Quick diagnosis for the Whirlpool, Kitchenaid E6-F2 vs E1-F2 fail codes:
Based on our experience with many units exhibiting these errors, here's the prognosis:
F2 E6 is ALWAYS caused by a control board failure in our experience.
- usually along with intermittent blank display and 3 short beeps
- don't waste time and money on the keypad if this is your symptom
F2 E1 is ALMOST ALWAYS caused by a keypad failure, with some exceptions.
There is a lengthy list of part numbers that this applies to, some of which seem to be unavailable as new ... but there is still time for us to rebuild before TG!
