Whirlpool Oven Error Codes

Updated March 23, 2017

Whirlpool ovens feature an error reporting system that displays a code to inform the user when a problem occurs. Consult the troubleshooting section of your Whirlpool owner's manual to find a detailed explanation and recommended solution for each code.

Error Code F1

Problems with the control board or touch pad will generate an "F1" error code. Depending on the design of your Whirlpool oven, you may have to replace both items at the same time, regardless of which one is causing the error.

Error Code F2

If you see an "F2" error code, the oven cannot sense a connection between the keypad and control board. Ensure the connection is tight and press "Cancel" to reset the error code. If the code returns, replace the keypad.

Error Code F3

An "F3" error code indicates a failing temperature sensor, which must be replaced to reset the error.

Error Code F4

Whirlpool electric ovens that have a meat probe will show the "F4" error code when the probe malfunctions. Replace the probe if the error is not generated by a simple loose connection.

Error Code F5

The "F5" error code relates to problems with the oven door's locking system or the door latch.
