I have a Maytag...

I have a Maytag MTW6700TQ0. It is 10 years old. Code F50 displayed. No spin cycle. Tub is free to spin my hand. Do I replace just the RPS or need to do the control board, too? Thanks, Gary

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

10 years old. Model MTW6700TQ0

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

That is my hope. I am reasonably mechanically adept.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

F50 code. Will not go inot spin cycle.

Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

The RPS sensor gives an F51 error when it fails. If you're getting F50 that is a bad main control board in the upper back right corner of your washer under the control panel. You'll need to order and replace this control board to resolve the issue. Below is a link to the part.

My concern is spending $300 on a control board for a 10 yr-old machine. Only a few problems over the years. I can buy a new one for $700-800 with a discount through employer. Your suggestion?

Hmm one second.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

Looks like you can buy the part for $180 at Sears (they are going out of business so discounting prices quite a bit). I would probably just buy it from them. It's easy to swap out yourself.
