  • fostersinc Feb 04, 2008

    My power went out and when it came on 2 seconds later my cabrio washer was flashing F and 50 (I thought the 50 was the minutes for the cycle I was on but after seeing all these F51 comments I think not). Service is coming later this week but I am 1 month out of warranty of course. Can you fix this yourself?

What does an error code F51 on a whirlpool cabrio washer mean?

Cabrio F51 Fault (Stored Fault Code F51) The Cabrio's F51 fault code flashes on the washing machine's display when there is a motor rotor position sensor (RPS) failure.
Check for good contact at the control Board and at the RPS. Sometimes disconnecting and reconnecting the RPS plug connection several times will clean off corrosion that may be affecting the contacts.

Here is an earlier Fixya answer addressing the query:

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.

Will not spin code 51

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
This is the Cabrio washer. F51 fault code is likely the Rotor Position switch failure, located on the motor. Even though it might run, the Hall sensor inside it has gone out. The Cabrio manual is in the Online Repair manuals Forum which you may jump to from any page at the bottom right if you want to test motor resistance from the convenience of the console. Many people mistakenly replace the main control board in hopes of correcting this issue but it is actually a communications error between the Hall sensor and the main board.

There is a Rotor Position switch kit which should correct the problem, and comes with a new harness and excellent instructions. picure below :

What does F1 error code mean on washer

It means you have a control board fault. Call Whirlpool and tell them the fault you are getting and see if it's recalled. There's a good chance. You can install yourself or have and appliance tech do it.
