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.

My washer says F1 about 6 times before it will start. I have to stand there and hit the pause button 6 times before it goes into the cycle. Then when it is ready to rinse, it will say F1 again. Is this...


It is most likely the main control board. They have been having alot of problems with that machine flashing F1. They did a recall on the main control board on some of those washers. You might want to call the manufacturer to see if your machine is one of them.

What is the problem when F1 flashes


This will depend on whether F1 is flashing on both drawers or just one (which one).
F1 flashing in both drawers means there is water at the base of the housing which had triggered the flood switch. you will have to get the bottom drawer out and dry the base with towels and hair dryer. Make sure the power is turned off. Need to find the cause of the water leak. Could be drawer seal, broken hose or too much foam in detergent.

If F1 is coming in one drawer and the other drawer has blank display. The power is lost to the drawer with blank display. Could be thermal fuse blown or problem with power board at the base.

Hope this helps.

How to shut off dishwasher? F1 is flashing on control panel.


Hi now F1 mean that your machine has triggered the flood alarm. there are two reasons this happens-- 1st-- there is a leak on one or both of your drawers. they leak because you might have a hole in one of the hoses or your lid is not shutting properly etc. the 2nd reason is that some water or soap suds escaped from the overflow. now i would like you to turn the machine off at the wall and leave it off for a couple of days to dry it out. then turn it on and use the lower drawer for one cycle. if it does not go F1 then try the top drawer for one cycle and see how it goes. if it continues to flash F1 then reply back for further help. good luck.

Dishwasher keeps flashing F1


F1 on your dishwasher is the fault code for leaking inside the machine. the water has caused the flood switch to activate. have you put any detergent rather than your normal dishwasher detergent into the machine? if you have, the water probably leaked out of your overflow, if not, then you have a leak on the top drawer or bottom drawer. the easiest way to check is to leave the machine off for a couple of days until it drys then turn on the bottom drawer to go thru a cycle.if the F1 comes up again then the problem is on your bottom drawer. if F1 does not come up then try the top drawer. please reply if you require further help.

I just had the panel rewired fro f51 now i have f1


F1 is a primary control failure. When I get my F1 I hit pause/clear and then start - it usally begins its cylce then bumps back to F1. If I do this about 3-7 time it will clear. Then on rinse we go again. Some days I have a 3-F1 restart and somedays it is a 7-F1 restart. Just depends on the day. No rhyme or reason. I know I have to replace the main circuit board but $160 + labor is not what I want to do, so I fuss over the F1 and move on.

Flashing F1 code, how do I fix


F1 code is water leaking. 1- Dry out the bottom housing to make the F1 disappear. 2- Replace Actuators and the lid seal to prevent this happens again. The actuators is pulling down from the left and right sides to hold the top lid against the top surface of the tube groove to seal water from coming out during the wash cycle. When actuators are bad, they can not hold the lid down or make the lid tilted to one side hence the leak is coming. When the lid is tilted for a long time the seal is distorted then it has to be replaced since it is out of tube groove shape

Dishwasher problem


F1 is a flood code meaning excessive amounts of water have collected on the bottom catch basin. If a flood condition is detected, both draws will activate the drain motors and flash F1. Remove the bottom drawer and dry the catch basin.
