A F51 error is cause by a rotational position sensor failure or RPS. The cause of this is a faulty plug at the sensor that jitters under vibration causing incorrect readings. I have worked on about 50 of these machines and have found a kit which cures the problem. The kit is a retrofit so the lower harness has to be replaced but you will be more peaceful for doing it. For 50.53 depending on where you purchase it you can get kit # W10183157. What I will commit you to is first looking and taking photos as this is class 101. We want to note the connections on the sensor, the stator and the 2 pumps on the bottom. On the console back left and right side and middle is a phillips screw to back out until flush with its frame and then pull forward and flip to expose the mcu. First we will concentrate on the motor control unit and how the harness plugs into the unit. I could not get a photo of the motor control unit so here is how we will id the wires.
To id all the wires being replaced first gain access to the rear of the washer after unplugging the unit. We want to remove the back panel to expose the harness that runs down the left side, user looking into back of unit. On the new harness all wire colors are the same except the updated sensor wiring. This is on the right corner of the mcu and the old wires are all brown and the new is multicolor. For the rest I would unplug one and replace with the new until all are plugged in. The rest is following the process down plugging and unplugging every anchor and most important the clear hose for your pressure switch must be firmly attached as the original clips and all. after you have dressed the back side thread the old and then the new harness through the gap between the black drain hose and the tub. Tuck both under the machine and replace the back panel and clips, one metal at top and the plastic assembly where the drain hose pass through then the back panel if you feel confident it is correct. On the next step we need to access the bottom of the machine to finish our job. After tilting back and making notes on where each wire goes old and new paying note that only one pump has a pull back cover and that a special allen wrench is needed for the bolt holding the rotor on the stator. It is easier if you have a bright light and a pad to lay on. I think a 1/4 inch allen key fits the special bolt. After you remove the rotor, translucent plastic with magnets inside we need to lower the stator. There is 4 5/16 bolts with a metal plate and then the stator will drop and have a grey shield on the back to protect the poles and RPS assembly. Now do the plugs as we did the top. The last anchor on the RPS end of the harness does not half to be inserted until we stretched and compared our work with what we saw on the old harness. Reverse the procedure, Shield,stator with metal washer in and out, holding this in place with the washer is easier with a 1/2 tsp. of heavy grease to stabilize the metal washer on the outside as you try to insert the bolts to hold it together with the shield and inside metal washer. Once these are finger tight inspect the harness for correct anchoring and proper wiring. Tighten these 5/16 bolts like putting a tire on a Honda Civic.Now the rotor goes back on the spline, do not force just turn until it is easy and slips in about a 1/2 inch. It slips in from the magnets and once it does tighten the bolt firmly. Now set the machine down and put into a rinse spin cycle and test it

SOURCE: whirlpool cabrio washer spin sounds like a jet now

i am afraid that the noise is ur bearings, give the drum a turn by hand with no washing in it and you will hear and feel a rumble. Dependant on type of washer you can replace the bearing, but sometimes the cost i am afraid is rather high and may be worth purchasing a new appliance.

I hope this helps

Whirlpool cabrio washing machine doesn't spin

Try to turn the drum by hand, if it hard to turn, there may be something stuck underneath spin basket. If it does turn freely but makes a loud growling sound, you probably have a bad bearing. You should notice black oil and water mixture at bottom of washer, on the rotor. It will usually throw a f51 error code. This unit has service bulletin on this problem.

I have a Whirlpool Cabrio Model #WTW6200SW0 A F51 code keeps coming up. I would like to know what that means and what part i need to fix it. My husband does all the repairs on our appliances. Thank You.

well the code means that the tachometer or Rps sensor has detected a spinning problem but i would first push in the top clips on the right and left front corners about an inch in on the front and hinge back top lid remove top plastic cap ring of washer and check for stuck clothing between innertub and outer tub sometimes you will have to remove tub to get all clothes out remove center dome agitator center cap and remove 7/16 bolt pull agitator out the pull inner tub out then extract clothes be very carefull these stainless tubs are very sharp and will cut your hand like a cheese grader
