SOURCE: 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.

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 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 cabrio wtw6200sw2 has F50 code and won't spin I can't seem to find out what the code means. Could it be the motor coupler or controller board?


The F50 code for the Whirlpool Cabrio is most commonly a Motor Control Board failure.

Motor Stalled
F then 50 flashes when the motor rotor position sensor (RPS) senses no rotation.
? Does basket turn freely? If not, make sure bottom shipping pack has been removed. Determine cause of friction.
? If basket turns freely, see TEST #3, page 4 of the Diagnostics and Repair manual.

The Diagnostics and Repair manual can be downloaded as a PDF document file here:
http://www.mediafire.com/?np4yufblj33c0xm

DIAGNOSTIC TESTS
There are three diagnostic test modes available: Automatic, Manual and Console. These tests allow the factory or service personnel to test and verify all inputs to the machine/motor control. You may want to allow the automatic test cycle to complete prior to going into specific troubleshooting tests.

ACTIVATION OF AUTOMATIC DIAGNOSTIC TEST MODE
  1. Be sure the washer is in standby mode (plugged in with all indicators off; or with only the Clothes Clean or Done indicator on).
  2. Select any one button (except POWER, START, STOP and PAUSE/CANCEL) and follow the steps below, using the same button (remember the button):
  • Press/hold 3 seconds.
  • Release for 3 seconds.
  • Press/hold 3 seconds.
  • Release for 3 seconds.
  • Press/hold 3 seconds.
  • If this test mode has been entered successfully, all indicators on the console are illuminated for 5 seconds with 88 showing in the Estimated Time Remaining two-digit display.
  • If indicators do not display as described above, the press/hold/release procedure above may not have been performed within the time frame necessary for successful entry. Repeat step 2 to ensure this was not the cause.
  • If still unsuccessful, see Diagnostic: Unsuccessful Entry.
  1. The program then checks for saved fault codes:
? If there are no saved fault codes, all indicators on the console will momentarily turn off, then
turn back on with 88 displayed. After 5 seconds, the Automatic test, below, begins.

DIAGNOSTIC: Automatic
Performs a five-minute automatic test with water functions to check major washer functions (door can be open). Press the same button used in step 2 above to advance through automatic test steps.

NOTE: Basket must be floating in order to agitate.

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...
