    I have f50 code. What can I do to reset without calling service?

  • mark_eanes Feb 04, 2008

    We ended up calling Whirlpool. It wasn't the motor, ("they rarely have a problem with the motor"). It was the computer board, (the computer in these washers are kinda temperamental"), and the RPS sensor, "just in case" It was no longer under warranty, just expired(!!!) ,but we complained and they are paying for everything. I have heard from a lot of dissatisfied customers, mostly b/c the damage it does to the clothes. Especially hoodies and the like. Hope this helps

SOURCE: Whirlpool Cabrio code F50

I have the same problem with my Whirlpool Cabrio. This morning it flashed F50 and now it won't spin. Called Whirlpool and they say the code refers to an electrical issue and that's all they said. Obviously there is an issue with this washer that many others have experienced. Whirlpool should look into this and consider it a recall issue.

SOURCE: My kenmore elite oasis washer model # 110.2703 shows code F-50

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 whirlpool cabrio washer, is flashing F then 50. It will start back for a second then stop and start flashing that again. What can I do? WTW6300SW


The F50 error code is a stalled motor error.There is a part called a "Rotor Position Sensor" that sees the motor running.This error will display if it does not see motor movement during a cycle.You want to make sure that the spin basket turn freely.Turn the basket by hand and it should turn freely.If it does not turn freely then it could cause the F50 error.If the basket turns freely then the problem is most likely the main control or the Rotor Position Sensor has failed.I recommend having a technician to
check this problem.

F 50 code after just having faulty circuit board replaced


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.

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.
