Whirlpool Duet Sport Dryer Error f-01
« on: August 30, 2010, 08:11:46 AM »

I am getting the code (f-01) on my dryer Model WED8410SW1

Is this the right replacement part for it?

Is control board same as CCU?

Thank you!

Yes, I looked up your model number and the factory part number for the control board is W10111606

The link you posted is the correct part too, but it's a little cheaper here.

I have replaced these boards in the past to repair the F-01 problem.

Well it did not work. Finally installed new part today and it is still giving me the f-01. What else can it be?

  What is your dryer not doing? Have you tested the thermal fuse and thermistor. Sometimes these things will throw out a false error code.

When I press and hold the start button it goes through the “sensing” cycle once it gets to “wet” something inside makes a clicking sound and it gives me the F-01 code.
I replaced the thermal fuse before and that fixed another problem that I was having. Dryer worked fine for a while until I got the F-01 code.

is your code a f-1 or e-1., f-01 is a control board failure problem
