It shows what the codes mean. It's been fixed by people (when machines are out of warranty!) by taking the control panel, and reseating wires on it and the motor.

You are by no means the only having the problem:

I have a Maytag Bravos washing machine that has just recently become really noisy when it goes into high speed spin. I have lifted the cover and found no items or debris. When I spin the tub by hand it...


F51 is motor position sensor error. From manual:

F51: Motor RPS Failure
F then 51 flashes when there is a motor rotor position sensor (RPS) failure or lower harness problem.

The motor position sensor failure may be the result of a problem between basket and motor.The parts below the basket must be inspected. There is need to remove the basket to check parts in there. I can give you the procedure to remove the basket if you want.

My Maytag 300 quite series has a code F51 what does this mean?

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly The F51 code is a motor rotor position sensor (RPS) feedback error. In other words the control board is not sensing any motor rotation. It is fixable but will result in the replacement of failed parts. (Sensor or electronic control board) The control board is not cheap. Hopefully you only have a failed sensor.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

My maytag bravos shows a F51 on the display?

RPS failure.
This happens when overuse of detergent causes the motor to over work itself.
