you can try unplugging the washer and letting it reset the system. thenplug it inand press the spin/drain button. if it still gives you the flood condition chances are the pump is faulty and needs to be replaced. it may be covered under whirlpools warranty for the law suite against the washer. otherwise you can get the pump off ebay for cheep and install it yourself. its just a little messy so if you do it yourself make sure you have a shop vac around to **** up the excesswater.

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.
First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
Enter your model number (###.########) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.
If it neither drains nor spins, the first thing to check is the Lid Switch. This prevents the machine from draining and spinning if the lid is open.
I assume that it has gone thru the agitate / wash cycle and that you cannot hear the motor trying to turn.
See the following for how to access the console and Lid Switch connection.
Following is a Whirlpool installation and maintenance PDF on top load, direct drive washers. It has a description of how to by-pass the switch.
It also has a troubleshooting guide.
To bypass the switch, you only have to disconnect the power to the washer, remove the two plastic clips from the console, remove the two screws under the clips, tilt the console back, unplug the switch and using an short piece of insulated wire, jump the two outermost contacts on the connector coming from the console and plug the washer back in.
With the jumper in place, try to re-start the washer.
If it works, the Lid Switch is a relatively inexpensive part.

You have a ball sensor that is located in the rear of machine just behind the rear panel. Check to make sure the ball sensor is properly mounted to the metal frame and the frame is not bent inward as this will make contact with the tub when it is try to spin. Good luck.

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 and yes even if its a 4 yrs old they have to fix it. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
