Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

My Kenmore Elite H3 (washer machine) is putting an F 06 code every day, since a while ago. I reviewed the manual for help and couldn't find anything. First I choose the program, and about 5 minutes later a red intermitent light with a bip sound appears ''F'' then ''06'' I cannot make it wash, it drains the water but it does not spin, so everything is wet and dirty! Can you help? How can I do to fix it?

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: Only 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.

The fault codes are not listed in the Owner's Manual. 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 troubleshootingMy Kenmore Elite H3 (washer machine) is putting an - 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).

Code 06


In the manual for a Kenmore washer the instruction for an F06 code (electrical problem) is :

Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Select DRAIN/SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer. Re-select cycle and press START.

After that, you might try unplugging then plugging it in again.

Kenmore Elite H3 control buttons - some work some don't


The diagnostic function will not help you if your user interface board (UIB) is acting up because to put into diagnostic you have to select drain spin, then the no spin option, and hit the prewash button 4 times.

It sounds like your UIB is the problem.

Kenmore Elite H3 Error Code F71


The computer needs to be reset most likely. You might try turning it off, uplugging the washer, leaving it off for a bit and starting over. They are touchy little machines, I've found, not just your brand either. Mine comes on everytime the power blinks on and off in a storm :0) Best of all have a look in your manual and if you don't have it go to the manufacturer's site and download a new one or look for support there. Good Luck to you.

I have an H3 washing machine and the rubber bellow lip that seals the front door from leaking has torn causing water to leak out. Can this bellow be repaired or easily removed and replaced without calling a service repairman.

F/DL means the door lock.  If you take the bottom panel off (there are 3 screws), you can reach up and pull down on a lever to release the lock.  Next you need to take off the top of the washer (there are 3 screw on the back).  ONce you have the panel removed, you can see the wires and where they plug in at the back right area.  If you just jiggle them, you can get it to work again.  I am doing this right now until I can get a new computer.  My neighbor has a front loading washer of a different brand and experienced the same problem I am having now.  She is the one who told me how to fix it.

Try shutting off the machine. Switch off Usually the door opens in 2 minutes or so. Do not force open the door. There may be instructions in your book to open the door manually. It could mean unscrewing somewhere.
