I am getting a F1 code in my washer which causes it to stop several times during a wash cycle, what do I need to do?


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

If you own a Whirlpool Cabrio and are experiencing an F1 error, you're unable to finish or start a load of clothes. When the Whirlpool Cabrio displays an F1 error, this means the the control board is having difficulty communicating with the motor.

To fix your F1 error, you can first try to unplug your washing machine for 15 minutes and then plug it back in. If this doesn't work, you will need to replace the control board. The only tools that you need to replace the control board is a Phillips screw driver and a 1/4" hex head driver. Be sure to unplug the machine from the electrical outlet before performing any repairs.
After unplugging your Whirlpool Cabrio washer, carefully pull the washer away from the wall (Watch your drain hose and the two inlet hoses.) Next unscrew the 3 screws located on the back of the Whirlpool Cabrio. Next, take a picture or make note of where each plug connects to the control board. Next, unplug each plug and the pressure tube. Lastly, unscrew the 1/4 screw then remove control board. Replace with new control board and reverse your steps to install. The new board will fix the Whirlpool Cabrio F1 error.

What does "F1" mean when you are attempting to wash clothes in the Whirlpool Cabrio TOP Load Washer


A fault code of "F" then "1" flashes when there is a primary control failure. You will need to replace the machine/motor control assembly. Page 14 and 16, in the manual, will help you with this.

I get an F1 signal when I start the washer. I can get it to go away by switching what kind of load it is but it keeps coming back?


F1 means communication error, Unplug washer for 2 mins.. What might have caused this problem is a power glitch of some kind.

MY CABRIO SAYS SD ON THE DISPLAY


That means that the machine is sensing excessive suds. I just got the same message on my Duet today. The problem with mine, however, is that there is an issue with drainage. We emptied the drain filter and are currently trying to get it to work properly. It switched from Sd to F-21 and has repeated F-21 5 times until just now when it continued on in the drain/spin cycle to actually spin the clothes. Will keep you posted...

F1 error on Whirlpool cabrio


it means that the control board is not sensing the water pressure (this tells the machine how much water to put in the washer) in my experience you have to replace the control board which will cost over 200 plus labor which will be over a 100
