What does it mean when my Whirlpool Hybrid Electric Heat Pump Water Heater displays “HPO” on the user interface?
CAUTION: Before attempting any corrective actions, ensure the power to the water heater is turned off at the circuit breaker/fuse box to ensure your safety.
INDICATES: Heat pump is out of operation envelope.
What To Do: The “HPO” diagnostic code indicates that the ambient and/or water temperature condition is outside the operational range of the heat pump. This could be due to extremely cold or hot conditions.
- Ensure the water heater is installed in a location where the ambient temperature is within the recommended range for heat pump operation.
- If the error persists or if you’re unsure about the cause, it’s recommended to contact a qualified technician to service the unit.
