Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
Some days the machine (5 years old) works fine all day doing 3-5 loads a day and some days it takes up to 8 hours to finish one load! It is very inconsistent and even when I unplug and replug it won't do a drain/spin or rinse/spin. Do you think it may be just a loose wire being that it works fine some times. I'd hate to spend money on a repair man if the wire just needs to be secured.
The "F06" error code is a Motor Speed error. The following link explains the recommended course of action you should take:
Now, another tip to try BEFORE you assume you have any failed parts is to unplug the washer for at least 30 minutes. This is recommended by the manufacturer to reset the main computer (or CCU). Sometimes this tip will reset most common system errors. If the problems persists, I would recommend checking the wiring harness between the Motor Control Unit (MCU) and the Drive Motor, followed by resistance checks of the motor windings. You may have a loose connector somewhere (as you suggested) or a component beginning to fail after it heats up (hence, the reason why the washer works for a while, then sometimes fails). Intermittent problems aren't always easy to troubleshoot. If your symptoms keep reocurring, take note of when and how (i.e., after several loads, during heavy loads, during final spin, etc.). This will give me an idea of what may be causing any repeated error codes. I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.
