Question about Whirlpool WTW6600SW Top Load

Whirlpool Cabrio Washer

I purchased a Whirlpool Cabrio washer in March of 2007. At the start of a RINSE AND SPIN cycle it threw a F50 code. I have followed the Diagnostic Guide for the washer and the Diagnostic Manual: Motor section shows the Wash, Rinse and Spin lights flashing as I manually rotate the basket, implying the RPS (Rotor Position Sensor) is working, yet I still get F50 or F51 when start RINSE AND SPIN. I then tried TROUBLESHOOTING TESTS, TEST #3 Motor Circuit. The P5 connector pins check out at 31.4 ohm, not 16 ohms as per the wiring diagram specs. The P10 connector checks out at infinity, not 600-21.2k ohms. The lower wiring harness has connectivity through all P5 and P10 pins. I snapped the P5 connector on and off the RPS a dozen times to clear any corrosion to no avail. Any idea what is wrong?

The F50 error code indicates that the RPS (rotor position sensor) detects no motor rotation. Check to see if the basket spins freely. If not, you could have an item caught between the outer tub and the inner spin basket. A toy or other item underneath the washer could also prevent the basket from spinning and would result in this F50 code.

If the basket spins freely, you could have a wiring failure that would prevent the motor from spinning.

Washer won't start spin cycle, error f50


The F50 error on the Whirlpool Cabrio / Kenmore Oasis points to the basket and possibly some obstruction keeping it from turning freely.

Please see the following PDF Service Manual for the Whirlpool.

Washer whirlpool cabrio message code f50,washer


F50 - This is a motor stalled failure. If this persists you will eventually need to call in a service engineer to repair it as the machine will eventually stop working altogether.

Whirlpool Cabrio code F50


I also had an F50 code on my Cabrio top load washer. Went through all the diagnostics, removed the tub, checked the motor, etc. After a lot of research, purchased a new control board (part #W10189966) and....it works even better than before....no more noise and spins perfectly. Very easy to install (3 screws and one bolt.) Please don't waste your time (like we did) checking all these other areas of the machine. The part was $155. (google it for best price new) and worth it if it will last another year or more...
