SOURCE: F6 PROBLEM WHIRPOOL WASHING MACHINE

The error is an indication a motor speed problem. You will need to check the following:

- Check the wiring harness. Verify all connections between the Drive Motor, Motor Control Unit (MCU), and Central Control Unit (CCU).

NOTE: The MCU is a circuit board located in the vicinity of the Drive Motor on the bottom rear of the washer. To access the MCU, you will need to remove the back panel of the washer.

NOTE: The CCU is the main computer for the washer and is located behind the wash tub. You will need to remove the top panel to access the CCU. This is accomplished by removing the three screws in the back of the washer that hold the top in place. Once the screws are removed, the top panel will slide back, then lift off.

- Check the Drive Motor. Perform a continuity check of the Drive Motor windings. Remove the connector plug and check across pins 1 to 2, 2 to 3, and 1 to 3. All readings should be approximately 6 ohms. HINT: You can also take this reading by removing connector 2 from the MCU and measuring across pins 1, 2 and 3. If the readings are good, this will also prove the wiring and connector good.

- Check the MCU. The connectors are numbered 1 to 3 (L to R). That is, with the MCU installed, connector 1 is on the bottom, followed by 2 in the middle, and 3 on top.

Connector 1 - is the serial communications link between the MCU and CCU and has three wires. At the opposite end, this will be the 2nd connector from the rear on the left-hand side of the CCU.
Connector 2 - is the link between the MCU and the Drive Motor. Pins 1, 2, and 3 on this connector are the Drive Motor windings. Pins 4 and 5 are for the tachometer.
Connector 3 – is the primary power connector. Pins 1 to 2 should read 120VAC with the door in the locked position. Pin 3 is ground. At the opposite end, this is the 4th connector from the right on the front of the CCU.

NOTE: All the connector pins are numbered R to L.

If your continuity readings are normal for the Drive Motor and you have verified all connectors, replace the MCU.

If any of the Drive Motor windings indicate readings higher that 6 ohms, replace the Drive Motor.

I have have a 10 year old Kenmore Hood/Microwave combo built by Whirpool. I'm getting an F6 error code. What is the error code trying to tell me?


F6 —Microwave Relay Failure: Check the microwave relay.

The F6 error code which is flashing on your microwave refers to a faulty relay. However, I would suggest that you first try to run a diagnostic (which you may not be able to, but it is beneficial if it works). Here is how:

The microwave oven may be provided with a self diagnostic routine that can be operated through the touch pad keyboard. To enter the self-diagnostic routine:
1.While pressing the CANCEL keypad:
a) Open the oven door.
b) Unplug the microwave oven for 2-seconds and plug it back in.
c) Release the CANCEL keypad and close the oven door.

NOTE: The humidity sensor test results will appear on the display after 8-seconds.If the tests are successful, "OK " will be displayed. If one or more of the tests fail, "ERR " will be displayed.. 2.When a keypad is pressed, a number according to the test chart will be displayed. When no keypad is pressed, a blank "—" is displayed.
If you want to try to fix it your self, Always remember Electricity is dangerous and should be treated with respect.
Microwaves are very dangerous, they can still shock you even unplugged!!
Use a metal ( not the shiny chrome type ) screw driver with a insulated handle to short across ( touch both at the same time ) the terminals of the high voltage capacitor to discharge it. With the microwave unplugged.

Hope that helps.........

Whirpool microwave start when the door is closed. Replaced the damaged interlocks and tested the door switches


Chances are you have a shorted cook relay, especially if you get error code "F6."

If you're in the US or Canada, I regularly repair and upgrade these with the aim of correcting and preventing such errors.

For details, please feel free to contact me via my site below.

Always include your FULL model number*, FCC ID number*, and detailed symptom information. * from the tag in the cooking cavity or elsewhere on the oven (or send a clear photo of tag)

Errore F6


Errore F6 (F06) significa problemi con il motore, o con gli ingranaggi di trasmissione del motore.
La scheda di controllo della tua lavatrice rileva che il motore non sta girando alla velocita' richiesta o e' guasto.

Di solito , quando questo si verifica il tecnico controlla il motore, la trasmissione (motor coupling), l'unita di controllo del motore MCU (motor control unit), e sostituisce la parte difettosa.

Controlla questo link per avere piu dettagli su come risolvere il problema.

Non dimenticarti di votare la soluzione, possibilmente con quattro rombi azzurri.

Grazie.

Cant find my SATA HDD


Yes - find the chipset for the motherboard - go on intel website for that chipset - download the utility for F6 use [sata driver or raid controller] put these files on floppy or USB key - boot motherboard and when it says press F6 to instal SCSI or other drivers press F6 - the software will ask where the files are - use the correct file and carry on running the windows installation. This time your sata hard drive will be recognised and you can complete loading windows.

Please rate my assistance - thank you.
