Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer
I just called Whirlpool today 11/10/11 with the F1 issue. Whirlpool is contacting our local appliance store/repair place and arranging to pay them for the service call and work needed to repair the machine. In the meantime, the Whirlpool rep tells me the washer will most likely not be able to wash any more loads. With baby #6 coming in 5 weeks, this is a big concern! Hopefully the small town repair guys will come through for me.

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 for your question.
The F1 fault code on this washer indicates that the water level pressure transducer signal is out of range. The pressure transducer air hose tubing being pinched or crimped can cause this. A failed pressure transducer on the machine control board can also cause it.
The first image below shows the method for accessing the pressure transducer tube that runs from the bottom of the washer tub to the machine control. I recommend checking this air hose for pinches, twists or crimps.NOTE: Be sure to unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.
If you find no problems with the pressure transducer tube, then the machine control board will need to be replaced. The procedure for accessing and replacing the machine control board is shown in the second image below.
