    1. In most cases that error is caused by friction on the drive system which means the shaft is probably corroded and not allowing the tub to float up and down on the shaft properly. You need to replace the shaft and bearing on the washer.
      How To Replace The Tub Seal, Bearing And Shaft

      First you will need to order a special bearing tool and the parts so everything you need is listed below. Click the image below to order parts.

      The video below shows how to make the repair.

    Will it cost too much to fix? Or what will it cost for each, I think one is for the board? Will cost a lot or get a new one?

    1. First, try and tighten the bolt in the bottom of the rotor. If that does not help and the tub spins freely by hand then either the bearing is shot or the RPS sensor is bad. Either can be repaired for less than 200.00 if you do the work yourself. If you plan on having to pay someone then just buy a new one.

    1. The dr Error Code indicates that the washer has run for 3 cycles in a row without the door being opened. To remove the code, open and close the door and the error code should clear. If the problem continues even after the door has been opened the lid lock assembly needs to be replaced. The lid lock for your model is linked below:

  2. My washer had had code LF for while now, my son used the washer I think he overload it since he used it. I keep getting a LF it drains then shuts off so now I can barely put anything in the washer to make it go the full cycle and when it does a standard small size it takes over a hour sometimes 2 hours to wash. HELP!!!!! im not sure if I got warranty on it. i got it in 2016/2017

  3. I dont know the year but its whirlpool cabrio
    Is whirlpool
    Type 580
    If was orginally f1 code and only came when trying fill with water in cycle. I could press pause and restart an keep going. It throws a dl code now and constantly and f code especially filling water an it wont work. Ive tried the pause an reset but it wont keep going with the cycle.
    How can I fix this?

    1. Unfortunately The problems you are having are caused by failure of the main board. It was failing when it was first displaying the f1 error code although you manually manipulating it forced it to continue on through the cycle worked for a while but now it has completely failed and will have to be replaced. The board you need to replace is listed below:

      Here is a video that shows how to change it:
