I have a Kenmore Elite washing machine. Every time I start it, it stops and an f1 error is displayed. I have to stop and start it several times to get it through the cycle. How can I fix it?

This problem also occurs during mid cycle.

  1. A model number always helps get the most accurate information. On some models the F1 error indicates a Primary Control failure. Most times you will need to replace the primary control to fix this problem. If you can post a model number I can likely offer more information about the error and any repair options you might have.
