Whirlpool Cabrio Washer Error message code F1

Our washer gets an "F1" error message when it's got 17 minutes remaining in the complete cycle. any ideas?

Cliff
My washer was purchased in March, 2007. I just spoke to Whirlpool and they said that the issue was NOT and never was involved in a recall. After telling them that I was looking at the internet and had several links to the BBB, they graciously agreed to a one time service repair at no cost to me. The initial operator knew exactly which code I asked about and immediately said that it was an electrical issue. He stated that there was nothing Whirlpool could do since I am out of my warranty period. He did offer to set up the repair service at cost to me. This was when I asked to speak to someone in the Consumer affairs group. They were courteous but as I said earlier, not willing to fix it until I threatened the BBB. Service call scheduled for Monday Jan 12. We'll see how that works out...

    My machine shuts down at any time during the cycle and gives the "F1" error code. After turning it on and off a few times it will finish the load but it is getting frustrating. What type of electrical problem might this be?

    A Whirlpool tech came out about a couple days ago and I finally have the machine that I paid for working again in my house! The tech came in with a part and was here for about 15 minutes changing the "brains" of the machine. Whirlpool covered the cost of parts and labor. It seems like this worked out pretty well, for now anyways.

    F1 means the control board is shot. Call whirlpool and they should take care of the parts and labor even though your machine is out of warranty.

    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.

    Whirlpool did a recall on this problem here is there number try this first. Whirlpool 1-800-253-1301
    On a number of ranges this can mean a number of things, the most common being a failed ERC(EOC, Clock assembly)or a faulty touchpad. Firstly if you are using a recent Maytag range it may pay to test the oven sensor as described above as this may cause an F1 error if faulty (may apply to some other ranges as well) this is not a common cause but is worth discounting. To check the ERC and touchpad
    1. Disconnect the power
    2. Gain access to the back of the ERC
    3. Disconnect the ribbon cable that connects the ERC to the touchpad
    4. Check nothing will short when power is reconnected
    5. reconnect the power and switch on
    6. Watch for F1 and listen for the beep
    7. If you get the F1 and the beep this means the fault is with the ERC and it will need replacing
    8. If after 30 mins you do not see the F1 error and hear the beep, replace the touchpad

    WRONG POWDER'S, TO MANY POWDERS IN PUMP PUT ONE TEASPOON OF OIL IN WHERE THE POWDERS SHOULD GO AND RUN CYCLE AND THAT WILL DESROY THEY SUDS AND ONLY USE HIGH EFF DETRG. FROM NOW ON, IF THAT DONT FIX PROBL YOU HAVE SOMETHING STUCK IN YOUR PUMP, YOU WILL HAVE TO HAVE TECH TO TAKE YOUR FRONT OFF MACHINE AND GO INTO PUMP WHICH IS EASY AND REMOVE ITEM, PROBL SOCK, OR UNDYS. I HAD THIS PROBL WITH MINE.

    Cabrio washer - F1, F2, F40, F41, F42, F50, F51, F52, F53, F54, F72
    To remove the error display, press Pause/Cancel twice.

    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.
