Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

My cabrio washer stops and flashes a F1 code more than once during a wash cycle and I have noticed that it does it with 19 minutes left also. I push the pause button once and then the start to accomplish the wash cycle but I have to do this more than once and have to stand by the washer the whole time. It is level and has no other problems that I am aware of. What do I do to fix this at no cost to me because the washer cost close to $1,000 to begin with. The washer was bought in march of 2007. Thank you.

F1 is a pressure sensor failure in the machine control board (computer ) this is about a 350.00 part plus install. This is not uncommon on these units. there is no other fix for this concern.You might try contacting whirlpool and explain you problem. At one time they were assisting customers with this issue after the warranty had expired for customer satisfaction. They are not obligated to due so but its worth the call. Other than that if you bought the part your self it is an easy install
Hope this helps Good Luck

I am getting a F1 code in my washer which causes it to stop several times during a wash cycle, what do I need to do?


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

If you own a Whirlpool Cabrio and are experiencing an F1 error, you're unable to finish or start a load of clothes. When the Whirlpool Cabrio displays an F1 error, this means the the control board is having difficulty communicating with the motor.

To fix your F1 error, you can first try to unplug your washing machine for 15 minutes and then plug it back in. If this doesn't work, you will need to replace the control board. The only tools that you need to replace the control board is a Phillips screw driver and a 1/4" hex head driver. Be sure to unplug the machine from the electrical outlet before performing any repairs.
After unplugging your Whirlpool Cabrio washer, carefully pull the washer away from the wall (Watch your drain hose and the two inlet hoses.) Next unscrew the 3 screws located on the back of the Whirlpool Cabrio. Next, take a picture or make note of where each plug connects to the control board. Next, unplug each plug and the pressure tube. Lastly, unscrew the 1/4 screw then remove control board. Replace with new control board and reverse your steps to install. The new board will fix the Whirlpool Cabrio F1 error.

The Whirlpool Cabrio and Kenmore Oasis (same machine) are infamous for this problem. Depending on the serial number you may be entitled to a new control board installed for free under a recall program. Call Whirlpool for eligibility. I had just had mine replaced last week for free and it runs fine now.
