Depending on the year, the F1 code is a control board fault. If the dryer does not start (clicking noise heard but drum does not start) it may be a solder joint on the board has cooked. If you are handy it is a 15-20 minute fix.

SOURCE: AF flashing on our Whirpool Cabrio Dryer.

Hi Terry,

AF flashes if a restricted airflow condition exists. Check to make sure the lint screen is clean, the door seal is in place and the vent is not
obstructed.
I suspect it's the vent connecting the dryer to the wall or the vent pipe in the wall to the outside. Without moving your dryer, look behind it to see if the flex duct is crushed or pinched. If it is, it's pinching off your air flow, too. Pull the dryer out straighten or replace the hose (you can get vent hose at Home Depot, Lowes or Ace Hardware) then slide the dryer back being careful to keep it about 8" from the wall (8" is the recommended distance from the back of the dryer to the wall, btw).
If the flex vent is NOT pinched off, then you should call a chimney sweep to come out and clean the vent pipe that's in the wall.

*Note---> If you want to test this diagnosis to verify it, just disconnect the flex hose from the wall and run a load of clothes. The error code should not reappear.

Comments: - I don't know what satifaction they will give you, but you could contact Whirlpool. I don't know if it's fact, but some folks with this problem said that they were able to get the cost of repair covered in some cases, while others complained that they got no proper assistance from the manufacturer at all, so I really don't know for sure what good it will do, but it's worth a try. I'm sorry for your trouble and hope you find a good resolution to your problem. Best of luck and best wishes.

    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.

    OUR WHIRLPOOL/CABRIO MODEL WTW6600SW2 IS FLASHING F1. WHAT IS PROBLEM?


    Lool on this site for F1 fault. Apparently a very known problem, seems with control pcb. I called Whirpool today on a machine purchased in 4/07 with a 4 year extended warrenty from Lowes, and they didn't even question it. Said a repairman would be out to replace part and parts and labor are covered by Whirpool. Call them at their 1800 #, Mention it's the infamous F1 fault, have model and seriel # at rear of top load door ready for the technical help person, and they'll take care of it.

    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
