Question about Whirlpool WTW6600SW Top Load
Fault code F51 What does it mean and what are the solutions or repairs to eliminate this fault code Whrilpool wtw6600sb1 wont finish draining and go to spin cycle making a loud noise from the pump on the left side
Most likely connection to motor sensor on bottom.. just behind the motor rotor the connection is probably not making good contact with sensor connection...
It is the code for a stalled motor see if the tub turns freely and we will go from there. select stop cancel to clear the code see if it resets...

The F51 code indicates a problem with the RPS (Rotational Speed Sensor)
that monitors the motor speed.
This issue has been identified as relating to the the connection system between the RPS and the controller.

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.
