I work for an appliance repair company and I had a recent service call for the same exact situation on this washer. I also know that Rotary Position Sensor is linked to the F-51 error code. I have found that this is not always the case. On this paticular call the F-51 error code was caused by a piece of clothing (sock, wash cloth, etc.) being stuck or jammed between the internal basket and the outer tub. I removed the cloth and the washer ran fine, so give that a check first before you spend the money.

hey there i had a search F then 1 flashes there is a primary control failure. Replace the machine control assembly my best bet would be to call a service center or repair guy to advise you further what to do or even fix it as this will be a ongoing stuff around for you and you dont need that

This is from a service bulletin. This may be of interest to you. There have been many problems with these machines in this area. Anyway, I sympathize and hope this helps. Best wishes.

F1 means the control board is shot. Call whirlpool and they should take care of the parts and labor even though your machine is out of warranty.
