Question about Whirlpool Cabrio Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have replaced the control panel on my whirlpool cabrio, after receiving an F1 code. The code went away for a day or so, and now it back. What else could be causing it? I also had an F29. A little steel wool on the moisture sensor prongs and strips seems to have cleared that. My main issue remains the F1. HELP!!!

F29 means moisture sensor wrong.
F1 Control board may be malfunction or the control panel has sticky or jam buttons

First off I hope you have a Sears unit and second you did not pay a penny. Your F 1 error is a Primary control failure. Part W10104830 and one other do F1 and a oL code.
If you own a Sears machine you qualify for a recall under sf26-779B.
There is two parts to this call the board and a washplate
MCU part # W10201186
Washplate # W10077050
Recall will need your name and phone number and the machine model and serial number.

If you meet all of these conditions to the letter call Sears Recall at 1-800-659-7026

I am getting a F1 code in my washer which causes it to stop several times during a wash cycle, what do I need to do?


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

If you own a Whirlpool Cabrio and are experiencing an F1 error, you're unable to finish or start a load of clothes. When the Whirlpool Cabrio displays an F1 error, this means the the control board is having difficulty communicating with the motor.

To fix your F1 error, you can first try to unplug your washing machine for 15 minutes and then plug it back in. If this doesn't work, you will need to replace the control board. The only tools that you need to replace the control board is a Phillips screw driver and a 1/4" hex head driver. Be sure to unplug the machine from the electrical outlet before performing any repairs.
After unplugging your Whirlpool Cabrio washer, carefully pull the washer away from the wall (Watch your drain hose and the two inlet hoses.) Next unscrew the 3 screws located on the back of the Whirlpool Cabrio. Next, take a picture or make note of where each plug connects to the control board. Next, unplug each plug and the pressure tube. Lastly, unscrew the 1/4 screw then remove control board. Replace with new control board and reverse your steps to install. The new board will fix the Whirlpool Cabrio F1 error.

Machine goes into an f1 failure mode, why?


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 !!

I just had the panel rewired fro f51 now i have f1


F1 is a primary control failure. When I get my F1 I hit pause/clear and then start - it usally begins its cylce then bumps back to F1. If I do this about 3-7 time it will clear. Then on rinse we go again. Some days I have a 3-F1 restart and somedays it is a 7-F1 restart. Just depends on the day. No rhyme or reason. I know I have to replace the main circuit board but $160 + labor is not what I want to do, so I fuss over the F1 and move on.

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.
