Whirlpool Duet Sport F 1 Error Code on Dryer

The Whirlpool Duet Sport Dryer comes with a set of eight error codes used for diagnostics and repair. When the "F-1" error appears on the dryer, you will need to call for service to have parts replaced.

Identification

The dryer stops mid-cycle, beeps a few times and the "F-1" error flashes across the LCD screen. Press "Start" and "Stop" to temporarily clear the error code.

Effects

The "F-1" error code means a failure occurred with the electronic controls.. This could mean that wires are broken, the electronics shorted out or a manufacturer's default error shut the washer down.

Prevention/Solution

The electronic control panel needs replacement. Find your dryer serial number and search for the part online. This is a lengthy job that usually requires a repairman unless you have dealt with and repaired dryers before.

Considerations

If your dryer was purchased within the past couple of years, the dryer could be covered under the warranty. Visit the Whirlpool customer service page for more information.
