"F06" is a motor speed error. The following link explains:

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

The link provided will give you the necessary steps to diagnose the problem yourself (yes, this a DIY project). All you need is a simple multimeter. I would begin by checking all the wiring to ensure you have nothing loose or broken. Then, I would recommend checking the motor windings. This would potentially rule out the first two possibilities by confirming whether or not the motor and wiring harness are good. That would leave the Motor Control Unit to troubleshoot. More commonly, the MCU fails causing this error. I'm not saying this is your problem, however. You will need to follow the steps provided to rule out all possibilities.

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

PS If you do require parts. You can order on line at searspartsdirect.com. Repairclininc.com also carries parts for your washer if you would like to do some comparative shopping. There are other web sources out there, but I have found that these two have good service and are usually the lowest priced.

The drum in my washer will not rotate. Are they belt or direct drive?


Every washer I have dealt with have all been direct driven through a transmission. There are several reasons that a washer drum will not rotate. The simplest reason is that the door interlock is not functioning properly.

Error Code 01 F06


Your fault is mentioned here.

An F06 fault code in a Whirlpool Duet washer (the Kenmore HE3/4t's are also made by Whirlpool) usually means a motor-related problem. It usually pops up when the drum won't rotate at all or only very sluggishly. Here's the excerpt from the Whirlpool Duet Service Manual on this:

What does Error code F06 mean


Try this:
Possible Causes / Procedure1. Verify the shipping system including shipping bolts, spacers
and cables are removed.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections between the drive motor and
the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the
Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
5. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor.
6. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.

What does the F06 error code on the Kenmore Elite HE3 washer mean?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error F06 in your whirlpool duet indicates that the control is unable to properly detect the motor speed and so the washer shuts down. This usually occurs during high speed spin and the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes. To resolve this issue you’ll have to check the wire harness connections between the Driver motor and the Motor control unit (MCU). If that is fine then check the connection between the MCU & central control unit (CCU), replace the part that has gone bad. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

My kenmore Elite HE3t Giving a code F 06


"F06" is a Motor Speed error code. This is an indication that there is a problem with the Drive Motor, Tachometer, Motor Control Unit (MCU), Central Control Unit (CCU) and/or interconnecting wiring between the all these components. The following link explains:

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

I would begin by checking all the connector plugs between the CCU, MCU and Drive Motor to ensure none of them are loose or have corroded contacts.

Read through the link and follow the steps provided. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps.

NOTE: The majority of the time this failure is attributed to a bad tachometer which is located on the MCU. If defective, the MCU must be replaced. There is a technical data sheet that comes with the washer. It is located inside the washer behind the lower toe panel directly below the door. The panel comes off by removing the screws located under bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet is not located directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. Included are all the diagnostics and troubleshooting advice for your washer, including diagrams to show test points. HINT: For better access to the screws you can prop the two front feet of the washer up using a 2 x 4.

F06 error code on Whirlpool duet washer


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.
