Same problem with the F50 code. Did all the research/diagnostics. After much debate on whether to replace the whole machine or try and fix it, we ordered the control board (part #W10189966) for $155. on-line, and it worked perfectly!!!! Don't waste your time on the RPS kit. And us old-timers installed the part ourselves within 20 minutes so no need for a repairman (3 screws and 1 bolt). Happy Days!

It has a faulty control board. sorry but this a bad part from the factory. There is class action lawsuit against whirlpool about it. Call and complain and then maybe they will pay to fix it.

I also have this cabrio washer. When I got the f50 code they had to replace the Central Control Unit (part #W10189966 $186) and the RPS Sensor Kit (Part #W10183157 $100). Not to mention the service call $59.75 and the labor $104.75. After complaining to Whirlpool they covered the parts.

I keep getting the F50 code and I also got the SD code a couple of times. I followed the manuals directions and pressed pause/cancel and it still came back. We also unplugged the washer for about 30...


The "Sd" or Suds Detected error means that you used too much detergent. Reduce the amount of detergent that you use, and properly measure it.
When you receive the "F50" code, it means that the motor position sensor does not sense that the basket is moving. Remove any remaining packing material from the tub.

Hope this helps.. :)

My Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6400SW2 has a F50 error. I


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 - 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...
