My F06 E05 error returns within a moment of clearing all errors. My Maxima has no tach line from the M to the MCU. MCU commo fault is a different error. So does anyone except Maytag really know what this error is? And Maytag only wants to send a service guy to bleed some money from you.

Hi,

Appreciate the "Ask Me".

My compliments that you have determined that error code F06 indicates drive motor tach error. This relates to the controller board not sensing that the motor is spinning. This could be attributed to three (3) possibilities:

  • motor is not really turning/stuck, a replacement is required;
  • motor is turning but the sensor attached to it is defective and therefore not sending signals to the controller board. Pls check the terminals/connectors/wirings; and/or
  • the controller board input circuitry is defective. It does not register any input from the motor's RPM sensor. This could be a diode, resistor or logic IC. This would be component level repair requiring familiarity with electronic circuitry and components, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It wold be easier to replace the entire controller board..
In some instances, it could just be the motor's capacitor that is defective. The capacitor provides the initial kick for the motor to start running. Failure on the capacitor will not kick start hence motor will not start hence RPM sensor says to controller board motor not running.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: F06 Error Code

"F06" is a Motor Speed Error. The following link explains:

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

Read through the link provided and let me know if you have questions. In most cases this problem is attributed to a tachometer failure on the Motor Control Unit (MCU). If the this is the case, the MCU must be replaced.

If you require additional assistance, let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

SOURCE: My maytag washer model MFW9600SQ0 has an F06 error

The F06 is a drive motor tachometer failure which means the motor control is not able to see the motor is running. This can be a difficult problem to pin down, but there are some things you can do yourself if you like. Check the connections between the motor control and motor. Also check connections on the central control are all tight. Push on all of the connections and see if there is any improvement.

Error Code 01 F06


Your fault is mentioned here.

An F06 fault code in a Whirlpool Duet washer (the Kenmore HE3/4t's are also made by Whirlpool) usually means a motor-related problem. It usually pops up when the drum won't rotate at all or only very sluggishly. Here's the excerpt from the Whirlpool Duet Service Manual on this:

Washer error F06 E01


The error codes F6 E1 for Maytag Maxima 6000 front load washer means that the MCU AND CCU are not communicating. You need to check the wiring and plugs to make sure they have a good connection.

Washer will not run


f06 OR e02 error code means you have an interface communication error. the main control board isn't communicating with the front interface control board. if you pull the washer out and remove the 3 screws coming in from the back of the top panel. the top panel will pull straight back, up, and off. check all the wire connections between the two control board and make sure they are all secure. if everything looks good, then the interface control board may need to be replaced.
f01 e02 means that your motor control board is not reading the tachometer on your motor when it tries to turn the motor. it thinks that the motor is struggling. open the door and turn the basket to make sure it spins freely.

What do these 2 codes mean on my maytag washer , F06 and E02?


The error code E02 and F06 on a Maytag washer could mean that the hot water solenoid went out. It could also mean that that the hot water control is not working properly.

What does Error code F06 mean


Try this:
Possible Causes / Procedure1. Verify the shipping system including shipping bolts, spacers
and cables are removed.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections between the drive motor and
the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the
Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
5. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor.
6. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.
