Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer

1 Answer

The famous F1 problem

I have had my cabrio for 2 yrs now. Seems like that is when this problem starts. The first call I made I got this girl who tried to tell me it was an electrical problem. Not the washer. My electrical. I wish I would have check online first. My husband changed some plugs and circit breaker. Still had the problem. After I read the numerous complaints and saw their was a recall, I called again. Told this girl what I had read. She was very willing to get a service person out in 3 days. Parts and Labor covered.
Thank goodness for the internet.

    My whirlpool cabrio washing machine keeps giving me an F1 ERROR when it goes to the rinse cycle. It will complete the wash after i hit cancel reset and wash. Any ideas?


    F1(F68)-Pressure Signal Out-of-Range
    I telephoned Whirlpool at 1-800-253-1301. Whirlpool acknowledged the F1 fault and will send a serviceman, free parts and labor, to correct the problem concerning the "famous" F1 fault. This is even for washers out of warranty! This concerns model WTW6600SW2 washers. Be sure to get the authorization code from them so the service person cannot argue about costs.

    I have the exact same F1 code problem


    Primary Control Failure
    F
    then 1 flashes when there is a primary control failure. Replace the machine control assembly.

    This was under recall last year.

    Telephone Whirlpool at 1-800-253-1301. Whirlpool has acknowledged the F1 fault and will send a serviceman, free parts and labor, to correct the problem concerning the "famous" F1 fault. This is even for washers out of warranty! This concerns model WTW6600 series washers.

    Tell them that your Whirlpool Cabrio washer has been receiving the F1 error code repeatedly, with the same symptoms as reported by hundreds of other customers online. You were told that there is a recall for this known defect in the control board, and are requesting that Whirlpool fix the problem including parts & labor.

    Be sure to get the authorization code from them so the service person cannot argue about costs.

    Basically - this is a problem (faulty chip) on the main controller board of the unit... and the entire board must be replaced with the updated version.

    Give the warranty a try (even if it is out of warranty)
