    BrandsMart U.S.A. on 04/01/2007 with no extended warranty, I called

    customer service @ 1-800-253-1301 they will send a repair team to fix

    the problem on Saturday October 11, between 8 & 5 pm.

    Stay tunned.

    Well, we had the same F1 problem. I called Whirlpool and the rep said that they were familiar with that issue and would schedule a service visit to fix it at no cost to me. Unfortunately, we live on a Caribbean island with no authorized service techs. We ordered the washer from Lowes in Florida and had it shipped here.

    That being the case, Whirlpool will not provide the replacement controller to me to install myself. She checked with supervisors twice during our conversation. I guess I'm up the creek! The part is available from for $188, plus shipping, plus customs duties--probably $350 in all. Dang!

I have the same F1 error that many owners are having!!After reading some comments on here I called Whirlpool and spoke with customer service and luckily spoke with a very nice lady who has me scheduled for a repair on 10/01/2008...FREE OF CHARGE!!!!! I said I'm probably the millionth person to have this problem and I asked if there is a recall...Of course she said at this time we are not calling it a recall but will fix it for free even though it's out of warranty..Hello!!!!! They need to have a recall and quit beating around the bush.I assume as long as there is no recall then they hope people will just call a local repairman and pay to have it fixed.I bought this washer discounted at Lowe's as they already had a control board replaced when it was brand new.Whirlpool IS AWARE!!!!!! Do what I did and call them at 1-800-253-1301 cust. ser. dept. I hope this relieves some aggravation anyone may be feeling.

Maytag Bravos error code f1

F1 is a very bad error unfortunately. Try unplugging the unit 60 seconds to see if it will reset the control board. If not, then you will need a new relay control board which is about $200, because F1 means that the board has detected an internal short inside the control board itself.

It has an F1 error code. It will start the water flow for about 2 seconds. Stops and beeps f1 on the screen. I hit the stop button and start again and have to repeat this 3 times before the wash machine...

The manufacturer has issued a remedy for the F-1. What you do is empty the machine of water and unplug it. Open the control panel and remove the pressure hose. Blow out the hose to remove sediment . Re secure it to the control and retry. No parts needed. F-1 Error infothemobilian_1223.jpg

F1 error code on Kenmore Oasis He

I think there might be a recall on your washer call to see. I am not for sure that there is a recall but I a m pretty sure there is. So don't quote me on that. the f1 error code usually means that you have a bad board. f1 means that your pressure switch line is failing and this is all in your board. check your owners manual if whirlpool is not going to pay for this repair sometimes there are extended warranties in your manual
