I previously paid $250 and told the "control" panel was bad. We replaced it and still had the same problem. Put back the original control panel, then cleared the small tube of the obstruction and everything is fine since! Completely wrong evaluation of F01.

Having the washer running is very important. The error codes can be frustrating. I found some information for you that I am hoping will help you out. I am adding the link below to help you with your question while you wait for your expert response. It may take 24-48 hours. I do hope that this will help you with the washer.

Hi David,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.



The model number you gave me does not come up in our system. I will assume you have a MVWB750WQ0.

The F1 fault code on this washer indicates that the water level pressure transducer signal is out of range. The pressure transducer air hose tubing being pinched or crimped can cause this. A failed pressure transducer on the machine control board can also cause it.

The first image below shows the method for accessing the pressure transducer tube that runs from the bottom of the washer tub to the machine control. I recommend checking this air hose for pinches, twists or crimps.

NOTE: Be sure to unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components

. If the pressure hose is blocked you should be able to blow through it to clear it.

If you find no problems with the pressure transducer tube, then the machine control board will need to be replaced. The procedure for accessing and replacing the machine control board is shown in the second image below. The part number for the machine control board is W10253697.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website;

Sears Home Services

.

Here is a link that you may use to view the parts list diagram or purchase any parts needed for your appliance;

Sears Parts Direct

.

I hope this is helpful. Check the things I have covered here and if I may be of further assistance please reply to this post.
