During the agitation of wash cycle a F 51 or S1, not sure, error code shows & stops. I push pause & then start & it will start working again.
Sometimes it works & finishes other times I...
The F51 error code says the part on the motor called the rotor position sensor has failed
this is the test procude that must be performed to see if it or another part is bad (as taken directly from the cabrio (online) service manual)
TEST #3 Motor Circuit
This test checks the wiring to the motor and rotor position sensor; and the motor and rotor position sensor themselves. NOTE: Drain water from tub.
1. See Activation of Manual Diagnostic Test Mode, and check the motor and electrical connections by performing the Agitate and Spin tests under Manual: Motor. The following steps assumes that this stepfailed.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check to see if basket will turn freely. If basket turns freely, go to step 4. If basket does not turn freely, determine what is causing the mechanical
friction or lock up.
4. Remove the console to access the machine/ motor control assembly. See Accessing& Removing the Electronic Assemblies.
5. Visually check that the P5 and P10 connectors are inserted all the way into the machine/motor control. If visual checks pass, go to step 6.
If visual checks fail, reconnect P5 and P10 and repeat step 1.
6. With an ohmmeter, check for 16 ohms resistance at the P5 connector between pins P5-1 and P5-2, and also between pins P5-1 and P5-3. Also measure the resistance at the P10 connector between pins P10-1 and P10-7 and verify that the resistance is within the range shown in the wiring diagram on page 7-1.
If the resistance is correct, go to step 11. If the P5 connector resistance is much higher than 16 ohms, or the P10 connector resistance is out of range, go to
7. Tilt machine forward to access the bottom of the machine and the drive motor area. See Figure 1 on page 6-13. Remove the motor bolt, then the motor cover to access the motor connections. See Figure 2 on page 6-13.
8. Visually check the mounting bracket and electrical connections to the motor and rotor position sensor board. If visual check passes, go to step 9.
If visual check fails, reconnect the electrical connections, reassemble stator and motor cover and repeat step 1.
9. With an ohmmeter, check for continuity between all pins on the P10 machine/motor control connector and the motor rotor position sensor (RPS) connector. See Figures 2 and 4, pages 6-13 and 6-16. If there is continuity, go to step 11. If there is no continuity, replace the lower machine harness.
10. With an ohmmeter, check for continuity between all pins on the P5 machine/motor control connector and the drive motor connector. If there is continuity, replace the drive motor. If there is no continuity, replace the lower machine harness.
11. The drive motor and lower harness are good. Replace the motor RPS board and perform the Diagnostics test in step 1 to verify repair.
12. If the Diagnostics motor test in step 1 failed, then the machine/motor control has failed: Unplug the washer or disconnect power. Replace the machine/motor control assembly. Perform the Motor Diagnostics in step 1 to verify repair
At one point it refers to TEST#1 and thats this;
TEST #1 Supply Connections
This test assumes that proper voltage is present at the outlet.
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Access the machine/motor control assembly. See Accessing & Removing the Electronic Assemblies.
3. With an ohmmeter, check for continuity between the neutral (N) terminal of the plug and P13-1 on the machine/motor control.
See Figures 3 and 4, page 6-16. If there is continuity, go to step 4. If there is no continuity, replace the power cord.
4. In a similar way, check the continuity between the L1 terminal of the plug and P13-3 on the machine/motor control. See
Figures 3 and 4, page 6-16. If there is continuity, go to step 5. If there is no continuity, replace the power cord.
5. Visually check that the P10 connector is inserted all the way into the machine/motor control.
6. Visually check that the user interface assembly is properly inserted into the front console.
7. If both visual checks pass, replace the user interface assembly. See Reinstalling the Electronic Assemblies.
8. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
9. Activate the Console and Indicators Diagnostic Test mode to verify repair.
10. If indicators still do not light, the machine/ motor control has failed: Unplug washer or disconnect power. Replace the machine/motor control assembly.
Plug in washer or reconnect power
SO AS YOU CAN SEE ITS QUITE INVOLVED AND I RECOMMEND YOU CALL FOR SERVICE UNLESS YOUR MECHANICALLY INCLIDED AND THIS MAKES SENSE TO YOU
