Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

Unfortunately the F1 error code on the duet models means the main board has failed and will need to be replaced if it will not reset, you can unplug the dryer for a few minutes plug it back up and try and start a cycle if it still gives you the F1 error the board has failed. If you give me the model number of the dryer I can give you the replacement board number and instructions to replace it. Thanks.
