"F6" is a Motor Speed error code. This would be why you're experiencing problems with the drum spinning. The following link explains:

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

I would begin first by checking all connectors between the drive motor and motor control unit (MCU) to make sure they are still plugged in and don't show any signs of corrosion. I have experienced problems where the connector plugs came loose due to vibration.

You may also attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU) to see if this error code could be erroneous. The CCU is the main computer for the washer. To reset, simply unplug the washer for 30 minutes. If the error code returns following a CCU reset, then you have a legitimate problem.

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

I'd like to suggest another option that involves removing the front panel at the bottom of the machine. The pump is behind the panel. The pump often stores change, paper clips, socks etc and will stop the machine from spinning. Things slip behind the gasket and get stuck in the pump. In top loading machines socks went up and out and were never seen again via the drain hose for example.
Look under the bottom front panel. Remove each of the three screws. Put a towel under the panel. Turn the black plastic handle until the unit comes out. Clean this out and then replace.

It should work now.

Drive Belt Installation on a Whirlpool Duet or Kenmore Elite Front Loader


This advice is on how to replace the drive belt on Whirlpool Duet and Kenmore Elite front loader washing machines. To replace the drive belt on a Whirlpool Duet washer, follow these steps:

1. Unplug the washer and turn the washing machine around so you can access the back panel. Remove the rear panel by locating and loosening the screws around the perimeter of the panel.

2. Loop the drive belt on the drive motor pulley with the ribbed side on the pulley. Leave a one-groove gap between the belt and the end of the pulley.

3. Take both hands and pull straight up on the belt and place on the drum pulley beginning on the left hand side.

4. Hold the belt firmly in place and slowly turn the drum pulley to the right while holding the belt in place. The belt will eventually align and hold in place on the drum pulley.

NOTE: This may require some effort to get the belt in place.

If you have any questions, or are uncertain if these steps apply to your washer (some newer model Maytag front loaders are now manufactured by Whirlpool) please provide me with a model number and I can let you know if these steps apply. I hope this information is helpful.

My Kenmore Elite Oasis washer unbalanced signal seems to be very sensitive. Only after several tries of readjusting the load to get it really even that the washer will spin without stopping. I made sure...


If the washer throws an UL error code with out any clothes in the washer then the issue must be concerned with the mechanical alignment inside the machine or a bad CCU.

The most common problem which can cause this is some sort of mechanical hinderance which does not allow the basket to move freely.

The suspension system which holds the basket in its place might be faulty and causing the unbalancing. In this model i think there are plastic ring at the bottom of the basket . Even if they are worn out or moved out of position it may cause the UL error code you are facing

I need to lock the drum on my Kenmore front loader for moving.


They don't lock to anything - they just slide in.

You need to check if the Spray Arms are knocking against an item in a basket. If the source of noise cannot be determined, run a program without plates or glassware. If the noises continue, let me know for further investigation.
