Question about Washing Machines
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

Tips for a great answer:
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.
