    The large burner element on my GE JP670 electric cooktop would come on and off intermittently. Sometimes it would not come on at all. Other times after it came on and was heating the food it would go off. I replaced the burner element, but it still does the same thing. If the problem is the infinite switch. Where is it located in the cooktop and how do I replace it?

"F06" is a Motor Speed error code. It means the motor is not spinning, or you have a loss of commuincations between the Motor Control Unit (MCU), Central Control Unit (CCU) or Drive Motor. The following link explains:

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

The easiest place to start would be to verify all your connections between the Drive Motor and MCU are intact and not corroded. Then, perform resistance checks on the Drive Motor windings.

For ease of troubleshooting, UNPLUG the washer and remove the top panel by removing the three screws that hold it in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then off. Position the washer where you have full access to the rear. Remove the back panel of washer. With the top and back removed you will have full access to the CCU, MCU and Drive Motor.

If you have questions along the way, or if you require addtional assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Can anyone tell me what F06 error code means on the whirlpool 6th sense 10kg washer? and what to do about it as the screen is flashing but the door to the machine is locked. Thanks


F06 Drive motor tachometer error This error occurs when the main control unit fails to detect the motor speed from the tachometeric generator fitted to the motor either through an incorrect resistance or the tacho is not correctly fitted into place. The machine will try to detect the reading several times before aborting the program ans shutting down with this error being displayed.
When checking ensure that the drive belt and belt tension are okay as this can cause this error.
  • Check tacho resistance
  • check tacho placement
  • Check wiring for shorts
  • Check wiring harness connections between motor and main controller
  • Check drive belt for damage and tension

How do you fix a fault F06 on a Whirlpool front loader washing machine


The "F06" fault code indicates a drive motor tachometer error. This means the control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down. If the failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will unlock after 3 minutes. Possible Causes/Procedure: Unplug washer or disconnect the power supply. Check the wire harness connections between the motor and motor control unit and the harness connections between the motor control unit (MCU) and the Central Control Unit (CCU). Based on your symptom and details, the intermittent (F06) error code is likely a loose connection in the harness between the motor and the (MCU) or between the (MCU) and the (CCU). It could also be the tachometer circuit in the motor or an intermittent internal component connection within the (MCU). Since the (CCU) has already been replaced, the failure is likely a loose harness connection or the (MCU). I recommend calling the repair person back out to re-diagnose the failure. by Joey S MARCH 1ST, 2010 ' Be the first to comment

Whirlpool AWOE9120 Fault code F06


It means your motor has some misconnection signal between the motor, the MCU (motor control unit) and the CCU (Center control unit). Most of the case, the sensor inside the motor getting bad, you need to replace the whole motor.

Often fails to execute spin cycle with error F06


THE F6 MEANS THE CONTROL IS NOT GETTING A READING FROM THE TACHOMETER ON THE MOTOR. CHECK THE CONNECTIONS FROM THE MOTOR TO THE MOTOR CONTROLLER,(THE CONTROL BOARD MOUNTED TO THE BASE).

for this u may

  • Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check the Drive Motor
  • Check the MCU
  • Check the Wire Harness

W/pool awm8143 not finishing cycle fault F06 flashing on display


I had this same problem, an intermittent F06 fault.  The F06 code means a tachometer fault.  After some fault-finding, I did manage to fix it.  If this error code happens to you and you know a bit about electronics, try taking apart the timer and looking for dry joints between the main board and the perpendicularly-mounted microprocessor board. Over time vibration can cause the soldered joints between the two boards to crack and fail intermittently. 10 minutes to disassemble plus 2 minutes with a soldering iron could save you a $400 repair bill.
The service manual is available for download on the web if you google hard enough.  If you have a CRO available, the tacho waveform should be a nicely-formed sine wave with a frequency proportional to the RPM.
