F50 Code is telling you the motor has stalled.

Check to see if the tub is locked. (won't turn) If locked find out what is causing the friction. If it turns freely download this manual:

First see page 65 for code read out then follow the steps on page 72 / (6-10) Test 3

There is a problem with RPM sensing / Motor control board / motor assy

Check Maytag.com for computer codes relating to your device. They provide full information for all of their machines online and this sounds like a common code number.

What is code error F50 on my miele W3725 washing machine mean


I have today purchased a Miele 3985 machine with a know F50 Fault code appearing

Before I went to the expense of calling a Miele technician, I explored the blocked / clogged drain path

I removed the drain pipe and noticed there was a lot of 'residue' / gunk in there

I cleaned what I could, and blew through the pipe back into the machine

Then I did a cotton wash cycle at 90degrees, with a 1litre of bleach to clean the drain path

The wash looked extremely dirty during the cycle

It appears that this resolved the F50 fault code issue with my Miele 3985 Navitronic

Whirlpool cabrio washer keeps flashing code 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.

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...
