F1 error code on cabrio washer

Washer stops and shows F1 error code; manual just says call repair man; after changing settings, and pausing on/off a few times it restarts. we've had the washer for about 2 years before this started. Looking on line it appears this is very common with this product. Is there anything that can be done or just call whirlpool? I have the same problem, but my seriel # is WTW 6300swd and it is the Cabrio top loading washer and the F1 comes up all the time! Does this one fall under the recall also?

    ATTENTION CONSUMERS!!! Do NOT buy the Cabrio washing machine!!!!!! I've had mine for 4 years, paid a little over $1,000 for it. I'm getting the famous F1 error code that everyone else has gotten and Whirlpool is NOT standing behind their product, they told me all parts and labor will have to be paid by me, not Whirpool. It will cost $400 or more to repair it. For that money I could buy a brand new washer. When sooooo many people's washers are doing the same thing then obviously there's some sort of flaw, they need to recall and do the right thing by their customers. DON'T BUY A WHIRLPOOL, once they get your money, they don't care!!!

SOURCE: F1 error code on cabrio washer

The F1 error code on this washer indicates a Primary Control Board failure.



It is likely that the machine control board will need to be replaced to correct this problem.



The part number for the machine control board is undetermineable because you have not provided me with the exact model # of your washer.



The procedure for replacing the machine control board is provided HERE

NOTE: Be sure to unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.



There is a slight possibility that a problem with the pressure switch hose could be causing this problem.

A pinched or twisted air hose can cause this fault code.

When you open the console, check the air hose connected to the pressure switch on the machine control board.

If it is pinched or crimped, I recommend rerouting the hose to resolve this problem.

This may fix your problem without replacing the control board.



NOTE: You may want to check for this condition before ordering the control board. Most electronic control boards cannot be returned for a refund or credit.



If you find no apparent problems with the air hose on the pressure switch, then replacing the machine control board on this washer should correct your problem. There is a risk involved in replacing this part yourself.

As noted above, you could have a problem with the air pressure hose that is not apparent upon your initial inspection. A service technician would normally need to properly and thoroughly diagnose this problem before replacing the control board.

    F#code keeps flashing on washer did what manual says to do but nothing changes can you help


    The "F1" error code on a Whirlpool Cabrio washer means that the machine control assembly has failed and you must replace it. Order a new assembly from a Whirlpool parts dealer. The "F2" troubles code means that a key on the user interface or keypad is stuck. Look at each key and try to unstick it. Always hit the "Pause/Cancel" button to try and erase the error code. Try restarting the load.

    What does F1 code mean


    A Sublime Master at the Samurai School of Appliantology recently did battle with one of these newfangled Oasis washing machines. The F1 error code was intermittent, which made it impossible to troubleshoot. Turns out there’s a service bulletin out on this problem. Come, feast your bewildered eyeballs on the wisdom of the Masters.

    Why does F1 code show and the washer stop on my whirlpool cabrio


    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.


    Thank you !!
