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.

What does an error code F51 on a whirlpool cabrio washer mean?


Cabrio F51 Fault (Stored Fault Code F51) The Cabrio's F51 fault code flashes on the washing machine's display when there is a motor rotor position sensor (RPS) failure.
Check for good contact at the control Board and at the RPS. Sometimes disconnecting and reconnecting the RPS plug connection several times will clean off corrosion that may be affecting the contacts.

Whirlpool Cabrio model WTW7300X washing machine


Did you inspect the area around the drum? You have to take the top off to do that. Then there is a water sensor on the left side. The error that you get is from the drum speed sensor.

Am getting a F51 error code


The electronic control displays an F51 code.
There is an intermittent connection at the Rotor Position Sensor, (RPS), causing the electronic control to indicate an F51 code.
Remove and reinstall the connector at the RPS at least three times to clean off any corrosion built up on the connector and RPS due to the intermittent connection. Confirm that the connector is fully seated onto the RPS control upon final connection and verify there are no damaged wires.
If you still receive the error after this, replace the electronic control with part #W10130544. This new control is designed to check the RPS sensor differently and is less sensitive to intermittent RPS connections.
