This is the code for " drive motor tachometer error ".  areas to check are the cable that connects the motor to the MCU (motor control unit ), the motor itself and the MCU itself.  any one of these could be bad.  technician might be your best and least expensive bet rather than replacing all 3 of above.

SOURCE: e40 error code

The E40 error code indicates a loss of electrical power usually but not always due to the door not shutting properly or not locking. But, since you smelled burning it could be any electrical short that blew a fuse and shut the machine down. It could also be the motor windings with the internal overload protector shutting it down.

SOURCE: error code F11 washer stops mid-cycle

Hi,

The F11 code means that communication between the CCU circuit board at the top of the machine and the motor control circuit board at the bottom of the machine has been lost. The problem most often found is cold solder joints on the CCU board that make and break causing the F11 code and sometimes an FdL code. To fix this you need to remove the CCU circuit board at the top of the machine and have the larger solder points of the relays and the spade connectors resoldered. If your not to handy with soldering you could just print out this response and a good appliance repair shop should be able to help you out. Good Luck.

What does E27 on display mean


Bosch washers come with built-in sets of error codes used to diagnose and correct common problems. The E27 code isn't often listed in Bosch manuals but relates to the washer door lock

The E27 error flashes on the washer LCD screen and stops the current load. Unplug your washer for 30 minutes and then plug it back in to reset the code.

Open and close the door two or three times to reset the sensor. Sometimes the door has been closed too hard and the sensor reading fails.

Hello,
Count the number of green flashes(1st number of error code). count number of red flashes(2nd number of error code).
Common codes are:
E10 or 11 water pressure faults.
E20 filter/pump faults.
E30 pressure switch/heater faults.
E40 door switch faults.
E50 motor faults.
E60 Heater faults.
These are some of the error codes but there are many variations on some codes depending on the model.Hpoe this has been some help.

Whirlpool frontload duet washer F 6 problem


hello cjkcp
Welcome to Fixya

You said, your washer (now 4 yrs old) occasionally stops mid cycle flashing F 6 code. Is this something we can fix or do I have to call a repair man?

F/06 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.
  • Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check the Drive Motor
  • Check the MCU
  • Check the Wire Harness

I believe this needs a hands on tech to daignose this. Unless you feel you undrstand the problem your self?

Thank you for using our service for advice.
