The F1 code has become a common issue. My Cabrio was repaired thru whirlpool. There is no recall listed on the whirlpool site but there is one. Call 1-800-253-1301 and have your model number,serial number and purchase date ready. Let them know that your washer has been having the F1 code and you have read on the internet that this is a common issue & there is a recall. They may tell you there is no recall but be assertive. They kinda gave me the run-around and then finally stated they would repair it as a courtesy. Make sure they are going to cover the parts and labor. They will probably send someone out to check and see if the F1 code is stored on the washer. Then they will have the computer board sent to you and will return to make repairs once you have recieved the part. When the guy is there ask him about the updated wash plate that is available. The new wash plate is of different design and is supposed to make the clothing "ball up" less during the spin cycle. They also updated my wash plate for no charge.

This is from a service bulletin. This may be of interest to you. There have been many problems with these machines in this area. Anyway, I sympathize and hope this helps. I would contact Whirlpool. There have been some cases where they will cover the repair charge. Best wishes.

What dose a FL code mean on whirlpool cabrio platinum


I will try and help for some reason Whirlpool likes to flip letters around which differ from the service manual FL would be an LF long fill or is it a F1 the model doesn't show in the Whirlpool data base nor parts suppliers I suspect wtw6600sb1 does the machine from initial start fill correctly then wash if so we can eliminate the pressure switch and hose after wash cycle unit should drain then fill with rinse water if the inlet valve does not let water into the machine to satisfy the pressure switch the control times out and flashes a long fill code this unit has a log valve system possible you have a bad inlet valve on the bank of valve or a bad control not outputing voltage to the valve, hope this points you in the right direction

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.

I have an AEG 6955 washing maching about 14 years old. Recently the program has stopped on many occasions with code F1 usually on first fill. Other times it works OK. The manual says this is no water....


Yes changeing the valve will fix it . around £30. On one occaision only I have come across the detergent dispensor top being blocked up enough to slow down the fill. on your machine it allows 5mins if this is exceeded F1 is displayed and prog stopped.

While filling it will flash an F1 code and stop. If I cancel the cycle and press start again it will usually go ahead with that cycle until the nest fill up. What is an F1 code?


This is a pressure sensor issue on the machine control board .The only sure fix is to replace the machine control board which has been updated numerous times.( whirlpool is very aware of the problems) At one time whirlpool was assisting owners who had this concern .

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

Error message on WTW6200sw


Called Whirlpool to report the F1 problem on my over 2 year old, out of warranty, Cabrio washer. I was told that a repairman would be over and that I was responsible for the service call, parts and labor. Then later, I read on this site about this washer having a service recall that corrects the "Machine Control Assy" failure that causes the F1 code. I called back Whirlpool asking why they never said anything about it when I called earlier. This customer service rep said there was a recall which was stopped (he did not know why) but he would extend my warranty (at no charge) for an additional 3 months starting today which will cover all the repair charges.
I asked of the repairman when he came, if he was aware that Whirlpool was covering all parts, labor and service call. He said “yes”, prceeded to check the machine and confirmed that it needed a “Control Assy”. He ordered the part from my home (which was delivered to me) and made an appointment to return the following week to install, which he did.
The machine is now up and running and thanks to contributors to this board, I became aware of Whirlpool taking responsibility for this part failure.
