Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Whirlpool model WTW6600SW top loading washer: Receive an F1 error code when initially trying to start a load, after about 3 tries it will start, and run the entire load. The machine is approx. 2 yrs old, and have had no problems with it at all. Bought a 4 year warranty thru Lowes when it was purchased, but cannot call today due to it being Sunday. Will call tomorrow, but wondering if there were any ideas? I have seen it could be a circuit board, but also saw where it could be a water pressure control problem?

Hi there,

Well error F1 means the central electrical control unit, i.e. the onboard computer, has fatally failed.
First of all you may leave unplugging the washer from the wall, leave it unplugged for a while. That may reset the internal computer chip. If further you have the same problem then it need some part (chip) replacement need some skills of electronics, part is $150 CODE 083009 part W10189966 CNTRL-ELEC. Post comments for further help or information...........
Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

    F1 is displayed on washer wtw6600sw-wht


    Hello & Welcome to FixYa

    F1 error in your whirlpool cabrio indicates bad control and should be replaced to resolve the error code. However, you can contact Whirlpool as well prior to replacing the control yourself as I have seen whirlpool paying for the parts themselves just because this is known to be a common issue. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

    F1 means the control board is shot. Call whirlpool and they should take care of the parts and labor even though your machine is out of warranty.

    First off I hope you have a Sears unit and second you did not pay a penny. Your F 1 error is a Primary control failure. Part W10104830 and one other do F1 and a oL code.
    If you own a Sears machine you qualify for a recall under sf26-779B.
    There is two parts to this call the board and a washplate
    MCU part # W10201186
    Washplate # W10077050
    Recall will need your name and phone number and the machine model and serial number.

    If you meet all of these conditions to the letter call Sears Recall at 1-800-659-7026
