Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

F1 is a very bad error code for a model number unfortunately. It means that your main relay control board in the back right corner under the control panel needs to be ordered and replaced to fix the issue. Sometimes unplugging the washer will reset the error for a few cycles so you might want to try that if you need temporary use, but if that doesn't work, replace the control board. Below is a link to the part you'd need to order as well as a link to a video that shows you how to replace the part.
