Hello,


Welcome to FixYa.


Based on your description I'd first suggest you look up your warranty coverage in the owners manual to see what degree of warranty the control is covered. I say that because according to Whirlpool, this is the definition of the "F1" error code:


Primary Control Failure

"F then 1 flashes when there is a primary control failure. Replace the machine control assembly. i.e.

washer has a code that comes up saying F1 - macmarkus_460.jpg

Let me know if I can help move you forward in an many and I''ll certainly do what I can.


**You may also want to look into recalls on those control boards as well as many of them where recalled in the last year or two...you'll need to phone the manufacturer and present the model and serial number of your machine.**

Thank you for choosing FixYa today sand good luck. Please take a second to rate the info provided here for you today.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

into the front console. If visual check passes, replace the user interface assembly.
2. Plug in washer or reconnect power.

To Access/replace the CCU:

#1

Unplug the Whirlpool Cabrio power cord from the wall outlet. Turn off the water supply to the washing machine. Pull the washer away from the wall so that you can access the screws behind the control console. Remove the hex head screws securing the control console to the washer with a nut driver. The screws are on the lower rear edge of the control console.
#2

Lift the control console up, and rotate the console forward so that the face of the console is resting on the top of the washer. Locate the interface board cable connector to the right of the plastic tube on the back of the console. Pull the end of the connector straight out of the control console. The primary machine control is the box that the plastic tube connects.
#3

Place small pieces of masking tape around the nine wires connecting to the primary machine console. Label the wire locations onto the masking tape with a pencil. Grasp each wire at the connector with your fingers, and pull the wires away from the primary control. Pull the plastic tube out of the primary control.
#4

Locate the nut toward the bottom of the primary control. Remove the nut with a nut driver. Lift the front of the primary control slightly, and slide it down to disengage the retaining clips. Pull the primary control out of the control console. Insert the new primary control into the control console. Slide the primary control up to engage the lower clips. Secure the primary control to the console with the single hex head screw.
#5

Push each of the wire connectors into their respective positions on the primary control until they lock into place. Push the plastic tube hose over the port on the right side of the primary control. Remove the small pieces of masking tape from the wires.
#6

Position the control console back upright on the top of the washer. Secure the control console to the washer with the three hex head retaining screws. Slide the washer back against the wall. Turn on the water supply and plug the washer into the wall outlet.

    My AQGMD149 washer-dryer has a fault code F 1 and says the machine is blocked


    The fault code F1 (or F01) is a Motor/triac fault. The triac is a device for controlling the relatively high currents required by the washing machine motor from the low power chips etc on the main Printed Circuit Board (PCB). Either the motor or triac has a short circuit condition. Check connectors on motor and main PCB card making sure they are sound and not lose. If the connectors are ok I would replace the triac or power board.

    The f1 code on the Maytag Bravos top loading washer keeps going off and stopping the machine


    Please contact Maytag to inquire about the code F1. They should check the system and that that code is a courtesy repair and should be scheduled for a someone to come out to fix it. FREE
    It is possible that the F1 code was caused by your laundry habits (detergent), but I think that is unlikely. Too many of these machines have problems with the F1 error code. There is a known problem with the Oasis / Cabrio / Bravos machines.

    What does F1 code mean


    A Sublime Master at the Samurai School of Appliantology recently did battle with one of these newfangled Oasis washing machines. The F1 error code was intermittent, which made it impossible to troubleshoot. Turns out there’s a service bulletin out on this problem. Come, feast your bewildered eyeballs on the wisdom of the Masters.

    Hi,

    I was unable to figure out any error which says 1F. I suppose you wanted to say F1.

    Check the fault code status :

    I keep getting an F1 error code on my top load Whirlpool Cabrio HE washer. I do what the manual says to do which is to hit the Pause/cancel buttom and then start....I continue to get the F1 error code for...


    There is a recall for the Cabrio F1 error code issue. I had mine fixed for free. They will have to replace the control board. You will need to call 1-800-253-1301 and tell them that your Cabrio washer is having the F1 error code and you read on the internet that Whirlpool has been making repairs. Have your model number, serial number, and purchase date ready for the person on the phone. The guy that repaired mine also replaced the washboard at the bottom for free...just ask the tech about it when he is there.
