Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer
I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old man who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. If you google whirlpool cabrio error code F51, you'll get an idea of what you are up against. This is obviously a manufacturer's defect. They should take care of this problem whether you are in warranty or not. If you are insistent, maybe they will. Contact whirlpool directly if you're not satisfied by your local service people. This is not a DIY job.
Good luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.

I work for an appliance repair company and I had a recent service call for the same exact situation on this washer. I also know that Rotary Position Sensor is linked to the F-51 error code. I have found that this is not always the case. On this paticular call the F-51 error code was caused by a piece of clothing (sock, wash cloth, etc.) being stuck or jammed between the internal basket and the outer tub. I removed the cloth and the washer ran fine, so give that a check first before you spend the money.

F51 error is a rotor position sensor error, two parts really need to be replaced. 1) the rotor sensor itself ($43) and 2) the control board ($197)
