Why does the washer stop during a load and "F 06"


Hello,

The F6 error code means that the computer on the control didnt detect that the motor reached a high speed on the spin cycle, sometimes it thinks the washer didnt spin fast enough because of a loose wire connection either on the motor or the control boards (motor &machine control) if you find that the washer did actually spin at high speed (clothes dont come out sopping wet at the end of cycle) the wire connections or the motor control board will be the potential causes of the F6 error code

Spin half the speed


Hi.

Depending on the make and model, and type of washer, you may need to test and eventually replace the following parts:


On top loads:


Variable speed motor .
Motor coupler.
Transmission.
Control board.
Motor control unit (if present)


On front load :


Variable speed motor .
Motor coupler.
Control board.
Motor control unit.


On top load the problem is often transmission or variable speed motor. On front load MCU or motor.

My fridaire front load washer will not spin at high speed


HI. Your unit is equipped with a Motor Speed Control Board. This board regulates the spin speed, with the help of a tachometer, which, is located and mounted on the motor. When this Control board is experiencing issues, the spin will not preform at optimal performance. I recommend to replace this Motor Control Board asap. Once replaced, the unit will spin properly.

Kenmore 417 FLW stuck in final spin cycle


It appears as though this is a known problem with the spin control board component, so ordering a new board should solve the problem.

Clothes come out wet


HI, this is a common issue that is easily fixed by, replacing the control unit. this control manages the motor functions during operations. if this unit is not spinning correctly, replace the Control unit. aka(motor control unit). In you washer, they call the motor control board a (Control Unit). replace this asap if possible. this will fix your washer. ADDITIONAL CHECKS--(Make sure that this unit is also draining water properly as well. this will cuase wet spin outs as well).

Won't spin or agitate - will pump water water out


This is caused by either a bad door switch or a speed control unit. There is no way to test the door switch but it is the cheapest to replace. Try that first then the speed control. The door lock switch hopefully does it. (even if it locks it can still be bad there is another switch inside.)

Washer wont spin


You may be right, but before you rule completely on the motor, have you checked the Spin Control (sometimes referred to as a Motor Control Unit)? My experience with this unit usually has the Spoin Control board going bad more frequently. There should be a tech sheet located inside the washer behind the front panel under the door somewhere. The tech sheet should include all steps necessary in determing how to rule whether the motor windings are good, or the whether Spin Control board has failed. If you decide to replace the parts yourself, you can find them at repairclinic.com and searspartsdirect.com. Repairclinic has better pricing, but Sears has better diagrams used in parts identification and troubleshooting. The parts you may need are as follows:

Repairclinic:
Item 1206430 Spin Control
Item 823073 Motor-sole

Searspartsdirect
Item 4 (p/n #134149220) Speed Control (Under "PANELS/HOSES" heading)
Item 19 (p/n # 131770600) Motor-sole (Under DRUM/MOTOR" heading)

Of course...you can do your own comparitive pricing if you don't wish to shop online. Just use the Sears part numbers as a reference.

I hope this helps. Post back and let me know if you need further assistance.
