    f06 comes up before it can finish spinning

  • redirene Nov 20, 2008

    i had this problem and it turned out that the spin would not go. our washer is only 15 months old and just out of warranty, go figure! i had sears come out after three failed shows one finally made it! i threw him a parade! anyways there is a box in the bottom of the washer it is white and it cost $215, our washer also liked to flash the F11 and the controls wouldnt work only one would even light up so the control board was another $251. our service man went back and forth with sears explaining it was impossible for us to damage and the washer is not old and they should pay for the parts! which sears ended up doing! this washer looks like it is known for it problems and that is stressful as we are a large family and very dependant on the washer working! i hope this helps. my husband was effortlessly able to change the white box and the control unit, basically it was a process of unplugging and then repugging into the new units! Good luck and get the extended warranty!

I had the same code F6 and what I found was that the pump screen had a rag in it. The screen is located behind the front panel next to the pump.

What does and F6 error code mean on a whirlpool duette front loading washing machine mean and how do I fix it?


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.

Fagor dishwasher showing f6


Please check fault codes on page 70 in this manual.
http://www.fagor.co.uk/documents/LFU-65iT.pdf

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.

What might cause a flashing PF code midway through a cycle? Circuit breaker is fine. Any advice greatly appreciated.


Stop trying to restart it! There is obviously a fault so check your manual. If not in there contact Manufacturer or service agent.

Gets stuck midway in the cycle and gives a code 3


Hello rmurray1, welcome to Fixya.

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.

Thanks for visiting "fixya" and good luck.

If this indeed solved your problem please take a second to rate the info and leave a testimony accordingly. If more assistance is required, let me know.

Midway through heating my lunch, my microwave started making a funny noise and "F6" came up on the display. Now I can't get it to work. What does this mean and how do I fix it?


The F6 failure code on a Whirlpool microwave means the cook relay on your control circuit board.

We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or two with a one-year guarantee.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Feel free to contact me
directly (and please mention your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

My Maytag epic he has F6 code


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.

Kenmore HE4t Won't continue drain cycle Code F6 & beeping


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!
