Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
I want to be able to open washer after it has started to add additional cleaning ingredients, or tennis shoes about 4 minutes before the wash cycle is finished.
Unfortunately the lid lock id there to prevent the lid from being opened during the cycle so there is no way to do it.

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.

Slowly turn the dial to the end of the next cycle, without actually turning on the machine....if you hear the lock open, success!!

i think the problem that you have is one of the electric coils from the entrance valve from water. Check if there the vibration comes from there.

I believe this model has a defective control board under the control panel. The new control board has longer times between the drain and the spin. Eliminating the unbalance when it tries to spin with water still left in it. Also check for slow drain this will enhance the problem. The control board is a warrany repair if covered.
