What is an F7 E1 Error Code on a Front Load Washer

F7 E1 Error Code on your Whirlpool Front Load Washer

This code indicates a motor speed sensing error, the motor can not achieve the correct speed for the cycle selection.

Have the shipping bolts been removed?

This error code indicates that the motor is having difficulty turning.

All four (4) shipping bolts and the plastic spacers must be removed from the rear of the washer before you operate it. Each unit is shipped from the factory with four bolts, which are designed to secure the washer during shipping. Failure to remove all of the shipping bolts, and the four plastic spacers that are with them, can result in noise, vibration or error codes. See your Installation Instructions for details on how to remove the shipping bolts.
