Hi, a UL error code means a load not balanced. The washer is running a load-balance correction routine. Please allow the washer to continue. If the dial is flashing and the washer has stopped, redistribute the load, close the lid, and press START/PAUSE.

I would go to the Mfg. web site and try to download the wiring diagram. You will probably have to look them over good and make sure it is the correct wiring diagram because on most vehicles made today some have 5 or 6 wiring harnesses they use and you have to find the one that is installed on your vehicle.Vehicle wiring is a headache to say the least. I have run into the same problem and it was a different solution on each of them. I had a 2000 Ford Explorer that had a blue wire with a black stripe and only one end on it! I put a signal tracer on it and it went out when it went through the fire wall. I have used that signal tracer to trace a wire 500' on electrical jobs but the signal stopped at the fire wall. I can tell you this sometimes I would find that the power to the brake lights split off in a switch or the tail lights were powered from a completely different place than where the brake lights were so look elsewhere away from the brake lights for the power to the tail lights.

The timer is sending it a signal to run or most likely the run relay is stuck closed ( one wire to the pump will come from the relay)

F51 error code is a motor rotor position sensor failure or a lower harness problem. You need to check the motor in manual test mode, not automatic test mode. This will check the hall sensors and do a spin test: Be sure the washer is in standby mode (plugged in with all indicators off; or with only the Clothes Clean or Done indicator on). Select any one button (except POWER, START, STOP, and PAUSE/CANCEL) and follow the steps below, using the same button: Press/hold 3 seconds. Release for 3 seconds. Press/hold 3 seconds. Release for 3 seconds. Press/hold 3 seconds.

If this test mode has been entered successfully, all indicators on the console are illuminated for 5 seconds with 88 showing in the Estimated Time Remaining two-digit display. During the 5 second wait time with 88 showing in the display, press the same button once. You should be in manual test mode. If the button is not pressed within 5 seconds, the automatic test mode begins. The Rotor Position Sensor uses Wash, Rinse, and Spin indicators to detect the three hall sensors. Console can have up to two of these indicators on at the same time when the tub is not moving. Open the lid and rotate the basket by hand. The Wash, Rinse, and Spin indicators should toggle on and off according to the direction the tub is being turned.

SPIN TEST: Make sure lid is down. Press and release: 2nd RINSE or EXTRA RINSE. The lid locks and the lid lock indicator turns on. Press and release; SPIN SPEED, WATER LEVEL, or LOAD SIZE. The motor/basket spins at 23 rpm. Press again, motor /basket spins at 530 rpm. Press again, motor/basket spins at 950 rpm. Press again and motor turns off.

HC flashes when the hot and cold inlet hoses are reversed.
Make sure inlet hoses are connected correctly.

Read your Manual, that just might be a first starting point.

Otherwise 2WD, 4WD and it may be the transfer case?

Whether under Warranty or Not this is a Controller Problem and a Tech will have to be called as you won't be able to DIY access a new part from an Appliance Parts Shop or Whirlpool.
Controller or sensor are not repairable but must be replaced as a Unit to restore full function

If your washer is leaking from the connection where the hose and the hose end join, replace the hose. If it's leaking from where the hose attaches to the washer, check and see if there is a rubber washer inside the hose end, there should be, try replaceing the rubber washer inside the hose end,

This particular washer has a test that we can run to see any errors. This can be confusing on this model.
I am including a document below that will describe how to view the old error codes. Use the section that starts with Activating the service diagnostic modes. You can start with the cycle selector knob at any position.
  1. Be sure the washer is in standby mode (plugged in with all indicators off).
  2. Perform the following sequence of movement using the cycle selector knob. NOTE: After reset, sequence "a" through "e" must be completed within 6 seconds. When it tells you to rotate the cycle selector knob, it means 1 click, not a full turn. Once you have completed the cycle knob turns reset and "a" through "e", turn the cycle selector 1 click clockwise from the position it is already in. This is the fault code display mode. Then press the start button. Each time you turn the cycle selector knob 1 click clockwise after pressing start will show you an error code. Note: this washer stores 4 codes if any. The error codes on this washer are displayed in this format: F5 E3, F7 E1, etc. There is an error code chart in the image below.
If there are no error codes stored, I recommend that you start from the beginning (step 1 above) and then run the Automatic test mode. If this unit detects a problem, it will display the error at the end of this test.
Here is a list for the errors.
Post back your results.

That error means that it is sensing an OVERLOAD. If it does this when it is empty, then there is something causing the error. IT could be something stuck in the drum around the seal or the bearing or it could be the bearings itself
