F1_Code on a whirlpool washer


washers have had several common repair issues since day one. If your Cabrio or Oasis washing machine has the dread error code F1, you can fix it. The F1 error code on you're washing machine means the mother board is bad. The repair is simple and straight forward if you are the adventurous type. The washers control panel needs to be removed to gain access to the mother board. The three screws on the back side hold the washers control panel to the cabinet. The screws are 1/4 size and a nut driver works best to remove them.
The washers main control board is held down with one small screw in the front. Removing the screw and lifting the board up is all that needs to be done to remove the control. The wire connections are all plug and play. The washers pressure switch hose also plugs into the main board. The pressure hose also simply lifts up and off the control board. Need more help? Post your question below i would be happy to assist.

Have a Frigidaire FEF353bfwc. Getting error message F1 and start button lights up and beeps constantly. What to do? Can it be fixed? and what would you guess is approximate cost?


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
The dreaded F1 error code can be difficult to diagnose but here is the best thing to do
this is from the manufacture of the oven.
F1 Analog to Digital Failure Disconnect for 30 seconds - if display reappears - replace control board F1 Safety flip flop Replace board F1 Shorted keypad Replace keypad Here is a simple test that you can do to determine whether the clock or the touchpad are defective when the display reads F1:

- Disconnect power to the range.
- Gain access to the back of the ERC (electronic range control, or "clock").
- Unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC. This will be a flat wire about 1 ½" to 2" wide.
- Make sure everything is clear and will not short out when power is turned back on. Replace any covers removed to gain access to the ERC.
- Turn the power back on to the range.
- Watch for the F-1 and listen for the beep.
- If you get the F-1 and beep, replace the ERC.
- If after approximately 60 Minutes you do not get the F-1 fault, replace the touch pad.

NOTE: Some models incorporate the touch pad and the clock control as one part so F1 = bad clock control.

Warning: If you do not feel comfortable doing this test or making this repair please contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

My clock flashes F 1 every few minutes. What does this mean?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

The dreaded F1 code is saying the the Electronic Range Control (ERC) is bad.

This simple test will help determine whether the ERC (Electronic Range Control or Clock) or the touch pad is defective when F1 error code is present.

Note: Some models incorporate the touch pad in to the ERC as a single assembly, in which case this test is not necessary. Simply replace the ERC (Clock).

Warning: If you feel in any way uncomfortable performing this test or making this repair, please contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

1. Disconnect power to the range (unplug the range power cord or turn the power off to the range at the circuit breaker). It is very important that the power to the range has been disconnected, so please double check before continuing.
2. Gain access inside the control panel.
3. Disconnect the touch pad (also called keypad or membrane) ribbon from the ERC.
This will be a flat wire ribbon approx. 1 1/2" to 2" wide.
4. Make sure there are no lose wires, or anything else that may cause a short when power is turned back on. Assemble the control panel back the way it was.
5. Turn the power back on.
6. Wait for at least 30 minutes to see if the F1 code comes back (This is usually accompanied by a beeping sound).
7. If the F1 code comes back, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad.

Again if you have the all in one where there is no ribbon from the clock to the ERC and you get the F1 code simply replace the range control ERC.

On the all in one assemblies there have been occasions where there was a problem with the OVEN TEMP SENSOR wires that caused the F1 error! Make sure you inspect the temp sensor wiring.
This is exactly what the service manual tell us to do (edited) with the exception of the temp sensor wiring causing the F1 error.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Happily I don't have the dreaded F1 problem associated with many Kenmore Oasis HE machines. Maybe my problem is simple. Sometimes the buttons work fine but quite often you have to push them many times....


You need the board with the buttons, The board you need is called the user interface panel (board ) With a little patience you can easily swap this out your self, and the good news is that the part is cheaper than the machine control board for the F1 issue

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error code F1 indicates primary control failure and to resolve this you’ll have to replace the machine control assembly. Yes you are right, this error should be fixed by whirlpool as its a common issue with whirlpool Cabrio washers, you can call 1-800-253-1301 whirlpool will send a tech. to fix it and pay for the part. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Hello there:
The dreaded f-1 error code is not a friendly error code what it means is that the
F1 EOC (Electronic Oven Control) failure Replace Basically wht this is telling you is that the electronic controle board is bad and needs to be replaced ok
So i would get in touch with you nearest appliance dealer or repair center and if you have a warranty i would use it.
but if not get a quote on how much it will cost to have it replaced or see if you can do the job yourself and save that money ok?
Hope htis is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

My Dacor RSD30S range has the dreaded F1 problem. Formerly an intermittent event, it is now persistent and power has been turned off to stop the beeping. (The stove worked fine between F1 events.) Based on...


Here is some wisdom for understanding F1 fault codes.

In some models, there are subcodes that make diagnosis even easier.

Here's a simple explanation of what's going on and how to troubleshoot:

The F1 code indicates that:


a. The electronic range control (ERC) is sensing heat in the oven when in a time-of-day (i.e., not cooking) mode.

b. The ERC is receiving information to run multiple heat functions simultaneously.


Although different components (depending upon the model) could generate the code, simple and straightforward testing using your ohm meter is all you gotta do to test for it.

1. Check the oven temperature sensor. The oven sensor has to be within spec or it will cause the F1 code.
As an example of being out-of-spec, the ERC will generate an F1 fault code when the sensor shows 1650 ohms during a time-of-day mode.
This is equivalent to 350°F in the oven.
The resistance isn't high enough to generate an F2 code (runaway temp) or an F3 or F4 code (shorted/open sensor circuit).
The ERC monitors the sensor circuit after a heat cycle and expects the resistance to drop back to 1050-1100 ohms.
The fault code is generated when this doesn't happen. Checking the sensor circuit means also checking the harness,
harness connections and the sensor itself.

2. If the oven sensor circuit checks okay, then turn your inquisitive eyeballs to the touchpad.
If the range has a separate touchpad/keyboard, the keypad may have moisture that is shorting several circuits simultaneously.
If the F1 code is given immediately (instead of during or after a heat cycle),
remove the ribbon connector from the touchpad to the ERC after clearing the F1 code. If the F1 code does not return in five minutes,
then cast a suspicious gaze upon the touchpad/keyboard. Shorts may be caused by using an ammonia-based glass cleaner.
The touchpad surface will absorb ammonia-based cleaners that are sprayed directly on the glass surface. When heat is applied,
the surface material can break down causing shorts.
If you're gonna use ammonia-based cleaners on your control panel, then you should spray it on the rag and then wipe the touchpanel
-don't spray directly onto the surface of the touchpad.

3. On Amana ranges with a rotary temperature dial, be sure that the knob is in the OFF position when performing tests.

4. If these tests all check good, then replace the ERC.

Kenmore Elite OASIS 27082 do not power up


The motherboard (controller) has died.
You will have to replace the motherboard.
This motherboard is the cause of the dreaded F1 error codes as well.
Look at some of the other posts here for F1 errors.
