SOURCE: f51 error code on Maytag Bravo

To correct this, remove and reinstall the connector at the RPS at least three times to clean off any corrosion built up on the connector and RPS due to the intermittent connection. Confirm that the connector is fully seated onto the RPS control upon final connection and verify there are no damaged wires.Replace the electronic control. The upgraded control is less sensitive to intermittent RPS connections.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore Oasis HE top load washer;

The F1 error code on this washer indicates a Primary Control Board failure.



It is likely that the machine control board will need to be replaced to correct this problem.



The part number for the machine control board is undetermineable because you have not provided me with the exact model # of your washer.



The procedure for replacing the machine control board is provided HERE

NOTE: Be sure to unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.



There is a slight possibility that a problem with the pressure switch hose could be causing this problem.

A pinched or twisted air hose can cause this fault code.

When you open the console, check the air hose connected to the pressure switch on the machine control board.

If it is pinched or crimped, I recommend rerouting the hose to resolve this problem.

This may fix your problem without replacing the control board.



NOTE: You may want to check for this condition before ordering the control board. Most electronic control boards cannot be returned for a refund or credit.



If you find no apparent problems with the air hose on the pressure switch, then replacing the machine control board on this washer should correct your problem. There is a risk involved in replacing this part yourself.

As noted above, you could have a problem with the air pressure hose that is not apparent upon your initial inspection. A service technician would normally need to properly and thoroughly diagnose this problem before replacing the control board.

My Maytag has F51 error code


F51 would indicate that 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 that you have proper voltage to the unit. It can also indicate that your rotor position sensor is either not registering or it is just bad. Remove and reinstall the connector at the RPS to clean off any corrosion built up on the connector. After that go ahead and try to run a cycle. If that does not work and you continue to get the same error, replace the RPS sensor.

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...


Hi.

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.

Solution is coutesy of expert "canbruce75"

If 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.

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,
