Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
With the washer plugged in and all indicator lights off, select any key except power, start and stop.
Press hold for 3 seconds, release for 3 seconds, press hold for 3 seconds, release for 3 seconds, press hold for 3 seconds. If you did it right all indicators will light and 88 will appear in the display. If there are any faults, they will then display, look for a F-60 through 68. This will confirm the board is corrupt. If no faults are found the machine will go through a five minute automatic test cycle.
If it continues through the test mode stop/cancel should stop it from going through the test code.
In brief, it's an issue with Control Board and more likely you need to replace it.
Let me know, if need further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

F1 code = Primary Control Failure. Replace the machine/motor control assembly. If you use a screw driver in front of the machine to open the top you will find a repair manual on the inside of the front panel.
The F1 error code indicates that the signal from the water level pressure switch on the machine control board is out of the normal range. This can be caused by the pressure hose between the bottom of the tub and the pressure switch being pinched, twisted or kinked. If this pressure hose is okay, then the machine control board will need to be replaced to correct this problem.
The F1 error code on this washer indicates a Primary Control Board failure. It is likely that the machine control board will need to be replaced to correct this problem.
There is a slight possibility that a problem with the pressure switch hose could be causing this problem. A pinched or twisted air hose can cause this fault code. When you open the console, check the air hose connected to the pressure switch on the machine control board. If it is pinched or crimped, Its recommended to rerouting the hose to resolve this problem. This may fix your problem without replacing the control board. NOTE: You may want to check for this condition before ordering the control board. Most electronic control boards cannot be returned for a refund or credit.
If you find no apparent problems with the air hose on the pressure switch, then replacing the machine control board on this washer should correct your problem. There is a risk involved in replacing this part yourself. As noted above, you could have a problem with the air pressure hose that is not apparent upon your initial inspection. A service technician would normally need to properly and thoroughly diagnose this problem before replacing the control board.
