Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer
is a problem associated with the machine/motor control assembly and/or
the pressure sensor system. Either the machine/motor control assembly is
at fault or it is sensing an error in the signal from the air pressure
sensor circuit. Unplug the machine for half an hour or so to forcibly
reset the machine/motor control assembly and eliminate the possibility
of a simple electronic glitch.
Remove the three screws from the rear of the console assembly, if unplugging the machine does not resolve the issue, then pull console towards the front of washer to hinge it open and remove console. The machine/motor control assembly is located on the right hand side of the machine that is enclosed in a casing with a clear tube/hose connected to it.
The clear tube/hose is the pressure hose. Check to make sure that everything connected to the machine/motor control assembly is properly attached and fully inserted and the pressure hose has no air leak, kinks, or moisture.
Turn off the water supply to the washer and disconnect the hot and cold water hoses from the rear of the washer then remove the end of the drain hose from where it is installed. Remove the eight screws from the rear panel and remove the panel.
Inspect the pressure hose for evidence of water then replace the hose (part number 353244) if water or moisture is present. Inspect the air dome hose connection port for lint or flashing.
Use a small round device such as a small screwdriver to ensure that there is nothing blocking the air dome outlet on the tub.
Replace the machine/motor control assembly (part number W10189966) if and only if verified that there are no issues with the air pressure system. Remove all the wire connections to the machine/motor control then remove the screw holding it to the console tray. Two plastic legs on the rear of the machine/motor control assembly are fitted into the console tray. Lift the front of the control assembly to pivot it out from the console tray. Reinstall the new machine/motor control assembly then secure it to the console tray and reconnect the wire harnesses.

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.
