Customer Question

Our Whirlpool sport duet dryer is showing F1 when we try to start

This most always indicates a failure of the main control board that is on the left side under the top in many cases. F1 simply indicates a board failure- not exactly which board though. Part#w10111606 is the main.

There are indeed several boards on this dryer in the console, but I have never had any failures of any but the one I mentioned. Repairclinic.com allows parts ro be returned, so you may want the peace of mind in case yours turns out to be the rare case of a problem in another board.

is this something we can fix on our own?
Expert:  MRANSWER replied 1 year ago.

Yes, it takes 5 minutes to take off the top and change the control. Very easy.
