Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to assist you. Do you have the model number of the washer? Does it fill and then beep or beep right away?

mtw6600tbo it sprays a little water, pumps a little and then beeps and stops
Sorry about the slight delay. Does the wash basket turn freely?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Yes it does. I ran diagnostics mode and it show fault codes F50, f51 and f68 are stored in memory
Two things cause the dreaded F50 code. (motor)

1. The machine control
Bravos MTW6600T

2. The stator

Item 17 this link:

The upper cover of the stator comes in kit form and has been known to also cause the dreaded F50 code.

All of them are some what costly repair(s) in my book but cheaper than a new machine.

I have yet to change a Stator for an F50 Code.... but have changed a lot of machine controls (most often failure) and stator cover kits (occasional failure) that corrected the problem. I am here for further assistance and thank you for your time and patience, Randy.
