Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer

2 Answers

We are getting the F1 error code also. Is it the circuit board??

This started popping up just shortly after our warranty expired. For the price we paid for this set we shouldn't have to pay for a faulty circuit board or repairing it!

I have the same overpriced piece of junk and have the f-1 code also . It means you have a primary control failure . Also known as the computer brain module . It cost anywhere from 165.00 -400.00 depending on where you buy it . It will only gets better ,sometimes I get an f-51 code which is a motor rotor sensor failure but could be a false code because somehow this thing will **** clothing under the drum and cause drain problems as well as floods . I got the service manual offline for the repairs , but you may also complain to whirlpool because they are aware of the problem and they may send a repairmen even if its out of warranty . Best bet don`t buy anymore whirlpool junk

I have a whirlpool washer Model # WTW6200SWO (3 years old). The F1 fault code comes on and does not operate. I called 1 800 253-1301 and spoke to a very nice lady. She looked this problem up and said it is a quality issue and is sending someone out to fix at no charge.

I own a whirlpool washer model WTW6300SW Cabrio and I am getting an error code F1 and need to know what to do?

The F1 error means that the control board isn't communicating with the rest of the washer. Try unplugging the washer (or flipping off the circuit breaker) for at least 15 minutes to reset the unit.

If the error persists, you probably need the control board replaced. Appliance Parts Pro has the control board here: . When you pull the control board, check the wiring to the other parts of the washer.

Of course, if your washer is under warranty, contact Whirlpool. I hope this helps.

Whirlpool error code f1

F1 error usually signals a problem with the control board. However, there are a few other things you can try before spending money on a new control board

To remove the error, press Pause/Cancel twice. Unplug the machine for 2 minutes and then plug it in. Select a cycle and press Start. In some cases, this will reset the F1 error.

If your machine is under warranty, you should of course contact Whirlpool and they should repair it free of charge. Even if it's out of warranty, note there seem to be a lot of people who experienced F1 errors on Whirlpool washers and there has been a recall of some models. You can contact Whirlpool and see if your model is one of them.

If this doesn't work out, here is what you can do. The reason for the error can be blockage inside the pressure switch hose. You should check the hose for blockage and there are instructions online on how to do it. If the hose is fine, you should then most probably replace the control board. It's an easy repair. Here are the instructions on how to check the hose and how to replace the control board: Whirlpool F1 Error

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions

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.

Only runs 2 mins then shows F and i clear it try to restart it it will start to fill then shows sd

There is a recall for the Cabrio for having the "F1" error(I had mine fixed by whirpool for free). Sounds like you are getting the F1 error code. If you have not had the washer repaired under the warranty program then you should give Whirlpool a call and get it repaired under warranty. When you call them say that you are getting the "F1" error code and have read on the internet that there is a recall. Have your model number,serial number and date of purchase available. They will send someone out to inspect the washer and repair if they have the control board in stock(they had to order mine and it took 2 days for it to arrive).

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.

F1 error code on Kenmore Oasis He

I think there might be a recall on your washer call to see. I am not for sure that there is a recall but I a m pretty sure there is. So don't quote me on that. the f1 error code usually means that you have a bad board. f1 means that your pressure switch line is failing and this is all in your board. check your owners manual if whirlpool is not going to pay for this repair sometimes there are extended warranties in your manual

Whirlpool Cabrio Washer Error message code F1

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.
