SOURCE: Whirlpool Cabrio HE washing machine

I work for an appliance repair company and I had a recent service call for the same exact situation on this washer. I also know that Rotary Position Sensor is linked to the F-51 error code. I have found that this is not always the case. On this paticular call the F-51 error code was caused by a piece of clothing (sock, wash cloth, etc.) being stuck or jammed between the internal basket and the outer tub. I removed the cloth and the washer ran fine, so give that a check first before you spend the money.

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.

Unballenced on spin even when empty


It may come up an unbalanced load but it may a sensor that is on recall. I have a Whirlpool Cabrio top loader and after I start it it says F1 which is a sensor on recall and I have to restart it several times before it continues the load. Go to their web site and you can look up the exact model to see if yours has a recall as well.

Every time I start the washer it stops and displays a F1


At first you can just cancel and start a few times and it will get it going for you.. However, Whirlpool has not put out for the public to know that there is a recall on the board.. Call whirlpool and let them know that you are having this issue and they will send a tech out, free of charge, and fix the problem... I just did this 2 weeks ago... Solved the F1 problem..

I have a Whirlpool cabrio washer that displays LF when I try to start a wash load. The water comes into the tub but it doesn't fill. After some time, maybe 10 minutes, the washer stops and displays LF....


Aha the old LF : Captain we have a problem. What is it Spock? Computers cannot confirm water is filling, water level does not change. Spock you did pay the water bill this month? What could it be Spock? Captain the inlet screens appear to have contaminants. Suggest you jettison them. If that does not solve it see test #2b7fe528.jpg

The Whirlpool Cabrio and Kenmore Oasis (same machine) are infamous for this problem. Depending on the serial number you may be entitled to a new control board installed for free under a recall program. Call Whirlpool for eligibility. I had just had mine replaced last week for free and it runs fine now.

I have a whirpool cabrio It works just for one minute and then it stops


Does the display say F1? Call Whirlpool at 800-659-7026 and see if you qualify for a recall upgrade of the control board. It's a very common problem.

Machine continues to display F1 and other F displays. Moved clothes around and pushed power which started machine again, but interupted again shortly afterwards with beeping.


There is a recall on this washer.
Please call Whirlpool...800-253-1301
There is a recall on the Cabrio Whirlpool washer for the F1 code.
The problem is the main computer brain - it is a common defect that whirlpool likes to keep quiet.

Hope this is helpful for you. There is, unfortunately, no end-user fix.
