What is Technical Fault 51?


The most common reason for this code is :-

F51 error is caused by a faulty or blocked heater pressure switch. It is not a job for an unqualified person.

"The program is interrupted and the drain pump is operated. The display shows Technical fault F51. Call Service Department. The buzzer is activated for 2 minutes. "

What is f51


On some machines the F51 is a slow or long drain error. Possibly a clogged filter in the drain pump or a bad pump. You did not provide enough information for me to offer any more help. I do not know the washer type, manufacturer, age, or model.

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 :)

When dishwasher turned on 3 yellow bars light up and indicator shows f51


Hi,

F51 Refers to Pressure Switch not Sensing Properly. First, you need to Power OFF the dishwasher. Wait for Few Minutes and then Turn it ON. If problem still persists, more often you need to replace Pressure Switch.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Kenmore elite toploader code f51


The F51 error code indicates that the control is not sensing proper motor movement through the signals from the RPS (rotor position sensor) circuit. This can be caused by several different problems. Make sure that you are not overloading the washer. Overloading can cause this problem. A toy or foreign object could be under the washer that is interfering with motor rotation. With the washer empty, spin the basket inside the washer tub to see if it spins relatively easily. If not, you could an item caught between the spin basket and the tub. You could have a wire harness problem causing signals to not be transmitted properly between the RPS and the machine control board. A failed RPS sensor or a failed control board could also cause this problem.
