It is flashing F 51
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 7 months ago

OK if it is flashing F51 that is a rotor position sensor code. Does it come up right away when you start it or does it run for a bit then the code pops up?

It runs for a bit the stops and starts flashing
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 7 months ago

Ok you can first replace the RPS sensor on the unit, if that does not correct the issue you will need a new main motor control board. That is the main board in the console of the unit.
