This unit has a F-51 error code. I took the inner basket out and found kids socks and cleared them, replaced the RPS and it still gives the F-51 code and doesn't operate correctly. The tub spins freely and the owners haven't complained about bearing noise.  I ordered a main board and promised the customer that the new board will fix the problem. 

 

How do test whether its the RPS vs the Board and do you think the new board will fix it?  Thanks.

1st point

 

test # 3a in the manual should help   http://appliantology...raining-manual/

 

I believe the rps in this manual is called the "optical sensor"

 

2nd point....never ever box yourself in with a customer by saying a board will definetly fix a problem, if you are not certain yourself. Leave yourself some wiggle room...ie "the board communicates with xyz...sometimes it's difficult to determine where the fault is but usually it is the .____ (board in your case, since you already ordered it). I will order the most common part that fixes the problem. If the problem continues, I will get the second most common part and return the other.  Through testing, you may well determine the part may be the rps instead of the board. Then you saved the day...that is if the part is cheaper than the board.

A loose rotor bolt on the bottom of the machine will give you a F51 error code. All you need to do is tighten it.

We've all been there, done that!   What I would give just to be able to turn back time ....just for 20 or 30 seconds....Is that asking too much??
