Kenmore Elite Oasis HE. Flashing Fault code, F51. Cant get it to clear

Hi, thanks for using JustAnswer.com. Please remember, I do not get paid for my time and expertise until you accept. 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.

 

RPS Sensor Kit $62.52

So I have to purchase this kit, before i can clear this code?
You will likely need to purchase the kit before the code will clear. You may try power cycling the machine (unplugging for 5 minutes) but the code will probably return. It means the control cannot "see" what the motor is doing.

To replace this part, washer drum must be removed correct? I think I have had one of these replaced b4
No, this is done from the bottom of the machine.

Oh, great! Thanks =) I have unplugged the washer for a few minutes, tried to run it again, code still came up. So, I have ordered the part from the link you sent me to. Thanks for your help!! Have a great day!

You, too! Please be sure to leave positive feedback after you accept! Thank you!
