What youll need to do is take off the top cover and remove the control. There are 3 screws in the back 1/4 inch nut driver will be needed if u dont have u might get it off with a phillips. Also you will need an ohmmeter to check the continuity in the motor windings and the RPS sensor motor rotor position sensor. I think ur main drive (part of motor) is probably bad so take one probe between the 3 set of wires. there are red blue and yellow and u need to see what u get. if you are getting 16 between each, the motor is good. then there are 6 brown wires check the resistance on all of them but i believe you need to know the resistance on the two on each end. There might be no resistance there which i believe would mean the rps could be bad. What im getting now is that the motor is giving me 30.6 ohms and i am not getting continuity at all on the rps. I believe the motor is out on it and also the rps but I'm not really sure 100 percent right now I cant contact whirlpool cause its sunday. But tomororrow im going to figure it out for sure. It either needs the rps or the main drive or both. But once you have that part figured out you should be able to figure it out through whirlpool. But it probably will not be cheap if it's the main drive. I'm figuring anywhere from a 60 dollar fix to a 200 dollar fix. But thats cheaper than 610 that a repair man is going to want.

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...

I had two Whirlpool cabrio washers give me the f50 last week.
I had to replace the control board in both of them to get them working again.
I looked up your model number and the control board is part # W10189966

I have a Whirlpool Cabrio Model #WTW6200SW0 A F51 code keeps coming up. I would like to know what that means and what part i need to fix it. My husband does all the repairs on our appliances. Thank You.


well the code means that the tachometer or Rps sensor has detected a spinning problem but i would first push in the top clips on the right and left front corners about an inch in on the front and hinge back top lid remove top plastic cap ring of washer and check for stuck clothing between innertub and outer tub sometimes you will have to remove tub to get all clothes out remove center dome agitator center cap and remove 7/16 bolt pull agitator out the pull inner tub out then extract clothes be very carefull these stainless tubs are very sharp and will cut your hand like a cheese grader

My whirlpool cabrio washer, is flashing F then 50. It will start back for a second then stop and start flashing that again. What can I do? WTW6300SW


The F50 error code is a stalled motor error.There is a part called a "Rotor Position Sensor" that sees the motor running.This error will display if it does not see motor movement during a cycle.You want to make sure that the spin basket turn freely.Turn the basket by hand and it should turn freely.If it does not turn freely then it could cause the F50 error.If the basket turns freely then the problem is most likely the main control or the Rotor Position Sensor has failed.I recommend having a technician to
check this problem.

Sounds like a motor problem , F is for fault often a number with it , this is a fault code , refer to your hand book for explanation of these.

Need to know what 50 means --washer keeps beeping after tub fills


Please see the following Whirlpool Service Manual for their Cabrio Washer (Basically the same as the Kenmore Oasis)

50 points to an obstruction keeping the basket drum from turning freely.

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.
