Question about Maytag Washing Machines
Posted by Anonymous on
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.

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. The images below will help with access on some Maytag front load washers.
