You could clean the rps sensor with rubbing alcohol. tip machine back, remove the rotor with al allen wrench. remove the (4) 5/16" bolts holding the stator on, carefully unclip the rps sensor. (Rotor Position Sensor). Remove the wire clip and clean the contacts. Reassemble and give it a try. Or have your dealer ( unless its sears as they WILL NOT help you, call yourself, 800-253-1301) and see if they will give you a one time goodwill gesture to their customer and cover it under warranty. If cleaning doesn't help you need the control board, wire harness, and rps sensor replaced. the rps sensor should come with the new harness. Whirlpool may cover parts????? hope this helps

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.
It can also be a defective control board false reporting an error which is common on these models.

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.
