Customer Question

I have a code F51 on my Maytag Bravos washer
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: It's about 7 years old, and I don't know the exact model. Where do I get that info
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: If the code means something simple, then yes. Otherwise I will call a technician. I can't find the owners guide that was provided when I purchased the machine
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Yes, what does code F51 mean?

The error code of F51 is a failed rotory position sensor.

It will need to be replaced.
