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.

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.

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.
