SOURCE: Whirlpool cabrio washer keeps stopping

F1 means you need to replace the mcu which is about 100 dollars or more. Use part w10201186 and have the model and serial number in case there is a replacement, make sure it is revision B or later on any alternative boards.

F1 signal what is the meaning


Pressure Signal Out-of-Range
F then 1 flashes when the control detects an out of range pressure signal.
* Check pressure hose connection from tub to machine/motor control. Is hose pinched or kinked?
* If F then 1 repeats numerous times after POWER is pressed and the pressure hose connection is not pinched or kinked, replace the machine/motor control.

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?

My whirlpool cabrio washing machine keeps giving me an F1 ERROR when it goes to the rinse cycle. It will complete the wash after i hit cancel reset and wash. Any ideas?


F1(F68)-Pressure Signal Out-of-Range
I telephoned Whirlpool at 1-800-253-1301. Whirlpool acknowledged the F1 fault and will send a serviceman, free parts and labor, to correct the problem concerning the "famous" F1 fault. This is even for washers out of warranty! This concerns model WTW6600SW2 washers. Be sure to get the authorization code from them so the service person cannot argue about costs.

What does code f1 mean


Hello

Error code F1 means that the control of washer has either gone bad or about to go bad. This is a common issue with Whirlpool Cabrio washers. I have also seen them replacing the control without any charge, don't really know about the labor charges but they usually won't charge for the part. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I get an F1 signal when I start the washer. I can get it to go away by switching what kind of load it is but it keeps coming back?


F1 means communication error, Unplug washer for 2 mins.. What might have caused this problem is a power glitch of some kind.
