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.

The f1 code pops up


Hello

F1 error with your whirlpool cabrio is a common issue with these types of washers. This error indicates bad control and should be replaced to resolve the error code. However, you can contact Whirlpool as well prior to replacing the control yourself as I have seen whirlpool paying for the parts themselves just because this is known issue for them. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

F1 ERROR MESSAGE ON CABRIO. I STOP THEN START AND ALL IS OK. BUT, TO AVOID THIS, WHAT PART DO I NEED TO FIX THE PROBLEM, SOMEWHERE I READ SOMETHING ABOUT A PART IN THE LOWER REAR PORTION OF THE WASHER?


Hi
F1 error which is a common issue with Cabrio washers indicates primary control failure and manufacturer is aware of it. To resolve this issue I'll recommend you to contact Whirlpool at 800-253-1301 so that they can replace the parts without any charges. Please let me know if you need more help.

My washer keeps shutting off and F1 shows up on the display.


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 !!

How to fix my Whirlpool Cabrio washing machine F1 code that keeps popping up whenever I turn on the washing machine.


Hello, error F1 means primary control failure and to resolve this you’ll have to replace the machine control assembly. To remove and replace the control you’ll have to unplug the washer and then remove three screws from the rear of the console assembly. Pull console towards front of washer to hinge open and/or remove console. Then remove the one screw holding the machine/motor control assembly to the console tray and two plastic legs on the rear of the machine/motor control assembly that fit into the console tray.
Thanks

Wtw6600sb1 has a f1 code what's the problem?


The control board is shot. Whirlpool did a recall on those boards, so get in touch with them and see if your machine is covered. If it is, whirlpool will cover the parts and labor for free.
