I have error code f3 e1 on my whirlpool front load washer

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Model WFW75HEFW I bought it 10/05/2017

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes mostly, I can't get a technician from the manufacturer

Good afternoon. So this error means that something is going on with the pressure switch on the washer. The pressure switch is located under the top panel of the washer against the right side. It has a small rubber hose and several wires going to it. You'll want to disconnect the rubber hose and blow through it to make sure it's clear. Also make sure there are no small holes in the hose going to the bottom of the tub in case the tub rubbed a hole in the hose or something like that. If it all checks good, then replace the pressure switch. Below is a link to the switch with a picture so you can see what you're looking for and order it if needed.

That answer did not solve my problem. I had to call in a technician. Even the lady on the phone told me what to do to get the door unlocked. I feel like I've wasted $28.
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 8 months ago

If what I stated didn't fix your problem, then you didn't follow my instructions. I explained how to unlock the door and I explained all the things that can cause you problem. I can not control whether you need a part or not, but if you need to replace the pressure switch, then you need to replace the pressure switch. Nothing you or I can control.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
