Maytag Bravos Steam dryer that reads service error code F1

I have a Maytag Bravos Steam dryer that will occasionally read a service fault code F1. It has happened twice. When the door is opened to check clothes dryness and then closed the code shows up. Turning off and on the dryer removed the code.I was hoping to find out what this code means. The dryer seems to work fine. It is less than a year old.

F01 - There may be an internal problem with the control, attempt a Hard Reset.

Hard Reset - In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:

* Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
* Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
* Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display.
* Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.

The F01 generally indicates a failed electronic machine control board.
This error code can sometimes be caused by a glitch or power surge through the electrical lines.
You may be able to clear this code by unplugging the washer for 5 minutes.
If the code returns after plugging the washer back in, then the electronic machine control board will need to be replaced.

The procedure for accessing and replacing this control board is shown in this image...

Be sure to unplug the washer before accessing internal components.
When you access the control board, I recommend transferring the wires from the old control board to the new replacement control board one connection at a time.
Once you have all of the wires transferred, remove the old control board and mount the new control board in the washer.
Reassemble and test the washer.

The "F01" error code indicates a communication error between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the EEPROM onboard the CCU.
The "F01" can also be displayed if the onboard "Pump Driver" fails to activate.
Generally in order to correct this failure will require replacing the CCU.
There is no way to test and verify if the control board has failed.
The technical data sheet basically states to replace the CCU.

    Maytag Dryer MED6600TQ0 F1 code


    please follow this steps , use the multimer and fix it. Merry Christmas
    The F1 code is a thermister error code. You need to use a meter and check the thermister, it is located on the blower housing. Just remove the lower panel to get at it. Unplug it and it should read around 10K ohms at room temp. If it is very low or does not read at all it needs to be replaced. If it is good you need to check the wiring from the thermister to the board to see if it is good. If it is and still displays the F1 code you need to replace the control board. That board is located on the left hand side of the unit when you have the top off you can see it on the left hand wall. Here is a link to the parts for your unit.

    I am getting an f 1 reading on my washer


    Call Whirlpool at 800-688-9900.

    I think there is a recall on that machine.



    Let them know you have a Bravos or Oasis washer and you are getting a F1 error code.

    I think they will send someone out to replace the controller board for free on that unit. If not, here is the part you need.

    Washing machine out of balance


    Unbalanced load. I read somewhere the cure from the manufacturers is to remove the counterweight at the base of the machine and add springs to stabilize lateral movement. You could see the actual service matters bulletin if you paid the $500 subscription fee. LOL

    Service manual anyone?

    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.

    My kenmore keeps getting f1 code had it fixed and it cost almost 400 dollars and it is doing it again washer was just over a year old when this happened,gave 1200 for washer should last 10 years with out...


    This problem has been found to be inherent with this model including its Whirlpool (Cabrio) and Maytag (Bravos) counterparts. It is due to the design of the water level control system, the pressure transducer, which has been integrated with the machine/motor control assembly. It has been found that issues with the pressure transducer including the pressure hose results in the flashing of the fault code F1. Air leaks and moisture in the pressure hose and lint or flashing in the air dome can result in signal error being sent to the machine/motor control assembly and hence the fault code F1 which is according to the service manual, a machine/motor control fault. You may observe that this fault code appears whenever water runs into the machine.

    Whirlpool, the manufacturer of these models, has issued a bulletin regarding this issue and suggested the necessary actions in identifying the real cause of this problem and how to address it. Click on the link below for the troubleshooting and repair details.

    My bravo steam dryer is showing an F1 code, and I can't get it to start


    this is a control board issue, you may be able to clear the fault using these steps:

    1) Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.

    2) Plug the dryer back in or turn the breaker back on.

    3) Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display.

    4) Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.


    If it will not clear then you will need to replace the control board, Good Luck Tim

    The f1 code on the Maytag Bravos top loading washer keeps going off and stopping the machine


    Please contact Maytag to inquire about the code F1. They should check the system and that that code is a courtesy repair and should be scheduled for a someone to come out to fix it. FREE
    It is possible that the F1 code was caused by your laundry habits (detergent), but I think that is unlikely. Too many of these machines have problems with the F1 error code. There is a known problem with the Oasis / Cabrio / Bravos machines.
