Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

So this error you're getting F 2 E5 means that your user interface control board (the board behind all the buttons on your control panel) isn't communicating with the main control board well. You'll need to remove the control panel and check the wiring going to the interface control panel. Make sure all the wires are securely plugged in and if so, the interface control board will need to be replaced to resolve the issue. Below is a link to the interface control board you'd need to order for your model number.
