Question about Washing Machines
I reciently tried to fix my oasis kenmore elite he model 110.27062603. I researched on this website (fixYa) and learned that the f 51 code is related to the motor rotor position sensor which sences the motors speed and if it is spinning OK. I read some post describing how the connection to the RPS sensor could be worn or coroded or loose. one of the chats on this subject described how to take the sensor out (which is not that difficult if you are a handy person. (It involves taking the motor appart). So, I followed the instructions and took it out and re-assembled it. Stiil had the same problem. I decided to try changing the macine motor control (the computer for the wasing machine) I still had the same f 51 problem. Then I bought a new RPS sensor, and that didn't work either. Finally I kept trying to figure out how to open the top of the clothes washer to look for stuck clothing between the stationionary drum that holds the water and the rotating drum. Someone had described opening the top, but I didn't know how to do this. I did a search on google on how to remove the drum, and there was a photo of the place to pry to open the top of the washer. there are 2 tabs that you have to press in on while lifting up on the top. use a putty knife or a flat screw driver. the place to press is from the outside, on the front of the washer, about 6 inches from each corner.
So, I opened the top cover of the washer, and then was able to un- snap the plastic cover over the drum and I found a bra that was causing enough friction between the drums that it would cause the RPS sensor to think there was a problem.
So, Now the machine works fine again.
