SOURCE: Cabrio rotor position sensor
ok lets try... first off you need to have the f51 code. then if you do, you do have a "rps"sensor that has failed.
get under the unit and you will see the large disc with an allen set screw holding it to the tub. remove the screw and it will pull off. then there will be 4 screws holding the rotor windings to the tub with a few wires on the sensor.
remove the screws and then the rotor will pull off and you will have the windings and sensor in your hands. when you get this all of it will be very confusing as the wires and sensor are just held into place by plastic tabs. if you have a new sensor that will help you to know that you are dealing with the right part. then unhook the wires from the sensor and next remove the sensor from the rotor windings
there is an arrow mark to show you where to put the sensor back into place, but its not easy.
thats why i get paid the big bucks!!!!!
anyway you can try this but dont get upset or mad, its just not easy for the first time you do it, but if you do it for a living then it gets easier the more times you do it.
of course i know you will only do it once but thats the best i can offer here.

The F1 error code on this washer indicates a Primary Control Board failure.
It is likely that the machine control board will need to be replaced to correct this problem.
The part number for the machine control board is undetermineable because you have not provided me with the exact model # of your washer.
The procedure for replacing the machine control board is provided HERE
NOTE: Be sure to unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.
There is a slight possibility that a problem with the pressure switch hose could be causing this problem.
A pinched or twisted air hose can cause this fault code.
When you open the console, check the air hose connected to the pressure switch on the machine control board.
If it is pinched or crimped, I recommend rerouting the hose to resolve this problem.
This may fix your problem without replacing the control board.
NOTE: You may want to check for this condition before ordering the control board. Most electronic control boards cannot be returned for a refund or credit.
If you find no apparent problems with the air hose on the pressure switch, then replacing the machine control board on this washer should correct your problem. There is a risk involved in replacing this part yourself.
As noted above, you could have a problem with the air pressure hose that is not apparent upon your initial inspection. A service technician would normally need to properly and thoroughly diagnose this problem before replacing the control board.

Hello, Welcome to FixYa. Based on what you've described, "shakes on spin cycle" sounds like a worn tub bearing unfortunately. If you've already had the unit apart you'll know how to check for sure. Remove the agitator assembly inside the tub, once it's off you'll see the hub which holds the tub in place. ( if you're not sure how let me know...it's should be a single bolt under the center cap, then it'll lift off ) Take the tub assembly and move it side to side to inspect for "play" in the bearing. This will explain the excessive ibration coming from the spin...too much vibration sensed to allow a full spin as well no doubt. Let me know what you find and I'll try to help you move forward from here. The good news is if it's a bearing, most of those whirlpool have 5-10yr. "Parts only" warranty on that. Regards, Macmarkus :)
