Um cant really help other then to reccomned replacing the RPS sensor for a F51code. And as far as i beleive the part comes with a new sensor and attached wiring harness. a little more complicated then any other machine whirlpool has in the market so i probably would suggest you replacing the part yourself.. i wouldnt wanna chance breakin other parts while dismantling the assy.

Whirlpool cabrio washing machine doesn't spin


Try to turn the drum by hand, if it hard to turn, there may be something stuck underneath spin basket. If it does turn freely but makes a loud growling sound, you probably have a bad bearing. You should notice black oil and water mixture at bottom of washer, on the rotor. It will usually throw a f51 error code. This unit has service bulletin on this problem.

What does F 51 mean?


The F51 fault code on your Cabrio washer indicates that the control board is not sensing the proper drive motor spin. To clear the fault code, press the Pause/Cancel button.

Make sure that the drain hose is not stuck way down the stand pipe. This can cause siphoning of fill water which will inhibit proper motor rotation.

Check to see if the wash basket spins freely. If it does not, you may have an item of clothing stuck between the outer tub and the inner basket. This restriction in rotation will also cause an F51 fault code.

If these tips do not help you resolve the F51 problem, then you probably have a component failure. Possible failures include: wire harness or wire connection problem between the machine control and the RPS sensor (Rotor Position Sensor), a failed RPS sensor, a failed drive motor, and a failed machine control board.

Whirlpool cabrio WTW6700TW1 only fills little bit, won't turn or agitate, buzz sound/humming noise,code F51 flashes??


The F51 error is a RPS (rotary position sensor) board failure where the control board looses contact with the RPS during the machines operation. The RPS uses hall effect sensors to determine the speed and direction of the drive motor, allowing the control board to constantly monitor the motors operation. Because this error is a communication error and not a mechanical error with the motor itself (that would be and F52 error) we can limit our trouble shooting to the three items that make up the RPS circuit, the control board, the wiring harness, and the RPS itself.

I started getting Error Code F51, now no spin action at all??


I had the same problem, in addition to the lid lock which would not lock and the solution was a new motor and capacitor on a month and a half old machine. Needless to say, I was not very happy and got little compassion from Whirlpool who sent service out to fix the problem. Ended up costing Whirlpool as much to fix the machine as I paid for it.

The F50 error code indicates that the RPS (rotor position sensor) detects no motor rotation. Check to see if the basket spins freely. If not, you could have an item caught between the outer tub and the inner spin basket. A toy or other item underneath the washer could also prevent the basket from spinning and would result in this F50 code.

If the basket spins freely, you could have a wiring failure that would prevent the motor from spinning.

Whirlpool Cabrio HE washing machine displays error code F51. What is it and hw to I fix it?


I work for an appliance repair company and I had a recent service call for the same exact situation on this washer. I also know that Rotary Position Sensor is linked to the F-51 error code. I have found that this is not always the case. On this paticular call the F-51 error code was caused by a piece of clothing (sock, wash cloth, etc.) being stuck or jammed between the internal basket and the outer tub. I removed the cloth and the washer ran fine, so give that a check first before you spend the money.

Washer keeps giving me a "F51" error code? What do I do?


I placed a very detailed post on how to resolve this issue. If you are mechanically and electrically inclined, this will give you pretty much step by step directions. I also analyzed why this is happening. Please disconnect power before any work... There is 120V floating around inside to bite you!
