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 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

There is a recall for this machine. The F1 error code is for a "failed control board". Call 1-866-698-2538 to have it repaired.

The f1 code on the Maytag Bravos top loading washer keeps going off and stopping the machine


Please contact Maytag to inquire about the code F1. They should check the system and that that code is a courtesy repair and should be scheduled for a someone to come out to fix it. FREE
It is possible that the F1 code was caused by your laundry habits (detergent), but I think that is unlikely. Too many of these machines have problems with the F1 error code. There is a known problem with the Oasis / Cabrio / Bravos machines.

F1 error


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 !!

Code F1 keeps coming on and stops cycle.


F1 is a primary control failure. First unplug the machine,open the control panel. Locate the p-11 connector. Unplug it and re-plug it securely. If the code continues or the machine fails to operate,replace the machine controller.
