    I have the same problem. It is very annoying. We paid a lot of money for this machine,

    now I wish I had gone with the same brand that we had for 15 years without ever giving us a problem. Not worth the cost.

Unplug the machine and wait 10 minutes before restarting it.
The system should reset!
FIRST before you restart it try the door when the plug is out!
If this does not remedy the situation you will need a hands on service call!
how old is the washer??
Let me know!

Remove the rectangular fascia at the bottom front of the machine - on my model you only need a coin to turn the two plastic screws. Unclip the black rubber drain pipe, remove the plug from the end and drain the water into a bowl (or several bowls).

Then undo the round plug at the bottom left of the machine (more water will come out) which will give you access to the extractor pump. Check that there are no obstructions in there and that the small propeller in there can turn freely.

If there is no obstruction there then we move onto the next steps.

If you can figure out how to remove the front of the machine then you will find this part easier

First, TURN OFF THE POWER. Then, on the front of the machine, on the bottom left, undo the screws that fasten the extractor pump onto the front of the machine. Then pull the machine out from the wall so that you can get to the back of it. Remove the back of the machine by taking out the ten or so screws.

Looking in from the back: At the bottom-front-right of the machine you will see the extractor pump. It will have two hoses attached to it - a fat one and a slightly thinner one. Reach into the bottom of the machine and remove the power plug from the back of the extractor pump. Then, using a pair of pliers (or something similar) to open the spring clip, remove the thinner of the two hoses (the drain hose) from the pump unit. This can be fiddly - especially if you're doing it from the back of the machine.

Pull the hose out of the machine and check it for obstructions. If there are no obstructions in there then move onto the next step.

Reach back into the machine and, again using the pliers, remove the fatter tube from the pump. Remove the pump from the machine and check it for obstructions in the entry and exit holes, and also make sure that the propeller isn't obstructed. Then shake and squeeze the fatter tube to see if there is an obstruction in there
Best of luck.

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.

SOURCE: I keep getting an error

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

In general Whirlpool's Error 05 points to an NTC failure.
'NTC' stands for 'Negative Temperature Co-efficient' or water temperature thermostat in real terms!
One way of hopefully getting around the problem is first to ensure the washer is empty then pour the contents of a boiling kettle into it. That can sometimes kick the device into correct action. It's worth a try anyway before having to call in the repair man ;-0)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

the error is linked to the float switch at the base of the dishwasher. Without model number and some description of the condition of the dishwasher leading to the fault code would be helpful.

E06 error--how do you get rid of flashing this error and what causes it in the first place. Thanks


Finally resolved this on our own tub. We had C01 and E06 error alternating. After gaining access to the service door for the tub, I was able to determine that the ribbon cable for the water detector going to the electronics box on the back of the pump had become loose. After plugging it back in and then powering off/on the pump, the blinking light on the back of the pump went back to solid and the error on the control panel eliminated.
