Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE3 Front Load Washer
Terry, here's the fault definition and the checks/repairs for it... F/06; Drive Motor Tachometer Error "The control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes." Check/Repair; * Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU) * Check the Drive Motor * Check the MCU * Check the Wire Harness If you can next time, please provide the entire model number in your post so we can help a bit more. Kenmore doesn't actually manufacture anything, they purchase their units from manufacturers and slap the Kenmore label on them. The model number is located just inside the door on the frame of the unit.

The "F" variables (F4-F16) are for electrical problems. You should select Pause/Cancel twice then select Drain/Spin if there is excessive water in the washer. Re-select cycle and press start. According to the manual, if the problem remains, call for service.

In the article, on checking the drain pump, it recommends draining the wash drum. How do you do this if the door is locked and the buttons won't yield any results or unlock the door?

I had the same issue with a brand new wash. The issue I found was the installers installed the drain line too low. The drain line needs to be a minimum of 39" above the floor. Hope this helps -- Kent

LF means Long Fill, this error flashes when the water level does not change for a period of time after the valves are turned on OR water has disengaged the basket but control does not detect a water level change. Check whether water supply is connected and turned on. Make sure the hose is not blocked and hose screen is clear. If so make sure pressure hose connection to machine/motor control is fine. Also check the continuity of water inlet valve, use a multimeter to check the continuity. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.
