I start my washer and it quits and a code comes up that says F1. I have to stop and start a few times before it will start the load. I've had it about a year...what's going on?

This is from a service bulletin. This may be of interest to you. There some problems with these machines in this area.
CORRECTION:

Models:

Serial Numbers: CT01 – CU52
There are four areas of concern that can cause the F1 Error Code. Each area must be sequentially addressed to ensure
that the diagnosis is correct and the proper repair is completed.
A) Air leaks in the air pressure (switch/sensor) hose.
a. Inspect the hose for cracks, pin-holes or loose connection.
b. Replace the hose and harness assembly (W10058730) if it is compromised.
B) Moisture in the air pressure (switch/sensor) hose.
a. Inspect the hose for evidence of water.
b. Replace the hose and harness assembly (W10058730) if water is detected.
C) Lint or flashing in the air dome hose connection port.
a. Inspect the air dome hose connection port for lint or flashing.
b. Use a small round device (small screwdriver) to ensure that there is nothing blocking the air dome outlet on
the tub.
D) The control needs to be replaced.
a. Replace the control only after you have completed steps A – C above, and verified that there are no issues
with the air pressure system.

These are some of the things that are recommended to check when this error occurs. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

    I would also suggest that you contact the manufacturer and see if they will cover some of the parts/repair parts. It's worth a try. Some folks have said that the manufacturer provided them some assistance in this area, while other folks have said that they received no assistance, so I have no idea what the outcome would be, but in my opinion it is well worth the try. Best wishes.

My washer beeps and says "F1", I press STOP and START. "F1" appears again and I press STOP and START and then works. WHat does this mean?


Hi,


The "F1" error code on the Whirlpool cabrio is quite common, and generally has to do with the control board. Replacing the control panel may resolve this issue. However, I believe Whirlpool is aware of the F1 issue with the Cabrio, and is fixing some machines for free. Please call 1-800-253-1301 for more details and see if you are eligible for a free repair.


Thank you !!

F1 code coming up on my Oasis HE washer


YES! Serious problem...more annoying than anything else. Wait until your machine stops at the spin cycle and displays "F1" again. We just had a repair tech out today and received a quote of $384+ to fix/replace the circuit board. Kenmore & Sears are fully aware of this problem and have issued a recall on a model that is one digit off of the model I have yet they will not do anything about this even though it is the same problem. These machines are huge dogs!
