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 foes Error code f1 mean?


    Error Code Definition
    • According to Appliance Parts Quick, the error code is defined as a "Primary Control Failure." This means that the small computer installed in the washer has failed to send, receive or communicate with any other part of the washer.
    Reset the Code
    • To stop the flashing and beeps on the washer, hold down the "Start" and " Stop" buttons for 60 seconds. If this does not work, unplug the washer for 30 seconds and plug it back it or leave it unplugged since it is inoperable.
    Parts
    • The main problem is with the machine control assembly. This whole part needs to be replaced. Depending on your model, prices range from $150 to $260, as of 2011.
    Process
    • The installation of the new machine control assembly, requires manual installation and opening the washer itself. If you have never taken apart or repaired a washer, a professional should provide the service and care. Contact Whirlpool support for more information on repairs and warranty.

    F1 means the central electrical control unit, i.e. the onboard computer, has fatally failed. Unless you have both the skill and tools to test the guts of this computer, you're stuck replacing it. Good news, three screws at the rear to expose the control panel, then unplug one unit; plug in the new one. Just to be on the safe side, color code all the plugs and receptacles. At wholesale, the part is $175.00. CODE 083009 part W10189966 CNTRL-ELEC

    My washer stops &and F-20 appears on viewer. Whats wrong with my washer


    water problem check screens in hoses and valves !! rrors F1, F11 and F20
    • Error F1 indicates a communication error between the computer and the washer. Unplug the washer for a minute and plug it back in, as this may correct the problem. Error F11 indicates a motor control error. It can be caused by improper voltage. Unplug the washer and check the connections. This may fix the problem. Error F20 indicates lack of water entering the machine. If there is no water in the washer, check that the water valves are turned on. If there is water in the washer, press "Stop" twice to drain the washer. Unplug the machine and check the hose connections.

    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?

    What does F1 code mean


    A Sublime Master at the Samurai School of Appliantology recently did battle with one of these newfangled Oasis washing machines. The F1 error code was intermittent, which made it impossible to troubleshoot. Turns out there’s a service bulletin out on this problem. Come, feast your bewildered eyeballs on the wisdom of the Masters.

    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
