This is from a service bulletin. This may be of interest to you. There have been some problems with these machines in this area.
CORRECTION:
HE Top Load Washers
Models:
F1 Error Code
WTW6200S WTW6300S WTW6400S WTW6600S WTW6700T
MTW6300T MTW6400T MTW6500T MTW6600T MTW6700T
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.

I would attempt to contact the manufacturer and see if any repair/parts costs will be covered. Some folks have said that they had some costs covered, while others have stated that they got no assistance from them, so I don't know what the outcome will be, but it is worth a try in my opinion. The number to call is 1-800-771-3029. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

WTW6600SW1 whirlpool cabrio washer keeps giving an F1 error, why??


Hello,

The F1 error means that water pressure into the washer is out of range...the control on the washer learns the water pressure coming in from when it was brand new it is capable of learning just the water pressure to your house since it will vary from your neighbors...after it has learned what the normal pressure is if it doesnt see that normal pressure coming into the washer it will throw up the F1 error code

What to check is if water is coming into the washer from the rubber fill hoses with as much pressure as always did...things that could cause lesser pressure is; kinked/crushed fill hose,sediment built up in the filter screens inside of the water inlet valve( can be checked by turning off water and removing hoses and pop screen out from the back of washer where the hoses connect to)


If the filter screens are clear and water seems to coming from the hoses with good pressure...the washer control board would need to be replaced

The f1 code on the Maytag Bravos top loading washer keeps going off and stopping the machine


Please contact Maytag to inquire about the code F1. They should check the system and that that code is a courtesy repair and should be scheduled for a someone to come out to fix it. FREE
It is possible that the F1 code was caused by your laundry habits (detergent), but I think that is unlikely. Too many of these machines have problems with the F1 error code. There is a known problem with the Oasis / Cabrio / Bravos machines.
