    I ignored this problem on several different occasions. It didn't completely stop working till now. I get the F 50 flashing and no spinning. It almost did once when we were trying but then stopped and flashed the F50 again. Is there any cost effective way to do this on our own or should be begin searching the classifieds for cheap ones to replace. Budgets are tight right now as everyone feels the pinch.

Ya the F 50 code. I'm getting it too. open the that top control piece by taking a quarter inch nut driver and there are 3 screws in the back. You need an ohmmeter to check the resistance on the motor and the rps sensor. If you dont know how to use an ohmmeter then u probably wont benifit from this. There are 3 wires yellow red and blue. You need to see what you get between those. it needs to be 16 ohms if it is not then the motor might be bad. also check the resistance on the 6 brown wires if there is none between the brown on each end of the harness then the rps might be bad. i would recommend doing that and then calling whirlpool 1-800-253-1301. Thats what im going to do. Im getting 30.6 ohms on the motor and none on the rps sensor. so i figure one of them is bad or both of them are bad.and if it costs over 150 to fix then i will probably recommend it a total loss.

F 50 error code on whirlpool cabrio washer


Simple solution-- needs a new control pane. I just had to deal with the F50 code on a 4 year old Cabrio Wtw6200 model. Did diagnostics, it spun freely but took out the tub just to check, check all circuit plugs as suggested, etc,....At the point of deciding whether to junk it ($600 in 4 years) or gamble for a control board costing $155. and non-refundable if it didn't work. Went for the control panel (part #W10189966). took my husband and I about 25 minutes to replace, and it worked! Spins, no error codes, and even fixed the loud noise it used to have! Wish someone would have told us..... please don't waste your time on a repairman or other solutions...

Whirlpool Cabrio F50 Error


Most likely the RPS sensor or the control board. Originally they had trouble with the RPS sensors.

F50 Error Code on Whirlpool Cabrio Washer


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.

F50 error code and Whirlpool Cabrio


this code would indicate rps sensor at motor. whirlpools are very bad with electronics and control boards. New rps sensor requires new harness as well.

CODE F 50


most likely connection to motor sensor on bottom.. just behind the motor rotor the connection is probably not making good contact with sensor connection
