The F1 error usually indicates a serious Washing Machine 'controller' or Logic board malfunctions: your washing machine should still be under warranty or may even be subject to a recall campaign due to a manufacturing flaw. You will need your washing machine details such as model number. serial number, manufacture date and proof of purchase before calling the manufacturer help desk (as your machine is over 12 months old, the reseller will not normally assist but you an always ask them for assistance first).
To see if you have an intermittent controller issue, completely unplug the AC main plug first for say 5 minutes and replug to see if the error resets itself.
Hope it helps.

Jenn air oven door locked after getting an F1 message after the self cleaning was done..help i cant unlock it


F1 touch pad / ERC test This simple test will help determine
whether the ERC (Electronic Range Control or Clock) or the touch pad is
defective when F1 error code is present.



Note: Some models incorporate the touch pad in to the ERC as a single
assembly, in which case this test is not necessary. Simply replace the ERC
(Clock).



Warning: If you feel in any way uncomfortable performing this test or
making this repair, please contact a qualified appliance repair technician.


1. Disconnect power to the range (unplug the range power cord or turn the power off to the range at the circuit breaker). It is very important that the power to the range has been disconnected, so please double check before continuing


2. Gain access inside the control panel.

3. Disconnect the touch pad (also called keypad or membrane switch) ribbon from the ERC


4. Make sure there are no lose wires, or anything else that may cause a short when power is turned back on. Assemble the control panel back the way it was


5. Turn the power back on.

6. Wait for at least one hour to see if the F1 code comes back (usually accompanied by a beeping sound)


7. If F1 comes back, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad.

F1 error


The heater unit in the bottom drawer is blown. This causes power to shut off to the controller. The effect of this is the F1 error on the top drawer.

If you get the heater on bottom drawer fixed, that should take care of the F1 error in the top drawer.

Can you tell me what an F1 error Message means - 30 minutes into baking, I got beeping and an F1 error message. Canceling did not turn the oven off and the only thing I could do is turn it off at the...


Hi,

"F1" code clearly indicates that main control board has failed. The possible fix for this kind of problem is you have to replace the faulty circuit board. This is the only solution and you cant repair anything else in this unit when F1 flashes.
Thank you !!

My Gallery Series Range is blinking F1 and will not stop blinking


There is a test for this on all ranges that 'they' recommend trying for the F1 code. It does involve some dis -assembly of the range. Do this only if you are comfortable. Other wise call for service.

TURN POWER OFF TO RANGE FIRST THING!

I jhavent got to figure out what an F1 is. I suspect its a "Fill" code 1?

Does it fill with water okay? If it dosnt fill within a cretian time I bet the computer see this and causes a F1? But Im guessing.

If it is this take your hoses off the washer not the faucet. put loose ends in the washer tub and hold em down while Turning on the water. Look for rust, sand or any thing that might be coming into the screens. If you have low water pressure this could be the cause also. But only remove the hose on the faucet end if you have low water pressure then look for the screens on the faucet end.
Also check the inlet of the washer at the water valve for mud, dirt or anything.

I need to know if this is what an F1 code is if you wouldn't mind posting back and if this helps you please rate me as high as you can. Thank you and good luck.
