F1(F68)-Pressure Signal Out-of-Range I telephoned Whirlpool at 1-800-253-1301. Whirlpool acknowledged the F1 fault and will send a serviceman, free parts and labor, to correct the problem concerning the "famous" F1 fault. This is even for washers out of warranty! This concerns model WTW6600SW2 washers. Be sure to get the authorization code from them so the service person cannot argue about costs.
Error Code F1 means that the control is either bad or the wiring harness to the control has some issues. Please check the control board for any bad components as you might need complete replacement of the control. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
F54 = Motor Control Overcurrent
Does the basket turn freely? If not, determine cause of friction.
There is a detailed repair manual inside the machine. If you open the
top of the machine with a screw driver in the front you will find the
manual on the inside of the front panel.
I just finished installing my new control unit for my Kenmore Oasis and my F1 problems are GONE! I ordered it from Sears Direct Parts. With shipping and taxes it came out to about $174 for the part, but our issues are gone and now we can wash a load of clothes without having to reset it several times.
The F1 code(60-68) means primary control failure. The treatment for this problem is to replace the primary control panel. It is very easy to replace. Here is my story, I had the F50 code appear and my machine would not drain or spin a load of clothes. My machine was only 7 months old thus still under warranty. I called for service and they came in 2 days, I watched as the repairman popped the top of the machine up. He used a screwdriver that he placed in the crevice on the front of the machine, just below the lid. Inside the machine, he pulled out a book. I asked if he took that out of my machine, he hesitantly said "yes" and then told me that every machine has a service book in it. It has a list of codes and gives the serviceman step by step instructions. He ordered parts and rescheduled another service date. Well the service date was this morning, however I had not yet received the parts for the repair. This made me very upset that I once again had to schedule another date a week later. OK, mind you I have not done laundry in 2 1/2 weeks. The part came tonight and I took it upon myself to fix the damn machine myself because I am stubborn like that. IT WORKS!!!!!!!!!! Who needs a repairman, my husband thought I was joking that I was going to fix it myself. Good Luck!!!
