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.

F51 maytag bravo error code?


The F 51 code, would indicate, the control board is not seeing the proper resistance on the motor circuit .

You should check and make sure there are not any articles, stuck between the tubs, or under the agitator.

Make sure you're not overloading the machine.and you have proper voltage to the unit.

Have you run the unit through a cycle empty ?

You may want to try that, before we have to get too involved in circuit and voltage tests.

Your technical data sheet should be on the inside of the front panel, you'll need to raise the top of the washer, using a putty knife to release the clips in the front seam, holding the top down .

My washer is constantly showing 5d. What does that mean?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error 5d means too much detergent was used. Try the following procedure---

Run the unit through a RINSE/SPIN cycle.
Run a NORMAL cycle without adding any detergent.

This should clear the unit of the excess detergent. If still the problem persists, then please check the following things--



1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check drain pump.
7. Check the pressure switch.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle.



Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.



Thanks

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

IT SAYS F51 ON THE DISPLAY IT DOES NOT LET MY WASHING CYCLE FINISH


You have the F51 code. The reason could be due to an intermittent connection at the rotor position sensor (RPS). To correct this, remove and install the the connector at the rotor position sensor (plug and unplug) at least three times to clean off any corrosion build up on the connector or the rotor position sensor due to the intermittent connection.

Confirm that the connector is fully seated onto the rotor position sensor upon final connection and verify that there are no damaged wires. The electronic control unit may have to be replaced, since the upgraded version is less sensitive to intermittent RPS connections.

Sure hope this helps you and best wishes.

Basket Re-engagement Failure.

F then 72 flashes when the basket check routine fails to determine if the basket is re-engaged after being disengaged.
Is the basket floating? If yes, pump out water. See Long Drain.
Does basket turn freely? If not, determine cause of friction.

Error Code F - 11


F11 is a serial communications error that is associated with , central control unit (main computer) or associated wiring and the washer works intermittently . Just to be sure you will need to check all your wiring connections going to the central control unit To access follow these steps:

1. Unplug the washer.
2. Remove the three 7mm screws holding the top panel on. They are located along the top edge in the back of the washer. Once the screws are removed the top panel will slide back then lift up.
3. The Central Control Unit (CCU) is located in the central rear of the washer. You can't miss it. Make sure all the connections are plugged in snugly. Check ONE connection at a time.

After checking wiring harness, run systems diagnostics test by performing the following:

The diagnostics will run through a series of tests to include FILL, AGITATE, DRAIN and SPIN functions. , . You can push PAUSE/CANCEL any time to end diagnostics. Run this test several times. If anything fails you will get an "F" code in the display window. If the tests all pass, the unit will shut off, followed by an audible "beep" and the CLEAN light indicator will be lit. If you get successful results, then you know you probably had a loose wire somewhere. If the test fails, I would attempt to replacet the CCU. The CCU can cost as much as $220 depending on where you get it.
