A fault code of "F" then "1" flashes when there is a primary control failure.

You will need to replace the machine/motor control assembly. Page 14 and 16, in the manual HERE will help you with this.

First unplug the machine for 20 minutes (minimum) to attempt to reset the board.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

    My Whirlpool Cabrio (Model Number: WTW6400SW2) washing machine gets an F1 error signal 5 seconds after I power it on to wash something, I have to pause it and then restart it for it to work,


    Your machine needs a new control. The F1 code is an error within the main machine control, and it will only get worse the longer it goes. CLICK HERE for the part. Using coupon code 1050 will get you a discount on the part!

    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.

    What does the code F1 mean?? We seem to be getting it a lot when starting a load


    Hi,


    The "F1" error code on the Whirlpool cabrio is quite common, and generally has to do with the control board. Replacing the control panel may resolve this issue. However, I believe Whirlpool is aware of the F1 issue with the Cabrio, and is fixing some machines for free. Please call 1-800-253-1301 for more details and see if you are eligible for a free repair.

    Thank you !!

    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
