What does the F5E4 error code on your Whirlpool washer mean?

The F5E4 error code (sometimes displayed as dr) signifies a “door not opened” error. This can happen in a few situations:

  • You pressed “Start” with the door open.
  • You ran multiple wash cycles without opening the door in between (usually 3 cycles).
  • The washer isn’t properly detecting the door opening and closing.

How to fix the F5E4 error code on your Whirlpool washer:

  1. Check the door: Make sure the door is firmly closed before pressing “Start.”
  2. Open and close the door: If you forgot to open the door after a cycle, simply open and close it now. This should reset the error.
  3. Power reset: If the error persists, try a power reset. Turn off the washer, unplug it for a minute, then plug it back in and restart the cycle.
