Will the water control valve be the problem with f1 code ? If you reset 2 or 3 times it will start working but then you have to do the same at rinse cycle 21 mins left in wash cycle.
Answer Hi Gary. A common problem for the f1 code is only a bad connection on the motor position sensor. Tip the washer up and remove the motor magnetic field only one bolt, allen wrench, 4 more 9mm bolts and the motor armature will come out be careful not to let it fall to the floor. You will see a small circuit board with a half dozen or so brown wires going to it, remove the connector and clean the contacts, use a q tip with alcohol. This type of connector loses a good contact over time from vibrations causing low voltage. There are four areas of concern that can cause the F1 Error Code. Each area must be sequentially addressed to ensure that the diagnosis is correct and the proper repair is completed. A) Air leaks in the air pressure (switch/sensor) hose. a. Inspect the hose for cracks, pin-holes or loose connection. b. Replace the hose and harness assembly (W10058730) if it is compromised. B) Moisture in the air pressure (switch/sensor) hose. a. Inspect the hose for evidence of water. b. Replace the hose and harness assembly (W10058730) if water is detected. C) Lint or flashing in the air dome hose connection port. a. Inspect the air dome hose connection port for lint or flashing.b. Use a small round device (small screwdriver) to ensure that there is nothing blocking the air dome outlet on the tub. D) The control needs to be replaced. a. Replace the control only after..... Thank You.
