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: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/whirlpool-elecronic-control-board-w10189966-ap4360738.html . 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.

SOURCE: keep getting LD error code on whirlpool cabrio washer

Is there water in the bottom of the tub? If yes then open back of washer and remove drain pump (on left side) and pull off of tub and clear whatever is blocking its impeller.
If the water is all gone and drained but pump stays on for several minutes and then gives "LD" fault then open back and check the small clear tube that is attached to the tub. Make sure is not blocked with debris and check tube and tub for anything that could block the small clear tube. If these are ok then remove 3 screws in back of the control panel, pull open control panel and check the clear tub all the way up from the tub to the washer controller board (computer) make sure it is not kinked or disconnected. If not then the problem is most likely the pressure sensor on the (computer). This unit will have to be replaced.
You can test the sensor by doing the following: 1. When the "LD" fault comes on start by pressing the pause button. then pull the clear tube off of the computer board. Then attach a tight fitting drinking straw over the sensor. Press the start button and wait for 60 seconds - If the washer does not start the spin cycle on its own after the 60 seconds then **** on the drinking straw that you attached to the pressure sensor earlier. The sucking action should reset the sensor thus telling the computer that the water is drained and it will start the spin cycle. Just remember if you have to do this to get the washer to spin - that means the sensor is damaged most likely from moisture traveling up the tube over time. The computer board will need to be replaced. I believe it costs $205 without shipping. Hope this helps.

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.

SOURCE: why does F1 code show and the washer stop

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 !!

    Keep getting F1 error code on my cabrio whirpool top load washer. Can you help?


    Hello & Welcome to FixYa

    F1 error in your whirlpool cabrio indicates bad control board and should be replaced to resolve the error code. However, you can contact Whirlpool as well prior to replacing the control yourself as I have seen whirlpool paying for the parts themselves just because this is known to be a common issue. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

    What does code f1 mean


    Hello

    Error code F1 means that the control of washer has either gone bad or about to go bad. This is a common issue with Whirlpool Cabrio washers. I have also seen them replacing the control without any charge, don't really know about the labor charges but they usually won't charge for the part. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

    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.
