Model - MVWB850YWO

Expert:  gst85 replied 1 year ago.

Thank you. the f51 error indicates that your 9rotor position sensor) is not registering or it is just bad. try this, remove and reinstall the connector at the RPS at least three times to clean off any corrosion built up on the connector and RPS due to the intermittent connections. after that go ahead and try to run a cycle. if you continue to receive the error then you need to replace the RPS sensor.

Expert:  gst85 replied 1 year ago.
Are you going to work on it yourself?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Where is the RPS connector?

Expert:  gst85 replied 1 year ago.

it is mounted on the stator which is basically your motor. you need to tilt the machine back so that you can remove the rotor. you will see the RPS sensor.here is a diagram for you. it is going to be part number 20 on the diagram.
