Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

F51 means that your RPS sensor has failed on your washing machine. There is a kit that has been designed to fix this problem because it was so common. It comes with instructions on how to install it if you wanted to do it yourself, but basically it requires you replace the wire harness to your RPS sensor along with the RPS sensor. You'll need to remove the motor because the RPS sensor is clipped onto the top of the motor and the motor is mounted to the bottom of the tub. Below is a link to the kit you'd need to order to fix the problem.
