Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6000 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a maytag top load washer (Bravos quiet series 300) that has stoped working. it flashes a code of "F51". It did this before and the repair man opened it up and found small clothing items that had washed over the spinning tub (it does not have an agitator). He put it back together and it was fine. It has done that again now: Question: How do I open it up to get to the items stuck down around the bottom of the outside of the spinning tub?

Press 2 metal tabs. About 6" from the sides on the front of washer. Plastic ring on top has tabs that need to be disengaged to disconnect the ring. Once ring has been removed the area between the plastic tub & metal tub is accessible. Check for small articles of clothing, like socks or underwear. Inner tub can be removed by: snap up plastic cap (small slot for tool to slip in and pop up). Remove 7/16 nut and remove agitator (may require to be rocked back & forth, sits on a splined shaft). Remove 5 small phillips screws, being careful not to drop any, and pull inner metal tub up (may require it being shimmied back and forth). Removing this tub will give full access to any debris or articles of clothing that may be under it. Please keep in mind that if you're challenged in reassembly

What does code F51 mean


Code F51 means there is a problem with the Rotor Position Sensor. This could be something as minor as a bad plug connection. However, there have been many cases of socks or other small garments being flung over the top of the tub rim and getting caught between the metal tub and the plastic tub which contains the water. The "errant" clothing keeps the tub from returning to it's original position thus preventing the Position Sensor from aligning.

My Maytag 300 quite series has a code F51 what does this mean?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly The F51 code is a motor rotor position sensor (RPS) feedback error. In other words the control board is not sensing any motor rotation. It is fixable but will result in the replacement of failed parts. (Sensor or electronic control board) The control board is not cheap. Hopefully you only have a failed sensor.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
