F51 error code is beacause the computer board did not receive input from the motor on the bottom. Unplug the washer, pull the machine forward and tilt the machine back. On the bottom you will see a large white wheel with a silver allen screw in the middle I think it is a 6mm allen wrech that takes it off. Once you remove the screw and drop the white wheel, there will be a large coil of wires with 4 5/16 screws holding it on, remove these screws and drop the coils. On the right hand side you will see a connector with three wires , unplug it. Use sand paper or a scraping tool to clean all 3 male sides of the connectors. Reverse process to re-assemble.

Kenmore elite f 51 code


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.
  • Sponsored Links
Prevention/Solution
  • Check around the inner washer and underneath for any lost clothes or jammed objects. This can be anything from toys to shoes.
Considerations
  • If there are no objects, your washer parts may need to be cleaned or replaced. Call Kenmore at 800-4-MY-Home to talk to a service representative and find out about replacement parts.
Types
  • Along with "F51", error codes "F1" and "F50" could mean the same thing. Check for these error codes and follow the same procedure with your washer.

I have a Kenmore Elite top loading washing machine that gives me the error code F51 incessantly. Any idea what this means?


The F-51 error code on this washer indicates that the machine control board in the console detects a motor RPS (Rotor Position Sensor -- tachometer) failure. This can be caused by a number of different problems. You could have a bad RPS sensor, a failed motor, a wire harness connection problem or an item stuck between the spin basket and the outer tub that is interfering with spin basket rotation. A water filling problem could also cause this code to be displayed since the basket would have excessive friction if water is not entering the machine properly. With the washer off, spin the basket to see if it rotates freely. If you detect resistance or suspect that an item is stuck between the basket and the outer tub, you will likely need to remove the basket and check this area.

F-51 code on kenmore elite oasis washer - how to prevent and or fix


Please see the following Whirlpool Cabrio installation and service manual, the Oasis is essentially the same washer.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/409753510a90c8be852571e90073421b/$FILE/8178583.pdf

The F and 51 code relates to the motor rotor.

"F then 51 flashes when there is a motor rotor position sensor (RPS) failure. See TEST #3."

The "test #3 is a bit complicated but can be completed if you are reasonably comfortable with test equipment.

Was getting the f 51 code, now d 5 code. its a kenmore elite oasis canyon top load washer.


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.
