Question about Washing Machines

2 Answers

F1 code that isn't defined under troubleshooting in manual. Washer just stops. I stop it, then start it.. do that a few times, move the washer around, then eventually it starts. It only shows F# in manual, and call service if it doesn't start again. I read a complaint online about a F11 code, it was computer related and it sounded like a nightmare. This washer is only 3 years old.

F1 error codes almost always mean a problem with the main control board. Some control boards have a 5 year parts warranty. Hopefully yours does, otherwise it can be a very expensive repair.

These are all over the place! I searched all over and found a guy on ebay that will solder the unit for you. He's sold about 90 of these services on Ebay and never had anyone leave poor feedback so it's worth a try. It beats paying whirlpool $300 for a new board.
This guy will refund your money if you send the board back to him if his repair doesn't work.
Worth a try, I'm suprised they haven't recalled these.

What foes Error code f1 mean?


Error Code Definition
  • According to Appliance Parts Quick, the error code is defined as a "Primary Control Failure." This means that the small computer installed in the washer has failed to send, receive or communicate with any other part of the washer.
Reset the Code
  • To stop the flashing and beeps on the washer, hold down the "Start" and " Stop" buttons for 60 seconds. If this does not work, unplug the washer for 30 seconds and plug it back it or leave it unplugged since it is inoperable.
Parts
  • The main problem is with the machine control assembly. This whole part needs to be replaced. Depending on your model, prices range from $150 to $260, as of 2011.
Process
  • The installation of the new machine control assembly, requires manual installation and opening the washer itself. If you have never taken apart or repaired a washer, a professional should provide the service and care. Contact Whirlpool support for more information on repairs and warranty.

F1 means the central electrical control unit, i.e. the onboard computer, has fatally failed. Unless you have both the skill and tools to test the guts of this computer, you're stuck replacing it. Good news, three screws at the rear to expose the control panel, then unplug one unit; plug in the new one. Just to be on the safe side, color code all the plugs and receptacles. At wholesale, the part is $175.00. CODE 083009 part W10189966 CNTRL-ELEC

Washer starts to fill then stops /now warsher wont wash


I too was having the same problem and I almost paid to have it repaired, which would have cost a few hundred dollars, thanfully I called the recall line after reading some of the other post on here and my machine was elgible for a upgraded on the control panel so didn' t cost anything for us. Sears told us that the F1 code is a miscommunication in the control panel, basically the machine is confused and don't know what to do so it stops and gives that code. Hope it helps!
