Scott,

The F 51 code, would indicate, the control board is not seeing the proper resistance on the motor circuit .

You should check and make sure there are not any articles, stuck between the tubs, or under the agitator.

Make sure you're not overloading the machine.and you have proper voltage to the unit.

Have you run the unit through a cycle empty ?

You may want to try that, before we have to get too involved in circuit and voltage tests.

Your technical data sheet should be on the inside of the front panel, you'll need to raise the top of the washer, using a putty knife to release the clips in the front seam, holding the top down .

I got the same problem. Started with a F50 so I disassembled the entire washer to see what was wrong. I checked the voltage on the connector to the motor and it read good resistance per the tech guide.

I ran the motor test without the basket and the shaft appears to jerk every now and again. At high speeds, the shaft stalls and then starts again. I already replaced the RPS with no change.

My thought now is that it is the tub and the bearing on the shaft to the motor. Anyone might agree with me?

The motor and the motor cover looks good and measures good with the meter.

Rularn,

Did you install the complete kit ?

Part number: AP4327312

Part number: AP4327312


Did you make sure all the connections were tight and proper, especially at the CCU and RPS ?

At this point, I would hate to see you replace an outer tub and shaft,on a maybe.

Usually, they will make some sort of noise when they begin to fail, and the majority of the agitate/spin problems, are due to a bad RPS or loose wire connection.

Did you have any other failure codes ? or symptoms ?

Thanks for the reply. The only codes I get are F50 and F51: motor and RPS. I checked the wire harness from the machine control to the RPS and motor and it's all good too.

In manual test, after the shaft will start at high speeds, it will stall.

Sometimes the shaft will jerk before it starts spinning at low speeds.

Sometimes I have to hand spin it a little once before the drive shaft starts to spin at low speeds at the start of the manual test.

Rularn,

It still sounds like it's a circuit problem,

Something you may want to try,
(if the tub is still out).
Put 2 or 3 drops of 3in1 oil between the shaft and the tub bearing,and give it a few seconds to drip down the shaft, then try the spin, again,

I think you'll find you still have the same results, then we can move on from there

Good Luck,

Read the instruction above concerning this code..took off agitater and it was below that in the bottom off the tub ..I managed to pull it out.. it was a pot holder..now running machine empty to make sure nothing else is stuck..it ran great and it seems that the final spin is faster.. Thanks for the advice

Doug, Great !!! Glad it wasn't anything major.

Good Work.

Default Code F51 Maytag Bravos

Kept getting this code. Did not find anything that was stuck in the machine, took off rotor cover, etc. Ended up having to replace the rotor sensor. Since I did this replacement, I get a scratchy/rubbing noise when it rotates/agitates and it gets a bit more high pitched when it is in a full spin. Any suggestions on this issue?

Klcannon, When you replaced the sensor, did you notice any moisture or water inside the rotor/stator assembly ? This could indicate a weak or leaking tub seal and or "washed out" tub bearings, that are starting to wear out and make noise.
Make sure all the shield bracket screws are torqued evenly and properly, the center plate and stator screws are tight, and the center bolt of the rotor is tight as possible.
