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.

Appreciate the "Ask Me".

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:

  • motor is not really turning/stuck, a replacement is required;
  • motor is turning but the sensor attached to it is defective and therefore not sending signals to the controller board. Pls check the terminals/connectors/wirings; and/or
  • the controller board input circuitry is defective. It does not register any input from the motor's RPM sensor. This could be a diode, resistor or logic IC. This would be component level repair requiring familiarity with electronic circuitry and components, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It wold be easier to replace the entire controller board..
In some instances, it could just be the motor's capacitor that is defective. The capacitor provides the initial kick for the motor to start running. Failure on the capacitor will not kick start hence motor will not start hence RPM sensor says to controller board motor not running.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

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
