Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I'm getting a F06 error message.

The first few times I was able to pause the load, then restart and it would finish. Now it won't go past the first 5 minutes of the load.

Kenmore Front Load Washer won't complete cycle F06


Have you cleaned your machine lately? They make an in wash boost- it gets rid of the extra suds built up inside the machine that you cant see but your machine detects it and causes faults such as that. Also, there is a small wire on the control board that may need replaced if it keeps kicking the error code.

Frigidaire washer won't finish cycle


Hello Ellen Greer - This particular issue can be caused by quite a few reasons. Washer could be experiencing a communication error from the main control board, faulty door lock assembly, faulty pump or the timer itself is not operating correctly. Did you notice a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned or could possibly have another issue with the door lock assembly or pressure switch. You can also press and hold the start/pause and cancel button together at the same time for approximately 30 seconds to display an error code on the LED. What error code does it display? However, I would suggest contacting a professional to accurately diagnose the washer.

My kenmore Elite HE3t Giving a code F 06


"F06" is a Motor Speed error code. This is an indication that there is a problem with the Drive Motor, Tachometer, Motor Control Unit (MCU), Central Control Unit (CCU) and/or interconnecting wiring between the all these components. The following link explains:

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

I would begin by checking all the connector plugs between the CCU, MCU and Drive Motor to ensure none of them are loose or have corroded contacts.

Read through the link and follow the steps provided. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps.

NOTE: The majority of the time this failure is attributed to a bad tachometer which is located on the MCU. If defective, the MCU must be replaced. There is a technical data sheet that comes with the washer. It is located inside the washer behind the lower toe panel directly below the door. The panel comes off by removing the screws located under bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet is not located directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. Included are all the diagnostics and troubleshooting advice for your washer, including diagrams to show test points. HINT: For better access to the screws you can prop the two front feet of the washer up using a 2 x 4.

F06 error code on Whirlpool duet washer


I have the whirlpool Duet 9150 with the same issue. I removed, reseated and reconnected every connector at least 4 times with the same random result of F06 to the point where it no longer finished the load. I then removed the motor control board again and sprayed it down with electronic cleaner along with all connections by disconnecting them , spraying them down and then reconnect and connected a few times to ensure good contact. I then tried again and the F -06 code came back. I then ordered the board for $ 150 online . When the new board arrived 4 days later, my wife tried the washer one more time and it worked. I have performed over 2 dozen loads . The board was never replaced. It appeared that spraying the board and connectors worked.

F06


I recently had this problem and was able to resolve it, although not without some trial and error. This error code indicates an issue with 1 of 3 parts in the washer - the CCU (central control unit), the MCU (motor control unit) or the motor itself. There is no way to tell which is causing the issue without replacing them one at a time. I started by changing the motor based on other posts I had seen on-line. That was not the problem. Then replaced the CCU - again, not the cause of the problem. Lastly changed out the MCU and that solved the problem. I ended up putting the old CCU back and returning the new one.

My suggestion would be to start with the CCU, move to the MCU, and go to the motor last - the boards are easier to both replace and to return if you find they are not the issue. Good luck.
