Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Half way done and throws that code it seems like the drum wont turn also even if u try to move it by hand i would app. any help on this!!
"F6" is a Motor Speed error code. This would be why you're experiencing problems with the drum spinning. The following link explains:
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.
