The error is an indication a motor speed problem. You will need to check the following:

- Check the wiring harness. Verify all connections between the Drive Motor, Motor Control Unit (MCU), and Central Control Unit (CCU).

NOTE: The MCU is a circuit board located in the vicinity of the Drive Motor on the bottom rear of the washer. To access the MCU, you will need to remove the back panel of the washer.

NOTE: The CCU is the main computer for the washer and is located behind the wash tub. You will need to remove the top panel to access the CCU. This is accomplished by removing the three screws in the back of the washer that hold the top in place. Once the screws are removed, the top panel will slide back, then lift off.

- Check the Drive Motor. Perform a continuity check of the Drive Motor windings. Remove the connector plug and check across pins 1 to 2, 2 to 3, and 1 to 3. All readings should be approximately 6 ohms. HINT: You can also take this reading by removing connector 2 from the MCU and measuring across pins 1, 2 and 3. If the readings are good, this will also prove the wiring and connector good.

- Check the MCU. The connectors are numbered 1 to 3 (L to R). That is, with the MCU installed, connector 1 is on the bottom, followed by 2 in the middle, and 3 on top.

Connector 1 - is the serial communications link between the MCU and CCU and has three wires. At the opposite end, this will be the 2nd connector from the rear on the left-hand side of the CCU.
Connector 2 - is the link between the MCU and the Drive Motor. Pins 1, 2, and 3 on this connector are the Drive Motor windings. Pins 4 and 5 are for the tachometer.
Connector 3 - is the primary power connector. Pins 1 to 2 should read 120VAC with the door in the locked position. Pin 3 is ground. At the opposite end, this is the 4th connector from the right on the front of the CCU.

NOTE: All the connector pins are numbered R to L.

If your continuity readings are normal for the Drive Motor and you have verified all connectors, replace the MCU.

If any of the Drive Motor windings indicate readings higher that 6 ohms, replace the Drive Motor.

    Whirlpool dp1040xtx flashing code 61 and 66. 61 flashed a couple times. What's wrong?


    F6E1 - Water is not present in the machine when it should be.

    Could be: inlet hose filter clogged, blocked holes on spray arms, dishes not loaded according to manual, water tap closed or water pressure too low, drain hose placed incorrectly, DW filters clogged, check dispenser (missing dispenser gasket, improper detergent), check water indicator (OWI or VWI) depending of model DW, check connections beetwen OWI (optical water indicator) and CB (control board), main motor, wiring, control board.

    Check the foam level in the appliance. Depending what kind of detergent was used. Was the foam level too high?
    Comment: Washing tabs combined with short washing cycles can produce too high foam level.

    What is Error Code "F6E1"


    I had the f6 e1 code flashing on Whirlpool Duet washer. It would stop midcycle and beep. I cleaned out the lint filter. This seemed to help but gradually the problem got worse. I cleaned filter again. Still beeping. I read more solution and finally found the answer! I never put the cover back on. There is a switch on the left bottom that is held in by the cover. Works fine now!
