Question about Maytag Bravos MVWB400V Washer
The F51 code is a motor rotor position sensor (RPS) feedback error. In other words the control board is not sensing any motor rotation ive seen this same problem in whirlpools calypso, cabrio, and kenmore's oasis you will need to support the machine on a diagonal and go in from under neath removing the motor to gain acces to the rps sensor if you have any further questions message me back and dont be surprised these codes usually hide other codes in the kenmore i mentioned i went from rps sensor to lid switch to erc to entire wiring harness cost me like 260 in parts for a machine that maybe costed 499 at that time not a great fan of the rps sensor in any unit they seem to fail within 3 years hope this helps and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations Thanks Rick

The F51 fault code on your Cabrio washer indicates that the control board is not sensing the proper drive motor spin. To clear the fault code, press the Pause/Cancel button.
Make sure that the drain hose is not stuck way down the stand pipe. This can cause siphoning of fill water which will inhibit proper motor rotation.
Check to see if the wash basket spins freely. If it does not, you may have an item of clothing stuck between the outer tub and the inner basket. This restriction in rotation will also cause an F51 fault code.
If these tips do not help you resolve the F51 problem, then you probably have a component failure. Possible failures include: wire harness or wire connection problem between the machine control and the RPS sensor (Rotor Position Sensor), a failed RPS sensor, a failed drive motor, and a failed machine control board.
