Also,,, new board will not calibrate. All leds blink once and it goes off.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
also no static charges, ground strap was in use. Could this be a software issue as the self diagnostics say, if so, then how do you identify a correct board?

Hello from JA
My name is Woody.
I will be glad to assist you today.
I have been servicing ALL Major Brands of Appliances for 35 Years,
and have over 100,000 in home repairs and over 80,000 internet repairs under my belt.

As you know the F1 error code was a main control board fault.

The F2-E3 is a mismatch of main control board and the user interface.

What is the part number of the control board that you just installed ?

Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

Do you still need assistance on your question?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the new board # *****: W10405819
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

Thank You!

That is the correct main control for this unit.

After the control board was installed was the Calibration mode preformed on the unit ?

If not that needs to be done.


Calibration must be performed when any of the following components have been replaced: Main Control, Basket, Drive Assembly, Suspension, Motor, and Capacitor. Not performing calibration will result in poor wash performance.

To access Calibration Mode, perform steps 1 and 2 of Activating the Service Diagnostic Modes. Turn the cycle selector knob until the status LEDs or display correspond as follows:

 “Rinse” LED On, “04” Displayed on 7-segment 04 Sensing Soak Wash Rinse Spin Done

Press the START button to begin washer calibration. All status LEDs will turn on.

 Do NOT interrupt calibration, disturb washer, or remove power; otherwise, calibration must be repeated.

 Lid must be down to perform test.

 Basket must be empty to perform test (no water or clothes).

 Calibration cycle runs for approximately 2-4 minutes. Cycle completes when door unlocks and washer enters standby mode.

Let me know if it was or how it woirks after it was Calibrated now.
