The error is an indication a motor speed problem. You will need to check the following:

- Check the wiring harness. Verify all connections between the Drive Motor, Motor Control Unit (MCU), and Central Control Unit (CCU).

NOTE: The MCU is a circuit board located in the vicinity of the Drive Motor on the bottom rear of the washer. To access the MCU, you will need to remove the back panel of the washer.

NOTE: The CCU is the main computer for the washer and is located behind the wash tub. You will need to remove the top panel to access the CCU. This is accomplished by removing the three screws in the back of the washer that hold the top in place. Once the screws are removed, the top panel will slide back, then lift off.

- Check the Drive Motor. Perform a continuity check of the Drive Motor windings. Remove the connector plug and check across pins 1 to 2, 2 to 3, and 1 to 3. All readings should be approximately 6 ohms. HINT: You can also take this reading by removing connector 2 from the MCU and measuring across pins 1, 2 and 3. If the readings are good, this will also prove the wiring and connector good.

- Check the MCU. The connectors are numbered 1 to 3 (L to R). That is, with the MCU installed, connector 1 is on the bottom, followed by 2 in the middle, and 3 on top.

Connector 1 - is the serial communications link between the MCU and CCU and has three wires. At the opposite end, this will be the 2nd connector from the rear on the left-hand side of the CCU.
Connector 2 - is the link between the MCU and the Drive Motor. Pins 1, 2, and 3 on this connector are the Drive Motor windings. Pins 4 and 5 are for the tachometer.
Connector 3 – is the primary power connector. Pins 1 to 2 should read 120VAC with the door in the locked position. Pin 3 is ground. At the opposite end, this is the 4th connector from the right on the front of the CCU.

NOTE: All the connector pins are numbered R to L.

If your continuity readings are normal for the Drive Motor and you have verified all connectors, replace the MCU.

If any of the Drive Motor windings indicate readings higher that 6 ohms, replace the Drive Motor.

Brother MFC 8440 showing error code MACHINE ERROR 6A or 6E


Hi.

Both errors are signalling a temperature problem in fuser assembly.

The solution below applies to several Brother models. Depending on the model, the reset procedure may be different.

Brother Error 6A means that the thermistor located in the fuser assembly did not detect that required temperature had been reached in valid time.

First you can try entering in maintenancemode and clearing the error. If that does not work, that means that the thermistor, the lamp, or the whole fuser assembly must be replaced.

Error 6E is similar. 6E is diplayed when thermistor detect that the fuser temperature is not going up at least at 2°C every for 5 seconds.

As for 6A, first reset the code. If the error does not clear the fault can concern the thermistor, the fuser lamp or the power supply to the fuser assembly.

To reset the error code follows these steps:

1. Press MENU *,2,8,6,4 . Press keys within 2 seconds.
2. The machine beeps and display shows “maintenance".
3. Look for Init or Reset on menu, and enter the corresponding parameter.
4. To exit press 99.

This procedure above usually works on MFC-8xxx model. On other models you may need to do the following:

1) Unplug machine.
2) Hold down menu key. Plug in machine.
3) Release menu key.
4) Enter 91
5) Enter 99

or:

1) Disconnect the printer power cord.
2) Hold down the menu key while plugging in machine at same time.
3) Enter 99 while holding down menu key
4) After menu says " wait" push the stop/exit button to get out of the maintenance mode.


If that does not work, it means that the fuser assembly must be replaced. Here the part for MFC-8440: Genuine Brother Mfc8440 Fuser Assembly.


Regards.

Samsung washing machine error code is 6e unable to find this code


The heater isnt getting hot and the heater element is showing as faulty, hence the 6E fault code on the control panel.

There will be no short term cure for this problem either, the cabinet will need to be partially dismantled so you can gain access to the heating element and test it with a multimeter for continuity (Full electrical circuit)

You will most likely have to replace a faulty heater element in this instance. The 6E shows up for this reason. The controller has sent power to the element, but it hasnt heated at all according to the thermostat which measures the temperature (Seperate fault code for thermostat problems)

Samsung p1453 error code 6e?


6e fault is saying that the temperature is not high enough, this is most likely a malfunctioning temperature sensor or an issue inside the electronics.

My machine keps stopping and giving a 6E message


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error 6E is a ball sensor error which is displayed due to loose Ball Sensor Connector and/or when the Ball Sensor goes bad/is out of order. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

6E error means ambient temperature is too low.
A problem that occurs when the potentiometer connected in series with the thermistor on the microprocessor board is damaged.
