Hi, I have a whirlpool washer WFW9050XW00,, it doesn't go in spin mode after drain. Draining is ok, no water stays. Before this happens my wife says the laundry was still wet after spinning.

I tried the diagnostic mode but the machine won't go in. So I thought it was the belt and replace it. The old one was dead! Tried the washer again and still no spinning at all.

I looked at the light flashing when the washer stop and it show error code F6E1. The manual says it's a bad communication between the central control unit and the motor control unit. How to know which one is malfunctioning?

Thank you for help.

Hi,

Usually the F6E1 is a bad MCU(Motor Control Unit). Also you will usually see a burnt spot on that board as well when it throws this error code.

Here's the MCU for your model:
WPW10384843 Electronic Control Board

Wait, Your not in the USA? I just noticed your location. How can you make this USA washer work in another country?

Hi Jake, thank you for your answer. We do have sellers for all US brand, if dual voltage or 220v is not available, they have voltage transformer installed in the machine. I'm gonna check for the burnt spot. It's the second time in ten years that I have to replace that MCU, any idea on what could be the cause?

No Nick, I don't know what the cause is for the MCU to go bad twice unless its in the step down transformer you are using on the machine to go from 220 volts to 120 volts that the machine runs on.
