This thread is a bit old but thought this would be helpful to some.
I thought I could make a go of a WF30 (work force 30) thinking since it was a current offering, they would be available into the future.
Result - is it way to hard to get the sensors to work properly. Do not waste your time. Plus the housing and frame are almost entirely plastic so there was a lot of "fab" work to make a support for the printer head assembly. I wish I would have found this info before I tried. Onto a 1900 or 2200 now.

The PE sensor or paper sensor. It is a trigger type sensor that is tripped when paper pushes it.

I have concluded that the problem is with the timing of this sensor. It is tripped twice... Once to verify paper and secondly when printing commences. If the timing is off you will get a paper feed error.

You can remedy paper feed errors created by the PW sensor by turning edge to edge printing off...

Never give up, I have been through a lot of problem also before and right now I am in the middle of modifying Epson Pro 3800, see here http://www.t-shirtforums.com/diy-dtg/t170993.html. Ask some help to the forum and post some videos of your printer error if necessary, I guess there are a lot of people here willing to help you to finish your DIY DTG Printer:)
