Hi thats a power connecter you should start your computer to see if it work fine check your CD/DVD to see if it opening and close. if it does that mean its receiving power and if your hard drive is working that mean its an extra connector and dont need to plug into anything.

    The power connectors lead from the power supply to the hard drive and the CD/DVD drive and some computers have floppy drive, with some extra connectors freely in the computer so please start the computer first and if it work fine then no need to worry about that connector.

  • depboys Jul 16, 2010

    the computer starts and I get the black screen telling me the following:



    EXITING PXE ROM

    BOOTABLE DEVICE----INSERT BOOT DISC AND PRESS ANY KEY



    That is as far as it gets.

  • Hilton Bristol Jul 16, 2010

    Thanks for replying this mean that the P10 power connector is to plug into the hard drive all you need to do is plug it into the 4 pin at the back of the hard drive.

  • depboys Jul 16, 2010

    The four pin connector on the hard drive does not match the connector on the five wire group

  • Hilton Bristol Jul 16, 2010

    To identify the hard drive look for a rectangle shape metal and plastic devise its the only thing beside CD/DVD drive that the connector can be connected to.

  • Hilton Bristol Jul 16, 2010

    Please describe in more details for example the shape of it.

  • depboys Jul 16, 2010

    I found the connection on the hard drive and plugged it in as you advised and BINGO we are up and running. Thank you sir, I will sleep much better tonight.

Problem is error code f7 keeps appearing


Error code F7 normally indicates a fault with the flow meter. This is located inside the plastic tank, on the left side of the machine.
1. Unplug the appliance.
2. pull it out (if under counter).
3. If it's a freestanding model , remove the top. Then take off the left side panel.
4. Locate the plastic tank, on the side of the tub, is the flow meter.
5. There is a small plug attached to it. Pull the plug off and plug it on again several times. This should clean up connection which may have become corroded.
Put it back together and try the machine again.

Hello,

The F51 error code says the part on the motor called the rotor position sensor has failed

this is the test procude that must be performed to see if it or another part is bad (as taken directly from the cabrio (online) service manual)
TEST #3 Motor Circuit
This test checks the wiring to the motor and rotor position sensor; and the motor and rotor position sensor themselves. NOTE: Drain water from tub.
1. See Activation of Manual Diagnostic Test Mode, and check the motor and electrical connections by performing the Agitate and Spin tests under Manual: Motor. The following steps assumes that this stepfailed.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check to see if basket will turn freely. If basket turns freely, go to step 4. If basket does not turn freely, determine what is causing the mechanical
friction or lock up.
4. Remove the console to access the machine/ motor control assembly. See Accessing& Removing the Electronic Assemblies.
5. Visually check that the P5 and P10 connectors are inserted all the way into the machine/motor control. If visual checks pass, go to step 6.
If visual checks fail, reconnect P5 and P10 and repeat step 1.
6. With an ohmmeter, check for 16 ohms resistance at the P5 connector between pins P5-1 and P5-2, and also between pins P5-1 and P5-3. Also measure the resistance at the P10 connector between pins P10-1 and P10-7 and verify that the resistance is within the range shown in the wiring diagram on page 7-1.
If the resistance is correct, go to step 11. If the P5 connector resistance is much higher than 16 ohms, or the P10 connector resistance is out of range, go to
step 7.
7. Tilt machine forward to access the bottom of the machine and the drive motor area. See Figure 1 on page 6-13. Remove the motor bolt, then the motor cover to access the motor connections. See Figure 2 on page 6-13.
8. Visually check the mounting bracket and electrical connections to the motor and rotor position sensor board. If visual check passes, go to step 9.
If visual check fails, reconnect the electrical connections, reassemble stator and motor cover and repeat step 1.
9. With an ohmmeter, check for continuity between all pins on the P10 machine/motor control connector and the motor rotor position sensor (RPS) connector. See Figures 2 and 4, pages 6-13 and 6-16. If there is continuity, go to step 11. If there is no continuity, replace the lower machine harness.
10. With an ohmmeter, check for continuity between all pins on the P5 machine/motor control connector and the drive motor connector. If there is continuity, replace the drive motor. If there is no continuity, replace the lower machine harness.
11. The drive motor and lower harness are good. Replace the motor RPS board and perform the Diagnostics test in step 1 to verify repair.
12. If the Diagnostics motor test in step 1 failed, then the machine/motor control has failed: Unplug the washer or disconnect power. Replace the machine/motor control assembly. Perform the Motor Diagnostics in step 1 to verify repair

