Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE4t Front Load Washer
Kenmore Elite SmartWash HE4t : Everything works fine, except at about 20 minutes before end of cycle, gets a F6 fault during the spin cycle
F6 is a Drive Motor Error.
The CCU (control unit) does not detect that the motor is running.
Try tripping the circuit breaker or unplugging power cord for a couple of minutest and test again.
The error will likely come back. In that case there is a fault.
Fault can concern:
The motor control unit is a control board located in a sealed box inside the machine. The MCU is connected to motor on one side and to CCU on the other side.
The parts must be tested. A complete test is done inspecting boards, energizing motor, reading continuity on harness and contacts, reading voltage.
For safety reasons, testing must be done by a trained person.
