What is an F6 on my duet washer? I already

What is an F6 on my duet washer? I already changed the mother board it was $180.00, it seems to wash a light load, but if I put in three pairs of jeans, it starts, and eventually will come to a F6 code before entering into spin. Could it be a tired motor? Model GHW9400PL1

Three things.... could be the motor, could also be the MCU (  motor control unit ), could be the wiring harness .  check the wiring harness between the speed sensor at the motor and the MCU.  i have run into all of those being bad on different machines.

Hi we have a Whirlpool duet Model ghw9300 and i have already replaced the circuit board once about a year ago it was flashing f6 code,now it is doing it again and when it shuts down it drain all the water...


F6 : 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

Whirlpool duet washing machine


The Duet washer is a good machine, just unfortunate Whirlpool engineers used oxidative circuit board coatings. All the circuit board connections are oxidizing causing the machines to have faulty connections. We have fixed the problem using this information.
UNPLUG the machine first . Take the top off (3 screws in the back) , remove the mother board box from the frame housing and remove the lid. Now you can see the circuit board.
Carefully remove ONLY one (clip plug-in) at a time. Scrap with a (knife or sandpaper or steel wool ) the edge connector where that plug was, on the circuit board removing the oxidated metal (it may not look oxidated but must be cleaned), Next put ( vaseline or mineral oil) on the edge connector where that plug was, NOTE: Vaseline or mineral oil is a non-conductive oil and will not effect electronic operation but will prevent further oxidation and the erratic operation of the mother board will cease.
Now do the next plug and repeat until completed.
NOTE: We recommend only one plug at a time so you do not get confused where each plug belongs.
Put the cover back on the mother board box and reattach to the frame, then put the lid back on and screw it down. End of any problems.
