It all started when i was hearing a "grinding sound" at the beginning of every rinse cycle. I took the washer apart and found the drain motor making the terrible racket and replaced it. I put the machine on a rinse and drain cycle and the and now that it has been replaced, the machine is still not draining. I then tried putting it on a wash cycle and I am now getting an F50 code. After reading some history of this washing machine, i went digging for part # and cost. Well i have found a control board (AP4360738) and a control-ELEC (AP3958445) both of which "sound" to be the right part. Can someone point me in the right direction. These are both rather expensive and I really only want to replace what is neccessary. Thank you in advance and I look forward to hearing from someone in the near future. Happy Easter!

Does the Drain Motor running, now?
Is it getting voltage ?

F50
(main) Motor Stalled
F then 50 flashes when the motor rotor position sensor (RPS) senses no rotation.

When you replaced the drain pump - any chance you pinched/disconnected or otherwise moved any other wires underneath? Because F50 started when you replaced the drain pump, you can pretty much be sure that it is not a bad board. More likely that a wire to the RPS sensor was disconnected.

Because you had a busted pump, it might be best to pull the inner basket anyway just to make sure there are no more coins or bra wires ready to break your new pump. At the same time you will see if there is something caught between the tubs causing your F50 code.

Lift the main top (2 spring clips about 5" in from each side)
Pop the little cap off the center of the agitator
Remove the bolt
Remove the tub ring that is clipped onto the top of the outer basket (one hose connected on left rear)
Pull straight up on the inner basket till it slides up off the spline shaft
Remove the 2 1/4" screws from the white drain/recirculating pumps cover
Make sure there is nothing caught in that area
Reassemble.
