Whirlpool Refrigerator Error Codes

Whirlpool Refrigerator Error Code: E0 or F0

When it comes to your refrigerator, sometimes it speaks to you in error codes. One of the more common codes you might encounter is E0 or F0. But what exactly does this code mean, and how can you address it? Let’s dive into the details:

Error Code: E0 or F0

Description: Power Loss or Open Door

Issue: When your Whirlpool refrigerator displays the E0 or F0 error code, it typically means two things:

  1. Power Loss: This code may appear if your refrigerator recently experienced a power outage or loss of power. It’s a notification that the appliance lost electricity and subsequently regained it. In most cases, this code will clear on its own once power is restored.
  2. Open Door: The error code might also indicate that the refrigerator’s control panel senses an open door. This is a safety feature to alert you that the refrigerator door is not securely closed. An open door can compromise the appliance’s ability to maintain proper temperatures, potentially leading to food spoilage.


  1. Power Loss: If the code appears after a power outage, wait for a few moments to see if it disappears once the power is stable. No action is usually required in this case.
  2. Open Door: If the code persists and you suspect it’s due to an open door, check the refrigerator and freezer doors to ensure they are securely closed. Make sure there are no obstructions preventing the doors from sealing properly. Once the doors are closed, the error code should clear.

In summary, the E0 or F0 error code is a simple indicator of either a recent power loss or an open refrigerator door. By verifying the door is closed and ensuring power stability, you can resolve this issue and restore your refrigerator to its normal operation. Your Whirlpool refrigerator has your back, keeping your food fresh and letting you know when something needs your attention.
