It sounds like it needs new brushes put on the motor or the belt is slack on the back of the machine when it is empty can you turn the drum freely by hand

    Hello Sorry the error is a f05 error, not f50. The model number is 859297015700. I've been told it's a Water temperature sensor error, but i'm not sure quite what that is, or how i fix it ? Thanks for your help Carolina

    i think if you take the botom panel of under the door might be a star screw ,or they might be small bolts when its off you will see in front of you on the right hand side a pump and it has a dial on it so you can unscrew it ,i think you will find when you open it some water will come out but it will be full of muck like coins even socks just clean it all out and screw back in i think that will sort it,turn machine off at the wall plug 1st

SOURCE: 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.

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

SOURCE: error code f50 unit stops and will not do anything

Unfortunately it is not so easy. F50 is the code displayed when the fault persists in the RPS ( Rotatory Position Sensor ). You have to replace it. The problem may be a burnt CU ( Control Board ). It can also be an indication of motor being stalled. Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

JUST SPOKE WITH WHIRLPOOL ABOUT THE F-50 CODE. THEY SAID THAT THEY ARE AWARE OF THE PROBLEM AND THEY ARE PAYING TO FIX IT. ALSO THE CONTROLL BOARD AND THE RPS SENSOR MUST BE REPLACED TO FIX THE PROBLEM. THE OWNER MUST CALL WHIRLPOOL, NOT THE TECH, TO GET THEM TO PAY FOR IT. HOPE THIS HELPS.

Tip mch back and locate the lg allen bolt in the center of the magnet and remove counterclokwise. The motor is actually a large magnet that revolve around a stator, a series of windings. Pull hard and place magnet away from any metal. Once off, remove the bolts holding the stator to the base and on the reverse side is the rps sensor. It looks like a wedge and is clipped onto the stator.

What is code error F50 on my miele W3725 washing machine mean


I have today purchased a Miele 3985 machine with a know F50 Fault code appearing

Before I went to the expense of calling a Miele technician, I explored the blocked / clogged drain path

I removed the drain pipe and noticed there was a lot of 'residue' / gunk in there

I cleaned what I could, and blew through the pipe back into the machine

Then I did a cotton wash cycle at 90degrees, with a 1litre of bleach to clean the drain path

The wash looked extremely dirty during the cycle

It appears that this resolved the F50 fault code issue with my Miele 3985 Navitronic

Keep getting F50 code cannot reset washer


There have been a lot of reports where technicians have been ordering RPS's prior to the common fix for the problem which is the control board. This is a common problem and the control board fixes F50 faults in most cases.

Not spinning and showes error F 50


F50 = Motor Stall Error
The biggest problem with this machine is the rps sensor. If you pull the motor cover you can get to the rps. Then take the rps on and off about 5 times to remove a factory coating that keeps it from making the contact that it needs. For some reason the machine will work fine for several months after purchase before this occurs. After you do this it works fine. F50 f51 f70 codes

ERROR MESSAGE F50


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.

What is f50 error and how to fix it


Hello there
The F50 error code indicates a stalled motor failure. Open the lid & see if the spin basket rotates freely. Look on the floor under the washer to be sure nothing has gotten in the way of the motor rotor. If everything looks good, you will need to have the motor checked with a meter to determine the diagnoses. Usually this type of failure will either be the motor assembly or a control board issue. ere.exe

Washer won't start spin cycle, error f50


The F50 error on the Whirlpool Cabrio / Kenmore Oasis points to the basket and possibly some obstruction keeping it from turning freely.
