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.

I keep getting the F50 code and I also got the SD code a couple of times. I followed the manuals directions and pressed pause/cancel and it still came back. We also unplugged the washer for about 30...


The "Sd" or Suds Detected error means that you used too much detergent. Reduce the amount of detergent that you use, and properly measure it.
When you receive the "F50" code, it means that the motor position sensor does not sense that the basket is moving. Remove any remaining packing material from the tub.

Hope this helps.. :)

My Whirlpool Cabrio (Model Number: WTW6400SW2) washing machine gets an F1 error signal 5 seconds after I power it on to wash something, I have to pause it and then restart it for it to work,


Your machine needs a new control. The F1 code is an error within the main machine control, and it will only get worse the longer it goes. CLICK HERE for the part. Using coupon code 1050 will get you a discount on the part!

Washer gives F50 error. I've taken top off and


Press pause cancel once and that should do it. If not the repair manual advises calling for service. Lets see what the F50 is...hold on...Motor stalled, rotor position sensor detects no motion from the tub, does basket move freely? If basket moves freely see test#3 in the repair manual HERE
The manual gives readings to verify and has a long detailed complicated set of IF's for this machine. Good luck

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.
