"he seemed undecided whether to go or stay" 2. expressing an enquiry or investigation (often used in indirect questions). "I'll see whether she's at home" 3. indicating that a statement applies whichever of the alternatives mentioned is the case. "I'm going whether you like it or not" Either(conjunction) Either ….or 1.

The difference is that they don’t mean the same thing. You can never replace “whether” with “either” in a sentence. It’s as incorrect as replacing “house” with “dog” in a sentence.
