened the plug for water dispensing and some dirt came out. Of all things a tooth floss was blocking the water dispenser, I kept hearing a cracking sound just before the error sound . I took it out, now it’s working perfectly.

I am happy to say I have run 20 loads of various types without any error codes.

The repeat maintenance I performed was the CLR decalcification clean under the system clean cycle of hot water cycle (such as towels).

When the error E03 occurred I:

Vacuumed the drain port while the pump was draining. Repeated until door lock opened.

Placed CLR in all the dispenser trays (total) 1/8 cup.

Added 1/4 cup of baking soda to the bin

Ran a hot cycle or the system clean cycle

On the next load I added only 1/2 the normal amount of clothes for 4 load cycles.

Used 2 Table Spoons of Tide HE laundry detergent

and 2 Tables Spoons of Softener.

Ran hot water cycles

Repeated the cleaning cycle with CLR after each cycle.

Now the E03 error is gone and the washer runs consistently.

I believe this cleaning method is a first diagnostic approach to help isolate any other issues. It can save on any physical repair or call to a tech.

At this point, there have not been any errors. I add a squirt of Tide HE, a squirt of softener, a 1/4 cup Borax in tub area. A degreaser ZEP in bleach bin.

Reduce load size and that's it, not parts removed no parts ordered no dismantling ...

Try the past cleaning process before replacing parts. I suggest if the thorough cleaning process was not effective, then clean the traps , remove the pump to see if their is something like a pin or thread interning with the flow .

reassemble and clean iften

The CLR is very effective and may create suds etc. When the alarm process is cycling with the drain pump, the computer is measuring what it believes is water level. It will run the pump for a set time and then measure water level. If the sensor detects a false water level then it will repeat. let it repeat if it needs to for a few hours. Then turn off the machine. After cleaning with CLR, the calcium build up and soap buildup are reduce. The key here is to be patient, let the system go through its cycle during the error code and the red light flashing while off to attempt to pump. When unit is turned off but kept plugged it the red light will flash while running the pump . I attach the shop vac during the draining because the valves are open to suck out whatever. The water level sensor may detect a low level and unlock the door. I suggest using Borax instead of Tide due to the fact people tend to use too much Tide. Borax is more compatible

Turn the knob to a different location. Be patient. It will correct itself. It did the same for me. Turn it off try again later. I believe the system just funds itself caught up in an error loop. You will eventually learn how it behaves. A wet blanket will giver errors. We give up and dry the wet blanket rather than spin it. Once the blanket is removed you may wash other clothes. It really takes time and cleaning with a strong cleaner on the system clean mode. Again small amounts.
