Whirlpool cabrio wtw5500xw Motor
« on: August 23, 2021, 03:58:21 PM »

I have a whirlpool cabrio wtw5500xw2 and the motor wonít spin up. Error code is F1E2. The belt is on and working and i can spin the pulley's easily and everything turns. Plugged it in and pressed start and it turned a little (about a quarter turn) but it wonít spin up and the motor gets extremely hot real fast (under a minute) and you canít touch it. Took off the belt and the motor will spin? Iím thinking itís the motor?  The green check light on the board is on.

Likely the control card but check the motor cap first.
