Performing a Fault Reset 14 will reset your WorkCentre and will help to clear error codes.

  1. Find the pink Clear button on the Control Panel of the WorkCentre.
  2. Find the button below the word Auto.
  3. Press these buttons in the following sequence: [Clear], [Auto], [Clear], [Auto] NOTE: All of the lights on the Control Panel should go out and the LED Display should go blank. If the lights do not go out, then repeat step 3 until they do. It may be necessary to increase or decrease the pace of the [Clear], [Auto], [Clear], [Auto] sequence.
  4. Press the [10's] key one time and the [1's] key four times to enter '14' in the LED Display, as if you were to make 14 copies.
  5. Press the green [Start] button.
  6. Press the pink [Clear] button two times.
  7. The WorkCentre should now warm up and come to ready.
  8. If the above steps do not clear the error code, repeat steps 3 to 6 a second time.

My kenmore washing machine is stopping mid-cycle and reading f6 on the panel

The F/06 error according to the official repair manual is a Motor Tachometer error . . the error is triggered because the main control board loses communication with the tachometer either a short in the wiring or a short in one of several other places. . The tachometer sits on the spindle of the motor and has two wires from the spindle to a wiring hub on the left side of the motor . . . two of the black wires are for the tach then feed to the MCU (Motor Control Unit) in the bottom left facing the washer which then feeds the info into the main control board which is at the top on the machine under the top cover. Some find that checking the connections with a volt meter is a starting point however in most cases you will not find issues with electrical continuity, the manual has the expected readings. The MCU is known to go bad in these machines so that would be the first suspect in resolving the error, however it could be the wiring, the motor or the main control board. The MCU costs around $200 so consider the possibility that it may not solve your issue. The error may even be sporadic only happening on heavier loads in the tub.

F6 error! Machine stops working. Flashes F6 and beeps.

The F6 error 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
• Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the Motor ControlUnit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU) • Check the Drive Motor • Check the MCU • Check the Wire Harness
Replace failed component.
Good Luck! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa!!

HI, the reason for the non responsive control is being caused by a major fault within the control circuits. the entire control board will need to be replaced. it has failed at this point.

Replacing the Oven control board will solve this issue.

Kenmore microwave

i fixed by unplugging the microwave with the door open. I plugged it back in and the F6 was gone. I was then able to set the clock and turn the light on/off . When I closed the microwave door, the F6 came back on and the microwave was making a humming noise. I slapped the side of the microwave near the keypad, and the F6 cleared from the readout and the humming stopped. The microwave is working fine now. Don't know why, except maybe slap on the side reset a relay or something. Anyway, I will never by a Sears Kenmore appliance for the rest of my life. The door rattles when you open a close it (like a part inside the door is broken) and this is the second time a fault code has appeared during use. I had GE Profile appliances at my last house, which are more $$ initial cost, but who wants to screw around buying a new microwave every four or five years. I'll happily spend a couple hundred more for the peace of mind and knowing that it will work during Thanksgiving dinner with the family over.
