Re: whirlpool duet washer throwing H the F code
F06 usually means problem in motor speed circuit either main control or motor control or possible wiring connections..FH is usually a problem with the flow meter left side under top has small hose from fill valve and one to dispenser...it's not reading water flow to machine a light tap may help confirm problem if doesn't help may need to change flow meter anyway small switch on small bd with wires will stick and not signal main bd there is water flow

Whirlpool's 'F06' decodes as 'tachometer failure, no motor movement'.
It does sound as if the motor requires replacement unless it is the control board not powering the motor.
Now, a word or two of advice from a retired Englishman in SW France. It might be suggested that just the brushes on the motor want changing; experience (of others) suggests that they may only last months rather than many years UNLESS the motor itself is refurbished. Refurbishment includes skimming the commutator on which the brushes run. Without skimming the brushes do not sit cleanly on the com, often causing excessive sparking and excessive wear on BOTH. Alternately a new motor! I changed the motor on our 19+ year-old Bosch at a cost of GBP250 ;-0(
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
Actually, your error code is "Sd" and indicates that the washer thinks that there are too many suds in the basket / drum.
Your buzzing sound is also likely to be the water inlet valves, common to top loaders as well, as the washer is adding additional water to rinse excessive suds out. Check your supply hoses for kinks, connections for scale buildup inside, as well as the screens on the inlet ports of the washer itself.
A kinked or restricted drain hose can also throw an Sd error code as well.
Here is what the manufacture says about F06 - my comments will follow these.
DRIVE MOTOR TACHOMETER ERROR The control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will be unlocked after three minutes.
Possible Causes / Procedure 1. Verify the shipping system including shipping bolts, spacers and cables are removed. 2. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 3. Check wire harness connections between the drive motor and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU). 4. Plug in washer or reconnect power. 5. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor. 6. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.
If you just set the machine up be sure the shipping bolts have been removed, this is the most common reason for F06.
Other than that there is some type of communication error between the three main components (motor, Motor Control Unit and Central Control Unit) or the wire connectors between the three.
If you have had the unit a while and it is not related to the shipping bolts I would recommend calling Whirlpool
I have the whirlpool Duet 9150 with the same issue. I removed, reseated and reconnected every connector at least 4 times with the same random result of F06 to the point where it no longer finished the load. I then removed the motor control board again and sprayed it down with electronic cleaner along with all connections by disconnecting them , spraying them down and then reconnect and connected a few times to ensure good contact. I then tried again and the F -06 code came back. I then ordered the board for $ 150 online . When the new board arrived 4 days later, my wife tried the washer one more time and it worked. I have performed over 2 dozen loads . The board was never replaced. It appeared that spraying the board and connectors worked.
