SOURCE: Code F6

That's usually failure of a relay on the control board.

There should be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

Whirlpool 6 sense f6


Normally the F6 code means a shorting cook relay. That can be repaired for $39.95 in most cases.
But it would be best if we knew your full model number from the cooking cavity or elsewhere on the oven.

"F6" on a Whirlpool microwave means you have a shorted cook relay on the control circuit board.

For model MH7140XFQ0 the control circuit board would be part number 4393919, which you can order from the Pros here for $132.23.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then you unplug the keypad (as per the photo below) take out the old board, then move the new circuit board into your frame.

Some connectors on the relays may have a lock:

It wasnt working at no display nothing, i took down and cleaned real good now im getting a F6 code


Funny that a cleaning would revive a totally dead microwave! Never would have guessed. On microwaves manufactured by whirlpool, F6 apparently means "Microwave relay failure. Check wiring to relay 4903 for short circuits."
Talk to your local service shop and see if they will replace a microwave relay... they should be able to give you a parts and labour estimate before they begin so you will know what you are in for.

I had this same error. It appeared to be a stuck relay. With the door open, unplug the microwave. Then whack on either side of the keypad a couple times. This fixed mine.
