Can you re-check that error please? That error doesn't pull up. It should be like F1 E2 or F1 E1 or something like that. Also, what part number are you replacing?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I replaced the whole control module part number W10635843
F3 E1
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 2 years ago.
OK that's a bit different but an easy mistake to make. Now why were you replacing this control board to start with?

Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The F3 E1 error means that the pressure switch has issues. The pressure sensor is number 20 in the diagram at the URL below. Remove that small hose attached to it and blow through it (the hose), does air easily pass? If it does, the sensor will need to be replaced.
