Machine shuts down and flashes F 06

Is there a way to get a copy of what the codes mean because there looks to be a lot of people having a lot of problems with the HE3t?

"F06" is a Motor Speed error code. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r714929-f06_error_whirlpool_duet_kenmore_elite

Now BEFORE you assume you have a component failure, the manufacturer recommends unplugging the washer for at least 30 minutes to reset the computer. In many cases this is all it takes to clear common "glitches" in the system. If the error reappears, follow the advice in the link by first checking all your connections on the Motor Control Unit (MCU) and Drive Motor. Then take resistance checks of your motor windings. The link gives you all this information.

To answer your initial question, there should be a tech sheet included with your washer that explains all the error codes and how to troubleshoot them. The manufacturer places this inside the washer behind the lower panel under the door. It will be located either on the back of the panel, or on the interior wall of the case. I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

PS If you locate your tech sheet, it is recommended that you leave it inside the appliance so you know where it is. The most common thing that consumers do is remove the tech sheet for safe keeping, then forget where it is.
