F#code keeps flashing on washer did what manual says to do but nothing changes can you help

The "F1" error code on a Whirlpool Cabrio washer means that the machine control assembly has failed and you must replace it. Order a new assembly from a Whirlpool parts dealer. The "F2" troubles code means that a key on the user interface or keypad is stuck. Look at each key and try to unstick it. Always hit the "Pause/Cancel" button to try and erase the error code. Try restarting the load.

Washer stops and F 51 flashs

Hello, It is a rotor position sensor code. The control is no longer receiving a signal from the motor. It can be a failed sensor or control, but usually it is a bad connection where the wires plug on to the sensor.

F then 51 flashes when there is a motor rotor position sensor (RPS) failure.
It can also be a defective control board false reporting an error which is common on these models.

F-51 code on Cabrio Washer

usually this means you have a bad rps sensor that is attached to your motor. when you lifted the lid you should have seen the tech sheet it is attached inside the cabinet in the front. this should help you. the rps sensor has i believe 3 wires attached to it with a quick disconnect. let me know if this helps.

➔ Does basket turn freely? If not, determine cause of friction.
➔ If basket turns freely, see TEST #3, Page 10.
the above link is for code 51, very similar. the quite above is from the PDF manual. I just solved this problem on my machine. turned out it was clothing between the 2 baskets. Others have had bad control boards, or bad sensors
