Question about Maytag Bravos Series MVWB850YW 28" Top-Load Washer with 4.6 cu. ft. Capacity, 13 Wash Cycles,
Posted by Anonymous on
Code F51 means there is a problem with the Rotor Position Sensor. This could be something as minor as a bad plug connection. However, there have been many cases of socks or other small garments being flung over the top of the tub rim and getting caught between the metal tub and the plastic tub which contains the water. The "errant" clothing keeps the tub from returning to it's original position thus preventing the Position Sensor from aligning.

The F51 fault code on your Cabrio washer indicates that the control board is not sensing the proper drive motor spin. To clear the fault code, press the Pause/Cancel button.
Make sure that the drain hose is not stuck way down the stand pipe. This can cause siphoning of fill water which will inhibit proper motor rotation.
Check to see if the wash basket spins freely. If it does not, you may have an item of clothing stuck between the outer tub and the inner basket. This restriction in rotation will also cause an F51 fault code.
If these tips do not help you resolve the F51 problem, then you probably have a component failure. Possible failures include: wire harness or wire connection problem between the machine control and the RPS sensor (Rotor Position Sensor), a failed RPS sensor, a failed drive motor, and a failed machine control board.
