This error is related to the drive motor. An error with the Motor or associated connectors/harness can generate this error. In most cases replacing the motor will fix the problem.
Temporary fix can be re-seating connectors and limited success has been achevied with harness replacement. Some people have been able to get it to work by disconnecting from mains overnight... but this may only last one or two washes before having to be done again.

SOURCE: F06 error code on Whirlpool duet washer

I have the whirlpool Duet 9150 with the same issue. I removed, reseated and reconnected every connector at least 4 times with the same random result of F06 to the point where it no longer finished the load. I then removed the motor control board again and sprayed it down with electronic cleaner along with all connections by disconnecting them , spraying them down and then reconnect and connected a few times to ensure good contact. I then tried again and the F -06 code came back. I then ordered the board for $ 150 online . When the new board arrived 4 days later, my wife tried the washer one more time and it worked. I have performed over 2 dozen loads . The board was never replaced. It appeared that spraying the board and connectors worked.

What is error code F06


The "F06" fault code indicates a drive motor error. This means the control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down.

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

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:
