Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a Whirlpool Cabrio.... WTW6200SWO.Over a year ago under warranty they replaced the control board. Now for months....I am sure it is not related... Mostly it keeps getting out of balance and seems to fill up with water and repeat at that 30-min marker, the final drain and even the initial startup sometimes are out of balance. We struggle with moving the clothes to re-balance and hope it works. It is level NOW, and still has the same problem. Also replaced the top "Damper/Suspension"bushings, didn't fix it.

I own a whirlpool washer model WTW6300SW Cabrio and I am getting an error code F1 and need to know what to do?

The F1 error means that the control board isn't communicating with the rest of the washer. Try unplugging the washer (or flipping off the circuit breaker) for at least 15 minutes to reset the unit.

If the error persists, you probably need the control board replaced. Appliance Parts Pro has the control board here: . When you pull the control board, check the wiring to the other parts of the washer.

Of course, if your washer is under warranty, contact Whirlpool. I hope this helps.

This is a known control board issue with the Cabrio. If your unit still under warranty? If not, you will need to replace the control board. Be sure to purchase it new if you need to replace it so you can get a warranty on it. Here is the control board to order.

The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return.

New whirlpool wtw6500ww cabrio washer has overflowed with water every load I ran today. What am I doing wrong? It ran over with every size load.

There is a clear hose that goes from the tub to the pressure sensor on the control board. It tells the washer when to shut off the water. It is probably either punctured or disconnected, or the pressure switch needs to be replaced. If it's new its probably still under warranty and you should have whirlpool fix it.

Your controller board is dead. If it's under warranty, you'll have to contact Whirlpool for a replacement.

Hi! Can you help me decide if the Kenmore oasis 3.8pc is a good washing machine.

The Kenmore Oasis is made by Whirlpool for Sears. It is the same as the Whirlpool Cabrio. The Cabrio and the Oasis had a problem with the computer board. Whirlpool has been replacing the computer boards under a recall(mine was replaced recently). But I believe it is the model with no agitator in it. The one your talking about I believe is the one with the agitator. Whirlpool makes a good product. I would stay away from Maytag. Besides the recall problem I have had mine for over 2 years and it has worked fine. But I did get the extended warranty with it due to all the sensors and computer board can make repairs expensive.I have not had to use the extended warranty yet. My previous Kenmore washer was 12 years old and stopped working due to a rat chewed thru all the wiring and hoses. It would have cost me more to repair than what it was worth so I purchased the Cabrio.

I have the exact same F1 code problem

Primary Control Failure
then 1 flashes when there is a primary control failure. Replace the machine control assembly.

This was under recall last year.

Telephone Whirlpool at 1-800-253-1301. Whirlpool has acknowledged the F1 fault and will send a serviceman, free parts and labor, to correct the problem concerning the "famous" F1 fault. This is even for washers out of warranty! This concerns model WTW6600 series washers.

Tell them that your Whirlpool Cabrio washer has been receiving the F1 error code repeatedly, with the same symptoms as reported by hundreds of other customers online. You were told that there is a recall for this known defect in the control board, and are requesting that Whirlpool fix the problem including parts & labor.

Be sure to get the authorization code from them so the service person cannot argue about costs.

Basically - this is a problem (faulty chip) on the main controller board of the unit... and the entire board must be replaced with the updated version.

Give the warranty a try (even if it is out of warranty)

What causes Cabrio washer to get unbalanced in spin cycle?

Try making sure that your draining hose isnt jammed all the way down the hole. When you installed it the u shaped accessory was needed for the draining hose. Try pulling the draining hose out...curve the front and zip tying it to your cold water valve. This will allow it to drain properly and not get water push back into the drum causing it to be unlevel

We are getting the F1 error code also. Is it the circuit board??

I have the same overpriced piece of junk and have the f-1 code also . It means you have a primary control failure . Also known as the computer brain module . It cost anywhere from 165.00 -400.00 depending on where you buy it . It will only gets better ,sometimes I get an f-51 code which is a motor rotor sensor failure but could be a false code because somehow this thing will **** clothing under the drum and cause drain problems as well as floods . I got the service manual offline for the repairs , but you may also complain to whirlpool because they are aware of the problem and they may send a repairmen even if its out of warranty . Best bet don`t buy anymore whirlpool junk

Washer does not spin

I had the same problem in october- my had a bad wiring harness, some board problem, and a bad sensor. if it hadn't been under warranty the cost of parts alone would have been over 1000bucks.
