Hi there I have a whirlpool wwdc 9440 that’s about 4 years old and keeps displaying error message f:08 after every wash. I understand this can be linked to heating element so tested old element and confirmed open circuit. Ordered new element like for like. Tested new element around 30 ohms- All good, fitted but still same fault occurring. Decided to check temp probe. Measured around 9k ohms and goes up and down when put in hot or cold water so believe this is working. Only thing left I can think of is control unit. But what is strange is I definitely failed the old heating element so unless two things have gone wrong? What do you think? Thank you for your time.

With cover left off back I checked for voltage on heating element there is a constant 240 v supply and goes through element to begin with (240v when testing on elements two connections) then 0 volt, although 240 V supply still  there when testing to earth. Basically seems like heating works to begin with then stops. Confirmed this when putting wash on 60 degrees glass front can be felt getting warm but then after a while glass feels cold.

Hello there. I don't have any recent whirlpool error codes but the ones I have describe F8 error as to do with detecting water levels. Unfortunately manufacturers sometimes used the same error code to mean different things in different models so you can never be hundred percent sure unless your model number is mentioned with the error code. It might be an idea to just check that there isn't a blockage in the pressure system
