Error code F06 means 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
1/ Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the Motor ControlUnit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
2/ Check the Drive Motor
3/ Check the MCU
4/ Check the Wire Harness
Replace failed component or contact an authorized repair agent.
F6 would mean the water is not getting heated. I am not sure which model you have but if there is only a cold water inlet connection then either heater or thermostat is faulty. If you have both hot and cold water inlet then you may have to check if hot water is getting in at right temperature. Easiest way to confirm is to run dishwasher in cold cycle (short rinse) and see if it goes through. The heater would get used in warm/ hot wash cycles and drying.

First off, I don't think the model number in the post is correct as the WFL2060 only gives flashing L.E.D. for error codes, so I suspect it is likely a WFR2460 or other that does have an L.E.D. display for digital error codes.
If you could confirm your model number it could save a lot of potentially reduntant questions and answer's.
Based on what you've described "stuck midway in the cycle and gives a code 3" you've got an issue with the door lock, at least as detected by the control.
This means there may or may not be a problem. The first step is to unplug the unit from either your dryer or the wall, whatever the case may be in your set up.
Leave it unplugged for several minutes and plug it in again. Try the machine though a cycle with no items/clothing in it and see how it goes.
Let me know what you find and we can move forward from there.

What is the model number of this unit. Should be inside the door on the frame. If you take off the bottom panel, there is a tech sheet in there that will tell you what that means. I don't know that one off the top of my head and I can't get at my work P.C.right now. It'll give good detail of what to look for on that tech sheet Let me know if you have any questions.
Take off the bottom panel (unplug unit first!) and unscrew the cap on the drain cylinder, be sure to have plenty of towels to soak up the water! pull out the center piece and check out all the treasures stored inside. Be sure to use a flashlight and lift up the black hose behind it to get any leftovers in the hose. I just did it today and could not believe how much stuff was in there...coins. pens, buttons, lost of wet lint had it clogged. The clothes finally don't smell!
