"F6" is a Motor Speed error code. This is commonly attributed to either a broken or slipped drive belt, defective Drive Motor, bad Motor Control Unit (MCU), and/or the interconnecting wiring. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608706-f06_error_code

First, remove the back panel of the unit and make sure the drive belt is not broken, or has not slipped off the drum pulley.

Then, remove the top panel of the washer and check all the connector plugs between the Drive Motor, MCU and Central Control Unit (CCU). Check for loose connections and then unplug each connector and plug them back in (one at a time) to ensure they are snug and making good contact. The top panel comes off by removing the three screws that hold it in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then off.

NOTE: You only need to check the connectors that affect the drive motor and MCU circuitry.

The MCU has a tachometer mounted on it. If it is determined to be the cause of the problem, it is considered part of the MCU and cannot be replaced separately. The MCU is not serviceable and will require replacement.

Next, check the motor windings to ensure they are reading the proper resistance. Followed by continuity checks of all the interconnecting wiring between the drive motor, MCU and CCU. You should not need a service manual because each one of these washers comes with a technical data sheet.

For more in depth troubleshooting tips refer to your tech sheet located inside the washer behind the lower toe panel. You will need to locate and remove the screws under the bottom front edge of the toe panel. Once removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet isn't located directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. The tech sheet includes all error codes, test points, diagnostic procedures and helpful illustrations to assist in troubleshooting and repair of your washer.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartrsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.



If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

What is the error F6


Your owner's manual (see link below) suggests unplugging it for a few minutes then trying again. F6 is usually a problem in the controller / circuit board. If it still has the error message, it needs to be serviced. To find the Amana authorized servicer in your area, contact your local distributor or contact the Amana ComServ Support Center at 866-426-2621 or commercialservice@amana.com. Owner's Manual: http://edge.maytag.com/AmanaCommercial/12695301.pdf I appreciate your rating of this answer. Good luck!
