Question about Washing Machines
The fault code is 51 and it signifies a diverter valve fault. The Motor Controller Module has detected a drop in water level in the recirculation phase, water is being drained instead of recirculated. Check for blockage in the diverter valve itself or a broken hinge mechanism. Check the resistance of the diverter valve solenoid which is between 700 and 2500 ohms when good and approximately 100 VAC is supplied across its terminals. Check also the wiring connections of the diverter valve to the Motor Controller Module. You may have to replace both the diverter valve and Motor Controller Module when the former has failed especially when water is sprayed onto the valve from an external source and caused the solenoid to blow.
