SOURCE: error code F51

Hi there,

Well, the code means a rotor position sensor error. The first thing you want to do is see if the basket turns freely by hand. I had one the other day where a dish towel was caught between the basket and tub giving the error. You will have to open the top by using a putty knife and pushing in on the clips on each side. They are strong clips so you have to use some force. The whole top will lift up. Next you will have to remove the tub ring. It just snaps off. If you don't find anything between them, then I would suspect the rotor sensor itself. At the factory they sprayed a protective coating on them and sometimes this causes the problem. You would have to tip the washer back. The motor cover comes off witha allen head, just pulls down. Now there is 4 screws that hold the motor in place. Once you drop them, the plastic cover protector will come down along with the motor so observe carefully where it mounts back up. The motor connector will be the 3 pronged harness on the right side of the motor. The rotor position sensor will be on the left. Snap the position sensor in and out about 8 or 9 times to get the coating off. If this doesn't work, and you keep getting the error, you will have to order the position sensor.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Whirlpool cabrio washer showing F51 error code


Hi Craig,

Just saw this post come up among F51 error codes (as it will show previously posted and answered questions ) and wanted to add some info I have regarding this exact issue you may or may not already have, no harm in posting either way.

The F51 typically indicates a failed "RPS" has been detecected...but it can be the result of other issues...just for future reference and if anyone has not come accross this before.

The scenario you describe is usually associated with a item stuck under the tub or a loose stator or a faulty "RPS" device or connection at the "RPS"...but I don't know if you checked that yet or if you know how, thus the error F51.


**The repair tip below is directly from Whirlpool**

F51 is usually associated with the rotor and stator/RPS assembly and quiet often it is initiated due to a loose rotor or bad RPS...I'd start by checking the bolt.

There is a repair tip regarding this which suggest checking the wires to the RPS and then the rotor, while insuring the center bolt is really tight via applying some "lock tight".

I actually see a lot of these and most times it's a loose rotor bolt, that is where I always start my diagnosis. Here's an exert from my files directly from Whirlpool...

You may want to check the rotor, I've seen the center bolt become extremely loose, thus causing the F51 error, this is where and what to look for shown below...

...but either way that should help out with the repairs and good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Am getting a F51 error code


The electronic control displays an F51 code.
There is an intermittent connection at the Rotor Position Sensor, (RPS), causing the electronic control to indicate an F51 code.
Remove and reinstall the connector at the RPS at least three times to clean off any corrosion built up on the connector and RPS due to the intermittent connection. Confirm that the connector is fully seated onto the RPS control upon final connection and verify there are no damaged wires.
If you still receive the error after this, replace the electronic control with part #W10130544. This new control is designed to check the RPS sensor differently and is less sensitive to intermittent RPS connections.

F51 error


Hello, the F51 code is a motor rotor position sensor failure. It's best to call in the warranty service as there is a bunch of tests that need to be run to determine if it's the sensor or control board. If the tech wasn't any help, contact the store for a replacement.

Thanks

Konica 7145 F-51-2 Error


Code F51-2 at start-up.
Description:
Code F51-2 at start-up.
Solution:
CAUSE: Code F51-2 may be caused by a failed M11 fixing motor. To determine whether or not the motor has failed, use this procedure:
1. Enter the 47 mode (I/O check mode).
2. Input "40".
3. Input multicode "0". If the M11 motor turns, it is good; if it does not turn, the motor has failed.

SOLUTION: Replace the M11 motor (p/n 56AA80072 for 7222/7228/7235 and p/n 56GA73430 for 7145) if it has failed.

hope that help!!!
