It appears your timer has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Maytag Bravos error code f1


F1 is a very bad error unfortunately. Try unplugging the unit 60 seconds to see if it will reset the control board. If not, then you will need a new relay control board which is about $200, because F1 means that the board has detected an internal short inside the control board itself.

Brovos Maytag Showing a Error F1 is this an easy fix?


The code is caused by a water sensor. You can temporarily just dump about a half gallon of water into the tub before adding the clothes, and then have another half gallon for mid cycle. This stops the code from popping up. Try the half gallon thing and you will see.

I would try to run a few loads of towels with just water (no detergent or anything) to try and flush out any excess detergent residue you may have. I don't know if you are able to set your own water level on this machine, but if you are, I would just run an empty load or two.

Hope this helps...

Ultima washing machine reads test in the window


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I read your other entry first ;-0)
You will have to find the date code- on the rear panel perhaps- then here are your options-

Date code 39 March 2005
Press start/cancel until ALL LEDS are lit
Press both start/cancel AND on/off together until 'dOFF' is displayed

Date code 39 March 2005 to date code 42 June 2005
Press the cancel button and the machine should return to normal

Date code 43 July 2005 onwards
Press both star/cancel AND on/off TOGETHER with top left option button until 'dOFF' is displayed.

Good luck!

F1 on a cabrio washer


Hit cancel button  and restart button until it resumes washing.Try pressing this buttons 3 -4 times together and check.If still the same problem then its the computer board of the machine its failed.
F1 means the central electrical control unit, i.e. the onboard computer, has fatally failed. There are three screws at the rear to expose the control panel, then unplug one unit; plug in the new one. Just to be on the safe side, color code all the plugs and receptacles. At wholesale, the part is $175.00. CODE 083009 part W10189966 CNTRL-ELEC.

Keep getting an F1 code after starting washer. I have to keep pressing the cancel/pause button and then press start several times to get the washer going.


You must have trash or sediment in your pressure tube hose. b66bfab.jpgRemove it from the pressure switch and blow the stuff out then re-secure the hose and pump out any water in the tub. Then retry. Use this handy dandy service manual as a GUIDE

My washing machine Hotpoint wf860 keeps showing Test. please help


The appliance appears to be in shop test mode, to de-activate it follow these steps.
there is 3 differnt variations so here are all 3.
Press the Start/Cancel button until all the console LED's illuminate.
Press both Start/Cancel and On/Off buttons together until
d OFF appears.
The default screen returns and you can select a new programme.
Note:- The default screen information displayed on these models is that of the programme currently selected by the selector knob.

Version 2 ( during Date Code 39 March 2005- to Date Code 42 June 2005)

To Activate

1. Same method as version 1.

To Deactivate

1. Simply press the Cancel button and the appliance returns to default.

Version 3 (During Date Code 43 June 2005 - to date )

To Activate

1. Press On/Off and Start/Cancel together with the top left option button until d On appears.

To Deactivate

1. Press On/Off and Start/Cancel toghether with top left option button until d OF appears.

These variations could explain why some of us have to make several attempts to clear tESt.

F1 error code


The F1 error code indicates a primary control failure or pressure signal out of range. Once the pressure hose & air dome have passed testing, the control board will need replaced. Good Luck And Please Rate FixYa!
