This 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.

You don't have to accept or reject and rate this post to add information or post comments and follow-up questions should you need further assistance. But accepting a solution does not stop you from communicating with an expert. You may continue communicating with the expert as long as you need assistance regarding the issue stated herein.
NOTE: It is a good idea to take note of the wire harness connections before disconnecting them to prevent messing them up upon reconnection.

    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.

    Hello

    Error code F1 is caused when the control on your washer is either bad or about to go bad. This is a common issue with Whirlpool Cabrio washers and they are aware of this. 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 you for the part. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

    On my whirlpool cabrio washer an F1 warning light comes on and washer will NOT work.


    F1 is the control board failure and you need to replace the control board inside the machine that controls the entire machines cycles

    Get in touch with whirlpool and they should fix it for free. F1 is a control board error, and whirlpool did a recall on the cabrio control boards, so they should take care of it for you.

    Error message on WTW6200sw


    Called Whirlpool to report the F1 problem on my over 2 year old, out of warranty, Cabrio washer. I was told that a repairman would be over and that I was responsible for the service call, parts and labor. Then later, I read on this site about this washer having a service recall that corrects the "Machine Control Assy" failure that causes the F1 code. I called back Whirlpool asking why they never said anything about it when I called earlier. This customer service rep said there was a recall which was stopped (he did not know why) but he would extend my warranty (at no charge) for an additional 3 months starting today which will cover all the repair charges.
    I asked of the repairman when he came, if he was aware that Whirlpool was covering all parts, labor and service call. He said “yes”, prceeded to check the machine and confirmed that it needed a “Control Assy”. He ordered the part from my home (which was delivered to me) and made an appointment to return the following week to install, which he did.
    The machine is now up and running and thanks to contributors to this board, I became aware of Whirlpool taking responsibility for this part failure.
