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. Catriver..post back.

My compliments that you have determined that error code F06 indicates drive motor tach error. This relates to the controller board not sensing that the motor is spinning. This could be attributed to three (3) possibilities:

"F06" is a Motor Speed Error. The following link explains:
Read through the link provided and let me know if you have questions. In most cases this problem is attributed to a tachometer failure on the Motor Control Unit (MCU). If the this is the case, the MCU must be replaced.
If you require additional assistance, let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
