    Thanks for the information. Working in the electronics industry, I know how finiky edge connectors can be. I used a small piece of emery cloth to dress up the circuit board on the RPS and the connector and things seem to be going well right now. I also performed the diagnostic checks that are in the manual and realize the control module will retain past faults but was wondering if when you performed the automatic checks if previous faults were eliminated during the checks. No dreaded F51 faults any more and the wifey is happy.

Washer stops and F 51 flashs


Hello, It is a rotor position sensor code. The control is no longer receiving a signal from the motor. It can be a failed sensor or control, but usually it is a bad connection where the wires plug on to the sensor.
Thanks

F then 51 flashes when there is a motor rotor position sensor (RPS) failure.

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.

Cabrio washer is giving an F 51 Code


The "F51" error code is common problem with the Cabrio. This is an RPS sensor error. The sensor is mounted along the motor windings under the washer and detects the rotation spin speed. The sensors on these units can go bad, causing the error code, and it has been a frequent problem. I would recommend you contact Whirlpool first (due to the unit only being a year old) and see if there is a recall or upgrade on this part. I believe there is. The repair would then be covered by the manufacturer. If I give you the steps to access and/or replace the sensor at this point, you may be voiding any existing warranty you may still have. Some components carry a longer warranty than your normal one year limited warranty from the manufacturer. Something you may consider.

If you have further questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you in some way.

Whirlpool Cabrio HE washing machine displays error code F51. What is it and hw to I fix it?


I work for an appliance repair company and I had a recent service call for the same exact situation on this washer. I also know that Rotary Position Sensor is linked to the F-51 error code. I have found that this is not always the case. On this paticular call the F-51 error code was caused by a piece of clothing (sock, wash cloth, etc.) being stuck or jammed between the internal basket and the outer tub. I removed the cloth and the washer ran fine, so give that a check first before you spend the money.
