The F51 error code flashes when there is a rotor position sensor (RPS) failure or lower harness problem.Here are some recommendations you can try to resolve this issue:
First disconnect the electrical power to the washer.
Make sure the basket turns freely. (By the way, make sure you are not overloading the washer. Make sure objects, and or clothing are not getting caught on the rotor underneath the washer jamming the rotor. Make sure you are not using too little water by using the wrong cycle for the type of load.)
Lean the washer back so that you can access the motor from the bottom then remove the rotor (1-bolt), and the stator (4-bolts). Make sure the stator and wiring harness have not been twisted causing the connector to twist at the RPS board creating a bad connection.
See image below for the RPS & harness location.
Unplug the RPS sensor connector and then plug back in 5-6 times to make sure if there is any conformal coating on the pins you cut through it and make good contact. Then tug back on the wires to make sure the connector bites onto the terminal and makes a good connection.
If you still have an F51 error code I would recommend calling a service technician to diagnose & repair.

On kenmore F51 means Motor RPS Failure, the motor is not spinning or the motor sensor detects a fault.

First unplug the power cord for one hour or so to check if it is a jammed sensor, and see if reset.

If that does not work insert model number here, you will get exploded views and parts.

The motor is at the back below the tub.

I have an error message f51 on my whirlpool cabrio washer model number WTW7600XW0, What is it and how can I fix this error on my own


F51 error code is a motor rotor position sensor failure or a lower harness problem. You need to check the motor in manual test mode, not automatic test mode. This will check the hall sensors and do a spin test: Be sure the washer is in standby mode (plugged in with all indicators off; or with only the Clothes Clean or Done indicator on). Select any one button (except POWER, START, STOP, and PAUSE/CANCEL) and follow the steps below, using the same button: Press/hold 3 seconds. Release for 3 seconds. Press/hold 3 seconds. Release for 3 seconds. Press/hold 3 seconds.

If this test mode has been entered successfully, all indicators on the console are illuminated for 5 seconds with 88 showing in the Estimated Time Remaining two-digit display. During the 5 second wait time with 88 showing in the display, press the same button once. You should be in manual test mode. If the button is not pressed within 5 seconds, the automatic test mode begins. The Rotor Position Sensor uses Wash, Rinse, and Spin indicators to detect the three hall sensors. Console can have up to two of these indicators on at the same time when the tub is not moving. Open the lid and rotate the basket by hand. The Wash, Rinse, and Spin indicators should toggle on and off according to the direction the tub is being turned.

SPIN TEST: Make sure lid is down. Press and release: 2nd RINSE or EXTRA RINSE. The lid locks and the lid lock indicator turns on. Press and release; SPIN SPEED, WATER LEVEL, or LOAD SIZE. The motor/basket spins at 23 rpm. Press again, motor /basket spins at 530 rpm. Press again, motor/basket spins at 950 rpm. Press again and motor turns off.

Hi.

F51 is motor position sensor error. From manual:

F51: Motor RPS Failure
F then 51 flashes when there is a motor rotor position sensor (RPS) failure or lower harness problem.

The motor position sensor failure may be the result of a problem between basket and motor.The parts below the basket must be inspected. There is need to remove the basket to check parts in there. I can give you the procedure to remove the basket if you want.

What does F 51 mean?


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.

I have a maytag top loading washer. I have a F51 message. I have no clue what that means, can anyone please help?


Hi,
F51 means you have a rotery positioning sensor error or (RPS sensor) This is clipped onto the top of the stater motor and means you will have to replace the RPS sensor if the tub is spinning smoothly by hand.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Kenmore Oasis F51 code - already replaced RPS. Now what?


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.
