Long and short of it is you are going to need a new machine control unit (computer) the pressure sensor that reads the water level is failing. This is a known problem with these units,this problem will only get worse, The one thing I will tell you is make sure you are using HE detergent. One of the things that cause these computers to go bad is to much or wrong detergent used and it fills up the pressure sensor hose with soapy water that goes right into the computer and electronics and suds dont mix.....

I am getting a F1 code in my washer which causes it to stop several times during a wash cycle, what do I need to do?


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

If you own a Whirlpool Cabrio and are experiencing an F1 error, you're unable to finish or start a load of clothes. When the Whirlpool Cabrio displays an F1 error, this means the the control board is having difficulty communicating with the motor.

To fix your F1 error, you can first try to unplug your washing machine for 15 minutes and then plug it back in. If this doesn't work, you will need to replace the control board. The only tools that you need to replace the control board is a Phillips screw driver and a 1/4" hex head driver. Be sure to unplug the machine from the electrical outlet before performing any repairs.
After unplugging your Whirlpool Cabrio washer, carefully pull the washer away from the wall (Watch your drain hose and the two inlet hoses.) Next unscrew the 3 screws located on the back of the Whirlpool Cabrio. Next, take a picture or make note of where each plug connects to the control board. Next, unplug each plug and the pressure tube. Lastly, unscrew the 1/4 screw then remove control board. Replace with new control board and reverse your steps to install. The new board will fix the Whirlpool Cabrio F1 error.

The F1 error code means that the computer thinks a button on the touchpad is stuck. Sometimes this can be resolved by making sure the touchpad connector fits tight into the control board. The F1 code can be cleared by pushing CANCEL/OFF. If it returns the touchpad needs to be replaced .

Stop during any cycle followed by an f-1 code


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Error Code F1 means that the control is either bad or the wiring harness to the control has some issues. Please check the control board for any bad components as you might need complete replacement of the control. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

F1 error code on Kenmore Oasis He


I think there might be a recall on your washer call to see. I am not for sure that there is a recall but I a m pretty sure there is. So don't quote me on that. the f1 error code usually means that you have a bad board. f1 means that your pressure switch line is failing and this is all in your board. check your owners manual if whirlpool is not going to pay for this repair sometimes there are extended warranties in your manual

Kenmore Oasis HE shuts off during wash cycle and gives F1 error


F1 error means the main control computer board. see other posts in this section as there are many who are complaining about the same problem. buying the new board (revised) will solve the F1 problem, but other problems will soon crop up on this POS washer. if you have the chance to return it to sears, return it immediately!!!!

Kenmore Elite Oasis HE F1 Error


Im sorry to tell you but you have a bad control board. This was a faulty board from the factory. There is a class action lawsuit agianst whirlpool (whirlpool made the oasis). Try calling to get whirlpool to fix it. Maybe try joining the lawsuit. They have remanufactured the part so the new one wont do that again. Its a great machine when it works right.
