Hi, the code means a rotor position sensor error. The first thing you want to do is see if the basket turns freely by hand. I had one the other day where a dish towell was caught between the basket and tub giving the error. You will have to open the top by using a putty knife and pushing in on the clips on each side. They are strong clips so you have to use some force. The whole top will lift up. Next you will have to remove the tub ring. It just snaps off. If you don't find anything between them, then I would suspect the rotor sensor itself. At the factory they sprayed a protective coating on them and sometimes this causes the problem. You would have to tip the washer back. The motor cover comes off witha allen head, just pulls down. Now there is 4 screws that hold the motor in place. Once you drop them, the plastic cover protector will come down along with the motor so observe carefully where it mounts back up. The motor connector will be the 3 pronged harness on the right side of the motor. The rotor position sensor will be on the left. Snap the positon sensor in and out about 8 or 9 times to get the coating off. If this doesn't work, and you keep getting the error, you will have to order the position sensor. I have had to order the harness as well in some cases...

    Washing machine is displaying F1 what does this mean


    From Lyle W.

    The F1 error code indicates a water level pressure transducer signal that is out of range. Here is a link for a previous answer regarding troubleshooting and repair for the F1 error code:

    Why does my Whirlpool washer model WTW6500SW1 display the fault code F1?

    The F51 error code indicates that the control board is not detecting the proper signal from the RPS (Rotor Position Sensor that monitors rpm's of the motor) sensor. This could be caused by an improper water fill level, an item stuck between the stainless steel spin basket and the plastic outer tub, an item under the washer that is interfering with motor spin, a failed RPS sensor, a wiring harness problem or a failed machine control board. Replacing the control board for the F1 problem described above may resolve the F51 error code problem at the same time.

    I provided extensive technical troubleshooting information in the images below that a technician would use to diagnose and repair the F51 error code. If you have advanced technical skills and can use this information, you may be able to repair the washer yourself. This information is intended for technicians. Follow electrical safety guidelines when using this information. Be sure that you unplug the washer

    to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components. Do not attempt any procedure that you are not completely confident that you can safely execute.

    If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.

    If you decide that you need a technician to service this washer, I recommend that you call the Whirlpool Customer Experience Center at 1-800-253-1301.

    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.

    What does F1 code mean


    A Sublime Master at the Samurai School of Appliantology recently did battle with one of these newfangled Oasis washing machines. The F1 error code was intermittent, which made it impossible to troubleshoot. Turns out there’s a service bulletin out on this problem. Come, feast your bewildered eyeballs on the wisdom of the Masters.

    Typically, we're going to be looking at a pressure sensor failure here, although there are a few possible culprits. There's some pretty detailed troubleshooting here:

    Whirlpool Cabrio top loading washer F1 Error


    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.
