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.

3 lights and loud beeping


When you start your machine is the water just go stop go stop,
Just wait for the machine to display an error code on the wash progress lights and beeps constantly.
It could be the Rotor Position Sensor, out of balance switch or lid magnetic reed switch.
Your error code will determine this.
Is your machine beeping & showing a weird pattern of lights on the wash cycle, It is displaying an error code,
To read this error code you start at the red spin light & work to the left only add up the lights that are on. Red spin light = 1 2nd rinse light =2 1st rinse light =4 last wash light=8 4th wash light=16 3rd wash light=32 2nd wash light=64 1st wash light=128

Pride 5.5 washing machine. Our washing machine stopped (during one of the wash cycles I think) and started to give a single beep every second and all the wash lights were illuminated.


Hi just read your posting.Can you advance the machine to a spin cycle?Or are all the controls frozen?Try advancing the machine to a spin cycle and push start then reply back and let me know what the machine does.Looking forward to your reply.Sounds like a lid switch fault.

The machine stops on spin cycle and beeps when it is empty.


Hi just read your posting.Now when the machine is beeping an error code will be displayed.If your machine has an LCD display it will appear in it.If your machine has no LCD display then a series of lights will light up when the machine is beeping.These lights that are lit when the machine is beeping will be in a row of 8 lights,Starting from the left to right which lights are lit when the machine is beeping, is it the 1st and 3rd or the 4th and 7th ---etc---?Please reply with additional information and I am sure I can help you rectify this fault.Looking forward to your reply.

I have a GWL11 Fisher Paykel washer. It was running fine then it was beeping and had stopped-- the spin light was the only one left on, although water is in it. Basin looks lower than I recall. It won't...


Hi just read you posting.Now when the machine was beeping was the spin light the only light that was on while it was beeping?If this is the case then my manual tells me your Motor Controller is faulty and needs replacing.Please confirm which light was on when the machine was beeping because the motor controller module is not cheap.Looking forward to your reply.

A 51 code idicates a diverter valve fault turn the power off at the machine but leave it on at the wall ,then measur the volts across the wax actuator.If a reading of 230 volts is achieved the motor control module has failed due to the valve & both will need to be replaced. Kind Regards Stefan

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.
