SOURCE: E50 code
i'm sure that e50/e51 is the insulation in the motor breaking down, in which case its usually new motor time i'm afraid.
hope this helps

e50 is a problem relating to the rotation of the motor if the drim will turn by hand you can be sure the motor is at fault ......most likeley the brushes worn out but possibly a new motor

HELLO GARY E50 error is to do with the motor, it can be the motor power supply triac has got a short circuit or there could be no signal from the motor tachometric generator, which will uaually mean a pcb fault, or wiring to motor or even the motor. hope this helps

It was probably your washer that tripped the electric . e50 relates to the motor check the carbon brushes they will be worn out. hopefully with new brushes you will be back in action. the programme wont start with a fault on the motor

Hello Baldur Thor, thanks for your inquiry!
From what you have described your Electrolux air conditioner is displaying an "E50" error code. I do not show an "E50" has a valid error code. Could you please verify which appliance you are having issues with? Additionally, you could perform a reset on your air conditioner which is disconnecting the power from it for ten minutes. If you continue to have issues please reconnect. -Matt

Zanussi washing machines can sometimes display error code E50. As John Lewis washing machines are currently also made by Zanussi some John Lewis washing machines can also display error E50.
Unfortunately this is not a "proper" error code and is not listed in error code lists. It's part of the motor fault error code group and is apparently displayed to customers but when an engineer enters a special diagnostic display the "proper" error code will be displayed giving more information.
However, there are usually only two error codes beginning with E5 which are E51 and E52, which are "motor power triac short circuited" and "no signal from the motor tachometric generator" respectively.
So if you have E50 displayed on a Zanussi or John Lewis washing machine it looks like a problem with the motor. However, the E51 "motor power triac short circuited" could be a fault on one of the PC boards as triacs are usually on printed circuit boards. This could have blown due to a short circuit somewhere else (like the motor for example) - I would advise that an engineer is required if you can't see anything obvious with the motor.
