Question about Whirlpool GHW9400 Duet Washer
My wife posted this challenge. Here's some additional photos. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or cell; 801.735.9555 Comment by bryged, posted on Nov 08, 2008 I heard a noise that sounded like a bug zapper. Now, I get the F06 error. The tub does not spin. Here's the photos. HELP!
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.

F 06 is a in issue with the motor control board, check the wiring harness attached to the board next to the motor in your second to last pic you sent.

I also had code F06 I unplugged and plugged all of the connectors on the motor and on the motor control unit several times insuring that i had a good connection on all connectors, I then plugged in the washer and ran a load. this simple fix seems to have solved the problem. I have since ran several loads with out a problem.

SOURCE: f06 error
The Duet washer is a good machine, just unfortunate Whirlpool engineers used
oxidative circuit board coatings. All the circuit board
connections are oxidizing causing the machines to have faulty connections.
We have fixed the problem using this information.
UNPLUG the machine first . Take the top off (3 screws in the back) , remove the mother board box from the frame housing and remove the lid. Now you can see the circuit board.
Carefully remove ONLY one (clip plug-in) at a time. Scrap with a (knife or sandpaper or steel wool ) the edge connector where that plug was, on the circuit board removing the oxidated metal (it may not look oxidated but must be cleaned), Next put ( vaseline or mineral oil) on the edge connector where that plug was, NOTE: Vaseline or mineral oil is a non-conductive oil and will not effect electronic operation but will prevent further oxidation and the erratic operation of the mother board will cease.
Now do the next plug and repeat until completed.
NOTE: We recommend only one plug at a time so you do not get confused where each plug belongs.
Put the cover back on the mother board box and reattach to the frame, then put the lid back on and screw it down. End of any F error problems.