At one point it refers to TEST#1 and thats this;
TEST #1 Supply Connections
This test assumes that proper voltage is present at the outlet.
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Access the machine/motor control assembly. See Accessing & Removing the Electronic Assemblies.
3. With an ohmmeter, check for continuity between the neutral (N) terminal of the plug and P13-1 on the machine/motor control.
See Figures 3 and 4, page 6-16. If there is continuity, go to step 4. If there is no continuity, replace the power cord.
4. In a similar way, check the continuity between the L1 terminal of the plug and P13-3 on the machine/motor control. See
Figures 3 and 4, page 6-16. If there is continuity, go to step 5. If there is no continuity, replace the power cord.
5. Visually check that the P10 connector is inserted all the way into the machine/motor control.
6. Visually check that the user interface assembly is properly inserted into the front console.
7. If both visual checks pass, replace the user interface assembly. See Reinstalling the Electronic Assemblies.
8. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
9. Activate the Console and Indicators Diagnostic Test mode to verify repair.
10. If indicators still do not light, the machine/ motor control has failed: Unplug washer or disconnect power. Replace the machine/motor control assembly.
Plug in washer or reconnect power

SO AS YOU CAN SEE ITS QUITE INVOLVED AND I RECOMMEND YOU CALL FOR SERVICE UNLESS YOUR MECHANICALLY INCLIDED AND THIS MAKES SENSE TO YOU

Code f50 is what?


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'm getting a F 51 code during the washing cycle and does not clear.


Hi

F51 error is a rotor position sensor error. This is a hardware error either due to a faulty rotor position sensor or due to a faulty control board. Motor is located directly underneath the tub. The RPS board is mounted on the right side (follow the brown wires) and under the motors rotor disk. An Allen wrench is used to remove the rotor and then the four bolts holding the motor stator to the tub can be removed. You would need to check the motor by running Motor test. Please follow the steps from the service manual given below---

1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check to see if basket will turn freely.
3. If basket turns freely, go to step 4. If basket does not turn freely, determine what is causing the mechanical
friction or lock up.
4. Remove the console to access the machine/ motor control assembly.
5. Visually check that the P5 and P10 connectors are inserted all the way into the machine/motor control. If visual checks pass, go to step 6.
If visual checks fail, reconnect P5 and P10 and repeat step 1.
6. With an ohmmeter, check for 16 ohms resistance at the P5 connector between pins P5-1 and P5-2, and also between pins P5-1 and P5-3. Also measure the resistance at the P10 connector between pins P10-1 and P10-7 and verify that the resistance is within the range.
If the resistance is correct, go to step 11. If the P5 connector resistance is much higher than 16 ohms, or the P10 connector resistance is out of range, go to next step.
7. Tilt machine forward to access the bottom of the machine and the drive motor area. See Figure 1 on page 6-13. Remove the motor bolt, then the motor cover to access the motor connections.
8. Visually check the mounting bracket and electrical connections to the motor and rotor position sensor board. If visual check passes, go to step 9.
If visual check fails, reconnect the electrical connections, reassemble stator and motor cover and repeat step 1.
9. With an ohmmeter, check for continuity between all pins on the P10 machine/motor control connector and the motor rotor position sensor (RPS) connector. See Figures 2 and 4, pages 6-13 and 6-16. If there is continuity, go to step 11. If there is no continuity, replace the lower machine harness.
10. With an ohmmeter, check for continuity between all pins on the P5 machine/motor control connector and the drive motor connector. If there is continuity, replace the drive motor. If there is no continuity, replace the lower machine harness.
11. The drive motor and lower harness are good. Replace the motor RPS board and perform the Diagnostics test in step 1 to verify repair.
12. If the Diagnostics motor test in step 1 failed, then the machine/motor control has failed: Unplug the washer or disconnect power. Replace the machine/motor control assembly. Perform the Motor Diagnostics in step 1 to verify repair.

8. Visually check the mounting bracket and electrical connections to the motor and rotor position sensor board. If visual check passes, go to step 9. If visual check fails, reconnect the electrical
connections, reassemble stator and motor cover and repeat step 1.

9. With an ohmmeter, check for continuity between all pins on the P10 machine/motor control connector and the motor rotor position sensor (RPS) connector. If there is continuity, go to step 11.
If there is no continuity, replace the lower machine harness.

10. With an ohmmeter, check for continuity between all pins on the P5 machine/motor control connector and the drive motor connector. If there is continuity, replace the drive motor. If there is no continuity, replace the lower machine harness.

11. The drive motor and lower harness are good. Replace the motor RPS board and perform the Diagnostics test in step 1 to verify repair.

12. If the Diagnostics motor test in step 1 failed, then the machine/motor control has failed: Unplug the washer or disconnect power. Replace the machine/motor control assembly. Perform the Motor Diagnostics in step 1 to verify repair.
