Question and Answers


Whirlpool washer model WTW6300SW1


You could have a problem with the suspension rods/springs or with the spin basket. A bad spin bearing at the bottom of the plastic outer tub could also be causing your problem. You (or an appliance handyman) can probably check the basket and the suspension rods/springs. The images below provide some access information for your Cabrio washer. Be sure that you unplug the washer before accessing internal components. Tape the lid down to the top panel before lifting that top panel up.

There is a chance that you will find a problem with the suspension springs or that you will find an item stuck under the spin basket. This may help you fix the washer without a lot of expense. If you need parts, you can order them from this page: Whirlpool Cabrio Washer Model WTW6300SW1 .

If that bearing in the bottom of the tub is bad, then the washer will probably not be economical to repair.

If you want to have a Sears Technician examine the washer and repair it, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

F50 code on whirlpool cabrio washer model# WTW6300SW1


The F-50 error code on this washer indicates that the machine control board in the console detects a motor RPS (Rotor Position Sensor -- tachometer) failure. This can be caused by a number of different problems. You could have a bad RPS sensor, a failed motor, a wire harness connection problem or an item stuck between the spin basket and the outer tub that is interfering with spin basket rotation. A water filling problem could also cause this code to be displayed since the basket would have excessive friction if water is not entering the machine properly. With the washer off, spin the basket to see if it rotates freely. If you detect resistance or suspect that an item is stuck between the basket and the outer tub, you will likely need to remove the basket and check this area. The procedure for removing the basket is shown in the first image below. Remove the basket and check for foreign objects or debris.

If the basket spins freely, make sure that your water supply cut-off valves are fully open. Shut off the water supply and remove the hoses from the connections on the back of the washer. Place the ends of the hoses in a bucket and briefly turn on the water supply to check the flow and water pressure coming from the end of the hoses. Check the inlet water valve screens for deposits or debris that could interfere with the water fill. The motor will begin to spin the basket before the washer completes the filling function. If the filling is slow, it could cause the F-51 and F-50 code.

If the water supply is okay, you could have a wire harness connection problem, failed RPS sensor or a number of other failures. If you are technically advanced and have a volt/ohm meter, you can use the technical information provided in the third image to try and diagnose your likely failure. NOTE: This information is intended for technicians. Follow electrical safety guidelines when using this information. Unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components. Internal metal edges in the washer can be sharp. Protective gloves are recommended.

I recommend that you unplug the washer and access the control board first. Check the wire harness connections on the P10 and P5 plugs first. Measure the resistance through the motor and the RPS sensor as shown below. This may point you in the direction of your failure. If you need more help, submit additional details.

This is often a difficult failure to diagnose and repair in an Oasis washer. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.
