To Access/replace the CCU:

#1

Unplug the Whirlpool Cabrio power cord from the wall outlet. Turn off the water supply to the washing machine. Pull the washer away from the wall so that you can access the screws behind the control console. Remove the hex head screws securing the control console to the washer with a nut driver. The screws are on the lower rear edge of the control console.
#2

Lift the control console up, and rotate the console forward so that the face of the console is resting on the top of the washer. Locate the interface board cable connector to the right of the plastic tube on the back of the console. Pull the end of the connector straight out of the control console. The primary machine control is the box that the plastic tube connects.
#3

Place small pieces of masking tape around the nine wires connecting to the primary machine console. Label the wire locations onto the masking tape with a pencil. Grasp each wire at the connector with your fingers, and pull the wires away from the primary control. Pull the plastic tube out of the primary control.
#4

Locate the nut toward the bottom of the primary control. Remove the nut with a nut driver. Lift the front of the primary control slightly, and slide it down to disengage the retaining clips. Pull the primary control out of the control console. Insert the new primary control into the control console. Slide the primary control up to engage the lower clips. Secure the primary control to the console with the single hex head screw.
#5

Push each of the wire connectors into their respective positions on the primary control until they lock into place. Push the plastic tube hose over the port on the right side of the primary control. Remove the small pieces of masking tape from the wires.
#6

Position the control console back upright on the top of the washer. Secure the control console to the washer with the three hex head retaining screws. Slide the washer back against the wall. Turn on the water supply and plug the washer into the wall outlet.

F1 code appears after starting and now during the wash


You need a new main control board. F1 means that the board cannot sense water in the machine. You may want to call your manufacturer to see if the board was recalled. They were having alot of problems with that error code and recalled control boards on some washers

Starting the machine it buzzes and it read F1 what does this mean?


F1 is a fatal error within the main control. You will need to replace the control. It is accessed by loosening the screws from the rear control panel.

Unpgug the machine for 1 minute and then power back up. If fault reoccurrs check all connectors.

How long have you had this machine? Has it always been plugged into the same outlet? Is is sharing an outlets with another device?

I am not able to wash any laundry. when I press start.....F1 flashes and a beeping noise sounds. I am unable to cancel it out, open door... anything. Nothing works.


Hello

F1 error and the beeping sounds in your Kenmore front load washer means that the Electronic control board has gone bad and needs replacement. You can buy the parts from Sears if you want to do the repair yourself. 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 !!

Mine is doing the same exact thing. Just after I press "Start", the F1 starts beeping. Then at 23 minutes into the cycle, it does it again. So frustrating! What is wrong with this machine?

Crazy washing machine


I have had the same error code message. I bought my washing machine in March 2006. I called 1-800-4-my-home (Sears repair) since I have a 3-year warranty. The gal said they don't really need to send out a repair person. She said it's most likely a computer malfunction. She said to unplug it for 2-minutes and plug it back in or you can turn off the breaker to your laundry room for 2-minutes and flick it back on. If that doesn't help, you may need a technician to come out and look at it. Hope this works for you!
