Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. OE is a drain error, it flashes when the washer won’t drain within 10 minutes. TO resolve this issue you’ll have to check the drain pump filter for any clogs, also check the drain hose for any kinks and clean the drain pump filter. If still the issue is not resolved then you might have to replace the pump. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

My cabrio washer stops washing mid cycle and code F51 appears


This is copied and pasted info but figured it might help with any further questions. Basically if you have a f51 tilt the machine back and look for any burnt, loose, or cut wires. If all that looks fine order the part number listed at the bottom of this post.


Model # WTW6200SW0, this top load washer would intermittently display an error message during a wash cycle requiring the load to be started again after clearing the display. The problem was infrequent at the beginning, but continued to get worse with time. After trying different sized loads thinking there may be some correlation, the customer finally called for service to get it fixed.

The F51 error is a RPS (rotary position sensor) board failure where the control board looses contact with the RPS during the machines operation. The RPS uses hall effect sensors to determine the speed and direction of the drive motor, allowing the control board to constantly monitor the motors operation. Because this error is a communication error and not a mechanical error with the motor itself (that would be and F52 error) we can limit our trouble shooting to the three items that make up the RPS circuit, the control board, the wiring harness, and the RPS itself.



Looking at the wiring diagram for the RPS circuit, we will find a wiring harness consisting of brown wires connecting to the top of the control board. From here, we can test for our output voltage on pin 6. As long as we have our 15vdc on this pin, that indicates the control board is working. Our next stop is under the machine to locate the RPS board.



Tipping the machine back will reveal the motor directly underneath the tub. The RPS board is mounted on the right side (follow the brown wires) and under the motors rotor disk. An Allen wrench is used to remove the rotor and then the four bolts holding the motor stator to the tub can be removed. Once the motor is out, we can get to the RPS and the wiring harness and do a continuity check on each wire between each end of the harness. If our readings indicate a good harness, we are down to the RPS itself and it would need to be replaced. Of course there is one other thing to do, and that is make sure the connection from the harness to the board is good.

Many of these boards were manufactured with a clear lacquer being applied to the boards to protect the wire traces, and unfortunately, many of the contacts themselves became covered. This results in a poor connection to the harness connector and provides for an poor intermittent signal to the control board. To repair this unit, I removed the RPS board and using my jewelers file, cleaned the contacts for proper electrical connection. Once everything was reassembled, it ran two complete diagnostic cycles without a hiccup. And now the customer can get some laundry done without restarting the machine.

Fisher Paykell error - mw051-u


Your fault code is unknown,
Try these.
130. (10000010) Single Rotor Position Sensor Error
The Motor Control Module has found an error in the pattern received from the Rotor
Position Sensor. Likely causes of this fault are a bad connection on the harness between
the Rotor Position Sensor and the Motor Control Module, or a faulty Rotor Position Sensor.
Primary Source: Wiring.
Action: Check for corrosion on the RAST connector of the Rotor Position
Sensor and the Motor Control Module connector.
Secondary Source: Rotor Position Sensor.
Action: Check the Rotor Position Sensor with an R.P.S. tester. Replace if
faulty.
Tertiary Source: Motor Control Module.
Action: Replace Motor Control Module.
Quaternary Source: Rotor
Action: Ensure the correct rotor for this phase of machine has been fitted

136. (10001000) Motor Stall
The Motor Control Module has been unable to start the motor. Possible causes of this fault
are: Faulty motor harness, faulty or jammed motor, seized bearings or seals, faulty Motor
Control Module, faulty Rotor Position Sensor or harness.
Primary Source: Wiring.
Action: Measure/check the motor harness, connectors and motor for
discontinuity. This can be done by taking a resistance measurement
between phases of the motor harness at the Motor Control Module
end. If an incorrect reading is obtained the reading should be taken
directly from the stator.
Secondary Source: Motor.
Action: 1) Check free rotation of the agitator and bowl by rotating by hand.
Bearings and seals may be seized.
2) Check the Rotor Position Sensor and associated harness for
water, mechanical damage or corrosion.
Tertiary Source: Motor Control Module.
Action: If the primary and secondary checks pass inspection, then replace
the Motor Control Module.

LE light is displaying and there is a metal on metal sound when it tries to spin after a rinse. Drum wont spin


It is a locked motor error. One of the following is causing the problem but you may need the help of a qualified appliance technician:
  • The connector (3-pin, male, white) in the motor harness is not connected to the connector (3-pin, female, white) of the stator assembly. Connect them properly.

