To Access/replace the CCU:

#1

Unplug the Whirlpool Cabrio power cord from the wall outlet. Turn off the water supply to the washing machine. Pull the washer away from the wall so that you can access the screws behind the control console. Remove the hex head screws securing the control console to the washer with a nut driver. The screws are on the lower rear edge of the control console.
#2

Lift the control console up, and rotate the console forward so that the face of the console is resting on the top of the washer. Locate the interface board cable connector to the right of the plastic tube on the back of the console. Pull the end of the connector straight out of the control console. The primary machine control is the box that the plastic tube connects.
#3

Place small pieces of masking tape around the nine wires connecting to the primary machine console. Label the wire locations onto the masking tape with a pencil. Grasp each wire at the connector with your fingers, and pull the wires away from the primary control. Pull the plastic tube out of the primary control.
#4

Locate the nut toward the bottom of the primary control. Remove the nut with a nut driver. Lift the front of the primary control slightly, and slide it down to disengage the retaining clips. Pull the primary control out of the control console. Insert the new primary control into the control console. Slide the primary control up to engage the lower clips. Secure the primary control to the console with the single hex head screw.
#5

Push each of the wire connectors into their respective positions on the primary control until they lock into place. Push the plastic tube hose over the port on the right side of the primary control. Remove the small pieces of masking tape from the wires.
#6

Position the control console back upright on the top of the washer. Secure the control console to the washer with the three hex head retaining screws. Slide the washer back against the wall. Turn on the water supply and plug the washer into the wall outlet.

    F1 flashes on my maytag bravo washer


    This is an inherent problem with this Whirlpool-made top load washer and at first it is believed to be a machine/motor control fault. But it was found later that it can be due issues associated with the pressure transducer/switch system. Air leaks and moisture in the pressure hose including lints or flashing in the air dome can lead to signal error being sent to the machine/motor control assembly and it is interpreted as a machine/motor control fault. You may also observe that the fault code F1 appears usually during water filling at the start of the wash cycle and/or at the start of the rinse cycles.

    Check the pressure hose for air leaks and moisture including the air dome. Replace the machine/motor control assembly if no issue is found with the pressure hose and the air dome. Click on the link below for the troubleshooting and repair instruction details.

    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.

    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 .

    Our Cabrio Washer shows a F1 code during operation? Can yo help us with this problem? John & Kathy


    Hi


    Thanks for using FixYa. Error F1 means primary control failure and to resolve this you’ll have to replace the machine control assembly. To remove and replace the control you’ll have to unplug the washer and then remove
    three screws from the rear of the console assembly. Pull console towards front of washer to hinge open and/or remove console. Then remove the one screw holding the machine/motor control assembly to the console tray and two plastic legs on the rear of the machine/motor control assembly that fit into the console tray. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


    Thanks

    Called 1-800-253-1301 was told by the Whirlpool agent that there was a quality issue associated with the F1 fault code. They would take care of parts and labor free of charge! My machine is 28 months old. Talked to a woman named Valerie.

    Whirlpool Cabrio Washer Error message code F1


    Whirlpool did a recall on this problem here is there number try this first. Whirlpool 1-800-253-1301
    On a number of ranges this can mean a number of things, the most common being a failed ERC(EOC, Clock assembly)or a faulty touchpad. Firstly if you are using a recent Maytag range it may pay to test the oven sensor as described above as this may cause an F1 error if faulty (may apply to some other ranges as well) this is not a common cause but is worth discounting. To check the ERC and touchpad
    1. Disconnect the power
    2. Gain access to the back of the ERC
    3. Disconnect the ribbon cable that connects the ERC to the touchpad
    4. Check nothing will short when power is reconnected
    5. reconnect the power and switch on
    6. Watch for F1 and listen for the beep
    7. If you get the F1 and the beep this means the fault is with the ERC and it will need replacing
    8. If after 30 mins you do not see the F1 error and hear the beep, replace the touchpad
