Cabrio model WTW6600SW2 w/F50 error
« on: September 14, 2011, 12:16:33 PM »
Cabrio model WTW6600SW2      serial #CU2472185
Saw a friend ticked off on Facebook last night about this washer it threw an F50.  Repair guy was out (she thought I was HVAC missed that call :( ) he said the F50 was really an F51 and it was bad motor and a bunch of other stuff.  Apparantely he popped the top made a phone call and that was about it but never verified anything.  Is anyone seeing a pattern with these whether it be the motor (not worth the repair for the price) or the RPS  (kit and worth the repair).  Any thoughts, I don't do warranty work and haven't worked on enough of them to see a trend.  *basket spins freely
Thanks Folks!

If it does spin i always remove the tub and make sure that the tub can move up and down and that there is nothing under it ,if that checks then its on to test 3 in the manual.

F50/F51 is a common problem with the Cabrio, Maytag Bravos and Kenmore Oasis models, Problem is with the RPS, there is a Whirlpool service bulliten on this. May need a new control and RPS kit.

Good tip on making sure it really will float up and down with no hidden ubstruction's... only a few extra minutes to take it out.

Nutznboltz I did find the service bulletin boy that would be great if all I had to do was unplug the RPS a few times and clean the contact's but if the control is that touchy sound's like a new updated one is in order.

Thanks

I find usually removing the rps and cleaning the contacts will solve the problem .If it doesn't the control needs changing . The new electronics are not so sensitive and won't F51 easily if it see's a rps position it doesn't loke .

Update: I never was able to get my hand's on the unit.  Lowe's offered a half off on any non-Whirlpool washer up to $800 so it was a no brainer for them to buy new.  I tried to have them save the unit for me but they would not allow it.  Thank's for the info folks I have a much better idea of what I'm walking into with these things.