  • The electrical contacts between the connectors (3-pin, male, white) in the motor harness and 4-pin, female, white connector in the main board assembly is bad or unstable. Trace the motor harness back to the main board. Clean the connectors and connect them properly.
  • The motor harness between the stator assembly and main board assembly is cut or open. Reconnect or rewire.
  • Motor winding is defective. Check the resistance between the terminals of the stator. Resistance should be between 5 to 10 ohms, otherwise replace the stator. Refer to the illustration above for the stator removal.
  1. Disassemble the back cover.
  2. Remove the large bolt on the center shaft. Ask your helper to hold the inside of the drum.
  3. Pull out the rotor out of the shaft.
  4. Remove the 2 screws from the tub bracket.
  5. Remove the 6 bolts on the stator.
  6. Unplug the 2 connectors on the stator.
  7. Pull the stator out of the tub.

  • The hall sensor is out of order/defective. It is located at the stator assembly. If the hall sensor is out of order, it cannot detect magnetic field and the main board sees it as the rotor is locked then displaying the error code. Replace it if no evidence of defect is found above.

Machine stops & flashes F 51


The F51 fault code on these types of washers indicates that the machine control board detects an RPS (Rotor Position Sensor) failure. This sensor is on the motor at the bottom of the washer.
Here is the troubleshooting for the F51 fault code:
  • Do not overload the washer. Overloading can cause this fault code.
  • Check underneath the washer for any clothes or toys that could be under the washer and obstructing the motor from turning freely. This can occur because there is not a cover on the bottom of the Washer.
  • Using too little water by choosing the wrong cycle for the type of load being washed can cause this fault code.
  • Make sure that your drain hose is properly installed per your installation instructions. Siphoning of fill water out of the washer can cause tub resistance and will result in this fault code.
  • Lift the lid and reach in and make sure that the basket turns freely. If not, you could have garments stuck between the two baskets or a problem with the basket hub. Any abnormal resistance to tub movement can cause this fault.
  • Unplug the washer. Make sure that both the Control Board Connectors P5 (Motor Wires, red, blue and yellow), and the P10 (RPM Sensor Wires, 7 brown wires) are securely plugged into the Control Board.
  • Remove the (P5) Motor Connector from the Control Board and take a resistance reading between the 3 combinations of motor wires (red/blue, red/yellow and blue/yellow). It should read around 32 ohms on the Motor Windings between any of the 3 pins on the harness. NOTE: If you do not get the proper resistance reading on the motor harness at the board, check the reading at the motor end. If you get a good reading replace the upper or Lower Harness whichever is defective. If the reading is still bad when checked directly off of the motor, then you will need to replace the motor. (See notes below for motor access.)
  • Unplug the P10 connector and take a resistance reading between the two outside pins (1 and 7). It should read between 600 and 21.6K ohms. *NOTE: (If it reads open you will need to pull the Rotor and Stator so you can check it right at the RPS Sensor. If it reads good at the sensor replace the Lower, or Upper Harness whichever is open).
  • To access the motor and RPS sensor, lean the washer back against the wall. Secure the washer with blocks if needed. Remove the rotor (1-bolt), and the stator (4-bolts). When you pull the rotor off, check to make sure that the thin plastic beads that run between each magnet on the rotor is intact and in place. This could cause an F51 code as it will no longer separate the poles of the magnet for the sensor to read them properly.
  • Check your wiring connections on the motor and the RPS sensor. Unplug and then plug the wiring harness connections back in on these components 5 or 6 times. This will normally scrape through any possible corrosion or deposits on the connections. Tug slightly on the connections when they are inserted for the final time to make sure that they are secure.
  • Reassemble the washer .

Hope this helps .

Cabrio whirlpool washer


you could clean the rps sensor with rubbing alcohol. tip machine back, remove the rotor with al allen wrench. remove the (4) 5/16" bolts holding the stator on, carefully unclip the rps sensor. (Rotor Position Sensor). Remove the wire clip and clean the contacts. Reassemble and give it a try. Or have your dealer ( unless its sears as they WILL NOT help you, call yourself, 800-253-1301) and see if they will give you a one time goodwill gesture to their customer and cover it under warranty. If cleaning doesn't help you need the control board, wire harness, and rps sensor replaced. the rps sensor should come with the new harness. Whirlpool may cover parts????? hope this helps

LG TROMM WM 2077CW LE Error


An LE error is a locked rotor. The hall sensor on the stator part of the motor is not sensing the rotor part of the motor is turning. So the short version is you need a new stator(which has the sensor on it or just the sensor) replaced which should have a 5 year warranty on it so call LG for your nearest authorized service center

Error message displayed on LG tromm washer model # wmt2778w


Flashing UE - The display shows:
• Load is too small.
• Load is out of balance.
• The washer has an imbalance detection and correction system. If individual heavy articles are loaded (bath mat, bath robe, etc.) and the imbalance is too great, the washer will make several attempts to restart the spin cycle. If an imbalance is still detected, the washer will stop and the error code will be
displayed.

Possible Solution
• Add 1 or 2 similar items to help balance the load.
• Rearrange items to help balance the load.
• Control error.
