F-06 failure light on Kenmore HE Elite

Kenmore HE Elite gets through half the cycle and F-06 signal goes off. I tried to drain/spin and F-06 goes off again. The main control board was replaced 5-07; after similar problems occurred. I don't want another $400 bill to get the washer working again!

Re: F-06 failure light on Kenmore HE Elite

Unplugging it sometimes corrects the problem. However, it must be unplugged for SEVERAL minutes. If that does not work then check the wire harness that goes to all your connectors on the Motor, MCU, and CCU. A loose wire connector can give this F06 error. Carefully disconnect and reconnect every wiring plug on the Washer. Try it to see if it is working. If not, then its like a faulty CCU, check your owners manual, some are covered under warranty for up to 5 yrs.

Code 06

In the manual for a Kenmore washer the instruction for an F06 code (electrical problem) is :

Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Select DRAIN/SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer. Re-select cycle and press START.

After that, you might try unplugging then plugging it in again.

Kenmore Elite Quiet 2 Model 45862402

When the machine drains can you hear the water going into the drain? I thinking your pump is not pumping from debris or the drain hose to far in the drain. The kick panel below the door has three screws 1/4 or Torx T20. There is a clean out left side of the pump, the large screw handle removes and does have some water behind it so wrap a trash bag around the clean out before opening.

Kenmore Elite HE4t Washer - "Control Locked"

I had the same problem. If you will hold the "Drain & Spin button" in for approximately 4 to 5 seconds it unlocks the " Control Locked" issue.
