F 06 error code

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.

    Even when I ran the diagnostics, it worked 3 out of 4 times. This problem has been going on for quite a while. I tried r-eseating the connector between the motor and the MCU. Sometimes it seems to help and other times it does nothing.

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.

Calypso washer stops/runs every 5 - 30 seconds in the middle of any washing cycle. No error codes. It just stops and than runs again all the time and cannot finish any washing cycle. It is 8 years...


I had the same problem. The washer control board has an intermittent failure. If you unplug power for about 30 minutes then plug it back in you will get a PF code (power failure). Ignore this code and push start again. It may run till it finishes the cycle or it may start cycling again right away. A new board costs about $180 at repairclinic.com

The machine stops after the wash cycle and won't finish.


The code is UE

load too small.
• Load is out of balance.
• The washer has an imbalance
detection and correction
system. If individual heavy
articles are loaded (bath
mat, bath robe, etc.) and the
imbalance is too great, the
washer will make several
attempts to restart the spin
cycle. If an imbalance is still
detected, the washer will stop
and the error code will be
displayed.
• Add 1 or 2 similar items to help balance the load.
• Rearrange items to help balance the load.

Leaves white marks on coloured clothes


I'd try putting the machine on a hot fill wash, max water level put in half a cup of baking soda when the machine starts to washer turn it off and leave it to soak overnight, then let it finish the cycle the next day. Also make sure you tip some of the hot water down the beach dispenser and clean all around the top of the machine

Cheers

Error code OE does not finish whole cycle


Just resolved same problem...it is the pressure switch aka water level sensor.  OE is overflow error.  Pressure switch is located under top cover on front right hand side.  It is round and has a rubber tube leading down to the drum and a electrical connection to the board.  Paid maytag man to diagnose/install cost me about $150
