what does f-1 mean and how to I get rid of it. maytag washer series 2000
My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be helping you today. Can you get me the complete model number off of the machine please?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
does this number sound right? (NNN) NNN-NNNN4619(NNN) NNN-NNNN3
No, it should start with 2 or 3 letters followed by 3 or 4 numbers and more letters. Is this a front load or top load washer?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
front load
where should I find the number? I can't find the paperwork
If you open the door it should be around the opening of the washer, or on the back of the machine. Also get the serial number too.

3 questions.
1. Could the 4 in your model number be a Y?
2. There should be something else after the F1 code, such as an E1 or E2.
3. At what point in the cycle do you get the error code?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
yes, it is a Y
nothing after the code

towards the end - halfway through rinse cycle
Thank you for the information. An F1 code indicates a bad control board. Below is a link for the board if you want to purchase one. They have a 365 day return policy no matter if you install it or not.
