Re: F 51. I know its a fault.

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.

I ran the diagnostic on my fisher and paykel gwl 11 and it has a fault code 51. Is that more than just a diverter value?

This is error code 51
51. (00110011) Phase 5 and 6 Eco - Diverter Valve Fault
Primary: The motor controller has registered a drop in water level in the
recirculation phase of the wash cycle, water is being drained instead of recirculated.
Or water has been sprayed onto the Valve from an external source and caused the
solenoid to blow.
Turn the power off at the machine but leave the power on at the wall, then measure
the voltage across the terminals of the wax actuator, if a reading of 230V is
achieved the motor controller has failed due to the valve and both will need to be
Secondary: Check for blockage in the valve itself or a broken hinge mechanism.

Washing machine comes up with code fault 51. Could you please explain?

Hi just read your posting.The error code you have indicated is called RECIRCULATION FAULT.This means that when your machine is on the recirculation mode it is losing water.Please look under the machine for me to confirm which pump style you have in your model of machine.If you see a black fan to the front right you have the older style.Please reply and let me know if you have the older pump or newer pump.If you have the new style of pump then you will not have the black fan.This information will help me guide you in rectifying this fault.Looking forward to your reply.

What does fault code 51 mean?

Error code 51 usually means a faulty diverter valve. Try and run a wash cycle, and observe the drain hose. If water comes out, the diverter valve should be fine, if no water comes out you should take your diverter valve out and check for debris, or continue to read through the following possibilities of why your washing machine is acting up, and the actions to take.

1. Diverter valve
Action - Check diverter valve continuity. If open circuit, replace diverter valve.

2. Motor Controller Board (drive circuitry blown).
Action - Replace Motor Controller Board
3. Diverter valve harness/connectors.
Action - Replace wiring harness

Washer shows the code "F" 51. I looked in the book and it just said if I hit cancel and it comes back to call for Repair. What does it mean though?

It is very common on this washer.Basically the F51 error is
due to the rotor position sensor error.The two parts realy needs
to be replaced.
1.rotor sensor itself
2.the control board

F-51 code on Cabrio Washer

usually this means you have a bad rps sensor that is attached to your motor. when you lifted the lid you should have seen the tech sheet it is attached inside the cabinet in the front. this should help you. the rps sensor has i believe 3 wires attached to it with a quick disconnect. let me know if this helps.

Fisher&Paykel Intuitive eco IWL 16 Auto washer Fault code 51

Our washer did the same but it was after I took the excess drain hose and pushed it into the drain in the wall. I thought it looked "more tidy" In doing so I created a siphon effect. Once I pulled the excess hose back out it was fine.

Washer full and then stops and gives a beep while flashing F 51

On Kenmore F51 means Motor RPS Failure, the motor is not spinning or the motor sensor detects a fault.First unplug the power cord for one hour or so to check if it is a jammed sensor, and see if reset.
