I PURCHASED THE WHIRLPOOL CABRIO WASHER WTW6600SW IN JANUARY 2007. I JUST STARTED HAVING PROBLEMS. THE CODE F 50 KEEPS COMING UP. THE MACHINE WILL NOT WASH OR SPIN. THE MACHINE IS ONLY A YEAR AND A HALF OLD AND SHOULD NOT BE GIVING ME ANY PROBLEMS. mildredparrott@bellsouth.net

    I got the F 50 code on my Whirlpool Cabrio (model wtw6600sw) last night- the tub will not spin. Is this easily fixable, or is there great $$ involved? The washer is only 2 years old.

Most likely connection to motor sensor on bottom.. just behind the motor rotor the connection is probably not making good contact with sensor connection

F1 is displayed on washer wtw6600sw-wht


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F1 error in your whirlpool cabrio indicates bad control and should be replaced to resolve the error code. However, you can contact Whirlpool as well prior to replacing the control yourself as I have seen whirlpool paying for the parts themselves just because this is known to be a common issue. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Hi there,

Well error F1 means the central electrical control unit, i.e. the onboard computer, has fatally failed.
First of all you may leave unplugging the washer from the wall, leave it unplugged for a while. That may reset the internal computer chip. If further you have the same problem then it need some part (chip) replacement need some skills of electronics, part is $150 CODE 083009 part W10189966 CNTRL-ELEC. Post comments for further help or information...........
Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

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.

First off I hope you have a Sears unit and second you did not pay a penny. Your F 1 error is a Primary control failure. Part W10104830 and one other do F1 and a oL code.
If you own a Sears machine you qualify for a recall under sf26-779B.
There is two parts to this call the board and a washplate
MCU part # W10201186
Washplate # W10077050
Recall will need your name and phone number and the machine model and serial number.

If you meet all of these conditions to the letter call Sears Recall at 1-800-659-7026
