It appears your thermal fuse has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

It is possible you have a broken drum belt. You may need to call a qualified service man as changing a belt can be tricky.

What does F-1 mean on a Duet front load dryer? Our dryer's lights will turn on but, the dryer will not start up. At first we thought the control panel was locked out. But, it wasn't.


The "F-1" error code means a failure occurred with the electronic controls.. This could mean that wires are broken, the electronics shorted out or a manufacturer's default error shut the washer down.

Prevention/Solution: The electronic control panel needs replacement. Find your dryer serial number and search for the part online. This is a lengthy job that usually requires a repairman unless you have dealt with and repaired dryers before.

If your dryer was purchased within the past couple of years, the dryer could be covered under the warranty. Visit the Whirlpool customer service page for more information or Whirlpool-Duet-Dryer-fault-codes

Hope this helps.
