I have a whirlpool cabrio WTW5500XW2 and the motor wont spin up. Error code is F1E2. The belt is on and working and i can spin the pulley's easily and every thing turns. Plugged it in and pressed start and it turned a little (about a quarter turn) but it wont spin up and the motor gets extremely hot real fast (under a minute) and you cant touch it. Took off the belt and the motor will spin? Im thinking its the motor?

I'm attaching your tech. data sheet below. Do the steps it says in TEST #3b and you will locate the bad part.

ERROR CODE F1E2--->MOTOR CONTROL FAULT
Indicates a fault of the motor control section of the main control.
--->See TEST #3b: Drive System – Motor, page 14.

Here's the control board for your model:
W10480305 Electronic Control Board

Your welcome, what did you find? Or are you not going to fix it, and just buy a new washer?
