Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
F51 means that your motor is struggling and if the water is loud, that does mean that your bearing is going out. Now if you have a technician come out to replace the bearing for you, you'll be looking at about a $350 repair or so. If you're handy enough to replace the bearing yourself, then the parts will be about $150 or so. This water is actually made by Whirlpool since Whirlpool bought out Maytag and below is a video that shows you how to replace the bearing and shaft if you wanted to replace it yourself. You need the exact same parts as what are listed at the beginning of the video---don't be confused by the fact that the parts are made by Whirlpool.
