SOURCE: Het3 Washer - F06 Code

dragon, drop the bottom panel by removing the 3 screws on the bottom, pull down and off. On the right side attached to the bottom of the door switch (on the inside) is a teardrop release tab. Pull down on it and the door will open. The F06 code is a motor tachometer error. The control is unable to detect the motor speed. While you have the panel off, check the harness that goes from the motor to the motor control board. The motor control board is the one on the bottom. Reseat the harness's for a good connection. If you can use a meter, check the motor windings, pins 1 to 2, 2 to 3 and 1 to 3 should read approx 6 ohms. Next, take the top off the washer by removing the 3 screws in back and sliding the top off toward the back. The main control board is in back. Make sure all the harness's are seated good. The third harnes from the right is the motor control power, reseat it. On the left side of the board, last harness toward the back is the serial communication link. Reseat it. On the motor control board on the bottom the communication link is the one toward the bottom, the center one is the motor connector and the top one is the power supply. If this doesn't solve the problem and your motor ohms out. I would tend to believe that the motor control board is the problem. back.

SOURCE: Inglis washer stops on rinse

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to or and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...

FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.

If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.

Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Washer stops during normal wash cycle for a minute or more, and then continues. Would replacing the timer fix it?

If it actually goes on and finishes the cycle and that really bothers you replace it. If not leave it alone and allow a little more time to complete its cycle. The lid switch only keeps the spin cycle from going with the top open.

Washer stops during rinse cycle and isn't easily restartable....

Sounds like the contacts in the timer has a problem. Unplug washer. Remove the back of the washer and spray WD40 in the timer. Put towels around and under to to collect excess runoff.
Rrotate washer dial 25 times and spray some more wd40. Rotate 25 times again. Do a wash load. If it works put everting back together.

Kenmore sideby side fridge

You have a defrost system problem. Defrost is controlled by a timer which energizes the heater circuit. The heater circuit has a radiant or cal rod type heater which melts the frost from the coil. When the coil reaches a temperature where all ice would be gone a termination switch opens and shuts of the heater. The timer will continue to run until defrost time expires (18-22 minutes).

If you can locate the timer there is a clutch head screw to advance the timer to the defrost position. Turn the screw clockwise SLOWLY until you hear one audible click. The heaters should come on and defrost take place. If the unit restarts after the 18-22 minute period the timer is good, if it does not restart advance the screw to a second audible click and it will restart.
If you had to turn the timer the to second click to get it started cooling replace the timer.

If the unit restarted after the 18-22 minutes and defrost did not happen your problem is in the heater circuit. This would be an open heater or bad defrost terminator switch. To access the heater and defrost terminator the back panel in the freezer section must be removed. With an Ohm meter you can check the heater to see if it is good.

I have a Frigidaire Gallery model plhs267za. The refrigator doesn't freeze or emits cold air. When I turne it off for a coule of days it works again. The technician says compressor is ok as weel as fan...

Freezer coil is plugging up with frost, Your problem is defrost timer or heater related. If it is the timer you can located the timer and rotate the Clutch screw for the timer, turn it very slowly Clockwise until you hear one click. The compressor will shut off and the defrost heaters will turn on. Waite about 25-30 minutes and if the refrigerator does not restart (Normal time would be 18-22 minutes) rotate the screw again clockwise small amount and it will start cooling. Observe the drain pan for defrost water. If the refrigerator restarted (18-22 minutes) and no water is in the drain pan you problem is defrost heaters. If after the 25-30 minutes the refrigerator did not restart on its own and water is in the drain pan your problem is the defrost timer.

Fault code 01

this is actually a fault code error code 1 not one minute check your manual as codes different on some machines from memory i think 1 is a filling fault this machine uses fuzzy logic if water fill takes longer than 4 mins (low pressure) machine stops can be restarted by pressing start button.
see if machine will complete just a rinse cycle.

good luck
