The F1 error code on this washer indicates a Primary Control Board failure.



It is likely that the machine control board will need to be replaced to correct this problem.



The part number for the machine control board is undetermineable because you have not provided me with the exact model # of your washer.



The procedure for replacing the machine control board is provided HERE

NOTE: Be sure to unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.



There is a slight possibility that a problem with the pressure switch hose could be causing this problem.

A pinched or twisted air hose can cause this fault code.

When you open the console, check the air hose connected to the pressure switch on the machine control board.

If it is pinched or crimped, I recommend rerouting the hose to resolve this problem.

This may fix your problem without replacing the control board.



NOTE: You may want to check for this condition before ordering the control board. Most electronic control boards cannot be returned for a refund or credit.



If you find no apparent problems with the air hose on the pressure switch, then replacing the machine control board on this washer should correct your problem. There is a risk involved in replacing this part yourself.

As noted above, you could have a problem with the air pressure hose that is not apparent upon your initial inspection. A service technician would normally need to properly and thoroughly diagnose this problem before replacing the control board.

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

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

What is code F1 mean on the Whilrpool Cabrio. The washer stops about 5 seconds when I first put it on.


Ok the Cabrios have alot of problems. In your owners manual there is a big page where it gives you errors codes and what to do it also givees you a diagnostic feature which helps determine the problem. This site gives you the fault codes and what to replace. F1 means primary control failure. Also sometimes when the control board is bad something else could also be wrong. Good Luck

My f1 light keeps coming on and stops my washer we have lost our manual


Hi,

F1 on your model means you have an internal short in the machine control board. There are 2 control boards if you take the console off--- the one on the right is the motor control board and the one on the left is the machine control. The part runs about $200 for the part alone.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

F1 error code on Kenmore Oasis He


I think there might be a recall on your washer call to see. I am not for sure that there is a recall but I a m pretty sure there is. So don't quote me on that. the f1 error code usually means that you have a bad board. f1 means that your pressure switch line is failing and this is all in your board. check your owners manual if whirlpool is not going to pay for this repair sometimes there are extended warranties in your manual

jenkle, F then 1 flashes when there is a primary control failure. There is a couple of things you can try. 1. Unplug the machine for 2 minutes and see if the error returns. If it does, try activating the auto diagnostic mode. With the washer plugged in and all indicator lights off, select any key except power, start and stop. Here's what you do; press/hold for 3 seconds, release for 3 seconds, press/hold for 3 seconds, release for 3 seconds, press and hold for 3 seconds. If you did it right all indicators will light and 88 will appear in the display. If there are any faults, they will then display, look for a F-60 through 68. This will confirm the board is corrupt. If no faults are found the machine will go through a five minute automatic test cycle. To stop the test, just press stop/cancel. Check your owners manual and see how long the board is warranteed.
