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.

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.

My washer stops &and F-20 appears on viewer. Whats wrong with my washer


water problem check screens in hoses and valves !! rrors F1, F11 and F20
  • Error F1 indicates a communication error between the computer and the washer. Unplug the washer for a minute and plug it back in, as this may correct the problem. Error F11 indicates a motor control error. It can be caused by improper voltage. Unplug the washer and check the connections. This may fix the problem. Error F20 indicates lack of water entering the machine. If there is no water in the washer, check that the water valves are turned on. If there is water in the washer, press "Stop" twice to drain the washer. Unplug the machine and check the hose connections.

Washer flashes f 1 on the display window


Hello,

The F1 error means that water pressure into the washer is out of range...the control on the washer learns the water pressure coming in from when it was brand new it is capable of learning just the water pressure to your house since it will vary from your neighbors...after it has learned what the normal pressure is if it doesnt see that normal pressure coming into the washer it will throw up the F1 error code

What to check is if water is coming into the washer from the rubber fill hoses with as much pressure as always did...things that could cause lesser pressure is; kinked/crushed fill hose,sediment built up in the filter screens inside of the water inlet valve( can be checked by turning off water and removing hoses and pop screen out from the back of washer where the hoses connect to)


If the filter screens are clear and water seems to coming from the hoses with good pressure...the washer control board would need to be replaced

Kenmore elite, oasis, model # 110.2703, at exactly 19 min left, at the starting of the rinse cycle it flashes the F1 code, i push stop then start untill it stays on, usually takes about 4-5 trys


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.

F-1


According to the manufacturer instructions the "F1" error code means a primary control failure. The correction is to replace the machine control assembly.
There is a recall on the unit - sometimes they will cover it even out of warranty.

Here is the number to call:
1-866-698-2538

ALSO - SEE THIS popular thread about the F1 error.


There is a SMALL chance something is clogging the pump (small sock toy etc.) SEE HERE for all possibilities to the F1 error

The Kenmore Elite washing machine gets an F1 code on the digital readout then stops. Once the start and stop buttons are cycled a couple of times the machine starts running again.


Check to see if the screens for your hot and cold water connections are plugged with grit.
Or else the problem might be due to factory defect in the control circuit board of this washer.

My washer keep showing F1 error and then stop, I clear the code, start againg and in a few minust will show back F1 code and stop


Remove the three screws in the back of the control panel and lift the control panel up. You should see a clear plastic tube to the far right going into a gray plastic box.
There is either a kink or break in this hose or the controller board (the grey box) is bad.
Try removing the hose and blowing in it to check for any resistance (clog).

I just bought a controller and they run about $200
