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.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore Oasis HE top load washer;

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

LINK: http://media.fotki.com/1_p,wfgstgtftbtkrrdxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/gfsfgfsgqxgfqtqtgwf/1/1303472/5961857/image55806img-or.gif



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.

56. (00111000) Phase 4 to 6 - Basket Check No Valid Fault

While carrying out a basket check, the machine has not been able to determine a

valid tub status and so the Display flags this fault. This fault differs from fault 40 in

that a valid tub status could not be determined. The first two areas to check are the

clutch and pressure tube. If these two appear correct, then the fault could be with

the pressure transducer in the motor controller.

Primary Source: Mechanical.

Action:

1) Check that there are no clothes or other foreign objects preventing the clutch

from re-engaging.

2) Next check that the pressure tube has not come off and that it is not kinked.

Secondary Source: Motor Controller module. (Phase 4) Rotor Position

Sensor (Phase 5 and 6)

Action:

Replace the Motor Controller module. (Phase 4) Rotor Position Sensor (Phase 5
and 6)

SOURCE: how to fix a fisher

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(no promises 'cos it could be a number of things but try this!)
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
John C
