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.

I turned on my self cleaner oven this morning and it started beeping and flashing F1. The only way I could stop it was to push the cancel button which of course turned it off


Good Morning Monica, thank you for your post!

Based off what you have described your Frigidaire range is providing you with an error code of F1 after you started a self-cleaning. The error code "F1" stands for a runaway temperature (overheating). This could be an issue with your RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) or the EOC (Electronic Oven Control). I would recommend performing a reset on your oven and you can do that by disconnecting from your oven for ten minutes. If you continue to have issues with the F1 error code I would recommend having a professional technician out to your home for proper diagnosis and replacement of any electrical components. Hopefully this information has been helpful. -Matt

Control displaying F1 E5:

There may be a problem with the Oven Control, or the associated wiring.

Power unit down by turning off the circuit breaker(s) for one (1) minute.

Power unit up by turning on the circuit breaker(s).

Monitor the oven for one (1) minute to ensure the error code does not display again.

Verify oven operation.

A fi error message on a fridgeaire oven


Good Afternoon Leif, thank you for your post!

Typically error code F1 indicates that your range has detected an issue with the runaway temperature (overheating). First, try reprogramming your range by flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position or by unplugging it. It is important to wait approximately ten minutes and then turn your range on. This often clears most false error codes. If the error code does not clear, then more than likely the RTD Probe (Resistance Temperature Detector) or the EOC (Electronic Oven Control) will need replacing. This is not a typical DIY.o connect with a local technician to determine the exact diagnosis. I hope this helps explain the error code you are receiving.

F1 code


Most F1 error codes refer to a communication error in the main control board/ clock on some there are reset overload switches that if tripped show as a push button that is pushed outward that you can reset. This also mainly depends on which type of oven that you do have and you would have to provide the make and the model number of the unit in order for me to give you an exact solution to your f1 error instead of a generalized one. Sometimes also you can turn off the power at your electrical breaker for 7 minutes which this causes the control to reset in some. Most of the time in most models though the F1 refers to having to replace the electronic control module (ECM. If you have any further questions or wish for me to look up the exact error for your unit message me back your make and model number and I will give further diagnosis on your unit. Thank you again

The F1 error code means that the computer thinks a button on the touchpad is stuck. Sometimes this can be resolved by making sure the touchpad connector fits tight into the control board. The F1 code can be cleared by pushing CANCEL/OFF. If it returns the touchpad needs to be replaced .

Jenn-Air SCE 30600, oven error codes F1 and Probe


An F-1 error code on your model means the element was energized when it should not have been, A shorted interconnect harness or failed power relay board.

A probe indication could be a failed meat probe jack or bad harness in a unit that has one. In a unit without a meat probe, suspect a bad board.

Both conditions would warrant bringing in a tech.

Before you do, turn off the circuit breaker fot 3 miutes and turn it back on. This will reboot the boards. If problem persists, the call a service tech.

I have an ei system 103a desktop i have had to sytem restore now when i turn pc on it tells me to press f1 to start windows i have tried going into the bios and boot from hardisk but still have the problem...


The 'Press F1 to continue" message is a result of an error caused as the BIOS does its hardware checks during the boot process.

The BIOS boot process (bootstrap) preceeds the loading of the operating system.

The most amusing example of this occurs if you unplug a ps2 keyboard, 
1, it generates the error
2, pressing F1 does no good because the keyboard is not plugged in.
3, if its ps2, you will need to do a hardware reset after plugging the keyboard in again.

The bios can be set to 'halt on'
'no errors' which will stop the error message appearing.
'keyboard errors' see above
'all errors' any hardware failure detected by the bios will halt the boot process and give the above message.
