Cabrio Washer Error F5E1


The Cabrio Washer F5E1 error code means the lid switch is in a locked state but the lid switch is open.

  1. This error can happen if for some reason the start button wash pushed with the lid raised.
  2. This can also happen if the control can’t tell if the lock assembly is in the locked or unlocked state and usually means the lock assembly has failed and needs replacing, in some cases the control board can be at fault.
  3. There are some diagnostic steps you can take with an ohm/volt meter to figure out the issue, if you need help with this error let us know.
  4. If you don’t have access to an ohmmeter or don’t know how to use one just replace the door lock assembly because that is normally what causes this error. The door lock assembly for these models is linked below.
