Question about Whirlpool WTW6600SW Top Load
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.
