    I have had the same problem with my washer....started one month after the warranty expired! They are willing to offer me to buy an extended warranty for over $200. I checked on the price of the RPS assembly, and it only cost about $32 at Sears, however, they as well as ever other appliance repair center on the internet is back-ordered. I have read time and time again how so many people have this error code now. It takes me about 8-10 times to clear and restart my washer to get a load complete!

    Does anyone know how to go about seeking for a recall on this product? It seems with so many people out there getting the same code...it must be a malfunction from the makers.

    I am having the same problem with the F1 code at start up then a F51 code during th cycle. It took Sears 2 weeks to get here and they were supposed to come back with the part, but after a week told me the part was back ordered and won't be available until March15th. Can I fix this myself?

Suz, F51 is a rotor position failure code. Try unplugging the unit for 1 minute and then restart. I see a lot of this on the Oasis. You should be able to turn the basket freely by hand. If not have someone check to see if something is caught between the tub and basket. If that is ok, then someone will have to check the sensor itself. This can be a tough job for someone who hasn't done it before. You have to tip the washer back, drop the rotor and motor to get at the sensor. Sometimes just scraping the contacts on the sensor will cure this problem, sometimes the sensor has to be replaced. If it's under warranty, then I would call for service. If not, and you want to try to fix it yourself, just add me as one of your buddies and I can walk you through it. Catriver.

How di I stop the F:51 from flashing where the time left for a load to be completed stopping the load in the washer to wash, rinse and drain?


If its a Whirlpool machine, F51 has something to do with whats called a rotor position sensor, It tells the machine that the bowl is or isn't turning. Check and make sure the bowl hasn't jammed up.

Error Code
  • Clear the error code and stop the beeping by pressing the "Stop" and "Start" buttons at the same time. Unplug your washer so you can examine the problem.
Function
  • The error code displays because something is wrong with the motor sensor. This can be for a number of reasons. After you clear the code, try washing clothes again and seeing if the error appears. If it does, then you need to take further steps.
  • Sponsored Links
Prevention/Solution
  • Check around the inner washer and underneath for any lost clothes or jammed objects. This can be anything from toys to shoes.
Considerations
  • If there are no objects, your washer parts may need to be cleaned or replaced. Call Kenmore at 800-4-MY-Home to talk to a service representative and find out about replacement parts.
Types
  • Along with "F51", error codes "F1" and "F50" could mean the same thing. Check for these error codes and follow the same procedure with your washer.

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.
