The error code F51 indicates an issue with the RPS sensor in the motor. It has been a source of trouble for the Cabrio, Bravos and Oasis machines. There has been a kit developed for the F51 trouble and comes with complete installation instructions, including pictures. It is available at the link below.

I am also sending you a link to the diagrams for your washer. If you look at the diagram for the diagram with the tub, the sensor is #20 on the diagram. I am here for further assistance and thank you for your time and patience, Randy.

Sorry, I had the repairman come out to replace the kit, and that was not the problem. It was a washrag which had 'jumped' the side of the tub, prohibiting free movement of the tub and setting off the F 51 code. He said that is a common problem. Sorry, but you blue it and cost me $58 dollars for nothing. Not 'smiley face'!
Expert:  Randy replied 1 year ago.
Sorry, I just looked at what I asked you and I thought I ask if the tub turned freely by hand but I see I didn't. If I had ask that question you probably would have said no and then we would have gone with something stuck under the tub. Great job on your part and again I am sorry.
