Customer Question

Hi-my whirlpool duet dryer is flashing F01 when I try to start it, what do I do?

Unfortunately F01 is a very straight forward error for this unit. It means that your main relay control board has an internal short inside the board, there is nothing that will fix this problem other than ordering and replacing the control board. To access the part, pull the dryer forward and unplug it. Remove the 3 screws coming in from the back of the top panel and the top panel will pull straight back, up, and off. Now you can see the control board mounted above the drum against the left side wall. The part is all plug and play so if you're handy, you can definitely replace it yourself.We are on the honor system here. Please remember to rate my service before you leave today.
