Error code F1 means that the control of washer has either gone bad or about to go bad. This is a common issue with Whirlpool Cabrio washers. I have also seen them replacing the control without any charge, don't really know about the labor charges but they usually won't charge for the part. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
Most probably an inlet valve fault. Could be the water level sensor hose has diconnected, or the drain hose is too low, and is allowing water to flow through into the drain.....Check drain hose......If water flow is not stopped when you unplug the machine, it's probably a valve.....Not a big job........Good luck......Nomess
Completely drain the unit by putting it in the final spin. Leave the clothes out... Put it to max load cold cycle. See if it fills to a high level as it should. If it does not, does the water run in quickly or trickle. Some machines just run water for a set time and if the valve is not letting water in as it should you will not get enough to wash right. Others have a pressure switch/pod in the area next to the timer control. You can see it if you take the control console apart from the unit. It will be round and have electrical wires, ususally two and a clear quarter inch hose coming off of it. The hose goes down and attaches to the tank. As water comes in it puts pressure on this pod causing it to turn off the water. There is an adjustment screw/bolt on it that should have locktight painted on it. You may be able to turn it in or out and get it to work again but chances are when they act up the should be replaced. Very rare to see these go out. Sometimes these are part of the load size adjustment control. Hose may be loose or cracked....let me know if you need more help.
