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.

I have code 51 flashing. Where is the air bag diagnostic module located?


Hi, the code 51 flashing means that the internal fuse is blown and the short to ground is no longer present. If the short to ground returns, the code will change to 13 (air back circuit shorted to ground) or 14 (primary crash sensor circuit shorted to ground), but it will only flash 13 or 14 when the short is present. If the code remains 51, then first find and repair short before replacing the diagnostic monitor (what people call air bag module).
Take care

F-51 code on kenmore elite oasis washer - how to prevent and or fix


Please see the following Whirlpool Cabrio installation and service manual, the Oasis is essentially the same washer.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/409753510a90c8be852571e90073421b/$FILE/8178583.pdf

The F and 51 code relates to the motor rotor.

"F then 51 flashes when there is a motor rotor position sensor (RPS) failure. See TEST #3."

The "test #3 is a bit complicated but can be completed if you are reasonably comfortable with test equipment.

Cabrio washer is giving an F 51 Code


The "F51" error code is common problem with the Cabrio. This is an RPS sensor error. The sensor is mounted along the motor windings under the washer and detects the rotation spin speed. The sensors on these units can go bad, causing the error code, and it has been a frequent problem. I would recommend you contact Whirlpool first (due to the unit only being a year old) and see if there is a recall or upgrade on this part. I believe there is. The repair would then be covered by the manufacturer. If I give you the steps to access and/or replace the sensor at this point, you may be voiding any existing warranty you may still have. Some components carry a longer warranty than your normal one year limited warranty from the manufacturer. Something you may consider.

If you have further questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you in some way.

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.
