Question about Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 Top Load Washer
When I removed the back panel to tackle the F51 code, I noticed something dark (possible article of clothing) between the outer plastic drum and the inner metal drum. Is there suppossed to be something between the drums or is this a lost piece of clothing. I don't want to retrieve it if it is factory installed. Thank you.
Possible that ther is a piece of clothing, if you can "pop" the top and tilt the top back, you can then unsnap the upper tub ring cover, that tub "floats in the unit so you can lift it right out. as far as the f51 what was the result on that?? thas usually requires replacing trhe "rps" sensor and main control board, id call whirplool depending on age for that matter

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.
