Just got off the phone with Whirlpool support. I tried washing a load this morning and got the F1 code shortly after about 10 minutes of washing. I found this site here with the support number and called it. A nice gentleman named "Levi" answered. He found my info on when I purchased it (2007), my name, my address and the Cabrios info, ALL based on my caller ID! Cool! So I told him what happened and he said it was a known "quality control" issue and it would be fixed for free. He scheduled a repair man to come by tomorrow morning to fix it. I'm in the Upstate NY area. Just wanted to say "Thanks!" to all of you that had posted the details of what an "F1" issue was (Main processor board error) and the Whirlpool support line number.
