  1. I need help with this also. It restarts and I’m not sure how far in the cycle it will go.

    1. The only thing you can do is try and reset the electronics by killing power to it at the breaker/fuse panel on your home for one full minute then restore power. If after that the problem persists you will need to replace the main control board as the F01 error on whirlpool washers is a internal failure code for the main control board.
