It is better to replace these contacts as they will only get worse. I know ace hardware has some good contact cleaner and gloves too.

Washing machine display F51 on Maytag Bravo. How do I fix it?


F51 error code

The reason could well be due to an intermittent connection at the Rotor Position Sensor, (RPS).

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.

F51 Fault


e F51 code indicates a problem with the RPS (Rotational Speed Sensor) that monitors the motor speed. This issue has been identified as relating to the the connection system between the RPS and the controller.

Whirlpool has changed the RPS connector design, providing a more reliable connection and is available as a service kit. The control has also been updated for better sensing of the RPS. Also, if you have experienced problems with certain wash loads getting tangled and knotted, there is also an update washplate intended to reduce this issue. You should contact Whirlpool for possible repair concessions related to these issues.

If you would like to get to the RPS and try cleaning it.. Here's how:

In some cases, the F51 code can be fixed by cleaning the RPS connector. The RPS is located on the motor armature underneath the machine.
1. Tilt the machine backwards, resting the console against the wall.
2. using a disposer tool or suitable hex wrench loosen the center stator screw completely (the screw is captive and will not fall out of hole).
3. The stator contains a series of strong magnets and will take some tugging and wiggling to pull off.
4. Remove the 4 bolts that secure the armature to the tub. CAREFUL this assembly is a little heavy, support well before removing last bolt.
5. The RPS is attached to the armature. Remove and insert RPS connector (the one with 6 wires) 10 times to 'wipe' the contacts providing a cleaning action.

The washer will not complete a wash cycle


These machines get corrosion in the door safety switch. I would start there.

A little cleaning of the contacts might get that machine going. How about a repair manual?

Hi,
  • It indicates that there is no communication between circuit boards.
  • Power off, drag machine out onto the floor, remove covers, disconnect circuit board connectors and clean with a toothbrush.
  • Clean off any corrosion or crud, refit and test. Closely inspect the entire wiring loom and circuit boards, looking particularly closely at areas where the wiring touches the machine frame. Your'e looking for any signs of wear or fraying, which would allow the bare wire to contact the frame.
  • Check all wires and connectors generally for internal breakages caused by movement of the wiring loom attached to the drum.
  • If you could not find any torn wires call service technician to repair the washing machine .

Hope this helps .
