SOURCE: My Cabrio dryer is flashing f1. What does this

This is from a service bulletin. This may be of interest to you. There have been many problems with these machines in this area. Anyway, I sympathize and hope this helps. Best wishes.

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.

with the air pressure system.

Comments: - I don't know what satifaction they will give you, but you could contact Whirlpool. I don't know if it's fact, but some folks with this problem said that they were able to get the cost of repair covered in some cases, while others complained that they got no proper assistance from the manufacturer at all, so I really don't know for sure what good it will do, but it's worth a try. I'm sorry for your trouble and hope you find a good resolution to your problem. Best of luck and best wishes.

F1 means the control board is shot. Call whirlpool and they should take care of the parts and labor even though your machine is out of warranty.

SOURCE: What does F1 mean on the cabrio washer?

I had the same error on my washing machine. I just called whirlpool customer service 1 800 253 1301. Apparently there are having several issues with this. I called them and after giving them the model number, and serial number, they gladly are replacing the washer board free of charge. They were excellent customer service, and i didnt even have to gripe! Thats what is good about customer service!

i have changed dozens of these main control boards for this problem. whirlpool knows it is an issue and if you call them they may send you the part for free or suggest you have a tech come out and check it first, but most certain you will need a new main board.

    I have a Whirlpool Cabrio top load washer. When I load the clothes and start the washer and it begins to run I hear an alarm, it stops and a F1 flashes on the display. What does this mean?


    F1 (F60-68)
    Primary Control Failure F then 1 flashes when there is a primary control failure. Replace the machine control assembly.
    See Accessing & Removing the Electronic Assemblies.
    F1 flashing on the display indicates a primary control failure.
    "F then 1 flashes when there is a primary control failure. Replace the machine control assembly."

    What does F1 error code mean on washer


    It means you have a control board fault. Call Whirlpool and tell them the fault you are getting and see if it's recalled. There's a good chance. You can install yourself or have and appliance tech do it.

    What does code f1 mean


    Hello

    Error code F1 means that the control of washer has either gone bad or about to go bad. This is a common issue with Whirlpool Cabrio washers. I have also seen them replacing the control without any charge, don't really know about the labor charges but they usually won't charge for the part. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

    F1 error on Whirlpool cabrio


    it means that the control board is not sensing the water pressure (this tells the machine how much water to put in the washer) in my experience you have to replace the control board which will cost over 200 plus labor which will be over a 100
