How To Install & Remove W10189966 Control Board

Removing and installing the W10189966 motor/machine control board in your washer is an easy task.  This control board is used on some Whirlpool Cabrio, Kenmore Oasis, and Maytag Bravos model washers.  When this control board fails, they will commonly come up with an F1 error code repeatedly that won’t go away.

  • First unplug the washer
  • Next, remove the three hex screws from the rear of the top console.
  • Then Lift the console off the cabinet and disconnect the cable going to the user interface board.  This will give you access to the motor/machine control board.
  • Disconnect the nine wire connectors going to the control board and the pressure switch hose (also called a pressure transducer tube).
  • Remove the mounting screw and lift the front of the control, slide it out from under the clips at the back, and remove it.
  • Re-install the new control board in the reverse order.

If you have any questions, please post them in the comments section below.

Machine/Motor Control – W10189966

2 Thoughts on "How To Install & Remove W10189966 Control Board"

    I took the Cosole off of the machine–without taking a picture of where the User Interface Board and Encoder -plugged into the Machine /Motor Control & Pressure Transducer.
    Every thing I can fine says it Plugs into P11. Most of the Picture showing the cable to P11, show about 8-9 wires. I only have three wires in my lead.
    I may be wrong, but it seems like it plugged into the top of the Machine /Motor Control, one of the slots between P5 and P9. There are three slots. The one closest to P9 is to small.
    Lesson learned on not taking a picture or marking the spot.
    Thank You,

    The two spots that the plug will fit into are Labeled “Red” and “Wide”
    I believe it is one of those two slots I removed it from.
    Thank You,
