Question about Whirlpool GHW9400 Duet Washer
Six year old unit. Problem with F6 code about two months ago but reset after unplugging and had been working well.
Today the wash cycle stops after about 25 seconds and time light starts blinking. Pushed end of cycle button over 3 seconds - sometimes it worked but then same problem. Unplugged washer and after waiting up to 15 minutes and plugging back in then same problem - did several times waiting a shorter duration. Unplugged then disconnected and reconnected wire connections after removing top of washer. Control unit? Timer? Help
Thanks for using FixYa. Error F6 is drive motor tachometer error, which means that the control is unable to detect the motor speed properly and so the machine will shut down. If this happens at high speed spin the door will get unlocked after 3 minutes. To resolve the issue you’ll need to:
However, from what you have described the issue seems to be with the control unit that should be replaced, but still check all the above things. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
