F01 - There may be an internal problem with the control, attempt a Hard Reset.

Hard Reset - In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:

* Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
* Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
* Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display.
* Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.

The F01 generally indicates a failed electronic machine control board.
This error code can sometimes be caused by a glitch or power surge through the electrical lines.
You may be able to clear this code by unplugging the washer for 5 minutes.
If the code returns after plugging the washer back in, then the electronic machine control board will need to be replaced.

The procedure for accessing and replacing this control board is shown in this image...

Be sure to unplug the washer before accessing internal components.
When you access the control board, I recommend transferring the wires from the old control board to the new replacement control board one connection at a time.
Once you have all of the wires transferred, remove the old control board and mount the new control board in the washer.
Reassemble and test the washer.

The "F01" error code indicates a communication error between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the EEPROM onboard the CCU.
The "F01" can also be displayed if the onboard "Pump Driver" fails to activate.
Generally in order to correct this failure will require replacing the CCU.
There is no way to test and verify if the control board has failed.
The technical data sheet basically states to replace the CCU.

I don't know what the issue is. It just keeps flashing an F and won't work


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F1 error in your Whirlpool Cabrio 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 to be a common issue. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My kenmore keeps getting f1 code had it fixed and it cost almost 400 dollars and it is doing it again washer was just over a year old when this happened,gave 1200 for washer should last 10 years with out...


This problem has been found to be inherent with this model including its Whirlpool (Cabrio) and Maytag (Bravos) counterparts. It is due to the design of the water level control system, the pressure transducer, which has been integrated with the machine/motor control assembly. It has been found that issues with the pressure transducer including the pressure hose results in the flashing of the fault code F1. Air leaks and moisture in the pressure hose and lint or flashing in the air dome can result in signal error being sent to the machine/motor control assembly and hence the fault code F1 which is according to the service manual, a machine/motor control fault. You may observe that this fault code appears whenever water runs into the machine.

Whirlpool, the manufacturer of these models, has issued a bulletin regarding this issue and suggested the necessary actions in identifying the real cause of this problem and how to address it. Click on the link below for the troubleshooting and repair details.

What is code F1 mean on the Whilrpool Cabrio. The washer stops about 5 seconds when I first put it on.


Ok the Cabrios have alot of problems. In your owners manual there is a big page where it gives you errors codes and what to do it also givees you a diagnostic feature which helps determine the problem. This site gives you the fault codes and what to replace. F1 means primary control failure. Also sometimes when the control board is bad something else could also be wrong. Good Luck

Kenmore elite flashes f1 code and stops


If I remember correctly? It is stopping after the wash cycle and won't spin? If this is correct you need a new pump. I found out that front load washers have a filter that is behind that front cover and it needs to be cleaned every 6 months or more often if you have lots of strange items that show up in the wash like coins or toys or if you have lots of furry pets. Mine did that with out the code and I replaced the pump and check the drain every 6 months or so. I was told a good indicator that the drain filter is getting clogged is when your washer has an odor. Just a rule of thumb.

My kenmore oasis elite flashes f1 and wont run it's cycle? Can't find my manual.


The F1 error code indicates either that the pressure signal is out of range or the pressure hose is blocked. This would mean that the control board is defective or the pressure hose is pinched or blocked somewhere between the control board & the outer tub. You can check the pressure hose by removing the rear panel & looking where the drain hose is coming out of the back of the cabinet.

Kenmore Elite Oasis HE/ Error Code F1


Sorry to tell you but you have a faulty control board. It is a bad part from the factory. They know that its bad too! They have completely remanufactured the part. There is lawsuit against whirlpool (whirlpool made the oasis) for the problem. Some people have been able to call and complain to whirlpool and got them to pay for the repair. Complain a lot. Good luck. sorry for the bad news.

Ok these are not the series 70, getting a model number off the door will reallllllly help. Some of these sound like the oasis. F1 is motor control or primary control failure and F 41 is a rps thermistor failure.
For the guest with the 11027086601 kenmore elite oasis here is a link for supplying me with a partial model number, much thank yous!! paste in a browser:)
