Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Yes you are right you can call 1-800-253-1301 whirlpool will send a tech. to fix it and pay for the part. Error F1 means primary control failure and to resolve this you’ll have to replace the machine control assembly. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

    I keep getting the F50 code and I also got the SD code a couple of times. I followed the manuals directions and pressed pause/cancel and it still came back. We also unplugged the washer for about 30...


    The "Sd" or Suds Detected error means that you used too much detergent. Reduce the amount of detergent that you use, and properly measure it.
    When you receive the "F50" code, it means that the motor position sensor does not sense that the basket is moving. Remove any remaining packing material from the tub.

    Hope this helps.. :)

    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!

    My Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6400SW2 has a F50 error. I


    The F50 error code indicates that the RPS (rotor position sensor) detects no motor rotation. Check to see if the basket spins freely. If not, you could have an item caught between the outer tub and the inner spin basket. A toy or other item underneath the washer could also prevent the basket from spinning and would result in this F50 code.

    If the basket spins freely, you could have a wiring failure that would prevent the motor from spinning.

    My washer was supposed to go in to spin cycle and alarmed with I believe F1. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem


    There is a recall for the Cabrio for having the "F1" error(I had mine fixed by whirpool for free). Sounds like you are getting the F1 error code. If you have not had the washer repaired under the warranty program then you should give Whirlpool a call and get it repaired under warranty. When you call them say that you are getting the "F1" error code and have read on the internet that there is a recall. Have your model number,serial number and date of purchase available. They will send someone out to inspect the washer and repair if they have the control board in stock(they had to order mine and it took 2 days for it to arrive). I also located the phone number you will need to call for service...1-800-253-1301

    There is a recall for the Cabrio F1 error code issue. I had mine fixed for free. They will have to replace the control board. You will need to call 1-800-253-1301 and tell them that your Cabrio washer is having the F1 error code and you read on the internet that Whirlpool has been making repairs. Have your model number, serial number, and purchase date ready for the person on the phone. The guy that repaired mine also replaced the washboard at the bottom for free...just ask the tech about it when he is there.
