WEG745H0FS0
Brand
Whirlpool
Age
1-5 years
I thought it was the membrane switch board so I replaced that but it's still having the same issue. All buttons seem to work fine except for the one start button. When I plugged in the new board I got an F2E0 error that seems to mean there's a keypad short? Do I need to replace the entire control board or is there an alternative to that particularly expensive part? The range is only 3 years old so it's a bit surprising it already needs such heavy maintenance. Thanks in advance!

Added complete model number

Hi,

Your missing the last digit of your model number.

Here's the results I get:
WEG745H0FS0
WEG745H0FS1

Read it from the model number tag on the machine.

What is the part number you installed?

F2E0--->Keypad Disconnected--->The main control no longer sees the keypad.

1.Unplug range or disconnect power.
2.Inspect keypad connection to main control (connector P12). If connection loose/unplugged, reconnect.
3.Replace all parts and panels before operating.
4.Plug in range or reconnect power. Allow 60 seconds for main control to identify keypad. If error code reappears, go to Step 5. If the error code does not reappear, go to Step 9.
5.Unplug range or disconnect power. Inspect keypad connector, keypad cable, and main control connector P12 for signs of damage (cracked locking tab, bent pins, etc.). If damage found, go to Step 8.
6.Replace all parts and panels before operating.
7.Plug in range or reconnect power. Allow 60 seconds for main control to identify keypad. If error code reappears, go to Step 8. If the error code does not reappear, go to Step 9.
8.Replace components in the following order of likelihood of failure
a. Keypad cable
b. Keypad
c. Main control
9.Replace all parts and panels before operating.
10.Plug in range or reconnect power
11.Verify operation is normal. Enter the diagnostic mode to view the “Faults” screen. Press START TIME or DELAY START to clear each Fault code(s).

Ah sorry the full model number would be WEG745H0FS0 . I replaced the switch membrane with this: W10728529. All the other buttons work the same way with the original switch board so I assume that wasn't actually the problem.

I followed the above and nothing changed so before I replace the main control board I'll try replacing the ribbon cable first. Thanks, I'll update when I swap that out.

Yes, it says to replace the ribbon cable next:
Harns-Wire


Well, actually it said to replace the cable first before the keypad.:)

True! I did check the cables and all seemed to be ok. The range is only a few years old so all the components look brand new still.
