SOURCE: My Whirlpool Duet Washer, model number WFW9400SW01 will not turn on. The button lock is off and does light up indicating power to the front panel/unit. Any ideas?

I had the same problem. Inside the door there is a little black button that sends a signal to the panel telling it that the door is closed so that it will allow the washer to start. Mine broke off. I did my own fix it by using foil to fill the hole holding the button in permanently, then taped it. I will eventually get some superglue and glue the black piece back on. But my washer is working again. ( This was only discovered after I took it all apart, because i thought it was in the "start" button.

SOURCE: start button not working on whirlpool cabrio

It sounds like your thermal fuse is out. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter, make sure your dryer is unplugged first! Or you can take the wires off the thermal fuse and use electrical tape to tape them together to see if it will come on.
CLICK HERE for the TECH SHEET on your washer... and HERE to see the thermal fuse.

Sometimes the plastic start button can break a little tab off the back as well, so check it as well.

SOURCE: whirlpool cabrio washer keeps flashing code 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.

My washer ( Whirlpool Cabrio M: WTW6500WW) will not start, cancel, rinse nothing! I can't even properly diagnose it because every button I press gives me an error chirp?


it sounds like you have a bad touch pad,try unplugging the machine for a few minutes to see if it resets the board,i would call the factory on this,they've been having problems with this and they might give you the part for free but you'll have to pay for the labor.

I hit power button then start start light flashes and wont start


If your start button is flashing even when you hit your start button . Your electronic touch control board (ETC) is not working correctly . Either the intergrated curcuit board is not responding or the actuator on touch panel is broken . Push start button in and see if the button makes a clicking noise. If it does replace curcuit board , if it does't replace the part where you touch.

Washer won't start


If unplugging the washer for a few minutes does not reset the main control then the electronic control board is likely shot but the only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance.

Push start button on control panel - machine does not start


only 2 things can cause this.
1 the control is set to lock out mode. just hold the lock button for 5 seconds and it should go back to normal mode.
or 2 the controls user interface has an internal failure. its the part that has the switches and tells the computer what to do. either way call whirlpool and see if its still covered by their warranty.
of yeah and the 3rd thing is you have no power to unit. make sure the outlet is good by trying something else in the same outlet, like a light or hairdryer.

Whirlpool cabrio top loader,always having to "reset" 2 times 1 cy


Hi Curtis: File a class-action suit against the Whirlpool company. There is something wrong with the electronic module that tells the washer to shut down during the rinse cycle.
If you pause, lift the lid, pour in about 3 gallons of water into the tub, close the lid, push start, the washer should continue without having to wear out your fingers pushing the buttons. The buttons will eventually be pushed down into the control panel and you will have to use a pencil to reach them.
Also helps to have a nice cool bottle of regular beer (not the light stuff) before you start the load, the washing duty will work out much smoother. Good Luck.
