    Same thing for me! And the washer's less than two years old. It started doing that almost a year ago. Has unplugging it worked for you?

  • rdhover Dec 30, 2008

    you have to be kidding me. We are having the same problem. Bought it almost 2 years ago and just within the past few weeks we are getting this.

    Same problem for us and we just keep resetting and resetting. Unplugging did nothing. How long can this go on? There must be a solution. HELP.

    I have the same problem. My machine is 20 months old and out of warranty.I called Whirlpool this morning 1-800-253-1301. Got past the automated part by asking repeatedly for an operator and finally got a real person. They did not know anything about a recall ...I suggested this was a widespread problem and i heard there was a recall and I'd like to speak with someone who knows about this...I got transferred to a "specialist" that agreed there was a recall and would schedule service and pay parts and labor. They scheduled the service 3 days out! Good luck.

    The error code F1 comes on when I start the washer and I have to keep pushing the cancel and start button to get it to work, but now my washer is leaking water it is less than 3 years old.

  • jpcpherd Jan 20, 2009

    Same problem here. It happens at the start and at the rinse. Also, when you run on the "whitest whites" cycle, it occurs during the bleaching cycle. What can be done to fix???

  • heikef Jan 21, 2009

    We have the same problem with the F1 error code. It comes on when starting a cycle and at times in the middle. Pausing and restarting several times works most of the time, but we feel the end is near and that is very frustrating as the washing machine is less than two years old.

Hi Curtis: File a class-action suit against the Whirlpool company. There is something wrong with the electronic module that tells the washer to shut down during the rinse cycle.
If you pause, lift the lid, pour in about 3 gallons of water into the tub, close the lid, push start, the washer should continue without having to wear out your fingers pushing the buttons. The buttons will eventually be pushed down into the control panel and you will have to use a pencil to reach them.
Also helps to have a nice cool bottle of regular beer (not the light stuff) before you start the load, the washing duty will work out much smoother. Good Luck.

    I have a top load whirlpool cabrio washer. Every time I start a load of laundry the F1 sensor comes on. I have to restart the wash 6-10 time before in finnally works. Why?


    Hello

    Error code F1 is caused when the control on your washer is either bad or about to go bad. This is a common issue with Whirlpool Cabrio washers and they are aware of this. I have also seen them replacing the control without any charge, don't really know about the labor charges but they usually won't charge you for the part. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

    When the water runs inside the washer always show the F1 and the machine stop.


    Hi,

    The "F1" error code on the Whirlpool cabrio is quite common, and generally has to do with the control board. Replacing the control panel may resolve this issue. However, I believe Whirlpool is aware of the F1 issue with the Cabrio, and is fixing some machines for free. Please call 1-800-253-1301 for more details and see if you are eligible for a free repair.

    Unballenced on spin even when empty


    It may come up an unbalanced load but it may a sensor that is on recall. I have a Whirlpool Cabrio top loader and after I start it it says F1 which is a sensor on recall and I have to restart it several times before it continues the load. Go to their web site and you can look up the exact model to see if yours has a recall as well.
