I have a Maytag washer model number MHWE251YL00. The front display is giving me an error message: F3E2. Water temperature sensor error. I ohm'd out the temperature sensor. the reading was 11.1 K. This is close to the water temperature that was left inside washing machine. I checked the wires for continuity. Both the front control panel and the main circuit board have been replaced. We still get the same error message. Do you have any suggestions as to what the problem is.
ANSWER Hello Allen,
Make sure that the connections to the water heater and CCU connectors are not broken or with wires detached and that the connectors internal pins are visible. Check the continuity fromt he water heater sensor (black wires) to CCU (TH2 cavity) connector. If the continuity diagnosis failed the main harness must be replaced. Check resistance of heating element and water sensor. The water temp sensor you said had a resistance of 11.1K ohms. This would indicate around 77 to 89 degrees which you are correct should be good. If there is resistance on heating element then it is good. If reading infinity then the heating element is bad and needs replaced.
