The F51 error code indicates that the control is not sensing proper motor movement through the signals from the RPS (rotor position sensor) circuit. This can be caused by several different problems. Make sure that you are not overloading the washer. Overloading can cause this problem. A toy or foreign object could be under the washer that is interfering with motor rotation. With the washer empty, spin the basket inside the washer tub to see if it spins relatively easily. If not, you could an item caught between the spin basket and the tub. You could have a wire harness problem causing signals to not be transmitted properly between the RPS and the machine control board. A failed RPS sensor or a failed control board could also cause this problem.

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Error Code

  • Clear the error code and stop the beeping by pressing the "Stop" and "Start" buttons at the same time. Unplug your washer so you can examine the problem.

Function

  • The error code displays because something is wrong with the motor sensor. This can be for a number of reasons. After you clear the code, try washing clothes again and seeing if the error appears. If it does, then you need to take further steps.

My washer wont spin and the add garment light stays on. Then it starts to beep with F51 or FSl (not sure if it is a 5 or an S) shows up. Doesn't do anything more but beep.


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear code. Press START. If code appears again, read below

Basically, the F51 error is a rotor position sensor error.

What has to be fixed?
Two parts really need to be replaced. 1) the rotor sensor itself ($43) and 2) the control board ($197). Apparently, Whirlpool has yet to officially recall these parts, but there is a new board that has a reduced or no sensitivity to the rotor sensor and thus the problem should be corrected.

Can I fix it myself?
That depends on your level of handy-skills. If you're one who can work on late model foreign cars with ease, then this probably won't be a challenge. But for most amateur handy-"people" this will require a professional.

F51 error


Hello, the F51 code is a motor rotor position sensor failure. It's best to call in the warranty service as there is a bunch of tests that need to be run to determine if it's the sensor or control board. If the tech wasn't any help, contact the store for a replacement.

Thanks

Konica 7145 F-51-2 Error


Code F51-2 at start-up.
Description:
Code F51-2 at start-up.
Solution:
CAUSE: Code F51-2 may be caused by a failed M11 fixing motor. To determine whether or not the motor has failed, use this procedure:
1. Enter the 47 mode (I/O check mode).
2. Input "40".
3. Input multicode "0". If the M11 motor turns, it is good; if it does not turn, the motor has failed.

SOLUTION: Replace the M11 motor (p/n 56AA80072 for 7222/7228/7235 and p/n 56GA73430 for 7145) if it has failed.

hope that help!!!

F50 error code and Whirlpool Cabrio


JUST SPOKE WITH WHIRLPOOL ABOUT THE F-50 CODE. THEY SAID THAT THEY ARE AWARE OF THE PROBLEM AND THEY ARE PAYING TO FIX IT. ALSO THE CONTROLL BOARD AND THE RPS SENSOR MUST BE REPLACED TO FIX THE PROBLEM. THE OWNER MUST CALL WHIRLPOOL, NOT THE TECH, TO GET THEM TO PAY FOR IT. HOPE THIS HELPS.
