Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

Is there an E number that appears after the F1? If not, then F1 is a very straight forward error which means that your main control board has failed inside the control panel and would need to be ordered and replaced. This is an EEPROM error and the logic in the board is corrupted. Below is a link to the board you'd need to order for your model.
