Error Code F50

Hi I have the Kenmore ELITE Oasis HE. I am recieving the error code F50 and I would like to try and solve this myself. I saw a post about code F51. Is this in any relation to the F50? And if so how do i access the harness they are talking about.
Much thanks,
Chris

    I'm getting Error Code F51

  • nbaker2005 Sep 14, 2008

    Also received the code 50 fault. Performed the diagnostic tests in auto and manual and machine still would not spin. Performed troubleshooting test #3 and and found nothing wrong. Test procedure then tells you to replace the RPS board. I have just completed that replacement and I can't get it to go into the diagnostic modes or power on. The manual now leads you to T/S test #1. The machine is receiving power because you can hear it cycle a small amount of water into the machine. Both Test #1 and #3 are now telling me replace the motor control assembly. Is this really the problem or am I going to have to purchase something else?

After only 2 years & 2 months I had the F50 code too. I hadn't bought the extended warranty as we were buying 3 big appliances. I figured odds were that all 3 would last at least 5 years & if 1 out of the 3 did break it would be cheaper to buy a new one than having to pay warranties on 3 appliances at the point of sale. Anyway, I seriously considered just buying a brand new washer since this model does seem to have serious issues after I did some research on the internet. It would cost $75 just to have a Sears repairman give an estimate & I knew the parts would be at least $200. I'd rather put that $ toward a new washer. I figured I'd call Sears to complain that even though I didn't have a warranty, this expensive model seemed to have a very poor reputation & maybe they'd help me out. No freebie fix-it offer but I was told that I could buy a 1-year service contract or $215 +tax. I called 888-528-6326 & bought it. A repairman came out & had to order parts so he set up the actual repair for a week later. He was very helpful & pro-active. He replaced the part that was broken & also replaced the entire top circuit panel with an upgraded version. I guess he figured that it would break eventually too. So now I'm covered for the next year...hopefully with the upgraded parts this machine will last a lot longer. If I get another 5 years out of I'll be very happy. It really does do a fantastic job cleaning clothes.

The most common fix is to replace the speed sensor, but sometimes it just need to be clean. but you can try to lay down the washer and take the magnetic motor out and you gonna see the speed sensor connect to the motor, take that out and unplug the wires than cleaning the connections, just do a little scratches at the speed board connection, that should work.
I do that almost every day and I never came back to the same house

I’m still working on my washer so this is not a success story. I was getting the F51 code and I found that the RPS circuit board was burned up (I could clearly see the fried components). I also found two of the wires smashed with the wires exposed, so I taped them up. I ordered a replacement RPS sensor and installed it today. No more F51 code, but now I’m getting a F50 code. So I took everything apart looking for anything that would stop the drum from turning. While I doing so, I found the “Service Manual” in a plastic bag stuck on the front inside wall of the washer. If your not scared to take things apart you’ll want to take a look at this manual. To get it you will need to take off the top cover of the washer (remove the two hinges at the back then pull the top towards you about an inch then raise the top. Don’t break the wire at the back) you should then see the plastic bag with the service manual inside. Hope this saves someone a few hours of troubleshooting. Looks like I've got to replace the motor in my unit.

F50 = Motor Stalled
F51 = RPS Failure
F52 = Motor Stop Failure
F53 = Motor Control Overtemp
F54 = Motor control Overcurrent

My Kenmore Elite Oasis HE is flashing a code "F50", can you tell me what the error code means?


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.

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.

Please see the following PDF Service Manual for the Whirlpool.
