F51 error is a rotor position sensor error, two parts really need to be replaced. 1) the rotor sensor itself ($43) and 2) the control board ($197)

As with most things electronic, when you unplug them for 15-30 seconds, they reset themselves to factory defaults. We did this with our Cabrio washer when it displayed code F 51, because the code F 51 indicates a loss of communication between the control panel and the motor position.

This does not necessarily mean one part or the other is bad; it could be as simple as a loss of communication betweeeen the two parts. Unplugging the unit required the electronics to go searching for each other an re-establish communication. Problem solved!

Had the code reappeared after unplugging to reset the communication between the sensor and the control panel, the next step would be to get into the machine to wiggle and reseat the connectors which could have vibrated loose. I would also use a spray electronics cleaner to clean the fragile and inaccessible contacts.

If the code persisted after that replacing the motor sensor or control panel (or both) is the only option.

Whirlpool cabrio WTW6700TW1 only fills little bit, won't turn or agitate, buzz sound/humming noise,code F51 flashes??


The F51 error is a RPS (rotary position sensor) board failure where the control board looses contact with the RPS during the machines operation. The RPS uses hall effect sensors to determine the speed and direction of the drive motor, allowing the control board to constantly monitor the motors operation. Because this error is a communication error and not a mechanical error with the motor itself (that would be and F52 error) we can limit our trouble shooting to the three items that make up the RPS circuit, the control board, the wiring harness, and the RPS itself.

My cabrio is displaying F51 what is this


I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old man who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. If you google whirlpool cabrio error code F51, you'll get an idea of what you are up against. This is obviously a manufacturer's defect. They should take care of this problem whether you are in warranty or not. If you are insistent, maybe they will. Contact whirlpool directly if you're not satisfied by your local service people. This is not a DIY job.
Good luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.
