normally when one fault is generated after fixing another fault, it is normally down to something caused by the person working on it, this could sound like you have dismantled something on the suspension, you say you changed the pump, (did you tip it upside down to work on it) if you tipped it up to work on it check the suspension legs to make sure they look equal, as the chrome inner drum can not possibly be that far out of alignment, the whole drum unit can be though, thats a different matter, check suspension and get back to me,if i have helped rate me please

There are a number of possibilities here;

you are in a hard water area and that is deposited calcium. Use Calgon or some type of water softener.

You are using washing powder instead of HE (high efficiency) liquid.

You are using a cold wash with powder when you need to use warm water.

The washing machine needs descaling. The white is calcium from the heater element and tank.

i have the whirlpool top loader also. Was not quiet a year old, starts running at random by itself. They sent the repair man out got lectured that it was my fault (too much soap, washer is in basement, I need to call an electrician to check the wiring). Now it drips water into the inside of the washer.
I can see it will eventually be cheaper to replace than call the repairman back.... Won't be a Whirlpool

There should be an open end at the back of the washer, where the house initially was fixed.

If during the water heating step in the wash cycle, the water temperature sensor (NTC) value is out of range, or the heating element circuit has failed, the F05 error code will be displayed. Might need to be taken to a repairman

Pop the top cover off the agitator to access the 4 agitator dogs.
They must be replaced.

The model number is probably WFW6620HC0. The "LOC" may mean that you have set the control lock by pressing and holding the extra rinse button on the control panel for three+ seconds. Try holding the button again. If that doesn't work, look on the control panel for the Control Lock label. It will be in a small font below a button or in the middle a line between two buttons that you need to press and hold simultaneously for 3+ seconds. (Note: if you press and hold for too long, the lock will toggle off and back on. A skeleton key symbol may also be displayed on the LCD panel when this lock is enabled.)

The manual for the WFW6620HC0 is available from Whirlpool on their support site: https://www.whirlpool.com/services/manuals.html . The current link to the manual is https://www.whirlpool.com/content/dam/global/documents/201809/use-and-care-w11156985-revA.pdf .

I hope this helps. The control lock feature is useful when you are cleaning the surface of the washer and to keep small children from starting a wash cycle with a pet or sibling in the machine.

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.

Here is an earlier Fixya answer addressing the query:

Whirlpool cabrio error code f51 what does it mean

Sensor is item 20 below. Clean it.

This is an error on the motor. Check the motor brushes, they could be worn out.

The manual is here. I searched for the specifications and none are available for that machine. A Whirlpool Front loader or Top Loader will be comparable at around 3.0 to 3.2 cubic feet.
