Whirlpool Cabrio Washer Don't Buy
Whirlpool Cabrio Washer "F1 error" - Complaint
I had this washer for a little over 2 years and I am now dealing with the F1 crap. I called Whirlpool maybe three months ago and they said that there is nothing that they can do with it being out of warranty. I called Whirlpool again after reading some post on this and other sites. The lady that was helping me first said that there is no recall and no issues have been reported on this unit. That's when I told her that I had been online researching this and found numerous people with this issue. Then she put me on hold and comes back and says that, if I would pay half price for the part they would have a tech to come out and look at the washer, then he would tell me what part I need and I was to call back and let them order it for me. It didn't seem like they were going to budge anymore than that so I said fine but I really don't think I should have to pay anything because it is an issue. This has to be a manufacturer defect and should be covered by Whirlpool fully. If you are planning on buying this washer I would say don't because paying more doesn't mean that it will last for ever.
