If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these:
Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?
If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.
check these, if still the problem persists then let me know for further help.

HELLO, Error code F1 indicates a control failure and most likely the machine control board will have to be replaced. Depending on when you purchased the machine, the board may be covered under extended component warranty.
I had the same F1 problem and they had to replace the control board and something relating to the balance. The tech told me this is a common problem.

The "F51" error code is common problem with the Cabrio. This is an RPS sensor error. The sensor is mounted along the motor windings under the washer and detects the rotation spin speed. The sensors on these units can go bad, causing the error code, and it has been a frequent problem. I would recommend you contact Whirlpool first (due to the unit only being a year old) and see if there is a recall or upgrade on this part. I believe there is. The repair would then be covered by the manufacturer. If I give you the steps to access and/or replace the sensor at this point, you may be voiding any existing warranty you may still have. Some components carry a longer warranty than your normal one year limited warranty from the manufacturer. Something you may consider.
If you have further questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you in some way.

ld is for long drain,first did you pull the drain pump to make sure something wasn't stuck in it stopping it from turning or blocking the opening,it's the one on the right bottom as you standing in front of the unit,the on on the left is the recirculating pump,if so you can use a putty knife to open the top of the machine there are two spring clips on on either side about three inches in if you use a flashlight you can see where they are.push them in one at a time while lifting the top and be careful of the lid it will spring open as you lift the top.
Once open remove the tub cover (the white plastic cover around the top of the tub) after removing the recirculating hose on the left rear corner.
Then remove the center cap on the wash plate(agitator)you'll see a 7/16 bolt through the center remove that and pull the wash plate straight up and off. once you've done this you can lift the entire spin basket out.
Now you want to look in the bottom in the rear of the outer tub there is a cover over the drain with two screws in it if by this time you haven't found the issue (clothing stuck in the cover)then you may have a bad drain pump.
