Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6400SW2

11 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have a Whirlpool Cabrio washing machine, it recently started making a sound as if there was loose change inside it, it now stopped working and gives an F-50 code. Anyone knows the fix for this?

thanks

I have removed the agitator inside, it led nowhere, I'm unable to see if there is something stuck inside, anyone knows how to access the pump?

To access the pump, tape the lid shut and gently lower the washer onto the front panel. From there you can access the pumps and motor. The back panel also comes off, several screws so you can see inside the outer tub.

Might be a dime or two rattling around the pump. remove the inner basket and then remove the pump inlet lid an check.

hi, I called Whirlpool yesterday and they did not mention anthing about a recall or rework, they did offer a service tech visit, but it was not free. I have done a manual troubleshooting on the unit and still comes with the F-50 error. This error is refered to as a motor stalled failure. will the computer do this type of failure?

thanks

Hi, is there a way to test the main board or harness cables to the motor, all the tests indicate a stalled motor; will the main board cause this?

thanks
