The F6 error on a Whirlpool Duet means that the control unit doesn't know the drum RPM speed during the spin cycle. It occurs with a number of problems. The problem could be with the MCU (motor control unit) or the wiring between the motor and the MCU. Next you should check the wiring between the MCU and the CCU (main clock). A problem with the door lock or that wiring could also cause the issue. Finally, the bearing on which the drum spins is bad.

The MCU is the most likely faulty part unless you find a wiring problem. (The wiring harness has a number of small wires connected to it; it's not uncommon for one wire in the group to break while the rest are intact.) Inside the washer's front panel, there should be a wiring diagram with additional information on some diagnostic steps.

If you can't easily spin the drum by hand, then the bearing is a likely suspect.

I hope this helps.

I have an f6 code and the machine will not operate once it comes up


The F6 error code means that the computer on the control didnt detect that the motor reached a high speed on the spin cycle, sometimes it thinks the washer didnt spin fast enough because of a loose wire connection either on the motor or the control boards (motor &machine control) if you find that the washer did actually spin at high speed (clothes dont come out sopping wet at the end of cycle) the wire connections or the motor control board will be the potential causes of the F6 error code. Try unplugging the machine for five minutes to let the computer reset then try again. Next check the control panel wires. f6 code flashing on display Kenmore Elite HE3 Washing Machine
