Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
Whirlpool Cabrio Washer WTW555OXWO, codes, F1E2 & F5E2 Motor Control Fault & Lid Switch Fault. Started investigations of the Control Board when husband mindlessly put a circuit checker on something, while the washer was plugged in, and made a huge spark/smoke. Saw that a capacitor was blown, changed that, didn't work, saw that the micro control chip was also blown. Ordered a used/but working control panel. Had a broken plastic pressure sensor piece, I exchanged those out. Control Panel did not work in washer, green LED light on though, used multimeter to check Power Supply, checked User Interface, put a different one in and the power button will not work but the knob will turn it on but it does not match up with the lights and the lid lock light flashes and the washer will not work or turn off with the power button.

If you replaced the lid lock then you know how to get the top of the cabinet up lift the top up there should be a technical sheet in a plastic packet on the front panel it will tell you how to run a diagnostic if not there turn machine off press and hold any button except power/cancel for 3 seconds release 3 seconds repeat until 88 appears after that any fault codes should appear I have only had to replace a control twice on these units I am curious to see if you get an F50 or F51 code this is the most common when this machine first starts the lid should lock a short rotation of the basket lid unlocks then locks a short fill then rotation of the basket let me know what you find could be the control but I would like to eliminate the rotor and RPS sensor
