F1 Pressure Signal Out-of-Range
F then 1 flashes when the control detects an out of range pressure signal.
➔ Check pressure hose connection from tub to machine/motor control.
Is hose pinched or kinked?
➔ If F then 1 repeats numerous times after POWER is pressed
and the pressure hose connection is not pinched or kinked,
replace the machine/motor control.

Reg, control shows F1, not F then 1. I may have read the tech sheet wrong, do you have a copy? Did not notice any problems with the pressure hose, also tub was empty and only small amuont of water came in before failure code. Customer says she can get it to start occasionally by pushing start repeatedly.

What you are describing is almost always a bad control module, (I've never had it be any thing but a control module on the 3 or 4 that I have seen and worked on).

Whirlpool put out a tech bulletin on this F1 problem, (October 2008 L8178767).

Models: WTW6200S, WTW6300S, WTW6400S, WTW6600S, WTW6700T,

MTW6300T, MTW6400T, MTW6500T, MTW6600T, MTW6700T

Serial # range: CT01 - CU52

The bulletin basically says to check every thing to do with the pressure hose for moisture in the hose, holes in hose or kinked hose and to check the air bell for lint or any other debris.

And then last step if all checks OK, REPLACE THE CONTROL MODULE.
