Question about Whirlpool WTW6400SW Top Load Washer

1 Answer

My Cabrio washer was flashing the F50 code and we replaced the control board (paid for by Whirlpool). After we washed one load of clothes, the washer will not turn back on. What's the problem????? I have unplugged it and have also checked our circuit breakers. No problems there. I also plugged it into a different outlet thinking that might be the problem. No such luck. Help!!!

F-50 or F-51 is the RPS sensor failiure or clothes stuck in between tubs. don"t overload it with small clothes. Sensor has been redesigned and whirpool released repair that it won"t happen again. F1 on begining cycle is pressure sensor which also have been updated but 99% of people are at fault themselfs cause they use regular detergent instead of HE. also, cleaning it once a month is a must......with washing machine cleaner like affresh....

Hello. I have a 07 whirlpool cabrio top load washer that is showing F50 error code. Can you tell what this indicates? Thanks in advance.


That error points to the motor control board.You need to replace the motor control board to fix that problem.

My Whirlpool Cabrio 6600sw2 has lots of problems, it stops and flashes F50 over and over again, it also flashes many of the other codes, it doesn't fill with enough water and it is not washing the clothes...


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.

F50 - This is a motor stalled failure. If this persists you will eventually need to call in a service engineer to repair it as the machine will eventually stop working altogether.

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

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...

F50 error code and Whirlpool Cabrio


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.
