Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer

F1 error whirlpool cabrio wtw6600sb2

I had this washer for a little over 2 years and I am now dealing with the F1 ****. I called whirlpool maybe three months ago and they said that there is nothing that they can do the it being out of warranty. I called whirlpool again after reading some of these post. The lady that was helping me first said that there is no recall and no issues have been reported on this unit. That's when I told her that I had been online researching this and found numerous people with this issue. Then she put me on hold and comes back and says that, if I would pay half price for the part they would have a tech to come out and look at the washer, then he would tell me what part I need and I was to call back and let them order it for me. It didn't seem like they were going to budge anymore than that so I said fine but I really don't think I should have to pay anything because it is an issue.

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.

    When we try to wash a load of laundry after a couple minutes we get the code F1 show up and the wash cycle turns off. What is F1 and how can we fix it so the Whirlpool Cabrio washer will work again?


    We have had the same problem for three years. We are only using this washer about 4 months a year. We has two service calls..no help. We had to baby sit the washer just like all the other posts, pressing pause about five or six times or more.

    Well, I read the posts & that Whirlpool had fixed this problem, paying for parts & labor..we called..they sent a repairman. It took him 20 minutes, he asked if this was the code, said he carried at least three of these parts & now..the washer has been running fine. three loads so far.

    So, call them, tell them the problem & it will be fixed at no expense to you..or should be.

    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
