Thanks for using FixYa. Error F06 in your whirlpool duet indicates that the control is unable to properly detect the motor speed and so the washer shuts down. This usually occurs during high speed spin and the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes. To resolve this issue you’ll have to check the wire harness connections between the Driver motor and the Motor control unit (MCU). If that is fine then check the connection between the MCU & central control unit (CCU), replace the part that has gone bad. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

What does this error message mean?

Dear BreeAnn,

I would reboot the machine. That means. Turn it off pull the plug and restart or cold Boot Strap. Further open your manual and look for a factory reset. Remove the disc if it came with one and reinstall it.

Save all your creations to file if special programs are developed before the new startup. Manually assist the machine through a hand cycle. Moreover, check to see if all the e-stops are satisfied. That means switches stuck open or closed.

Blow out dust from working areas. It appears from a remote view. Having worked fine. It is a matter of oversight. I hope you get back into creating soon.

The rest of the links are search sites. If you become stumped.

Flashes error code F06

Check the wire harness that goes to all your connectors on the Motor, MCU, and CCU. I have seen a loose wire connector do this F06 error.

If all checks ok, then its a faulty CCU that needs to be replaced. Here is the part.

Indesit 123 FAULT F06

I had this error and engineer said the meaning of the codes on the web are wrong as they don't like to disclose their real code meanings for pure protectionism reasons. F06 on IWD7145 is a burnt out door interlock IDC error. He replaced the part number C00085194 (replacement door interlock) and microritardator part number 085194 and it works ok now.

F06 error message with flashing remaining minutes

Here is what the manufacture says about F06 - my comments will follow these.

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 three

Possible Causes / Procedure
1. Verify the shipping system including shipping bolts,
spacers and cables are removed.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections between the drive
motor and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between
the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
5. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive
6. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.

Phil's comments--->

If you just set the machine up be sure the shipping bolts have been removed, this is the most common reason for F06.

Other than that there is some type of communication error between the three main components (motor, Motor Control Unit and Central Control Unit) or the wire connectors between the three.

If you have had the unit a while and it is not related to the shipping bolts I would recommend calling Whirlpool

F06 error

Unplugging it sometimes corrects the problem. However, it must be unplugged for SEVERAL minutes.then start it again i think it ll set it ok becuase sometimes it all sets it right.
Check the wire harness that goes to all your connectors on the Motor, MCU, and CCU. I have seen a loose wire connector do this F06 error.

If all checks ok, then its like a faulty CCU, check your owners manual, some are covered under warranty for up to 5 yrs.

now check the CCU,MCU and Motor any one of these must be faulty that will only lead to F06 error.
