SOURCE: I have a kenmore elite 3 that flashes f06

"F06" is a Motor Speed error code. This could indicate a problem with the drive motor, motor control unit (MCU), interconnecting wiring, or the tachometer (part of the MCU). The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r714929-f06_error_whirlpool_duet_kenmore_elite

I would begin by checking all the wiring and connector plugs between the MCU and drive motor. Vibration from the washer can cause the connectors to come loose. Also check them for any signs of corrosion that may be causing poor contact.

Measure the motor windings to see if they are still within specs. Bad motor windings could generate the error code as well.

Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: What does the F06 code mean? My machine appears

The F06 code usually indicates a motor related problem. Some potential causes are loose/corroded connections of the wiring harness between the motor and the motor control unit (MCU) or between the motor control unit (MCU) and the central control unit (CCU). Sometimes this problem can be fixed by removing and reseating the electrical connections at these locations, but unfortunately I believe that your motor is shot. I say that because one of the ways to test the motor is to remove belt and turn pulley by hand. It should rotate freely. Then, run motor without belt (which you said you did). If the motor will run without the belt, but won't run under load (with the belt on), then this is a sign that the motor is bad. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

"F6" is a Motor Speed error problem. It is commonly attributed to either a broken or slipped drive belt, defective Drive Motor, bad Motor Control Unit (MCU), and/or the interconnecting wiring. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608706-f06_error_code

First, remove the back panel of the unit and make sure the drive belt is not broken, or has not slipped off the drum pulley.

Then, remove the top panel of the washer and check all the connector plugs between the Drive Motor, MCU and Central Control Unit (CCU). Check for loose connections and then unplug each connector and plug them back in (one at a time) to ensure they are snug and making good contact. The top panel comes off by removing the three screws that hold it in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then off.

NOTE: You only need to check the connectors that affect the drive motor and MCU circuitry.

The MCU has a tachometer mounted on it. If it is determined to be the cause of the problem, it is considered part of the MCU and cannot be replaced separately. The MCU is not serviceable and will require replacement.

Next, check the motor windings to ensure they are reading the proper resistance. Followed by continuity checks of all the interconnecting wiring between the drive motor, MCU and CCU. You should not need a service manual because each one of these washers comes with a technical data sheet.

For more in depth troubleshooting tips refer to your tech sheet located inside the washer behind the lower toe panel. You will need to locate and remove the screws under the bottom front edge of the toe panel. Once removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet isn't located directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. The tech sheet includes all error codes, test points, diagnostic procedures and helpful illustrations to assist in troubleshooting and repair of your washer.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartrsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.
If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Kenmore Front Load Washer won't complete cycle F06


Have you cleaned your machine lately? They make an in wash boost- it gets rid of the extra suds built up inside the machine that you cant see but your machine detects it and causes faults such as that. Also, there is a small wire on the control board that may need replaced if it keeps kicking the error code.

I have a kenmore he3t quiet pak4 front load washer. First of dhl code. I ordered a new door lock and put that in. Then I got a f06 code. Put back in old lock and still only get f06 code. The other...


Check the wire harness that goes to all your connectors on the Motor, MCU, and CCU. I have seen a loose wire connector do this F06 error.

If all checks ok, then its either a faulty MCU, or faulty drive motor.

My kenmore Elite HE3t Giving a code F 06


"F06" is a Motor Speed error code. This is an indication that there is a problem with the Drive Motor, Tachometer, Motor Control Unit (MCU), Central Control Unit (CCU) and/or interconnecting wiring between the all these components. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r714929-f06_error_whirlpool_duet_kenmore_elite

I would begin by checking all the connector plugs between the CCU, MCU and Drive Motor to ensure none of them are loose or have corroded contacts.

Read through the link and follow the steps provided. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps.

NOTE: The majority of the time this failure is attributed to a bad tachometer which is located on the MCU. If defective, the MCU must be replaced. There is a technical data sheet that comes with the washer. It is located inside the washer behind the lower toe panel directly below the door. The panel comes off by removing the screws located under bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet is not located directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. Included are all the diagnostics and troubleshooting advice for your washer, including diagrams to show test points. HINT: For better access to the screws you can prop the two front feet of the washer up using a 2 x 4.

F06 error


Check the drain pump. There may be something jammed it it, causing it to overload, and bringing up the fault code.
