    Tech came out 11-28-2008 did not have parts to fix problem and could not get ok from central call center he was told over phonme that if machine did not f06 not to do anything. 10 minutes after leaving f06 error code again called tech on his phone and advised of f06 told he could not do a thing to fix at the moment. Called Sears central and was told that for a $10 fee tech would be out in the am 11-29-2008 waited and no show. Went online and was told to reschedule for 12-06-2008 am. Starting to get really pissed at the whole process. Washer is under warranty and now has to be referred to the lemon law dept. In the mean while tech has to come out and take one more shot at a repair. This way they can say it is a lemon and replace it. Finally did the diagnostic test and got f06 right after the test started!!!!!

    It is their tactic. The program has a problem (I realized it) the motor has no problem at all. He ran the diagnostic as well, and with his magic hand the wash machine started (finished the cycle) completely. However, he said to throw the wash machine out and replace the motor which is the same price like another one or there's a cloth in it between might have stuck in. I asked him if you were able to finish the cycle, and change the error code somehow, some way at the back clicking little parts, why do you say the motor has a problem? Why didn't you take the cloth out of it then?

What is error code f06?


The F/06 is:
Drive Motor Tachometer Error
The control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes.

The tech. should check these:

Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
Check the Drive Motor
Check the MCU
Check the Wire Harness

Front load whirlpool reads codes f06 e02 tech told me it was the pump just need to know what u guys think?


Unfortunately F06 E02 is a very bad error. It means you have an interface communication error. That means that the main control board isn't communicating with the front interface control board. You can pull the washer out and remove the 3 screws coming in from the back of the top panel. Next, the top panel will pull straight back, up, and off. Now check all the wire connections between the two control board and make sure they are all secure. If everything looks good, then the interface control board will need to be ordered and replaced.
THIS IS WHAT I HAVE FOUND OUT FOR YOU ON SEVERAL FORUMS ON THE INTERNET BUT IT WOULD BE EASIER TO RING AN EXPERT BUT I HAVE FOUND OUT IT WILL COST ABOUT 150 TO FIX

The washer will start as normal then start beeping and flash F06. we had a tech look at it and he claimed the two boards weren't communicating as they should. he never fixed it and it's still doing the...


F06 is a drive motor tachometer error. this error code really needs hand on diagnostics because their are many wiring and component checks ..This is usually a drive motor concern but could also be a machine control board, or the wiring associated with both components .This could become a very expensive repair without a proper diagnosis.. Sorry I couldn't be of more help

Error code f06 model 11045089404


"F6" is a Motor Speed error problem. It is commonly attributed to either a broken or slipped drive belt, defective Drive Motor, bad Motor Control Unit (MCU), and/or the interconnecting wiring. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608706-f06_error_code

First, remove the back panel of the unit and make sure the drive belt is not broken, or has not slipped off the drum pulley.

Then, remove the top panel of the washer and check all the connector plugs between the Drive Motor, MCU and Central Control Unit (CCU). Check for loose connections and then unplug each connector and plug them back in (one at a time) to ensure they are snug and making good contact. The top panel comes off by removing the three screws that hold it in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then off.

NOTE: You only need to check the connectors that affect the drive motor and MCU circuitry.

The MCU has a tachometer mounted on it. If it is determined to be the cause of the problem, it is considered part of the MCU and cannot be replaced separately. The MCU is not serviceable and will require replacement.

Next, check the motor windings to ensure they are reading the proper resistance. Followed by continuity checks of all the interconnecting wiring between the drive motor, MCU and CCU. You should not need a service manual because each one of these washers comes with a technical data sheet.

For more in depth troubleshooting tips refer to your tech sheet located inside the washer behind the lower toe panel. You will need to locate and remove the screws under the bottom front edge of the toe panel. Once removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet isn't located directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. The tech sheet includes all error codes, test points, diagnostic procedures and helpful illustrations to assist in troubleshooting and repair of your washer.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartrsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.
If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

F6????


The F06 error code on the HE3 elite is a tachometer error. Per the tech sheet, it says to check all connections and continuity between the MCU, CCU and Drive Motor. The tech sheet says normal reading is at 6 ohms.

"F06" is a Motor Speed error. The following link explains how to troubleshoot:

If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know.

NOTE: For better access to the toe panel screws, you can prop the two front feet of the washer up. (A 2x4 works real well for this.)

Kenmore HE4 Front Load Washer - F06 Code


"F06" is a Motor Speed error code. The following link explains:

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

First of all, with any error code you get on these washers, they can be erroneous. Unplug the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes, first, in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). If the error code returns following a reset, then you have a genuine problem.

Double check all your wiring harness connections to the Drive Motor and Motor Control Unit (MCU), next. Sometimes these connectors can either vibrate loose, or develop some corrosion. Inspect them and clean if necessary. Double check the continuity of the harness wiring from the MCU to the Drive Motor.

Check the resistance of the motor windings. Instructions provided in the link.

Verify the proper voltage readings at the MCU.

There should be a tech sheet affixed to the inside of the washer cabinet that lists all the components and what all your measurements should read. To acccess all the components for troubleshooting, remove the back panel of the washer.

If you have problems or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

F-06 error code


ck all wiring connections from motor to motor control to main control on top rear rail f06 means main control can't detect motor speed when you say mcu i assume you mean the motor control bd next to motor they and the motor both have given very few problems in our area i suspect the ccu (central control unit) is the most likely cause

Machine shuts down and flashes F 06


"F06" is a Motor Speed error code. The following link explains:

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

Now BEFORE you assume you have a component failure, the manufacturer recommends unplugging the washer for at least 30 minutes to reset the computer. In many cases this is all it takes to clear common "glitches" in the system. If the error reappears, follow the advice in the link by first checking all your connections on the Motor Control Unit (MCU) and Drive Motor. Then take resistance checks of your motor windings. The link gives you all this information.

To answer your initial question, there should be a tech sheet included with your washer that explains all the error codes and how to troubleshoot them. The manufacturer places this inside the washer behind the lower panel under the door. It will be located either on the back of the panel, or on the interior wall of the case. I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

PS If you locate your tech sheet, it is recommended that you leave it inside the appliance so you know where it is. The most common thing that consumers do is remove the tech sheet for safe keeping, then forget where it is.
