F51 error is a rotor position sensor error. This error appears when rotor position sensor is faulty or due to a faulty control board. Look underneath the tub and check the motor, check for RPS on the right side and under the motors rotor disk. Use allen wrench to remove the rotor and then the four bolts holding the motor stator to the tub can be removed. Your looking for cracks or anything broken.
The control board is the most likely candidate. But the others need checked to rule them out first.
