What does code F51 mean

Code F51 means there is a problem with the Rotor Position Sensor. This could be something as minor as a bad plug connection. However, there have been many cases of socks or other small garments being flung over the top of the tub rim and getting caught between the metal tub and the plastic tub which contains the water. The "errant" clothing keeps the tub from returning to it's original position thus preventing the Position Sensor from aligning.

Water leak at bottom of Whirlpool Estate washer. Removed the cabinet. No leaks from the water pump, hoses or inlet valve. The tub leans a little toward the front of the machine. When filling/rinsin

It is common on Whirlpool models for the water to splash out the top when filling especially when sheets or nylon cloth is loaded in the washer. Air fills the cloth and balloons the garment up this caused water to bounce off the garment and splash out the back. This is the most common reason for those mysterious leaks. Lowering the water pressure coming into the washer can help prevent this.

Often, the machine (Maytag, MAV1000) doesn't spin at the end of a cycle. The belt must be slipping because there is a lot of black "belt dust" underneath the machine. We recently had a...

i have a feeling that probably your tub bearing may be jammed. You can lift the machine at a 45 degree angle take the belt off and try turning the transmission pulley either way, one way will turn free for wash mode and other way will be more difficult but you should be able to turn the pulley so you could see if if your tub turns if not well you just found your problem. You will not be able to repair it b because you will need special tools.
Other probability would be a garment stuck between the two tubs accessable by removing front panel and lifting the top.
lift top by inserting flat blade tool at each end in between top and front push clips and lift top
Front removal twoo screws 5/16 nut driver on each end inner portion of the front panel.
Unclip tub cover and remove and you will be able to see between the two tubs.

Hope this helps.

Code F20, what is it and what do i do?????

The "F20" means no water is detected entering the tub or the pressure switch trip was not detected.

There is a good possibility the reason why is because some or all the water is coming out the dispenser. The reason why it's coming out of the dispenser is most likely due to a small garment was shoved up into the tube that delivers the water into the tub. This can happen if the washer is overloaded or if the garment is too small. Small garments should be placed in a garment bag before washing.

Remove the dispenser drawer and confirm there is no block there and then open the door and look at the rubber boot at about the 10 or 11 o'clock position and you should see where the water enters the tub. You will likely find a small garment up inside the tube restricting the fill water from entering the tub and causing the F20.

Squeaky when used and the edges or strings on garments get caught on the front part of dryer and either ruin the garment or break the string Do i need a new dryer?

There are several drum slides mounted on the front tub bearing (shroud). When these slides wear out the tub can drop down just enough to cause garments to get hung. If you catch it early enough you can just replace the slides. If not you may have to replace the front bearing as well.

You can tell by removing the top of the machine. There are normally 2 to 4 screws holding the top on. open the door and look up to the top and you will see the screws to remove and then take the top off and look at the front of the dryer where the tub rests on the top of the slides and bearings. you can look at it and tell if it is wore out. slides are 316 and front tub bearing is 313 on the illustration.

Kenmore Elite Oasis TL washer, stubborn Sd code

Found the problem. After removing the back panel, found some garments in the bottom of the surrounding clear plastic tub. These must have been periodically blocking the outflow area and triggering the Sd error code. Fixed it by opening the top components of the washer so I could see down into the surrounding tub from above. Fished out the garments with clothes hangar. Put everything back together and have done six loads with zero problems.
