So F1 means that your main control board has an internal short. The noise could be caused by the control board but it's difficult to say for certain but you may want to run the washer again before replacing the main CCU control board and see if the noise is coming from below the tub down at the drain pump. If so then you may need to replace the drain pump first or try to remove any debris inside the drain pump. If you find the noise is coming from below the washer then that sounds like your drain pump is making the noise and possibly overloaded the control board causing it to short out. There is a drain catch inside the washer that you will want to access and clean if you're getting this drain error. To access the drain catch, tip the machine backwards and lean it against the wall at a 45 degree angle or so. Remove the 3 screws along the bottom of the lower front panel. The lower front panel will then pull down and off. There is a 3" diameter plastic twist cap directly under the tub mounted to the floor. This is your drain cap. Unscrew the cap and clear any debris inside the drain catch. If you find nothing and the drain hose is clear, replace your drain pump.We are on the honor system here.
