Hi,
Sorry to bother. I saw that you had repair the Oasis washer yourself by replacing the board. I am thinking about doing that too. Is it difficult?

The F1 error code on this washer indicates a Primary Control Board failure.



It is likely that the machine control board will need to be replaced to correct this problem.



The part number for the machine control board is undetermineable because you have not provided me with the exact model # of your washer.



The procedure for replacing the machine control board is provided HERE

NOTE: Be sure to unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.



There is a slight possibility that a problem with the pressure switch hose could be causing this problem.

A pinched or twisted air hose can cause this fault code.

When you open the console, check the air hose connected to the pressure switch on the machine control board.

If it is pinched or crimped, I recommend rerouting the hose to resolve this problem.

This may fix your problem without replacing the control board.



NOTE: You may want to check for this condition before ordering the control board. Most electronic control boards cannot be returned for a refund or credit.



If you find no apparent problems with the air hose on the pressure switch, then replacing the machine control board on this washer should correct your problem. There is a risk involved in replacing this part yourself.

As noted above, you could have a problem with the air pressure hose that is not apparent upon your initial inspection. A service technician would normally need to properly and thoroughly diagnose this problem before replacing the control board.

What does F1 error code mean on washer


It means you have a control board fault. Call Whirlpool and tell them the fault you are getting and see if it's recalled. There's a good chance. You can install yourself or have and appliance tech do it.

The f1 code pops up


Hello

F1 error with your whirlpool cabrio is a common issue with these types of washers. This error indicates bad control and should be replaced to resolve the error code. However, you can contact Whirlpool as well prior to replacing the control yourself as I have seen whirlpool paying for the parts themselves just because this is known issue for them. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

What does F1 code mean


A Sublime Master at the Samurai School of Appliantology recently did battle with one of these newfangled Oasis washing machines. The F1 error code was intermittent, which made it impossible to troubleshoot. Turns out there’s a service bulletin out on this problem. Come, feast your bewildered eyeballs on the wisdom of the Masters.

I saw the faq but I didn't see the answer. What does it mean when the Oasis keeps indicating F1 when a wash setting is chosen? If there is a charge to answer this question never mind.

That would the user interface board (touch panel)behind the dash. Sorry, but not a cheap fix at all. Maybe search Ebay for the part, sometimes you can find it cheaper. Very expensive part and repair. Good Luck to you. Jim
