Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
Our washer gets an "F1" error message when it's got 17 minutes remaining in the complete cycle. any ideas?
I purchased a Kenmore HE2t (produced by Whirlpool) as soon as I powered the unit up I received an F01 code. I contacted sears service who instructed me to unplug the unit and wait 5 minutes, then reconnect. This cleared the unit until my forth wash load in which it simply locked up with an F01 code. I called for service - two weeks until they can schedule (rural Canada), and if it's the control board Part# W10201186 another 2 to 4 weeks for availablity. This is a washer that is only one week old with 3 loads gone through it. Whirlpool needs to admit fault with it's components and admit the need for a recall. I've told sears that 4 weeks for a repair to a one week old washer is unacceptable and I want a refund or exchange - be assured I will research the replacement Kenmore product to ensure it's not a Whirlpool. (The contract service tech for Sears admitted that the HE series are prone to control board failures, especially in rural areas (power quality related?). Unacceptable for a $950.00 washer (Cdn).
The following list of codes indicates a possible electronics communication problem with the washer:
Cabrio washer - F1, F2, F40, F41, F42, F50, F51, F52, F53, F54, F72
To remove the error display, press Pause/Cancel twice.

The only board that works is W10201186 as mentioned, current service flashes show a old board part number. Comment by guest that part W10189966 was ordered might give a oL code because the pressure sensor on the board is faulty causing a overload at the motor exceeding 26 amps.

We have a Kenmore Elite Oasis HE, we have been having problems where the electronics will not even let us select anything or start the Washer. The stock control panel was a W10112112, I ordered the replacement from Sears and they sent me a Replacement Control Panel W10189966 - I installed this last night and it would not work, kept flashing F2. We spent almost 2K on the Washer/Dryer at Sears and they are junk. Any ideas on how to fix this?
