The following link explains how to troubleshoot the "F06" error code:

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

The first step in toubleshooting this problem is to check all the connector plugs between the Drive Motor, MCU and CCU. Check for loose connections and then unplug each connector and plug them back in (one at a time) to ensure they are snug and making good contact.

NOTE: You only to check the connectors that affect the drive motor and MCU circuitry.

If the tachometer is determined to be the cause of the problem, it is part of the MCU. The MCU will require replacement. For more in depth troubleshooting tips refer to your tehcnical data sheet that came with the washer. It is located inside the washer behind the lower toe panel. You will need to locate and remove the screws under the bottom front edge of the toe panel. Once removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet isn't located directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. The tech sheet includes all error codes, test points, dianostic procedures and helpful illustrations to assist in troubleshootingwasher stops and displays F06 - 2.gif and repair of your washer.

If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know.

NOTE: For better access to the toe panel screws, you can prop the two front feet of the washer up. (A 2x4 works real well for this).

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.

F6????


The F06 error code on the HE3 elite is a tachometer error. Per the tech sheet, it says to check all connections and continuity between the MCU, CCU and Drive Motor. The tech sheet says normal reading is at 6 ohms.

Often fails to execute spin cycle with error F06


THE F6 MEANS THE CONTROL IS NOT GETTING A READING FROM THE TACHOMETER ON THE MOTOR. CHECK THE CONNECTIONS FROM THE MOTOR TO THE MOTOR CONTROLLER,(THE CONTROL BOARD MOUNTED TO THE BASE).

Errore F6


Errore F6 (F06) significa problemi con il motore, o con gli ingranaggi di trasmissione del motore.
La scheda di controllo della tua lavatrice rileva che il motore non sta girando alla velocita' richiesta o e' guasto.

Di solito , quando questo si verifica il tecnico controlla il motore, la trasmissione (motor coupling), l'unita di controllo del motore MCU (motor control unit), e sostituisce la parte difettosa.

Controlla questo link per avere piu dettagli su come risolvere il problema.

Non dimenticarti di votare la soluzione, possibilmente con quattro rombi azzurri.

Grazie.
