Kenmore HE4 Front Load Washer - F06 Code

I have a Kenmore HE4 front load washer that keeps giving a code of F06, apparently there are several items that may be linked to this code (not in manual). From what I have read the main culprit seems to be a hub where all the connections come together that control the machine, especially the drum motor. It says to either check all connections for loose wire plus and/or check wire plug metal prongs for corrosion, clean if found, and then reconnect. I prefer to repair myself to save money...do you know where I might be able to find a copy of the design drawing for this washer showing where all the parts are located inside?

"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.

I just replaced the MCU and found that the top of the two large capacitores on the unit had domed, instead of being perfectly flat. I have an electronics background, so I know thats not normal. Just one more thing to look at if your trying to determine if the problem is the motor or the MCU. If the motor ohms out good, I would take a look at those caps..

Have you cleaned your machine lately? They make an in wash boost- it gets rid of the extra suds built up inside the machine that you cant see but your machine detects it and causes faults such as that. Also, there is a small wire on the control board that may need replaced if it keeps kicking the error code.

What does F06 mean?


F06 error code indicates a motor tachometer failure on most Kenmore Elite front load washers. There are many different models, so I would need the model number of your washer to be sure.

This type of problem could be caused by loose wiring connections between the motor and the motor control board. It could also be caused by loose wiring connections between the motor control board and the main machine control board. Other problems that could cause this fault code include:
A failed drive motor.
A defective motor control board.
A failed main machine control board.

Hope thie helps (remember to rate and comment this answer)

My kenmore Elite HE3t Giving a code F 06


"F06" is a Motor Speed error code. This is an indication that there is a problem with the Drive Motor, Tachometer, Motor Control Unit (MCU), Central Control Unit (CCU) and/or interconnecting wiring between the all these components. The following link explains:

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

I would begin by checking all the connector plugs between the CCU, MCU and Drive Motor to ensure none of them are loose or have corroded contacts.

Read through the link and follow the steps provided. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps.

NOTE: The majority of the time this failure is attributed to a bad tachometer which is located on the MCU. If defective, the MCU must be replaced. There is a technical data sheet that comes with the washer. It is located inside the washer behind the lower toe panel directly below the door. The panel comes off by removing the screws located under bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet is not located directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. Included are all the diagnostics and troubleshooting advice for your washer, including diagrams to show test points. HINT: For better access to the screws you can prop the two front feet of the washer up using a 2 x 4.

Check the drain pump. There may be something jammed it it, causing it to overload, and bringing up the fault code.
