    Hi
    I believe according to Sears chart --F51 was possible main control board or a bad
    connection to motor.I cleaned connections but it didn,t help.Sears is going to send me a
    #W10183157.Looks like an electronic control with the wiring harness.
    Went on line & the F51 error code is quite common on the Oasis washers. some replaced
    main boards--some had luck with unplugging connections & re connecting.Has worked for
    me sometimes--not this one though.
    Will try this new wire harness. Rene

Hello, Welcome to FixYa. I can't seem to access any previous post dialog that may have taken place but I'd like to help if you can fill me in on whats taken place to this point. Sorry to hear you replaced the control for nothing, F51 has nothing to do with a control board issue. The scenario you describe is usually associated with a item stuck under the tub or a loose stator or a faulty "RPS" device or connection at the "RPS"...but I don't know if you checked that yet or if you know how. I'll wait for you reply to see whats been done or suggested and checked to this point. Regards, Macmarkus :)

    Hey Rene,



    Thanks for replying. If folks get the F51 resolved via replacing the control it's awesome, but the F51 99% of the time in my experience is associated with the rotor and stator/RPS assembly and quiet often it is initiated due to a loose rotor or bad RPS..



    There is a repair tip regarding this from sears ( I'm a sears technician myself ) which suggest checking the wires to the RPS and then the rotor, while insuring the center bolt is really tight via applying some "lock tight".



    Here's an exert from my files...






    The kit you're referring to ( part # 8565188 ) is as shown here and yes I've seen them, but mostly it is a loose rotor.






    You may want to check the rotor, but either way let me know how you make out with the repairs and good luck.



    Regards,



    Macmarkus :)

I have a kenmore oasis he 262072 washer that has an f51 error


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.
