Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

Is this a top load or front load washer? And after the F flashes, a number will also appear on the screen. Can I get that number please?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

F then the number 50 flashes on after, thought the might just be the timer.

It is a top load Bravo

Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 5 years ago.
ok so F50 means that your motor control board isn't turning the motor properly for some reason. Unfortunately the motor control board under the top control panel in the back right corner will need to be ordered and replaced to fix the issue. The part is about $150.

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Do I take the front of the control panel off or do I enter for the rear of the washer.

Where would I order this part and should I get a part #

Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 5 years ago.
You need the model number to order the correct control board which you can order at if you want. As for how to replace the part, below is a link to a video that shows you how to replace the part for a different issue (F1). Either way, it's the same part you need to replace.
