Whirlpool Cabrio Washer Error message code F1

Our washer gets an "F1" error message when it's got 17 minutes remaining in the complete cycle. any ideas?

Cliff
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).

    Thanks... none of those solutions will work. The unit upon repower automatically goes to an F01, regardless of the duration left unplugged (2 minutes or 2 days).

    Hii,

    I have had the same problem, however it took 1.5 years before it happened. Part W10201186 is back ordered for another month. I have already waited 1 month. We found on line a replacement part of W10189966 that I just ordered.

    F1 code when the washer (cabrio he) locks the top load door. Not a power supply problem.

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.
PLACEHOLDER FOR ART
If Pause/Cancel does not work:

  1. Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
  2. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, call for service.

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?

Whirlpool Cabrio top loading washer F1 Error


F1 means the control board is shot. Call whirlpool and they should take care of the parts and labor even though your machine is out of warranty.

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.

Whirlpool did a recall on this problem here is there number try this first. Whirlpool 1-800-253-1301
On a number of ranges this can mean a number of things, the most common being a failed ERC(EOC, Clock assembly)or a faulty touchpad. Firstly if you are using a recent Maytag range it may pay to test the oven sensor as described above as this may cause an F1 error if faulty (may apply to some other ranges as well) this is not a common cause but is worth discounting. To check the ERC and touchpad
  1. Disconnect the power
  2. Gain access to the back of the ERC
  3. Disconnect the ribbon cable that connects the ERC to the touchpad
  4. Check nothing will short when power is reconnected
  5. reconnect the power and switch on
  6. Watch for F1 and listen for the beep
  7. If you get the F1 and the beep this means the fault is with the ERC and it will need replacing
  8. If after 30 mins you do not see the F1 error and hear the beep, replace the touchpad

WRONG POWDER'S, TO MANY POWDERS IN PUMP PUT ONE TEASPOON OF OIL IN WHERE THE POWDERS SHOULD GO AND RUN CYCLE AND THAT WILL DESROY THEY SUDS AND ONLY USE HIGH EFF DETRG. FROM NOW ON, IF THAT DONT FIX PROBL YOU HAVE SOMETHING STUCK IN YOUR PUMP, YOU WILL HAVE TO HAVE TECH TO TAKE YOUR FRONT OFF MACHINE AND GO INTO PUMP WHICH IS EASY AND REMOVE ITEM, PROBL SOCK, OR UNDYS. I HAD THIS PROBL WITH MINE.
