Hi there
an F06 problem usually relates to a long drain problem the solution could mean one of the following but best to star with the least expensive first.
1.ensure that you have emptied the clog filter ( this filter usUSA.y at the bottom left of the machine behind a small door,
place a cloth on ground, unscrew the plug, some water comes out, and hopefully something that has prevented it draining correctly.
2. Ensure their is no kinks in the drainage hose ( usually a 1inch flexy hose at the back of the machine that will run into a hard plastic drainage waste pipe)
3. The pump may be a goner
4. If the heater has failed the washing machine will not drain your clothes correctly, this is an often overlooked cause when it comes to draining problems
hopefully your problem will be number one or two (DIY jobs)
good luck either way.

06 error code 110 on an affinity washing machine Frigidaire

Hello Jenny, thank you for your inquiry!
I understand that your Frigidaire washer is displaying an error code of "06". I am unable to locate that specific error code and it could be invalid. I would suggest performing a reset on your washer and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord for at least ten minutes. If you continue to experience an issue with the error code you need to speak with a professional technician for proper assistance. I hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

Kenmore He4t front load washer f 06 error code

This answer is actually from Sears Parts Direct: The F06 error code
indicates a drive motor tachometer error. This error is virtually impossible to accurately diagnose. The most suspect components that would cause this failure code are the drive motor, the motor control unit (control board) or the wire harness. In some instances, this could be caused by severely overloading the washer so that it cannot spin properly. Make sure that the washer is not overloaded. Another problem that could cause the error code to be displayed intermittently would be a loose wire harness connection that is affected by vibration when the washer is spinning at high speed. Good lucks, hope it helps

Read through the link provided and verify all your wiring and connections, first. Sometimes the problem is as simple as a loose plug. Make sure resistance checks are done with the washer unplugged. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
