I noticed a reply you made some time ago offering to walk someone through the replacement of a Cabrio rotor position sensor. Would you be willing to help me? I am getting the "F" code in the middle of the wash cycle and have to cancel, etc.

Re: 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.

Your fault code is 131,RPS faulty. 130. (10000010) Phase 1 to 6 Single Rotor Position Sensor Error
The Motor Controller has found an error in the pattern received from the Rotor
Position Sensor. Likely causes of this fault are a bad connection on the harness
between the Rotor Position Sensor and the Motor Controller, or a faulty Rotor
Primary Source: Wiring.
1) Check for corrosion on the edge connector of the Rotor Position Sensor and
the Motor Controller module connector.
2) Check the contacts on the rotor positional sensor end of the hall harness to
see if any have been damaged. (Each set of contacts in the socket has two
wipers. If the distance between these wipers varies between different
contacts, replace the rotor positional sensor harness).
Secondary Source: Rotor Position Sensor.
Check the Rotor Position Sensor with an R.P.S. tester. Replace if faulty.
Tertiary Source: Motor Controller module.
Replace Motor Controller module. 131. (10000011) Phase 1 to 6 - Repetitive Rotor Position Sensor Error
This fault is similar to fault number 130 above but differs slightly in that it is a
continuous condition. See fault code 130 for service procedure
This is a rotor position sensor Fault, below is the diagnostic procedure from the service manual.

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya This is the Cabrio washer. F51 fault code is
likely the Rotor Position switch failure, located on the motor. Even
though it might run, the Hall sensor inside it has gone out. The Cabrio
manual is in the Online Repair manuals Forum which you may jump to from
any page at the bottom right if you want to test motor resistance from
the convenience of the console. Many people mistakenly replace the main
control board in hopes of correcting this issue but it is actually a
communications error between the Hall sensor and the main board.
There is a Rotor Position switch kit which should correct the problem, and comes with a new harness and excellent instructions. picure below :
Inspect the rotor position sensor for loose or frayed wires. The washer tub and motor are all suspended on 4 rods. See page 59 More about the rotor position sensor is on page 57 of your service manual.
Hello, It is a rotor position sensor code. The control is no longer receiving
a signal from the motor. It can be a failed sensor or control, but
usually it is a bad connection where the wires plug on to the sensor. Thanks
You have the F51 code. The reason could be due to an intermittent connection at the rotor position sensor (RPS). To correct this, remove and install the the connector at the rotor position sensor (plug and unplug) at least three times to clean off any corrosion build up on the connector or the rotor position sensor due to the intermittent connection.
Confirm that the connector is fully seated onto the rotor position sensor upon final connection and verify that there are no damaged wires. The electronic control unit may have to be replaced, since the upgraded version is less sensitive to intermittent RPS connections.
F50 means that the motor stalled. An F then 50 flashes when the
motor rotor position sensor (RPS) senses no rotation. You will need to
verify that the basket can turn freely; If it does not and this machine
is new, then make sure bottom shipping pack has been removed or
determine what is the cause of friction. If the basket turns freely,
you will need to perform test checks with the wiring to the motor and
rotor position sensor; and the motor and rotor position sensor
themselves. I can help you through this process, or if you are not
comfortable doing it, you can hire a qualified technician.
If you need further help or clarification on this answer, please do not hesitate to reply to this post.Good luck with the machine.Please do rate my solution if it solves your problem.
It is a rotor position sensor code. The control is no longer recieving a signal from the motor. It can be a failed sensor or control, but usually it is a bad connection where the wires plug on to the sensor. If the machine is less than a year old, it will be repaired in warranty. If not, post back and I will try to walk you through the repair if you want to try it.
