Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Is anyone from Canada wiht the F1 problem on their Cabrio washer?? I called the 800 number and they are insisting that it's different becuase these cases are not from Canada - My instinct is that this is a load of ****! If anyone is calling a Canadian # would you mind listing it. Thanks :)

When I start the washer the dial flashes and says F1


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 !!

My washer cabrio whirlpool do not rinse after wash theres a code F1


Hi, just to let you know - I called 1-800-253-1301 and explained that this is regarding the infamous Cabrio - F1 problem that hundreds of people have complained about all over the internet and apparently is a common problem. The lady (KIM) acknowledged that Whirlpool is having this issue and she immediately scheduled a Service Tech appointment for tomorrow. She confirmed that the service call and any part will be picked up by Whirlpool.

Take care

States F1 everytime going to wash


Call Whirlpool Customer Service at 800-253-1301
tell them you have a F1 code appearing repeatedly,and that you are aware of a "rework" issue regarding the control board, and that you want a service call to be set-up, This is a VERY common problem with this machine, along with the F-51 code which is a bad RPS. The control board will need to be replaced.

My washer was supposed to go in to spin cycle and alarmed with I believe F1. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem


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). I also located the phone number you will need to call for service...1-800-253-1301

There is a recall for the Cabrio F1 error code issue. I had mine fixed for free. They will have to replace the control board. You will need to call 1-800-253-1301 and tell them that your Cabrio washer is having the F1 error code and you read on the internet that Whirlpool has been making repairs. Have your model number, serial number, and purchase date ready for the person on the phone. The guy that repaired mine also replaced the washboard at the bottom for free...just ask the tech about it when he is there.

I keep getting f1 code on my cabrio washer


by recommendation from this site, I called Whirlpool and was ready to do battle since my Cabrio washer was well out of warranty. As soon as I described the F1 code a very pleasant agent immediately admitted it was a quality issue and offered immediately to set up a time for a repair free of charge. 2 days later my washer was fixed. Great experience.

My Whirlpool Washer Cabrio model# WTW6200SW has a F1 error (fault) code? Does anyone know what this is and how to clear/reset the code?


Called 1-800-253-1301 was told by the Whirlpool agent that there was a quality issue associated with the F1 fault code. They would take care of parts and labor free of charge! My machine is 28 months old. Talked to a woman named Valerie.
