F51 code on an Oasis Washing machine

Do you have any other suggestions on the infamous F51 code? A repair that will actually complete the fix? Do you always have to replace the whole circuit board? How can I tell for sure? Position sensor or both? If I buy all of the parts I will have over $250 into this repair.... I might as well buy a new machine without electronic controls! I got rid of an 18 year old machine to buy this latest and greatest and it is only 1 1/2 years old!!! WTF!

    My machine is less than 2 years old and have had the board replaced twice, and I paid $1000.00 for this frickin thing and wasted 2 days for the repair guys because Sears only gives you a 4 hour window. If I see an F-51 code again I'm going to cart this machine down to my local Sears store and burn it in their parking lot!

Beddy60, It's not necessary to replace the control board with the F-51 code. I take it you have removed the stator and motor and scraped the sensor and the code is still returning. Make sure first that you have nothing caught between the tub and basket that is slowing the basket. I have found socks and towels that caused this fault. In the worst case senerio you will have to change the sensor and possibly the harness. The harness will come from the main board down to the motor. You remove the back of the unit to do this. It is not hard to do, just allow yourself the time and observe as you remove the old harness. Catriver.

I had a problem with washing kenmore oasis he 110.27062600 it came on sd, f51 codes when it reaches to spin. clothes didn't dry .


Hello, welcome to FixYa.
The scenario you describe is usually associated with a item stuck under the tub or a loose stator or a faulty "RPS" device or connection at the "RPS"...but I don't know if you checked that yet or if you know how, thus the error F51.
As I mentioned the F51 is usually associated with the rotor and stator/RPS assembly and quiet often it is initiated due to a loose rotor or bad RPS...I'd start by checking the bolt.

There is a repair tip regarding this from sears which suggest checking the wires to the RPS and then the rotor, while insuring the center bolt is really tight via applying some "lock tight".

I actually see a lot of these and most times it's a loose rotor bolt. Here's an exert from my files directly from sears...(I'm privy to them from being a Sears tech.)

You may want to check the rotor, I've seen the center bolt become extremely loose, thus causing the F51 error, this where and what to look for shown below...

...but either way let me know how you make out with the repairs and good luck.

F51 error


Hello, the F51 code is a motor rotor position sensor failure. It's best to call in the warranty service as there is a bunch of tests that need to be run to determine if it's the sensor or control board. If the tech wasn't any help, contact the store for a replacement.

Thanks

Whirlpool washing machine - F51 code


F51 - This is a motor Rotation Positioning Sensor failure. If this persists you will eventually need to call in a service engineer to repair it as the machine will eventually stop working altogether.

F51 code


From experience, I know this is an Oasis. F-51 can be caused by a fauly main control, a bad wiring harness or something stuck between the basket and tub. There is a recall going on with these, you might want to look into.

Piece if **** washing machine and dryer kenmore elite oasis


I called sears recall dept 1 888-548- 1509 told to make a service call about F problem and if that is the cause your charge for service call will be refunded and a new control board installed at known charge.The 27082 is not on the recall list yet but sears is aware of this condition.Don't give up just keep calling and ask that a copy of your call and complaint be forward to your address ,sears receives numerous call's each day about F1 control boards.

Cal them your self now and see if they will do this repair 1 888-548- 1509
