Code F1 @ Whirlpool Duet Sport Washer

Whirlpool (duet sport) Model: WFW8300SW01 Serial: HLU0226729 Type: 831

Hi!
I live in MN & just received a note from my tenant in DC:
"A few weeks ago, after a power outage, the washer started malfunctioning -- freezing in the rinse/spin cycle. I think the code said F1."
Any ideas?
Thanks, Ann

An F1 is almost always a defective main control board. Could try unplugging the unit for a few minutes and see if it will reset. The part # for the board is W10110072. Sears sells it for $119.46 http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=WFW8300SW01&productCategoryId=0153200&brandId=1198&modelName=RESIDENTIAL-WASHER&diagramPageId=00003&componentDescription=CONTROL%20PANEL%20PARTS&documentId=W0607261&backToLink=Return%20to%20Sub%20Components%20list.

Whirlpool Duet Sport Model WFW8300SW0 basket won't


The following list of codes indicates an electronics communication problem with the washer: - Duet HT washer - F01, F03, F06, F11, F23, F24, F27, F28, F29, F30, F31, F32, F35, F42, F61, F62, F63, F64, F65, F70, F71, and F99

If Pause/Cancel does not work:
  1. Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
  2. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, call for service.

I would first replace the door latch/lock assembly, a number of users have and it fixed the F-11 error code completely. Its the cheapest part for this problem.

Hope helps.

Whirlpool Duet Sport ~ E28 Error Code


serial communication error between central control and motor control.
Check connections at ccu (top front right corner) and mcu (bottom by motor), check belt drive for wear.
Did motor run ? Any other codes in diagnostic? (any one modifier button 4 sec on 4 secs off 5 times.) F codes are failures and C codes are portions of test cycle(automaticly run)

Whirlpool Cabrio Washer Error message code F1


HELLO, Error code F1 indicates a control failure and most likely the machine control board will have to be replaced. Depending on when you purchased the machine, the board may be covered under extended component warranty.
I had the same F1 problem and they had to replace the control board and something relating to the balance. The tech told me this is a common problem.

Need error messages defined SD and F1


the "sd" is a code for a suds lock. if you have the wrong soap, needs to be the HE type, or too much soap it will suds inside and cause this failure, choose the rinse and spin cycle to remove any soap suds.
the f1 code is an internal failure in the computer and may need to be reset by just unplugging the unit for a few minutes and the trying it again.
i hope you can just clear the suds and it will be ok, if not then the main control board will need to be replaced.
if your unit is not too old then call whirlpool and see if they will help you with the cost of replacing the board.
