My whirlpool water heater is giving me the 7

Customer Question

***** *****. My whirlpool water heater is giving me the 7 code. There is no fumes of any kind in the area and I have turned it on and off but to no avail. Any suggestons
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: The FV sensor is locked out and says it needs a qualified person to reset it. I have been around water heaters of various kind but have never seen this one.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Plumbers generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
