HI, this is a Drive motor tachometer error(F-06)


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.

Potential Causes

• Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the Motor ControlUnit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
• Check the Drive Motor
• Check the MCU
• Check the Wire Harness

Replace failed component.

    In most cases, this will be the fault of a defective Motor control board. aka(MCU)

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:

Front loader washer stopped at 39 min and stated F 06??? what does this mean?


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 like a faulty CCU.
Here is the CCU to order.

Washer keeps stopping. getting a F 06 flashing. why?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error F06 in your washer indicates that the control is unable to properly detect the motor speed and so the washer shuts down. This usually occurs during high speed spin and the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes. To resolve this issue you’ll have to check the wire harness connections between the Driver motor and the Motor control unit (MCU). If that is fine then check the connection between the MCU & central control unit (CCU), replace the part that has gone bad. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Code 06


In the manual for a Kenmore washer the instruction for an F06 code (electrical problem) is :

Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Select DRAIN/SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer. Re-select cycle and press START.

After that, you might try unplugging then plugging it in again.

What is the problem when I get F06


F/06 says: Drive Motor Tachometer Error. Check Wire Harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and Motor Control Unit and between the Motor Control Unit and the Central Control Unit. Check the Drive Motor, Motor Control Unit, and Wire Harness. Hope this machine is still under warranty! Good Luck!

I have a Kenmore Washer HE3 and it stops - F and 06 flashes.


"F06" is a Motor Speed Error. The following link explains:

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

Start with the obvious things that you can rule out first. Since your problem is intermittent at times, you may just have a loose or corroded connection between the Drive Motor and/or Main Control Unit. Check all your connections.

Another thing to try before delving too deep into troubleshooting is to unplug the washer for at least 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). This is the main "brain" for your washer. Sometimes these problems can easily be resolved by resetting the CCU to clear momentary glitches. If the problem reoccurs after a reset, then you have a genuine problem and will need to investigate further. The link I provided should give you the advice you need. If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

F-06 error code


ck all wiring connections from motor to motor control to main control on top rear rail f06 means main control can't detect motor speed when you say mcu i assume you mean the motor control bd next to motor they and the motor both have given very few problems in our area i suspect the ccu (central control unit) is the most likely cause
