Hi,

An explanation of your error code can be found at the following link:

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

In a nut shell, usually one of the motor windings fails, causing the Drive Motor to not rotate at the correct rpm, or not at all. Or, the Motor Control Unit fails. Both are simple repairs and can be accomplished by the average do-it-yourselfer. If you wish to attempt this repair, let me know and I can give you the steps required to complete it.

These parts can be found at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Pump and Motor Parts" heading on the next page. The MCU will be listed as item number 1 (part #8181693). The Drive Motor is listed as item number 16 (part #8182793). You can also try repairclinic.com, pcappliancerepair.com, and partsstore.com for comparative pricing. If you require further assistance, please let me know.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

After starting the wash cycle, the machine will stop and 06 will flash then F will flash. The washer will not complet the cycle


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error F06 in your whirlpool duet 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.

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.

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.

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.

WASHER STOPS WORKING AND FLASHES 06 F


F06
Drive motor tachometer error
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.

I turn the control knob to rince/spin, the machine froze


I believe the f06 is a clogged pump. You should be able to take off the bottom panel via 3 screws on the bottom of the panel. Inside should be 3 inch diameter white twist cap. Open it, but be ready with towels cause waters gonna come out. Thats the pump trap, it catches everything before hitting the pump. Hope that helps. Dave www.washermd.com

Whirlpool GHW9400L4


f06 is an error pertaining to the motor control board loacated behind the lower acess panel mounted in the left fron corner, first check for loose wire connection, sometimes alot of water/moisture will trip the control, remove and refit the wire harness leading to the control a few times and look for physiacal damage to board as well.
