Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Cabrio Washer stopped & showed an "F 50" error code

Cabrio Washer, got an "F50" code & service man says we need to replace the motor control board for $450. I doubt he checked it much further, but he apparently used a service guide that was located inside the washer to troubleshoot. I have it out & am looking at it but haven't re-run the test.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. F50 flashes when the motor rotor position sensor (RPS) senses no rotation. To start with check the wiring to the motor and rotor position sensor. Check if the basket is turning freely; if not then check what is causing this. If it is turning freely then you’ll need to remove the console and check the motor control assembly. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

    Here's what I've done so far...I found a piece of clothing that was in between the outer water tub and the inner basket. I pulled it out and put everything back together & tried a very small load. Got the same F50 code again. So now i"ve lifted the washer to look underneath.



    The wiring to the RPS looks good, but I can't get the motor bolt out to remove the motor cover & look at the sensor or the rest of the wiring.



    I noticed that the basket will turn freely to a point, but then seems to bind & stop. Do I need to take the inner basket out & look for something else that's got it bound up? How do I get the inner basket out?

F 50 error code on whirlpool cabrio washer


Simple solution-- needs a new control pane. I just had to deal with the F50 code on a 4 year old Cabrio Wtw6200 model. Did diagnostics, it spun freely but took out the tub just to check, check all circuit plugs as suggested, etc,....At the point of deciding whether to junk it ($600 in 4 years) or gamble for a control board costing $155. and non-refundable if it didn't work. Went for the control panel (part #W10189966). took my husband and I about 25 minutes to replace, and it worked! Spins, no error codes, and even fixed the loud noise it used to have! Wish someone would have told us..... please don't waste your time on a repairman or other solutions...

ERROR MESSAGE F50


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.

What is f50 error and how to fix it


Hello there
The F50 error code indicates a stalled motor failure. Open the lid & see if the spin basket rotates freely. Look on the floor under the washer to be sure nothing has gotten in the way of the motor rotor. If everything looks good, you will need to have the motor checked with a meter to determine the diagnoses. Usually this type of failure will either be the motor assembly or a control board issue. ere.exe
Hope this is very helpful

Washer whirlpool cabrio message code f50,washer


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.

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.
