Can anyone tell me what F06 error code means on the whirlpool 6th sense 10kg washer? and what to do about it as the screen is flashing but the door to the machine is locked. Thanks


F06 Drive motor tachometer error This error occurs when the main control unit fails to detect the motor speed from the tachometeric generator fitted to the motor either through an incorrect resistance or the tacho is not correctly fitted into place. The machine will try to detect the reading several times before aborting the program ans shutting down with this error being displayed.
When checking ensure that the drive belt and belt tension are okay as this can cause this error.
  • Check tacho resistance
  • check tacho placement
  • Check wiring for shorts
  • Check wiring harness connections between motor and main controller
  • Check drive belt for damage and tension

I have a Kenmore HE3, with an intermittent F06 error. It seemed like heavier...


This advice is for Kenmore Elite HE and Whirlpool Duet FRONT LOADER washing machines displaying the "F06" error code. 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.

I hope this information is helpful.

Indesit 123 FAULT F06


I had this error and engineer said the meaning of the codes on the web are wrong as they don't like to disclose their real code meanings for pure protectionism reasons. F06 on IWD7145 is a burnt out door interlock IDC error. He replaced the part number C00085194 (replacement door interlock) and microritardator part number 085194 and it works ok now.

What does F06 mean?


F06 error code indicates a motor tachometer failure on most Kenmore Elite front load washers. There are many different models, so I would need the model number of your washer to be sure.

This type of problem could be caused by loose wiring connections between the motor and the motor control board. It could also be caused by loose wiring connections between the motor control board and the main machine control board. Other problems that could cause this fault code include:
A failed drive motor.
A defective motor control board.
A failed main machine control board.

Hope thie helps (remember to rate and comment this answer)

My kenmore is showing an f 06 code


F06 is a communication error between the central control circuit board and the motor control circuit board, Check the wire harness that goes to all your connectors on the Motor, MCU, and CCU. I have seen a loose wire connector do this F06 error.

If all checks ok, then its like a faulty CCU, check your owners manual, some are covered under warranty for up to 5 yrs.

I have a kenmore elite 3 that flashes f06


"F06" is a Motor Speed error code. This could indicate a problem with the drive motor, motor control unit (MCU), interconnecting wiring, or the tachometer (part of the MCU). The following link explains:

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

I would begin by checking all the wiring and connector plugs between the MCU and drive motor. Vibration from the washer can cause the connectors to come loose. Also check them for any signs of corrosion that may be causing poor contact.

Measure the motor windings to see if they are still within specs. Bad motor windings could generate the error code as well.

Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps you.

F06 error


Unplugging it sometimes corrects the problem. However, it must be unplugged for SEVERAL minutes.then start it again i think it ll set it ok becuase sometimes it all sets it right.
or
Check the wire harness that goes to all your connectors on the Motor, MCU, and CCU. I have seen a loose wire connector do this F06 error.

If all checks ok, then its like a faulty CCU, check your owners manual, some are covered under warranty for up to 5 yrs.

now check the CCU,MCU and Motor any one of these must be faulty that will only lead to F06 error.

WILL HE4T RUN WITH KICK PANEL AND BACK PANEL OFF?


The washer will run without the panels in place. As a technician it is common practice to troubleshoot with the bottom panel and/or back panel removed in order to see if certain components are working. The "F06" error is a motor speed problem. With this fault, the washer will shut down if the motor speed is not detected, or reach optimum rpms. The fault is usually caused by a failure of the Motor Control Unit (MCU) or Drive Motor. The following link explains how to troubleshoot:
