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..

Flashes error code F06


Check the wire harness that goes to all your connectors on the Motor, MCU, and CCU. I have seen a loose wire connector do this F06 error.

If all checks ok, then its a faulty CCU that needs to be replaced. Here is the part.

I have a Kenmore Elite HE4T quietpak 9 washer. It has stopped the wash load with about 11 minutes left several times. It gives and error code DL then F alternating. The door remains locked and anytime...


Hi,

The error you have is due to a failure in the door latch mechanism. There is a way to manually open the door if you are a little handy I can send you some instructions, it requires pulling the lower panel off (3 screws).

Let me know if you want me to help on this.

Kenmore Elite quiet pack washer quit. Please help!


The F70 and F71 error codes on this model of washer indicates a communication problem between the user interface control board and the central control unit (main control board). These error codes can sometimes be caused by a power surge or glitch through the electrical lines. Try unplugging the washer to completely disconnect electrical power. Wait 1 minute and then plug the washer back in to the see if the fault code clears. If it does, then the washer may work normally.

If the code reappears, then you could have a wire harness connection problem, a failed user interface control board or a failed central control unit. I recommend calling a service technician to properly diagnose and repair this type of problem so that the correct component can be replaced.


Be sure your unit is plugged into a 3 prong grounded outlet as well.


F71 is a "heatbeat failure" which means that your front interface control board is shorted and will need to be replaced. it's actually fairly easy to replace and can definitely be done by yourself. To access the part, just pull the unit forward and remove the 3 screws coming in from the back of the top panel. Remove the top panel by pulling it back, up, and off. Then remove all the screws going into the top of the control panel. Remove the dispenser drawer and remove the screws coming in through the dispenser. Remove the screws coming from the inside of the dryer going forward into the control panel, then remove the control panel (it's just clipped in on the bottom. After that you can disconnect the wire harnesses to the front interface control board and replace that part.

F Code for the Kenmore Elite he4t Front Load Washer (3 years old)


Hi! ricksmith
What is the first three digits of the model number.
The he4t I have reference to does not have a "F" code error. Most of the codes are two digit, PF, F1 to F9 etc.
You could try: Pressing Pause/Cancel two times to clear code. As well as unplug for 20 seconds. Do you have power fluctuations in your area.
