Question about Kenmore Elite Oasis 27052 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

F 51 - what does that mean? The washer stops 20 times at least durning one load of wash, it is less than 3 years old. I have tried unplugging it and then re-setting by pressing the stop button twice. Is there an easy fix or do I have to wait for service.

You have the F51 code. The reason could be due to an intermittent connection at the rotor position sensor (RPS). To correct this, remove and install the the connector at the rotor position sensor at least three times to clean off any corrosion build up on the connector or the rotor position sensor due to the intermittent connection.

Confirm that the connector is fully seated onto the rotor position sensor upon final connection and verify that there are no damaged wires. The electronic control unit may have to be replaced, since the upgraded version is less sensitive to intermittent RPS connections.

Sure hope this helps you and best wishes.

Whirlpool Duet stopped during wash cycle.


UNPLUG THE WASHER AND TAKE THE 3 SCREWS THAT ARE ON THE BACK OF THE WASHER OUT AND REMOVE THE TOP PANEL OF THE WASHER. CAREFULLY UNPLUG AND REPLUG IN THE WIRING SO THAT U WONT GET THEM MIXED UP. DO ALL OF THEM, FIRMLY BUT GENTLY. THEN HOLD IN THE SIGNAL CYLCE LITE FOR 3 SECONDS. TRY TO RUN A LOAD AND SEE IF THAT WORKS. IT DID FOR US, SO FAR SO GOOD. GOOD LUCK!!

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.

3 audible beeps every 20-25 seconds


Try unplugging the washer for about 20 minutes then plug back in and use. I have found that this actually works! The only thing I can figure out is that it takes time for the electronic control to clear. If that doesn't fix the problem I would call sears tech since it is less than a year old. They have a 1-2 year warranty.
